We are in the midst of The Blizzard of ’16. For the last 2 days, my husband, daughters and I have sat by the fire, made comfort food, played in the snow, and enjoyed some bad, dated movies. I consider snow days special occasions and try to pack them with fun. Today, we are making AHP Easy Pecan Chocolate Lace Cookies. They are probably the easiest cookies you’ll ever make, which makes it a perfect activity for toddlers, and they get a treat in the end!
