I did something that I haven’t done since the 3rd grade. I got bangs! I’m talking straight across, fringe bangs and I couldn’t love them any more. Picture to come soon on my style blog (unless you’re following me on Instagram… then you’ve already seen it! username: kimberlywyn).

Nothing new here.. besides that I have two weeks off from work and I’m getting a sore throat. Just my luck! I’ve been baking away in the kitchen with all my time off, so get ready for some drool worthy posts.

I made these bars from the gigantic Nutella jars I got from Costco. Those two jars lasted me (and only me!) approximately three months… which I’m sure is much shorter than the average four person family. The cream cheese flavor was a little weak, so I’d up the intensity next time I make them. I’m a huge cream cheese in desserts kinda gal. Recipe from Cookin Canuck.

    I made these a few days ago, and my family and I loved them! They were soft and not super sweet and tasted amazing. I even gave some to my mom to take to her workplace and her co-workers and boss loved them too! Thanks for the recipe, I will definitely be making these again. <3
