After a few weeks off to celebrate the holidays with friends and family and to hit the reset button on new content for the blog, I’m back and ready to tackle 2019! I’ll be touching a little more on some upcoming blog updates in a few days, but until then, I’m bringing back something that I’ve loved, (and you guys have too!) printable calendars! The printable January 2019 calendar is here and ready for a little fun! 😉
Today, I’m sharing the easiest white hot chocolate recipe that you can fix and forget in the crockpot and the CUTEST North Pole stir sticks that will get everyone into the holiday spirit! This North Pole hot chocolate is so easy to make and so much fun to drink! It’s the perfect whimsical treat to sip while sitting near the tree and reading Christmas stories with the kids, or while wrapping presents and listening to your favorite Christmas music! And don’t worry….there’s no age limit for this yummy drink! 😉
Entertaining season is in full swing and prepping meals for a house full of guests can be daunting, especially during the holiday season when all of us have a million things on our minds, and schedules. But today’s recipe will help make breakfast a breeze and will please even the pickiest of eaters. These easy fruit danishes come together in no time, bake up to a perfectly flakey golden brown, and are filled with yummy fruit filling! Plus, there’s no hard work on your end either and you don’t have to be a pastry master to pull them off. With a few grocery items, you’ll have breakfast in the bag!
I know that I’m a few years late to the whole podcast phenomenon, but I recently jumped on board and haven’t looked back. I don’t know what I was waiting for, or why I waited so long to download my first few episodes and just start listening, but whatever the reason is, I’m just glad that I actually started. There really is no bad time to jump in head first, and with all of the amazing content out there just waiting to be discovered, I think now is as good a time as any. I’m sharing my top 25 favorite podcasts today, and hope that, if you haven’t started to listen yet, I can convince you to jump on board, and if you have, that I help you discover a new favorite!

I’m over boring and bland friendsgiving and thanksgiving themed decor. Who said your tables can’t be colorful and bright?! Not me! And I’m proving that today with a fun and easy way to transform your friendsgiving event this year with a pop of color! This DIY ombre friendsgiving centerpiece can be made in a day and couldn’t be more simple to put together. Plus, I’m also sharing an easy and delicious drink recipe (that only has 3 ingredients!) that you can serve to your friends and family too! 😉

I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade meals. I can remember watching Sandra Lee on the Food Network when I was younger and I still love the idea of using some store bought items and some homemade ones, to get dinner on the table quickly. With the holiday season coming up and busy schedules on the rise, getting a meal on the table that doesn’t involve going through the drive thru first, is a challenge in and of itself. Plus, when the weather gets colder outside, I crave easy, warm dinners that don’t require a lot of effort on my part. Today, I’m sharing an easy meal idea, that’s perfect for the family and also includes a recipe for easy focaccia bread sticks too!
I almost didn’t post this cake. It has flaws and wasn’t up to par with my perfectionist self, then I thought…but it tastes good! It might not look pinterest perfect, but this chocolate stout beer cake with beer frosting still deserves it’s moment. And sometimes, it’s ok to post a project with flaws. I know when I see someone else do it, it makes me feel a little more adequate. I’m not a professional cake maker, and don’t claim to be. But I love making cakes (and eating them!), and this cake is just one more notch in my cake baking experience column.
These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert. Check out the recipe below!
I have an obsession with whoopie pies. Macarons were in the spotlight for awhile there, but I’m definitely team whoopie pie. Anyone else with me? They are simple to make and filled with cream or frosting. (What’s not to love about that?) Plus, you can transform them into a fun Halloween themed dessert in a pinch too! These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert…and you guys know I’m all about that!
They appeal to both kiddo’s and adults alike and, in my opinion, desserts are soooo much better when they are infested with worms! 😉
