Making It With Mom | Chocolate Comforts

Fall draws me to comfort food. I think mostly to baking because I LOVE to bake. I really enjoy making cookies, but chocolate is and always will be the love of my life. While I’m taking part in blogging adventures this is allowing me to dig back into my creative side. I’ve been longing for those calm, cozy autumn days where the rain dabbles on your windows, as you are wrapped in a throw blanket, and you don’t feel guilty one bit taking last bite of a warm gooey brownie. I’m sharing some of my favorite chocolate pictures and adding in this breakfast cookie recipes.

Best,

Kacie

Hey Peeps! I'm Kacie, a 30 something year old dreamer with a love of all things. I'm a shy and very quiet girl from Louisiana. I grew up on a farm in the middle of watermelon fields and dirt roads. However, it was in the middle of those roads where my journey began as a child. I would like to think that I can always return to where I’m from when life is overwhelming. I enjoy baking, gardening, eating, photography, & all things country-related. I’m also a cradle Catholic who enjoys learning more about Catholicism. God has put my Faith to the test on several different occasions throughout my life. I’m a caregiver to my mother and this is where starting a blog began.
