Guess What Y’all?!?!

I forgot to tell you that your boy Frank Ocean finally came out with an album (are they still called that?), but yes Frank Ocean released the Blonde album a few weeks ago. I know that you read that last sentence and thought okay…but read it again in your screaming fangirl voice and that would accurately capture the way that I feel.

At first, it began as a visual album, to which I strategically blocked out a pocket of time (it was that serious) to sit down and watch it and I will tell you that I was a little bit disappointed. The music was deep…perhaps a little too deep for me. I turned it off and wasn’t exactly sure about the journey that Frank was trying to take me on, so when I heard that the Blonde album was released and available for download, I took my time to get around to listening to it until this past week.

At first, listen I was not impressed. I wasn’t really feeling it. I decided not to let that stop me because I felt the same way about Rihanna’s Anti album and now that is one of my favorites and is on heavy rotation. Knowing this I gave it another listen and I LOVE IT!! I truly cannot stop listening to it. It is so good in fact that I think we should all just have some cookies…some pumpkin spice tahini cookies that is!

    I always have tahini in my kitchen so I can’t wait to give these a try since they are gluten-free ☺

      Perfect! These are really good and you can pretty much use anything instead of chocolate chips.
