Eric and I went on a walk the other night.
While on the walk, I had an intense craving for chocolate chip cookies.
That's what exercising does to me.
I remember working out in college with friends and then getting Chinese takeout afterwards. Let's just say I am not cut out to be what we call "fit".
Anywho, we got on Pioneer Woman's amazing website and found a recipe for the cookies.
We had everything in the pantry so we went to
work to satisfy my craving.
