Veggies & Nuts Lettuce Wrap w/ Special 5-Ingredient Sauce - Bountiful, crunchy veggies and nuts along with a special, creamy sauce wrapped inside lettuce.

I wanted to have a moment, well more like 6 weeks, of quietness and exploration before I go back to school and start studying. Because studying is boring and stressful right?

Who doesn’t love easy to make and no-bake cookies? I do and you will too!

They’re full of yummy crunchiness from the oats, sweet from the chocolate, and has a punch of salt from the butter. The taste is quite unique because of the butter since it’s not necessarily the type of salt taste you’d imagine. (But in a good way.)

Mochi has been one of my all time favorite snacks since childhood. I remember going to the supermarket and buying the individually wrapped colorful mochi filled with different flavors including the popular sweet red bean. As soon as after my parents bought it, I would quickly devour it before I even got home. If you have ever tried mochi, what’s you favorite memory of mochi?
