Vanilla Bean Blondies

 Y’all.

I have been craving steak like crazy lately.

I definitely need to try a Tomahawk Steak.

Saw it on a re-run of O.C. Housewives and I was ready to go blow some expensive moo-lah on that juicy, perfectly crusted, tender steak-a-lake.

Because I am Catholic, and it is the Lenten season, I am trying not to indulge too much in the meat department. It has been a challenge, especially on Friday’s.

Of course, Friday would be the day I want a steak when all I can have is seafood.

Sooooooo, in the meantime, I’ll just focus on satisfying my sweet tooth.
