Easy Overnight Cold Brew Coffee

Easy Overnight Cold Brew Coffee

After 9 days [so far] on the road, I’ve realized that a cross-country trip can teach you a lot of things. Going to Florida for spring break? You learn how to get there as fast as possible and never want to leave. Going to New York City? You learn how to cling to the steering wheel for dear life through the Virginias. Going to Oklahoma?

Clark’s Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Clark's Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

If memory serves me, he actually made them while I was away one weekend and then baked them again when I came back. 

I do remember him telling me that he “made – literally – the best chocolate chip cookies ever.” And I definitely remember agreeing 100%, nodding my head and muttering “mmmmmmmmmm omg” with a mouthful of cookie. Hot, chewy, wholesome, and loaded with melty chips.

Tangy Vegan Cole Slaw – The Fitchen

As I’m writing this, it’s day one of our road trip, and we’re camped out near Cedar River in Iowa. Clark is reading a book and I’m well… doing this. I’ve already got more mosquito bites than I can handle and I’m hankering for a shower.

But for a rare moment, our iPhones are silent and it’s nice to feel so out here. Tonight’s background music is the occasional “moo” from a neighboring farm and the river bullfrogs trying to find a one-night-stand. Thankfully, I’m already shacked up with a hunk. *wink wink*
