{the perfect side salad}

Last month I scored last minute tickets to Rachel Devaux’s book signing in Larkspur. She released a book full of her easy, laid-back, nutrient-rich recipes, Rachael’s Good Eats.. If you follow her on Instagram, then you know. Rachel was legit the sweetest influencer I’ve ever met. She took time to give each person a giant hug, ask where you came from. I told her I live for her Sugar cleanse. Which she then flipped to the page in the book – there is a 2-day sugar cleanse that I plan to try next week! Oh and Bridger, her husband then offered to take our picture with my phone. No rush, just very chill and made everyone feel so special for coming. I could go on and on….

{coffee cake cookies}

Bay saw a TikTok of a girl making these the other day. We watched the video + gathered all the ingredients and piece-milled the recipe. You guys – these are quite possibly the best cookies I’ve ever had. I know, I know – I’ve probably said that before. But, you gotta trust me on this one.

The recipe – intense. The outcome – worth it! The dough – dangerous.

Bay made me a batch to take to the Omega Nu Bunco tonight, so if you’re there, be sure to grab one and let me know what you think!!

{sausage egg biscuit casserole}

Can you believe we’re already talking Holidays? Or is that just me? Ha!

We officially put up our Christmas lights on our house. And have them plugged in! Bay + I put them up while Cory was golfing last weekend. He would have NEVER put them up this early, but he hasn’t complained. I think he’s just relived he didn’t have to do it. lol.

And, if I had a fake tree – it would also be up and lit up right now! But, we have to wait until Thanksgiving.

I got realllllly off topic….. I’m really here to share a new recipe!!

This breakfast casserole is incredibly easy to put together It can be made the night before and stored in the fridge until it’s go time. Pop into the oven and you’re good to go! This is the perfect, throw together, meal when you are feeding a small crowd or for the Holidays.

Wonder if the fam bam would be down with trying something new this Christmas morning?

This Perfect Fall Salad is tossed with a tangy honey mustard dressing. Add fresh mixed greens, crunchy honeycrisp apple slices, creamy feta cheese and crispy, salty prosciutto. Then you get that perfectly sweet kick from the candied pecans! It’s DELICIOUS!

{trader joes // fall}

So, I randomly called TJ’s yesterday to see when they’d get their first shipment of pumpkins. When I heard, “they just got here” my heart skipped a beat. ha. For reals though. It’s been a hard week. Short weeks always rock my damn world. Just less days to cram the same amount of work.

I pulled up to pallets full of Cinderella pumpkins. Warty pumpkins. Tiny pumpkins. It truly made my whole day. Is that sad? Anyway, I took a stroll up and down every aisle picking up any of the fall new arrivals I could find. Since I LOVE seeing what everyone gets from TJ’s and what they’re going to make with the items, I thought fuck it – I will too ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope it brings you some joy too. Or maybe I’m the only creep that feels pure happiness from a good Trader Joe’s haul? ha!!!
