Eat It, Thanos. I Made Infinity Stone Cookies!

Infinity Stone Cookies

How do you follow up the baking of an Infinity Gauntlet cake? With super colorful sugary Infinity Stone Cookies, that’s how! Thanks to my Level 9 Clearance at S.H.I.E.L.D., I was sent an early Blu-ray edition of Avengers: Infinity War. (Yes, this movie’s just as good the third, fourth and fifth viewing!)

Toss Those Frozen Meals and Slow Cook Your Way to Deliciousness Instead


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. This week’s a rough one. Allie’s got two midterms and I’m playing catch-up at work from being out of town all last week. So dinner? Well, yeah, dinner’s barely an afterthought. Normally, it’d mean popping open the freezer and grabbing some sodium-packed frozen meal to toss in the microwave. But I’m a new man …
