Waffle Cone Crunch Milk Chocolate  In Mama Maggie's Kitchen

It’s been awful the last week in normally cool and classy San Diego. The heat has been unbelievably terrible. My poor Little Red has been stuck inside the house instead of climbing trees. I wanted to do something special to cheer him up. So, I took him across the bridge...
