With the new year in full swing, I have made it a goal for this year to exercise consistently and eat a healthier more balanced diet. One way I am eating better is by drinking a healthier smoothie in the morning to replace eating breakfast. Lately, I have been making a Chocolate Peanut Butter smoothie whose main ingredients are protein powder, peanut butter, and a banana.
I have truly been enjoying everything fall from the beautiful colors to the great smells and tastes. So to help enjoy the fall flavors, I decided to make these pumpkin cinnamon rolls! I am so glad I did. These came out so freaking delicious! And I know it sounds weird, but I topped these off with an Orange icing! It may sound odd, but the orange glaze adds the best zing of flavor.

So I really didn't eat brussel sprouts growing up and was a bit hesitant to try them out as an adult, but after a co-worker suggested I try out this recipe, I have been absolutely loving them. Now, these are something I love to throw together all the time. Whether I make them as an afternoon snack, for a BBQ, or as a side for a large meal like Thanksgiving, these are always such a huge hit.

Okay so I really do not drink a whole lot. Don't get me wrong, I definitely love going out for beers or cocktails or a nice glass of wine, but I really don't do it that often. So it is pretty rare that I find a drink I am in love with! Well I recently saw an easy cocktail on Kristin Pressley's IG about this Blue Chair Bay Pineapple Rum Cream and La Croix. After trying it myself, I absolutely loved it.

I don't know about you but coffee always gives me the jitters and ends up making my stomach feel sour throughout the day. Unfortunately, I love the taste of coffee and there are days I definitely need the caffeine! So what's a girl to do? Well good news is that there is an alternative that tastes exactly like coffee without the crazy side-effects. Curious to know what it is? Well, I am talking about the Four Sigmatic Mushroom coffee!

For Christmas, I figured I'd try out this Mulled Wine drink and let me tell you, it is totally worth it! This is a new favorite of mine and may have to be a drink we make every Christmas. Full of fruit and spice flavors with the wine to help out your mood, can't see how anyone wouldn't enjoy this bad boy!

These are hands down my husband's absolute favorite cookies. I make them every year as soon as it starts getting cold all the way through New Years! Similar to a ginger snap, these homemade cookies are spicy, chewy, and amazing in every way. Best way to eat them is right out of the oven when they are still warm and gooey!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! I know this year is going to be different for a lot of us due to the Covid pandemic. Whether you plan on staying home or traveling this year, things will just not be the same. One way we plan on at least making it feel the same is by preparing a turkey, eating some pumpkin pie, and enjoying an icy Thanksgiving inspired "Quarantini"!

Thanksgiving dessert consists of the usual pumpkin, pecan, or sweet potato pie! Why not try something different this year? Try these Pumpkin Drop cookies which still have that awesome pumpkin spice flavor, just without the pie crust. These cookies are super easy to make and are extremely yummy!
