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 about where you are, but here in the Midwest, it is finally – FINALLY – feeling like fall.

The weather is cooler and perfect for snuggling under blankets with a cup of coffee. The leaves are changing. Sweaters are being worn.

And my brain is already thinking ahead to Thanksgiving.

I know, I know. We still have to get through Halloween first. But then we get to one of the best holidays of the year! 

So I am going to say it’s not too early to start planning my Thanksgiving dinner menu. Right? Starting with a classic: Sweet Potato Casserole.
