Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. Do you remember last Sunday how I shared all the pretty autumn leaves here in Colorado? Well, this past Thursday it snowed. All I have to say is that I’m cold, and sooo not ready for snow season. I absolutely hate to complain, but that’s […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. Happy first Sunday of October! Hoping you all are enjoying fall as much as I am! Up here in the mountains, we (very sadly) are on the downward side of the fall foliage peak. Our fall leaves were the absolute prettiest (see photos below). I […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. It’s crazy how once September hits, the hustle of autumn really sets in. It’s not that summer was slow, it’s more that fall is always just so full. I love it and I hate it, but I mostly love it. I will say that finding […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. After all the excitement from last week’s big wedding, it actually felt good to jump back into a regular workweek. Oh man, hosting a 200 person wedding is certainly a big undertaking…and I didn’t even do that much! The bride, the groom, and the parents […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. Happy Sunday! I’m writing today’s Favorite’s post late Friday night, after a 16+ hour day in the kitchen working on wedding cakes. To say that I baked a lot of cakes would be an understatement. And yet I still have some to finish up in […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. We have officially entered “wedding” week. By this time next week, my brother will be married. It’s just now hitting me that we are really growing up. I mean, Brendan is twenty-nine, so it’s not like we’re not “grown-up”. But he’s the first of my […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. The past few days have been all about prepping and planning for Autumn. Yes, I know, it’s only the beginning of August. None of us are ready to start talking fall just yet. But the thing about working in the content creation world? You have […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. Many times when I first set out to write this post I have almost zero thoughts. Sometimes it can really take a minute…or more like many minutes, to really get into a writing flow. Even then, it can be hard. I’ll be the first to […]

Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post. (my favorite little sister) Looking at my calendar, I am only just now realizing that it’s somehow already the last Sunday of July. Summer 2019 is surely flying by, isn’t it? This makes me feel both sad and excited. Sad because like most of you, […]

  • Brown Butter Pumpkin Fettuccine Alfredo. It's Italian, but with a fall twist. It's creamy, warming, and finished off with salty, crispy pan fried cheese (yes. pan fried cheese. because I always like an extra special touch). So. Good. Recipe on HBH (linked in profile) Make this one soon. What’s your go-to Sunday night dinner? #eatingfortheinsta #f52grams #instayum #pumpkin #pasta
  • Spiced Pecan Apple Cider Doughnut Cake. Because nothing is better than Sunday baking in the fall. This is a new favorite. The key is ripple of sweet maple throughout the center of the cake makes it gooey and so dang good. And then well, butter and apples, and a good amount of cinnamon sugar too. Make this please. It will make your Sunday...and the leftovers are good all week long. Full recipe with details on HBH (link in profile). 🍎🍂
For the batter, beat together:
12 tablespoons soft salted butter

1 cup pecans, roughly choppedMix Maple sauce:

  • October nights require a good cocktail, enter the “Sleepy Hollow” Cocktail. An "eerie" name for a dang good tequila cocktail because I like to have fun with these drinks...but I like to make them GOOD 🎃 made with rosemary, orange infused honey, a good shot of tequila, a splash of pomegranate, some other things, and finished with an extra fancy sugared rim (mostly because it’s fun). Kind of like a margarita, but dressed up for October. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile. PS. I had the HARDEST time name this. What would you call this drink?? Get creative 💀#spookycocktailsaturday #Halloween #hbhcocktailsaturday #tequila
  • It is FREEZING here…think single digits cold! Sooo, I’m making my 3 Cheese Stuffed Shells, because when it’s this cold, you make cheesy pasta. To me this dish is kind of like cheese filled ravioli, but without all the work. These shells are beyond good (the sauce is everything...and it's all made in 1 skillet…easy). The full recipe lives in the new cookbook, HBH Super Simple. BUT I’m going to make the recipe - start to finish - on my stories currently...because we should all be making stuffed pasta shells this weekend. And? If you haven't pre-order the cookbook yet, the link is in my profile. #pasta #f52grams #hbhsupersimple
