“Cookie Dough” Bites

“Cookie Dough” Bites

Good Morning! πŸ™‚

Happy Monday morning to you all.

This has been a busy month so far, whew! It isn’t slowing down at all!

Patrick’s parents were just here for a visit for a few days, so we did a lot of sight seeing and trying to entertain them and keep them happy. I am glad that Patrick got to see his parents πŸ™‚

This week are our engagement photos!

So nervous.

I know that our photographer is going to be amazing and her pictures are outstanding I have just never had a photo shoot that was primarily based around me and one other person.

Certainly going to be interesting!

One good thing about that though is that I get to see one of my bridesmaids this weekend, yay! The pictures are in NYC and since Patrick and I are going Kait and Karen arranged to come at the same time.

It will be so good to see them.

And then the following weekend I get to see my maid of honor! Lucky girl I am!

I can’t complain because all of the things that are making me busy this month are exciting, but it feels like it has already flown by. Holy shmokes.

Anyways, I am sharing a recipe with you today that is completely odd, but awesomely delicious.

These cookie dough bites are made with Chickpeas.

Don’t run away! I swear, these are delicious. They are even Patrick and Daddy approved. They love them!

I promise they are so tasty and super delicious, plus they are better for you than most treats.

One of those experiments that turns out being well worth the risk.
