We made it to Friday only because I’ve been drinking A LOT of this lately. 😉
Banana Republic earrings are a favorite and something I went shopping for this week.
Two.On Monday it was extremely cold all day so we had my Easy Tomato Soup for dinner. Except this time, I made some homemade croutons to pair with it. I debated about sharing this because it’s nothing fancy or mind-blowing. But I will tell you, it added just the perfect amount of crunch and topping to an already tasty soup.
EVOO (enough to coat the bottom of a pan)
What to do:
In a large pan, lightly coat the bottom with EVOO on medium to medium-low heat. Cut the baguette into one inch pieces. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. Remove from heat and place desired amount on top of soup! 🙂
Three.On Wednesday, I mentioned how one of my New Years Goals is for some, “me” time and I want books as a part of that time. I need some recommendations though! I’ve talked about some of my favorite books here and here. I also mentioned a modge-podge here. Leave a comment and fill me in on your favorites! 🙂
Did someone say three day weekend? Thank you, Martin Luther King Jr. 🙂

Happy Friday everyone! I hope your weekend is relaxing and cozy!
The holidays encompass so many things in my mind. I cherish the extra time with family that falls through the cracks throughout the year. I love seeing friends from near and far, coming together under one roof for one party or another. I crave the food that is hearty and rich and should only be enjoyed among the ones you love. It’s the epitome of holidays to me.
To kick off the season in eatable fashion, a cheese board is the staple of it all. The conversation starter. A piece of art. A mix of flavors that pairs the best with wine. From Thanksgiving to Christmas my heart bursts at the seams with all that’s in store. Cheese boards are the beginning of memories to be made. Here’s to the combinations on one small board that will have your heart singing from Thanksgiving to Christmas and beyond!
No matter the time of year, it’s become one of our favorite sweet tooth cravings in our household. Which one you ask? The frozen yogurt or the dark chocolate peanut butter cups? Actually, both! The best idea was to put the two together to create a bowl of goodness.
Our ice cream maker was an unexpected gift for our wedding and boy did we welcome it with open arms! It is easy to use and clean up!
Even if it is chilly outside, your family will love this and keep coming back from more. Plus, you don’t need to tell them it’s made with yogurt and candy without junk and less sugar than normal. 😉 Secrets safe! xo
1.5 cups whole milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 cups Stonyfield Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup heavy cream
6 UnReal dark chocolate peanut butter cups (cut into bite-sized pieces)
What to do:
Combine all ingredients, except peanut butter cups, into a stand or hand-held mixer. Mix until sugar is dissolved. Pout into ice cream maker and churn for about 20 minutes. Churn another five minutes. Then, slowly add the bite-sized peanut butter cups. Pour ice cream into a freezer safe container with a lid. Place in the freezer for at least two hours. Scoop and enjoy!

When I was younger, I never understood my Mom’s craving of chocolate. I liked it and all but craaaaaving it? Yeah, that didn’t exactly happen to me. Over the past several years, I have slowly come to understand this thing people talk about and my Mom’s sweet tooth cravings. It’s ironic that this sweet tooth decided to grace me with it’s presence at a time in life where I really wanted to start creating a healthier lifestyle for myself. I switched to eating real food that was good for me and actually adding to my life rather than hindering it. What’s a girl to do? Life’s all about balance but there are still some foods that just shouldn’t be ingested for the amount of harm it may cause.
