Sausage and Lentil Soup is thick and hearty, loaded with Italian sausage, lentils, and vegetables in a tomato-based broth. This is the comforting recipe you need this winter!

You guys, I swear I say this every single year, but I am trying to get ahead and stay organized with my holiday shopping.

Last year, I put forth quite the effort for about a week and then failed miserably and ended up shopping on Christmas Eve and wrapping gifts until about 2am.

Not this year, folks. I’m sitting at my computer right now monitoring Cyber Monday deals because this girl is not a Black Friday shopper. In fact, I’m not much of an in-person shopper period, unless we’re talking Target!

So I’m dedicating this day to tackling my shopping list while watching big, fluffy snowflakes swirl around outside!

Rum Balls are a classic holiday treat. Boozy, chocolatey and rich, store these beauties in the refrigerator for several days for an even better flavor!

Well, I’m fairly certain Ohio has skipped fall and went directly to winter, which is kind of a bummer considering you guys know fall is my jam.

Bring on the cozy sweaters, boots and everything pumpkin spice!

However, we’ve kinda missed out on those beautiful, brisk fall days and headed right into snow.

Yes, there are snowflakes present on Friday’s forecast.

So naturally, I’m already starting to think about cozy winter recipes and Christmas platter treats like these delicious Rum Balls.

I don’t know what the weather is like where you live right now, but the weather here in Ohio is all kinds of whacky.

Part of me is all Yes! It’s going to be 85 today, we can take Elle swimming and eat dinner on the patio.

The other part of me is all HELLO! It’s mid-September and I just want to sip a pumpkin spice latte and wear my new sweatshirt without being drenched in sweat by 2pm.
