When I first met Paul, I ate an English muffin for breakfast nearly ever day – I topped it with crunchy peanut butter, a sliced banana and a drizzle of honey. Little did I know that my future husband had similar tastes. Nine out of 10 mornings of his started with a peanut butter and honey sandwich as he walked out the door, and added a banana when he remembered to buy those at the store. (Ahem. I do the grocery shopping now.)
The only thing missing from our match-made-in-heaven breakfast combination was the bacon! Now, I’m not one that insists on adding bacon to everything. My mom does but I’ve never been a HUGE fan of bacon (I know!). But for a breakfast sandwich, it’s a must. Whether your breakfast sandwich is savory or sweet, bacon is a must.

Apparently, it’s the week for sprinkles. I didn’t plan this out but we will run with it. Maybe my sprinkle kick has something to do with sunshine and 70 degrees. Who knows!
I promised cookies so here we are, finally Friday, delivering cookies. Confetti cookies, that is. Confetti cookies for two, to be exact!
I made a big, jumbo confetti cookie a week or two ago. Paul thought I was going to share but I had BIG plans to eat the whole thing by myself. You know, sometimes you just want a cookie after dinner. Not a whole batch of three-dozen cookies; not a big bowl of ice cream; not a pan of brownies. But just ONE cookie.
The solution: a small batch of confetti cookies. This recipe makes two (still nearly jumbo) cookies: one for you, one for your loved ones. Or you can go ahead eat both yourself. No one is watching!
And these fun pastel sprinkles? Just could.not.pass.them.up. How could you pass up fun spring colors like these? I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods today. Happy weekend to you, friends!

I think it’s about time for a monthly photo roundup! I hope your Easter was amazing and I hope April is off to a great start!
We spent a little time at the lake on Easter and this sunset blew me away!
March was pretty much full of good food. Fried rice, sprinkles, hearty meat sauce and good coffee.
