Ahhh, the classic Chicken Noodle Soup. Growing up I always leaned towards the chicken noodle soup over the tomato soup when I was sick. I just loved the noodles in it. But as I grew older, nothing made me feel more queasy than the taste of aluminum soup. So, for all my sicko's out there - this is THE soup to get you feelin better. 

And for all my cozy people - this is THE soup to bundle up with. 

It all starts with the broth. I made mine from scratch (which you can find here) and just.... nothing beats it - honestly. You can absolutely use...

Bone broth doesn't exactly sound like something that's jaw drop worthy. It's kind of intense, actually. I mean...a liquid that's made of simmered bones....

Ok i'll stop. LOL. 

BUT, the benefits of bone broth are so incredible. It's filled with nutrients, can help with reducing inflammation and heal the gut, can aid in sleep and support in weight loss. It's the shit.

I typically get mine from the store, canned or boxed. But I really wanted to make a homemade broth full of as much flavor as possible. I also just so happened to have a chicken carcas...

How tomorrow is January 2020 is beyond me. This year went by in two seconds. I think we can all agree there...but then I think the older we get the easier time goes by and faster and faster and faster it goes each year. It's amazing honestly..and sort of, scary! But with each year is a brand new chapter and I think that is always something to look forward to. So, cheers to 2020! & what better way to cheers than with a cupcake...made with Champagne!?

I am one to grab the cheap bottle of champagne because, let me be honest...it goes down quick, s...

Literally, one blink and it went from Summer to Christmas. Where has the time gone? How is the year 2020 here??? The month, where life changes are to go into effect, is right around the corner. Good ol January. What are your new years resolutions? I have to begin wedding planning so I'm planning to make the gym a part of my weekly routines come the new year. And of course..shed some weight, which I feel is on everyones "to do" list. But UNTIL then...here are some donuts. Just what you need for the ending of this year! 

I have fried donuts...

can you believe Christmas is NEXT WEEK?! I've barely gotten any shopping done {silently panicking} But.... I did create the most delicious, chocolate chip cookie recipe... EVER. It's simple, gooey, crispy and just...perfect. I used browned butter for the first time and I am wondering what the hell I've been doing the past 28 years of my life. The browned butter really added an entire level of nuttiness and passion. It's the blind date this cookie desperately needed....falling in love, happily ever after.

Now the browned butter is so easy but de...

I remember eating cream puffs as a child - fully frozen. You know, those containers you get in the freezer section at the grocery store filled with little cream puffs? Those. I wouldn't even care to let them thaw out, I was little - so, a cream puff was a cream puff, to me. These seem a little intimidating to make from scratch but trust me, super easy. These are perfect for the holidays too! 

Now, this begins with the elegant sounding - Pâte à Choux. Which is a simple dough made of water, butter, flour & eggs. But in this case, an extra in...

It's amazing to me, how one person can walk right into your life, unexpected, and change everything. That's how I feel about him... he was the man I had always prayed for. I wake up every morning and still can't believe how blessed I am to have him in my life. Every time I look at him I lose my breathe, each time .. just a little bit more than the last....and to think he is going to be my HUSBAND. EEEEEeee!!! I could jump forever!!

I've never felt this kind of love before. When I look at him, I feel... at home. I feel secure, grounded, com...
