  1. Those officially make me hungry. Well... not hungry. Those officially make me crave foods I shouldn't eat. That's more honest.

  2. Funny coz I am using condensed milk to make dulce de leche right now too! omg they look inviting! I should bookmark all these.. and like Kate said, those are foods I shouldn't it. But I will :|

  3. As if I freaking need someone cooking for me. Ugh. Whatever. Stay there.

  4. Um, hi... Lauren? PLEASE move to Michigan and cook for me. K? K, thanks.

  5. @Kate: Next week I promise to make something healthy!

    @Apfel: You should bookmark them! They're also good with out the chocolate chips.

    @Stacey: You're sending me mixed signals!!!!

  6. Sorry for the mixed signals. :)

    If you'd like to move to MI, I would be more than elated. Just please don't cook for me. Unless it's like totally delicious healthy stuff. But that's it.
