Georgetown Cupcake - Toasted Marshmallow Cupcake

This pretty little cupcake is Georgetown Cupcake's Toasted Marshmallow flavor, and it's a delicious treat if you're a fan of s'mores! 

It's a "Valrhona chocolate cupcake topped with a toasted marshmallow frosting", and I love the torched look of the marshmallow frosting on top.  It was just gooey enough without being too messy to eat, haha.  I hope they bring this flavor back again soon!

CVS ExtraBucks Deals

CVS has some great ExtraBucks deals this week until Wednesday, 11/26 - I would highly recommend heading over before then to grab these deals!

Here are the items that I picked up today:

- Kraft macaroni and cheese: $0.99, get $0.99 ExtraBucks back.
- Reese's FastBreak bar: $0.79, get $0.79 ExtraBucks back.
- Sour Patch gum: $1.57, get $1.57 ExtraBucks back.
- 5 gum: $1.00, get $1.00 ExtraBucks back.
- M&Ms snack pouch: $0.79, get $0.79 ExtraBucks back.
- Swedish Fish theatre box: $1.67, get $1.67 ExtraBucks back.
- Starbucks DoubleShot drink: $1.50, get $1.50 ExtraBucks back.
- Advil 4-count: $0.99, get $0.99 ExtraBucks back.

Since you get the same amount of ExtraBucks as the price you pay, you essentially get that money back to spend on a later purchase.  Make sure you have a CVS ExtraCare card to get these deals this week!

Eggless Nutella Cookies

I don't normally bake with dietary restrictions in mind, but I thought it would be interesting to try out Kirbie's Cravings eggless Nutella cookies mainly because it uses Greek yogurt as one of the ingredients.  I enjoy eating Greek yogurt for breakfast, but I've never tried baking with it before.

The best part about these cookies have to be the large chocolate chunks I put in, hahaha.  But aside from that, these cookies turned out pretty tasty! I was a little worried that they would be so soft that I wouldn't be able to get them off the cookie sheet, but it wasn't an issue.  The cookies are soft, but not so much that they crumble in your hands or anything - it was easy to transport them to work the following morning.  If you're looking for an egg-less cookie recipe, or just want to try something out with Greek yogurt like me, give this recipe a try!
