Usually after dinnertime, I’ll often feel this jolt of excitement and the next thing I know, I’ll be craving my next, best treat. I’m not kidding. I am a walking sweet tooth and my constant dessert cravings can get a little out of hand.
Something’s changed, though. For the past several days I’ve been carrying on without this jolt and have been getting through a number of evenings without eating any dessert. There are many possibilities as to why and I’ve narrowed them down to two: a) My 7-year-old sweet tooth has finally caught up with my actual age or, b) I’m getting tired of my usual “go-to” treats.
Must be option b.
I have, however, had the urge to bake. While I lacked inspiration for my own cravings, I knew that I had all of the ingredients for one of my husband’s personal favorites: chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.
I pulled this recipe from Averie Cooks and as always, my batches came out ooey, gooey, and perfect.
I always love baking for others, but help me find my sweet tooth again! What are some desserts you suggest that I try?
