And so the most jam-packed week of my life is underway and I’ve got to say — so far, so good!

What’s not to love? Friends, family, and delicious food is right around the corner and for that, I’m super, SUPER grateful! Oh and total humble brag here but I need to mention it since I won’t be posting next week.

smoked gruyere and pumpkin mac n cheese

Looking for the ultimate side dish for Thanksgiving?! Look no more! This smoked gruyere and  pumpkin mac n cheese is just what the doctor ordered. It’s smoky, savory, slightly sweet in just the right way, and utterly addicting.

Halloween Candy Grilled Cheese with Brie, Mascarpone, Raspberry Jam + Crushed Chocolate Peanut Butter Candies

Happy almost Halloween friends! I still have no idea what I’m going to be tomorrow but I’m guessing it will be a mashup of all the random stuff in my closet. Maybe I’ll tie some old costumes together and be a half Sailor Moon half Pikachu anime hybrid? Or maybe I’ll take a creepier route and glue together my old Ronald Mcdonald and Guy Fieri costumes and zombie-fy them? Hmmmm… what shall I do? Decisions, decisions! Continue reading
