Cookie Stacks

Well, we made it. We’re safetly in St. Pete and are about to embark on a wedding-filled weekend!

Smilin' in St. Pete

But first, let’s back up to last night, which was full of deliciousness!

When we first arrived home, we hung out a bit waiting for my dad to get off work. My sister and I even had enough time to run out to T.J. Maxx where she succumbed to the trend and bought her first  running skirt (so cute!) and I found a nice pair of light blue Nike running shorts for $13. Score!

Once we arrived back home, it was dinn-ah time.

The Spread

For dinner we enjoyed lasagna, scallops with almonds and grapes, baked fish and veggies in a light butter sauce.

My Plate

I went back for seconds of everything but the scallops (but only because they were gone!).

As always, my favorite part of the meal was dessert.

My mom made one of my all-time favorite desserts and everyone overindulged as if we’d never have dessert again!

Chocolate Wafer Cookie Stacks

She made a ton of cookie stacks using Famous Chocolate Wafer Cookies and homemade whipped cream.

I had four stacks. Yes, I am a champ!

The First of Four

This dessert is always such a hit!

    9. […] I wanted my blog name to convey a love of food without seeming too overly healthy because, let’s face it, I’m not about to live my life without indulging in mini Oreo cheesecakes, red velvet cake brownies or whipped cream and chocolate wafer cookie stacks. […]
