Not to say I never grab a bag of Cheddar Goldfish in a hurry because it happens but a fruit and cheese plate on a daily basis can get boring fast. And we all know boring food to a toddler is going to

Have you ever been attacked by a chocolate craving? I mean a full on “must have chocolate or I’m going to run through the streets like a mad zombie person” kind of craving?

I figured after a day like that I need, no I deserve a thick fudgey chocolate brownie. As I gathered my ingredients it was to my horror to find there wasn’t a single egg in the house or
