Can you believe it?!... No seriously?!... I mean… when I figured it out, I was like … SHUT THE FRONT DOOR.... a YEAR!? YUP, Not Just A Chick is a year old this week! How time flies! It all started with A walk in the park , and a “hmmmm” wonder if yours truly can actually, successfully, pull off a blog people will read.

THANK YOU to everyone who follows this little adventure of mine. Thank you to my honey and close friends that put up with all the pictures, the ideas, and the trial runs!

They have just the right amount of that famous “pumpkin spice”…. And they are EASY PEASY. Like so easy you should be making two batches. One to bake up now, the other to freeze and have on hand for when the craving hits!
