Cashew Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_6279-1.JPG
Well hello! It’s been quite a while. I decided to take a break from social media to focus on work – days turned into weeks, then months.. then a year passed before I knew it.

I had NO time to be creative in the kitchen at ALL. Every week would be the regular food prep – but I have some big things planned for 2015, so stay tuned!

So now that I’m back on social media I am searching for inspiration to help me get creative again! If you have any suggestions of people I should follow please post them in the comments below!

I stumbled across The Little Honey Bee’s Website and decided to try these cookies! They are SO good. They are perfectly sweet, with a hint of orange flavor. This was my second time making them. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Thank you to The Little Honey Bee for this awesome recipe! Be sure to check out her amazing website!
