Sprinkle Thumbprint Cookies with Icing









































Hey friends!
I'm smack dab in the middle of holiday cookie baking and I couldn't be happier.
I LOVE listening to Christmas music and baking by the glow of twinkling lights - so cozy!

Today I am sharing a recipe that I have been trying to perfect for years. Thumbprint cookies
are my husband's absolute favorite cookie and not just any thumbprint cookie - Giant Eagle
grocery store thumbprint cookies. Giant Eagle is a very popular grocery store chain in the
Pittsburgh, PA area, where my husband is from. He grew up enjoying these delicious, buttery
cookies and every time we go to visit we have to stop by Giant Eagle to get some!

Pasta with Shrimp, Olive Oil, Garlic and Chili Flakes

Shrimp Pasta








































Hey friends! It's been awhile since I've shared a dinner recipe around here, so today I'm
sharing a shrimp and pasta entree that is so delicious! It's pretty easy too -  cleaning
the shrimp is the hardest part!

The ingredient list is pretty minimal, which I love - especially for a weeknight dinner!
Shrimp, pasta, tomatoes, fresh spinach, a few spices and extra virgin olive oil is all
you need.

Paint and Shake Ornaments








































Let's get crafty!
There's just something about the holidays that gets me into a crafty mood.
I don't know why - it's not like I don't have a million other things to do, but cleaning,
baking and shopping can wait. Let's make some cute new ornaments for the tree!

Fall Fun with Solo Stove

Solo Stove Outdoor Fire Pit
If you need me this weekend, you'll find me here, sitting by our Solo Stove Bonfire.
It's my new favorite thing to do!

We've had an outdoor fire pit for years and it's been nice, but after sitting by it for
awhile you and your clothes begin to smell like a fire pit and no one likes that!

Paleo Cranberry Orange Muffins








































Most Sunday afternoons during the fall and winter you will find me in my kitchen making
a big pot of soup, followed by some type of muffin or corn bread. Sometimes I stick to our
favorites like vegetable pastachicken noodle or lentil soup and other times I try new
recipes that I've pinned or found in one of my many cookbooks.  My muffin Pinterest board
has close to 300 recipes that have sparked my interest, so I have plenty of new recipes to
try!
