{slow cooker queso}

I legit debated for at least 30 minutes now about whether or not I should be sharing this recipe today.

Here’s the deal – It’s not that this queso is not delicious – because let’s keep it really real. It is DELICIOUS!!! It’s just that I have been trying really hard to clean up my act, food-wise.

And now that I’ve edited photos + thought about it, I accidentally added all the items to my target drive-up order. FML!

I went back and forth on this issue for waaay to long, but then I decided you all need a little queso in your lives too! Ha!

It’s just the right thing to do.

{breakfast croissant strata}

Nothing screams HOLIDAYS more than a breakfast casserole. We grew up on Christmas morning breakfast casserole. My Mom still makes the exact same breakfast to this very day. The nostalgia, ya know?

Well, I picked up the Half Baked Harvest new cookbook Super Simple. Flipped through it for a bit and stumbled on the most beautiful image. A breakfast casserole. With a more sophisticated name: Buttery Croissant Strata. I may have drooled.

Buttery croissants. Melty cheese. Crispy prosciutto. All baked to a warm goodness.

{the perfect fall salad}

With the Fall weather we tend to go with more hearty soups + pastas. But, this girl still craves a good green salad. I’m currently hooked on arugula. It’s so pepper + delish, I can eat it daily and not get sick of it. I’m really trying to be better at sharing recipes so today felt like the perfect day to share this goody!
