Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Stuffed Cookies with Sea Salt

The hardest part about food blogging is writing about food that’s long gone, dredging up feelings and flavors past and knowing that you’ve long since eaten the last one. Recalling the flavors and textures of a recent recipe, trying to transpose those sensory details into words, well, that’s a surefire way to get your mouth...
