Sometimes you just need to make up a reason for some girlfriend time.  And sometimes you just need to make up a reason to bake more sweets than you could (or should) possibly eat in a week.  And sometimes – you need both.

Last Wednesday, Stace and I got together, and armed with lots of chocolate, some great cookin music, and fun drinks, we baked the night away.  The end result? chocolate-peanut butter covered pretzels with sprinkles, puff pastries with Hershey kiss filling, and chocolate-espresso biscotti (see, I told you we were armed with chocolate).  I’m so blessed to have Stacy close by (at least for a little while I hope) for these impromptu rendezvous – we try to squeeze them in as often as we can.
