Peanut Butter & Chocolate Rolo Cookies

Is that a long enough name for a cookie?

Has it been a long enough time since I wrote a blog post?  Or should I stay away for another, oh, I dunno FOUR MONTHS.

I would like to take this opportunity to make a post-dated announcement: Fleur-de-Licious went on a brief hiatus, due to…intern year.  It’s the real deal.  These 80+ hour work weeks are no joke.  But if my New Years Resolution is going to involve cookies and stuff (like, making and eating more obvi), then I see this as a perfect time to make another announcement: FLEUR-DE-LICIOUS IS BACK Y’ALL.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Peanut Butter Cups

So, I did this thing a few weeks ago.

It was kinda wild and crazy and scary and exciting all at the same time.

I started a real job. Like one that could lead to a full-time job once I graduate from school (and pass the bar). Be impressed. It’s a Big Girl Job where I have to wear a Big Girl Suit and Big Girl Heels and do Big Girl Legal Work for Real Clients. I work downtown… in a skyscraper. I have a commute. It’s, like, the real deal.

Here’s the thing I’ve learned in two short weeks of my Big Girl Job: Being a grown up is HARD.

Blondie-Brownie Reese’s Cup Sandwiches

Oh friends.  Friends, friends, friends.

You thought you were just coming here from some good, clean, baking fun.

Little did you know that I (Hannah) made a peanut butter cup sandwich.

Except instead of bread, I used peanut butter blondie and brownie. (more…)

Vanilla Marshmallows

Hey, look! We’re fulfilling our promise to make up our extended absence to you! Three posts in four days. Whatup.

So, I’m gonna give you a rundown of what I’ve been up to that made me so busy I couldn’t blog. Or go to yoga. Or dress myself in anything not made of spandex. Or feed myself properly. Or sleep the right amount. Or be a functional human in any sense of the word.

Sounds fun, right?! Ready. Go!

Butterfinger & Snickers Rice Krispie Treats

I want to make sure that I’m not the only person this happens to:

I’m packing up all my stuff to move back to Dallas.  When I first started packing, everything went in these nicely labeled boxes.  Like one box had all pants and fall-weather shirts.  One box had all cookbooks (that was a mistake, it’s a crazy heavy box).  One box had all bathroom-y things in it.

I may or may not also have a box that is almost entirely full of cardigans.  Uhh… (more…)

PB&J Chocolate Hearts

Loves.  There are 40 minutes left in Valentine’s Day here in Texas.  (Lucky ducks on the west coast have 2 hours and 40 minutes left!!!!)  I have an extremely, life-threateningly important question for you, and I have 40 minutes left to ask it.  Are you ready?  You may want to sit down for this one.

Will you be my Valentine? (more…)
