Hello to the awesome boots that I have my eye on….now to find a reason to get them! How perfect would they be in the rain/snow/sleet?! Or who am I kidding, anytime? I have an obsession with boots.

What are you saying hello to this week?

Recipe Roundup

I love cookbooks. I have a ton of them…some are very well loved and some have lots of pages marked but rarely get used. Why you ask? The internet. It is SO easy for me to search for a recipe and pull it up on my computer or iPad and just bring said device into the kitchen. I know I’m not the only one who is guilty of this. I try to use my cookbooks, I can’t stop wanting to buy cookbooks but I always seem to turn to my computer. How can you not though when there are so many awesome recipes out there? I read a bazillion blogs and have come to rely on some of them for my go to recipes. Do you have anywhere you rely on for tried and true recipes? Pinterest has also become a favorite tool. I can find delicious recipes all over the internet and then pin them onto specific boards and easily find them when I’m ready to make them.

Here are a few recipes I’ve rounded up that I’m hoping to make!

How delicious does this simple popcorn snack look? I love that she uses an air popper, if only I had room to store one…

 

These are just calling my name. Probably should try them out one weekend soon and serve them for football fun…I’m guessing they’d pair really well with an icy cold beer.

 

 

 

I know this HAS to be delicious. It comes from Bree over at Baked Bree and she is one of my go to blogs for recipes. Everything I’ve made from her recipes has been delicious.

 

 

I need to make these. Probably sooner rather than later. I’ve been eying them for YEARS. How delicious do these look?!

 

 

These seem like the perfect weeknight fall dinner. Paired with roasted veggies and brussel sprouts. Yup I said brussel sprouts–they’re delicious and probably deserve their own roundup!

 

 

And finally…I’ll be making this tonight! It’s cold and gloomy here today and it seems like the perfect meal to combat that. Yum. Pairing it with a crisp loaf of french bread and a nice green salad.

Hello Monday!

Hello October!

Hello baking queen! I baked pumpkin bread, vegan banana/apple bread, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and raspberry pear crisp this weekend. Come help us eat it all…and tell me what I should bake next! I think bread is calling my name. Specifically THIS bread! Gives me hope since she’s a Colorado blogger too and I know it can be done at altitude 🙂

Hello to Monday night football…Go BEARS!

Hello to a week full of fun stuff (sukkah dining, football watching, wine drinking, breast cancer 5k walking, baby shower celebrating!)

Hello to a photo of me that the husband took this weekend on our beautiful drive in the mountains! I’m ready to go back…now!

Linking up with Lisa again! Have a great week 🙂

Hi Monday!

I am NOT happy to see you today 🙂 I was enjoying my weekend thank you very much. Football, friends, beer, Bears win, Broncos win, a little outlet shopping, breakfast (and bacon) with friends, a delicious peach cobbler and more time with friends. Yep I’m ready to do it all over again, like now.

I am SO happy that fall is around the corner but I am SO over the 90˚ weather. As in way, way, way over it. Bring on boots! beanies! hoodies! Did I mention boots? These babies are calling my name. They’re treated and ready to be worn!

Speaking of fall, can we talk pumpkin for a minute? I LOVE it. And am so ready to be wrapped in pumpkin for a few weeks. Starting it off right with Pumpkin Lattes from Starbucks of course. But there is so much more! Pumpkin Beer (Delicious!) Pumpkin Pancakes (Yet to try them but my good friend A mentioned that they’re in my future. Yum) Pumpkin Bread! Pumpkin cookies! I can’t wait to get baking and back to trying more pumpkin beers this weekend.

who wouldn’t want to drink this beer?

 

Also, let’s just talk football for a minute here ok? Bears–WIN! Broncos–WIN! Yep, one happy girl here with a great start to football season. (Aside from the winning, the snacks and company during last nights game were wonderful!)

Happy Monday people!
