october goals

October is here, with its Anne of Green Gables quotes, bouquets of sharpened pencils, changing leaves, and (hopefully) cooler temperatures. I am so excited. Along with April (the perfect point in spring) October is one of my favorite months. I love the crisp air, the colors of the trees, the sweaters, and all of the…

maple chai snickerdoodles

We’re closing out September with a subtle nod to fall with these maple chai snickerdoodles. They aren’t an in-your-face fall flavor like pumpkin or sweet potato might be, but they still have those warm spices that make you want to cozy up inside and wish that fall weather was here for good.

cherry frozen yogurt popsicles

Oh these popsicles. Cherry frozen yogurt popsicles are sooooo easy to throw together and use only four ingredients (two of which are listed in the name). Of course, the day I photographed these popsicles, we had a weird fluke power outage – perfect conditions for a frozen treat. Can you hear my sarcasm through the…

plum & peach galette with cinnamon whipped cream

What’s easier than pie? Galette. Specifically this plum & peach galette with cinnamon whipped cream. There are so many things to love about this plum and peach galette. It looks impressive, but is so simple and easy, and showcases the sweet natural flavors of summer. The buttery, flakey crust comes together with just a few…

5 Cookbooks I’m Loving this Summer

Do you ever get stuck in a meal planning rut? I try to find great seasonal recipes for our dinners, but by the end of the season I often feel like we’ve made the same recipes over and over again. Don’t get me wrong, I love most of these recipes (otherwise, why would I keep…
