Bourbon Pecan Dark Chocolate Chips Cookies

Chocolate, Cookies

Saturday is a big day for the United States. There is Cinco de Mayo AND The Kentucky Derby. WHAT DO THE AMERICANS DO?!?

I usually don’t celebrate The Kentucky Derby but this year I’m actually going to my friend Whitney’s Derby Party! I can’t wait because I’m excited about drinking a mint julep, fried chicken and a few of these cookies (again).

I’m not really a big gambler because I’d much rather spend gambling money on guaranteed shoes and purses. BUT I’ll be sure to do some research by Saturday. I usually pick the horse with the saddest most emotional story. I want a tear-jerker of a story.

If you follow me on The Ol’ Instagram, you know that I just spent the last 4 days in Mexico City and it was so glorious.

Mini Chocolate Sheet Cake for Two with Raspberry Frosting

Cakes, Chocolate, Holiday

I’m currently in a small mountain town in Colombia called Jardin. I’m sitting on a balcony at the hotel while it pours that damp, humid rain that is so lovely. It’s so beautiful, quaint and lush. I arrived Saturday night, after a very full day of travel. And yesterday morning I took a helicopter ride, which I was actually terrified of, to Jardín. The helicopter ride ended up being so smooth and chill, I realized about two minutes in, I had zero to worry about. ALSO, I cracked open the new book club book which I’m announcing tomorrow! YASSS.

I can’t wait to tell you more about my trip and the book BUT today we’re still in the depths of Valentine’s Day content. V-Day is Wednesday!
