Yesterday morning I got a tweet from one of my favorite bloggers:

I’ve been a faithful reader of Keep It Sweet for a while now (you may remember the guest post I did last summer) and Lauren has become one of my go-to gurus whenever I have a baking question. Recently, she started her own online dessert company and offered to send samples. I’ve been waiting in anticipation since she shipped them off on Monday!

The mailman usually arrives with packages before noon, but yesterday he was sick and his replacement didn’t come knocking til 4pm (rather, I stalked the truck and ran out to meet her once she pulled up). Luckily that was one massive melon to tide me over.

Three pretty bundles! Lauren knows I love Peanut Butter, so there was a definite theme here:

I dug in immediately.

There were also Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies that I intended to save and try later…

…but once I ate these two…

…I had to see what other magic Lauren was capable of.

No, I didn’t eat ALL four. But I wanted to!

Now Lauren is my buddy, but I’m really not being biased here. This cookie (below) is one of the best desserts I’ve ever eaten. I CURSED OUT LOUD after one bite.

How amazing to finally experience what I’ve been drooling over virtually – if you’re in the Tri-State area, Keep it Sweet also offers catering and dessert parties. And of course, you can order any goodies online (they also make brownies/bars and seasonal treats). They would make a perfect gift for a special occasion – check out the Cookie of the Month Club…and enter “ACTORSDIET” for 10% off!

I was in sugar bliss well into the evening, and ended the day with a large pre-bedtime Gala…
