Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars

My almost two year old daughter Phoebe is quite a handful.  She’s really giving me a run for my money in a way that her two older siblings did not.  She has a very mischievous, get-into-absolutely-everything, help-myself-to-anything-in-the-pantry, try-to-run-into-traffic, jump-off-all-the-high-things, streak that I am quite certain comes from my Dad’s side of the family and that… Continue reading Toffee Chocolate Chip Bars
