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 t...

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 ev...

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, bu...

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...

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...

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 li...

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 - regar...

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 fo...
