I am so, so, so ready for summer.

We’ve reached the point of the school year where we have standardized tests and giant projects due and award ceremonies every other day.

Which means summer is right around the corner.

We’re even pretty much done with soccer and the other parents are all, “You wanna get together and practice this summer?”

NOPE.

Anyway. I made cookies!

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies – soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! 

M&Ms Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies - soft and delicious cookies with chocolate chips and M&Ms! I make these over and over!

I’m just not a cookie person.

I would choose cake, a slice of pie, a handful of gummy bears, pretty much any other sweet over a cookie.

The exception to that rule is the one or 2 times a year when the only thing I can think about is grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies.

You know the ones, right?

They’re super soft and somehow every grocery store in the country makes them exactly the same way?

Yeah, those.

When I get a random craving for one of them, nothing fixes it but getting those cookies.

I can remember leaving my house in a snowstorm in Colorado because I needed these cookies to survive the day.

Fritos and grocery store bakery M&Ms cookies are the only things that I was ever willing to leave my house for during a snowstorm.

Y’all remember those days? When I was too scared to drive in the snow so we would walk to school every day? Granted, it was a short walk but still. I was terrified to drive in the snow for the first several years we were there.

Anyway.

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies - the softest cookies ever! Classic chocolate chip cookies made with pudding mix to keep them chewy and soft.

Before we get to these cookies, can we talk Real Housewives? Y’all know I have always been a Real Housewives fan. Since the first season of Orange County which was, what? 8 years ago? Yeah, I’m a big fan.

But I am so disappointed with every city these days. It seems like the longer someone is on a show, the more crap they have to promote. I swear New Jersey is 100% promotions these days. Bakeries, books, music, strange bottles of black water…? I mean, we haven’t seen a good ham game played in years. And no one’s been called a “prostitution whoraaa” in a way too long. I just want to go back to the good ol’ days  – is that too much to ask?
