Happy belated Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful day and ate some incredible foods! Because this week/month has been so busy, I was not able to complete my recipe for the Daring Kitchen. This month's challenge was cannoli. It was hosted by Lisa Michele of Parsley, Sage, Desserts, and Line Drives. If you need any incentive to try making your own cannoli all you need to do is look at her pictures.
Oatmeal Coconut Butterscotch Cookies
It feels as though my kitchen is cookie central at the moment. My oven is pushing out batch after batch of bars and drop cookies and cut-outs. The smell is comforting but it's almost too much of a good thing.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
Did anyone know that the smaller you are the faster you gain weight? I am learning this the hard way. It has been so busy lately that I have cut back drastically on my workout routine and I have not been eating very well either. Usually I am a stickler for balancing portion control with time spent running/cardio.
