So many adventures. So few times.

My life is pretty dull. I play with a toddler, watch a lot of Yo Gabba Gabba and experiment with the crock pot. I have no bed time and I find humor in Laffy Taffy jokes. Conan O'Brien is my anti-drug.

A Post-Workout chocolate love story

I received a shipment from Mrs. Cavanaughs to test out their various chocolate delicacies (The struggle is real, folks). Of course, this came shortly after I got done working out.

These bars? Amazeballs. My personal favorite was the Roasted Almond truffle chocolate bar. Seriously. 

There's a HUGE variety of chocolates, many of which were in the box I received. My heart exploded with lust when I started shoveling chocolate into my pie hole. Life is good, ya know?

My honest, favorite part of these chocolates were that the chocolate itself wasn't waxy or chalky - it was sweet and creamy and the dark chocolate had a tart undertone and these were legitimately GOOD. I can't say the same thing for many of the mass-produced, boxed chocolates you can find at Target and Walmart.

Look at that nutty, chocolatey goodness!

And then the threenager sniffed out that I was eating candy without sharing.

There, was a pink one, soooo...

Her face says it all.

Enjoy, you lovely folks! I received these products free to test, but the opinions are all my own!

Another not-so-shameless promotion for my friends.


Time was when Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.

"It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe," Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. "I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'"

Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.

...In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch. 

"It was a difficult decision, especially for George," Mrs. Cavanaugh said. "He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy - and could compete with - those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates."

Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh's candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence....
