I tend to entertain a lot during the fall and winter months. Between October and February tons of holidays and events can creep up and can become a little overwhelming when you’re responsible for feeding a crowd. Today, I’m sharing how to set up a DIY chili bar, which is one of my favorite easy entertaining ideas to use all season long. (Super Bowl anyone?!) They don’t require a lot of effort on your part and can be made to appeal to a variety of diets and tastes. I’m also sharing a delicious recipe for my favorite turkey chili too!
Pumpkin seems to become a trending topic during the fall and winter months, but after you make these easy pumpkin biscuits (with maple butter no less!) you might start incorporating pumpkin year round. They come together in no time and have the perfect hint of pumpkin in each and every bite. And can we talk about that maple butter…? The sweetness takes these pumpkin biscuits to another level and I won’t fault you for trying to find other things to spread it on. It’s that good. [Read more…]
I don’t think there’s ever a bad time of year for ice cream. Sure, the weather cools down and you may not want to be eating a cone outside, but the right scoop of ice cream paired with some warm apple pie or on top of a warm brownie can really hit the spot during the winter months! This chai tea ice cream recipe is easy to make and is the perfect fall treat with all of those spicy chai flavors. (I especially love crumbling up some biscoff cookies to add on top too!) Switch up your normal cup of chai tea and try it in a bowl this year!
Some of you may have snow already (Utah, I’m talking to you…), but here in North Carolina it’s finally starting to feel like fall. The leaves on the trees are changing colors and I’ve been loving the sound of the leaves crunching under my feet when I take Sophie for a walk. The mornings are crisp and cool and I feel like it makes me appreciate my morning coffee just a little bit more. If you’re craving a little bit more “fall” in your life, and you haven’t already jumped full swing onto the Christmas music bandwagon, I’m sharing the perfect cozy fall playlist today that will want to make you curl up in a blanket, sip something warm, and relax. (Watching the snow or the rain fall while listening is an added bonus).
Fall is officially here, but it’s no excuse not to enjoy the cooler (and more enjoyable!) outdoor nights on the patio with friends and family! The perfect way to do that, imo, is by hosting an outdoor grilled pizza night! If you’ve never grilled pizza on the barbecue before, your life is about to be changed forever! I’ll never go back now that I now how easy it is to make and how delicious it is. (THE CRUST YOU GUYS…OMG…TO DIE FOR). I’m sharing a few tips to make your own grilled bbq pizzas, plus some delish and easy pizza recipes, the perfect cocktail to make for a crowd, and a fun way to make dessert on the grill too!

Although I’m a little sad that summer is coming to an end, one thing that I’m looking forward to is football season! There’s nothing like sitting down with friends to watch a game, eat your favorite snacks, and sip on a beverage or two. Since football season is right around the corner, I’m sharing some easy fall football party ideas to help you score a touchdown at your next event!
I’m officially kitchen-less and it feels so weird! I’m living in that limbo moment of time where I’m still in Salt Lake City, minus a house, and not quite to Charlotte, in a rental. All of my normal cake supplies and baking tools are packed in boxes, sitting in a storage unit, and I’m completely relying on my sister’s house for anything I might have forgotten that I needed during this month. So when it came time to make this peaches and cream cake, I knew I could count on my friend Natalie (and her kitchen tools!) to help me pull it all together. (She’s the person I started this girl’s night with too!) It was also a really good excuse to get together to make one more cake before I head east!
For once, I’m actually happy that September is here. It signifies that all of my house stuff is FINALLY done and I’m gladly marking off each and every passing day on the new printable September 2019 calendar until I make my move over to Charlotte! Less than a month left!
