The backstory that might help explain my tardy […]

Homemade Roasted Almond Butter

Remember what happened when I bought two giant jars of natural peanut butter? No? Turns out we’re not fans. I took one of the jars to Boy’s house (mostly so they couldn’t give it back!) and I resorted to making cookies with the other jar, really delicious cookies: Go See For Yourself Here. Given our […]
