Pumpkin Cinnamon Sugar Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

It’s the 2nd of October and pumpkin everything has been in full swing around here (except PSLs, because I hate coffee….GASP! I save my caffeine for Dr. Peppers and preworkouts only, ha!). I decorated for Halloween/Fall last week and am fully ready for the cooler temps! I’m traveling a lot in October so I am trying to squeeze in as much baking as possible. And coincidentally, all my pants are starting to fit a bit tighter (oops!). I blame it…

Funfetti Pancakes

I joke that I should just start a funfetti only blog because as of late, that’s all I seem to post about! Well, if you don’t know already, funfetti is my favorite! And because it was Nick’s birthday on Sunday, I decided to make these for me…oh, wait, I mean him :). I’ve made these a few times before and every time I eat them you can normally hear me saying, “oh my gosh…oh my gosh….these are sooooo good”….they are better than…

Fall To Do List

Temps are dropping, the grocery store has white pumpkins, and I watched You’ve Got Mail last weekend….yep, it’s FALL! I’m so ready for comfort food, Fall TV shows, pumpkin activities, fire pits, and red wine.  I make a to do list before the major seasons so I make sure I fit everything in–Summer, Fall, & Christmas (yes, Christmas is a season for me :)). Here’s what’s on the docket for this Fall (in no particular order): Make apple crisp –…

Rosé Cocktail & Frosé Recipe

Hi! I had all intentions of getting this post up before Labor Day but I had the most unproductive week leading up because of my new nephew’s birth (so worth it!) so here we go…posting summer cocktail recipes in September (which seems so against everything I believe). I’m all for seasonally appropriate drinks (which is why I’ve started drinking so much more red wine lately) but these two recipes are so good that I’ll make all throughout the year! This…

End of Summer Birthday Dinner Menu

We celebrated my mom’s birthday on Saturday and we had so much fun! We ate (a lot), looked at old pictures and videos, went for a walk, and played cards. It was such a nice day! She always requests the same meal every year which is basically what she orders at the Bristol (her favorite restaurant). We added mac and cheese to the menu because I’m a child (as Nick would say) and won’t eat salmon–sorry! I was also so…

Cake Batter Rice Krispies

So, funfetti is my thing. Not like one of those things that I started to like a few years ago when it got super popular. Like a love that started years ago when I asked (at like age 8) if I could have funfetti cake at my wedding. And for your information, I had the most amazing pink confetti cake at our wedding a few years ago. I got our cake lady to make us another one for our 1…

Beach Pic Gallery Wall

I have been obsessed with Gray Malin aerial beach shots for a few years now but once I realized my vision for this wall, I realized that  buying multiple of his prints was just going to be too expensive (especially considering I have a thousand other decor items I want to purchase for our house!!!). I decided to do some scouring on Etsy and I ended up finding some beach shots I really liked that had a similar feel. I first wanted…

Spicy Shrimp & Orzo

Happy Friday! I’ve had the cooking  (and baking) bug lately and boy, have I been spending a lot of time in the kitchen! I feel like every recipe I have made recently has had the following: garlic, tomatoes, and basil. I tend to burn myself out on foods by eating them all the time and then can’t even look at them for awhile. Summer is coming to an end soon (or else I’m anticipating that!) so hopefully that will come…

Whipped Goat Cheese

I feel like I was late to the game with my goat cheese love. I know this is shocking, but I was first introduced to a legit cheese board post college. I guess in college, no one was inviting me over for a fancy cheese plate and a game of beer pong–although that sounds like an ideal night (but champagne pong for me!)!  Anyway, I remember a few years ago, my roomie at the time (and BFF) told me she…

March – July Reads (+podcasts)

(my favorite spot to read in the house right now–and apparently B’s fave, too) My reading started off with a bang in January and February (well, sort of) and then totally tapered off after that. I blame the bachelorette, housewives, and southern charm for stealing my brain cells and time (#worthit though). Thankfully, I had a few trips here and there and was actually able to finish a few books. I have been, however, super into podcasts recently. Just ask…
