Hello November! For me, November means the start of what I like to call soup season! Soups are the perfect way to start the fall/winter season. I enjoy making soups for my family and finding ways to put a new spin on old favorites. When I came across this lasagna soup recipe on the Food Network Kitchen, I just had to try it! I made a few tweaks to the recipe but, it came out delicious! This recipe takes about 10 minutes to prep and 30 minutes to cook! Continue reading

One of my favorite cocktails is a Pineapple Moscow Mule. It is slightly sweet, very refreshing, and the best part is it’s usually served in a beautiful copper mug! I love the look of copper and these copper mugs are perfect for hot or cold beverages. Continue reading

I am so excited….I made my first video! I wanted to be brave and try something new with my blog so I decided to learn how to create and edit videos! Well, after many hours and several failed attempts I finally finished my first fall kitchen tour video! I decided to make this video a fall kitchen tour because fall is my favorite season! I love the colors of fall, the cool crisp breezes, college football, and the comfy warm fashions!
I also enjoy decorating my home for every season and my favorite room in the house is my kitchen! I remodeled the kitchen about nine years ago and it is still holding up! Trust me… it has been through many family gatherings, science projects, and sticky hands! It is definitely the center of our home. I am thankful to God for all the years spent with family and friends in this kitchen.
Now this is my first video so it is definitely not perfect! The lighting is not the best and the music is too loud for my voice over LOL. Also, it looks a little blurry in full screen mode so it’s better to view with the mini screen. Overall, I am happy with the result for my first time! I hope you enjoy this fall kitchen tour, let me know what you think in the comments! Happy September!
Below is the link to the recipe for the 2 point Weight Watchers Pumpkin Muffins mentioned in the video. Enjoy!
Stay busy being fabulous,
Have you ever searched for something only to find that it was right in your own backyard? Continue reading
I love tea and brunch cake!
Years ago I purchased this book called Tea with Friends, it is a cute little book that gives teas, recipes, and entertaining ideas for every month. I love tea and, of course, a little something sweet to go with a cup of tea is perfect! Recently, a couple of girlfriends and I got together for a little brunch. Debbie supplied the tea and I brought this delicious Blueberry Cinnamon Crumble Brunch Cake. I found the recipe on a blog called yourpartytunedup.com. She has such cute party ideas and fun recipes. I wanted to share the recipe for this brunch cake, it was light and easy to make! Here is all you need: Continue reading
I love finding good recipes! When you are busy and you finally find the time to go to the grocery store and cook…. it better be good! So over the years, I have collected a few good recipes and I am always on the hunt for new ones. Some of my best recipes come from my family, friends, good old cookbooks, and now the internet just makes it so easy. In my post on How To Host A Book Club, I shared some amazing pictures of my friend Debbie’s fabulous meal. I said I would share her great recipes…so here they are!
I enjoy watching football and I love to tailgate! Whether we are watching at home or at the stadium cheering on my favorite team… Go Bruins! I like to decorate and set up a nice spread of yummy snacks and tasty treats.
Here are some of my favorite game time snacks: Honey-glazed chicken wings, Cheeseburger sliders, Hot crab dip, pizza snack mix, and a new favorite-chocolate chip cookies stuffed with an Oreo. Continue reading
