So much carb dunking around these parts.

Although I’ve been on a soup kick for over a month, this is the first truly chilly week where soup feels necessary, and I’m digging it.

Happy Tuesday, folks! Tuesdays tend to be my “whomp whomp” day of the week, but it’s okay because THERE’S CAKE. FOR BREAKFAST. If we’re being 100% honest, which I almost always am (it’s an affliction), I made this cake last weekend, so breakfast today was actually just peanut butter toast, which is great in its…
