34 Things to Bake This Week

Before we start making resolutions  about getting healthy for 2014, let’s just take a breath and bake something (just for your sanity, or one last hoorah)! My mom bought a bulk pack of chocolate truffles from Costco, and let’s just say if I wasn’t addicted to chocolate before… I think I have a full fledged chocolate addiction now. But, the healthy recipes can wait just a few more days!
