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...

A bite so glorious. What's a better pairing than gooey brie & sweet jam? You NEED these at your Thanksgiving table. They are so easy and so delicious..they just SCREAM Holiday! Did I mention there's only THREE ingredients? An appetizer this cute will not last long so make sure you hide a few in your pocket for later.

Now. Puffed Pastry. It's a packaged ingredient that can make anything feel upgraded. You can use it for just about anything and it takes the dish to a new level. It's buttery, flaky and makes for such a presentation. And by present...

Guys....Thanksgiving is just around the corner! Like...the shortest, smallest corner! I love me a good ol Thanksgivin. It's the day to stuff yourself until you can't breathe and it's totally acceptable and forgiving. I always love a side of potatoes, whether they are mashed, baked, mixed with pounds of butter and cream cheese, twice baked, roasted, hassle back'ed, loaded, scalloped.....should I go on? How many ways are there to make a potato? I mean there are chips, fries of all shapes...it's limitless. 

But for this dish...I made au gratin. Bu...

Cinnamon rolls are that morning kiss you didn't know you needed. I freakin LOVE cinnamon rolls. I mean, who doesn't? I just recently had cinnamon rolls...like...yesterday. I had gotten the classic go to tubes of course, the ones that used to scare the crap out of you when you peeled it open? But now..they don't ever pop and you gotta smack the end of a counter with it....what ever happened to the peel pop anyway? Am I the only one who has noticed?? 

But but back to cinnamon roll love - regardless of how you eat them, store bought...dairy f...

Anything served with cheese is an ultimate winner in my book. Beer Cheese?? faaagetabouttih. Call that a wrap! I would get a bath with beer cheese. Don't look at me like that.....like you wouldn't.....? But WHISKEY Cheese???? Have you ever heard such a thing???? Buckle your belts, kids.

But this isn't just any ordinary pretzel nugget - this is another spin off my favorite shot "pickle back" This is a pickle infused pretzel dough with a Jameson infused cheese.

I'll let your head wrap around that for a sec.

This is a pretzel dough I've always come...

Is everyone ready for Halloween tomorrow? There's this huge uproar currently because tomorrow is supposed to be a rainy, rainy day and people are wanting to switch Halloween to Friday. I mean when I was younger and it rained on Halloween my dad would drive me house to house - you just manage. Don't be changin the date of Halloween people!

I've gotten all my bags of candy ready in this cute little black Halloween bucket. Funny thing is...nobody ever visits me, I am in an apartment complex. Looks like I'll have to eat it all myself!

Now onto bigge...

Anyone sick yet, like me? This major change in weather has my immune system face planted into the ground! While trying to get in all my vitamins and veggies over the weekend, as I binged watched movies **motionless**on the couch, I was craving something hearty. And this whole roasted chicken was, IT. I am never too pumped working with whole chickens because it skeeves me out just a tad but really, it's one of the easiest things to cook and so simple! 

I wash and pat the chicken dry before working with it. Anyone else wash their chicken bef...
