Latest obsessions…

Do you find you go through periods where you obsess over certain things? It could be a food or item, but something you MUST have or do just about every day?

Well I do! Here are some of my latest obsessions:

Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips!


Hello heaven! Just a tablespoon is all I need to tame the chocolate beast I encounter every.single.night! I savor them! I take one at a time & let it melt slowly in my mouth. Best part – it’s just 2pp for 1 tablespoon! (approx 16 chips!)

Pinot Grigio


Yeah – newsflash – wine dropped a pointsplus from 4 to 3 for a 4oz glass. So yes, I measure out 4oz & sip this yummy goodness while enjoying the lights on my Christmas tree!

Spa Channel on XMSirius Radio


I need to chill…really, who doesn’t during this time of year? Add a terrible two toddler into the mix & well…you can see why I enjoy wine at night along with chocolate too! This channel is so…aahhhhh… I can usually turn this channel on & melt. I tend to imagine myself at the spa waiting for a massage with (insert hot guy’s name here) – while I’m sipping cucumber water by the fireplace…with a faint aroma of lavender in the air.

Peppermint Bark!

Tis the season! I realized this year I have NEVER had peppermint bark…ever! I picked up Ghirardelli’s Peppermint Bark bar one day & fell in love while kicking myself for not trying it sooner! During my love affair I came across this post in my inbox from Peanut Butter Fingers – I can’t believe how easy it is to make! Sooo, while making some for myself…I thought it might be a good idea to include some with the gifts for Natie’s teachers at “school”.

So let’s recap – Chocolate, Wine, Spa, More Chocolate – Hey!  There’s no denying I’m a woman!

What are your current obsessions?

    Those all sound so yummy! I haven’t had peppermint bark before either. I’m too scared to try it because then I’ll probably want it all the time. HA! I’m in love with the dark chocolate covered pomegranates I found recently in a trip to Sam’s Club. I thought it was odd there wasn’t a seed like you’d think for pomegranates and I then realized the pomegranate part is actually pom juice and a few other fruit juices I guess to sweet it up and then covered in chocolate. Just sugar sugar sugar but I take a scoop now and then. Yum.

    We love the Ghiardelli chips. My husband gets a little ramekin of them and snacks at night.

    I am obsessed with coconut flour lately. Or anything coconut, really LOL!
