Panettone French Toast Casserole
IS IT TIME TO PLAN CHRISTMAS MORNING BREAKFAST YET? Y’all can keep Christmas lunch and Christmas dinner, ’cause I know what’s up. CHRISTMAS MORNING BREAKFAST.
When you’re little and your parents debate whether to enjoy HOMEMADE HOLIDAY BREAKFAST or presents first, it’s legit a hard choice. Now I want to kick my younger self (not really — don’t kick kids) and scream, “BREAKFAST FIRST. ALWAYS BREAKFAST FIRST.” (more…)
Pumpkin Bread Stuffed with Chai Cheesecake
It always feels like when I have the most stories to tell, I find myself silent under their weight. When Mike and I broke up years ago, I just lost all my words for awhile. My thoughts were traveling a million miles a minute, making all the connections, tying the hum of a rusty refrigerator in Missouri to a gauze of silence in Denver. I have those threads sewn up in my heart but the stories take too much work to form. Not too much, but more than I’m ready for each week.

Brooklinen provided me with a set of their Classic Hardcore Sheet Bundle for free to review, but my opinions are always my own.
Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread
Four years ago, I had just moved into my new apartment in Cornelius, North Carolina, and made my first recipe in my new kitchen: German Chocolate Cheesecake. Today, I’m surrounded by boxes in varying states of unpackedness in my new apartment in San Diego (La Mesa, to be more specific), California, and I just made my first recipe in my new kitchen: Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread! Most of my apartment is still in disarray, but I’m eager to share with you the ONE room I’ve finished, my bedroom. I’m super proud of how cute it turned out! I always love when people post tours of their newly decorated spaces, so I thought you might like to see mine.
Blueberry Biscuits with Almond Glaze
We love our blueberry biscuits here in the South, typically scooped up from a beloved fast-food fried chicken chain. For a quick option, the drive-thru variety works just fine, but graduating to a homemade version is well worth the additional effort – which is not much effort at all.
