Easy Homemade Peanut Butter

October 2, 2014 duchessoffork 1

I’m not sure why I waited so long to make my own peanut butter. I’m fairly certain that our family keeps the peanut farmers of America in business. We eat more peanut butter than anyone I’ve ever seen. We put it on waffles, pancakes, crackers, spoons, finger …

Tomorrow Will Worry About Itself

September 29, 2014 duchessoffork 5

My counters are cluttered. There are piles of bills, leftover GoGo Squeeze pouches, and mismatched socks as far as the eye can see. I’m honestly not even sure what material our counters are made of at this point. I haven’t seen them in ages. My living room looks l …

Advocare 24 Day Challenge: Take Two

September 22, 2014 duchessoffork 2

Today is the start of my second Advocare 24 Day Challenge. I completed the challenge back in January and had great results. Back then I needed a kick in the rear to get my healthy eating back on track. I’m in need of the same rear-kicking right now, so I’m giving …

Over-Stuffed Kit Kat Cookies

September 2, 2014 duchessoffork 3

These cookies are insane. Ridiculous. They’re so addicting that I made them on two separate occasions this weekend. Chocolate chip cookies. Stuffed to the max with chunks of Kit Kat bars. You’re welcome. People constantly ask me for my cookie recipe because they t …

back to school

August 19, 2014 duchessoffork 6

I have happily been a stay-at-home-mom for more than three years. I haven’t worked in a classroom since the school year ended in 2011, just a couple months before Julia was born. I have greatly enjoyed being home with my kids all of this time. We’ve created quite …

Oatmeal Pecan Scotcheroos

August 15, 2014 duchessoffork 0

When I met The Duke, I wasn’t really into sweets. Sure, I thought cookies, cakes, and candies tasted fine, but I never craved them. I’d bake for my college roommates without even sampling the cookie dough. What sane person does that? Passing up perfectly delicious …
