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.
That’s the horse I usually root for and it’s usually the one that loses—so who knows!
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. I ate a whole lot of tacos, I went to Pujol (magical), visited the Luis Barragan house and saw the place where Frida Kahlo created. Goals have been completed. I can’t wait to go back! Have you been?!
I think this recipe completes my Easter content for this year. I think I’m done. Before I settled on these chocolate cookies, these were initially peanut butter cookies. I set out to bake a chewy, soft peanut butter cookie with Cadbury mini eggs. Umm…I realized that all the recipes online that says they’re soft…ummm…they’re all full of lies!
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!
