{bay bakes // chocolate chip cookie bars}

Sweet. Salty. Chocolaty. Shall I keep going?

If you’re working on your quarantine bod too, I got a good one for you. Really, Bay has a good one for you!

In the last week or so there is one thing I’ve become very good at, taste testing! Ha! And these bars get my stamp of delicious approval.

Is it possible that baking cookies into the form of bars actually makes them taste better? I think Bay might be on to something here!

{christmas light cookies | letters to santa}

SHOP: Pajamas

Bay Bakes. It’s be a while, but my favorite (not-so) little baker is back. You see, Bay’s now a teenager. So, sometimes she’s all about the blog, like right now. And other times, not so much. Ha! When she’s willing to bake, I take her up on it!

She made the cutest + yummiest Christmas Light Cookies. They are so fun and festive.

I included the sweetest Letter To Santa free printable at the end of this blog post. Although we no longer host our Letters To Santa night, Bay will 100% be forced to write a letter anyway!

{asian meatballs}

I need to come up with a new name for this recipe. It just sounds bad. Or is my mind in the gutter? Ha!

Friends – I tried a new air fryer recipe the other night. Annnddd, it was a hit! Bay and I both had it for dinner. Then lunch the next day. We loved it! I’m including oven direction with this recipe as well, since I’ve also made it back in the day before air fryers were a thing.

This recipe tastes so fresh + delicious. The best part – it’s healthy and totally Weight Watchers friendly. You guys, I’m back on the WW train. I’ve been tip toeing around the program for the last month and last week, I am BACK!

And right when I get back, the entire program changes. FML! Now you get 3 options. Say whhhattt? I’m currently using the old program, but I’m attending the Saturday meeting to get all the details. So I can decide which option works best for me. Stay tuned.

{DIY pumpkin centerpiece}

Wood Pumpkin Serve Board (on sale) | 9″ Pumpkin Halloween Décor Cream | Orange Berry Stem | Light Up Skull (similar) | Candle: Chloe & Co Golden Moss

The Faux Pumpkin Centerpiece DIY was born last week. I typically stick with the real deal when it comes to pumpkins. I just love real pumpkins. The colors. The textures. I legit cannot get enough…Ha! But, if you remember from last year, I had a little mishaps with the REAL pumpkin centerpiece. Although it was fucking gorgeous, it almost ruined my life.

Okay, I may be exaggerating a little bit.

It rotted out. I picked it up to move it and the whole pumpkin melted in my hands. All over my carpet + dining room table. The smell that came off that thing could probably kill some kind of small animal. It was horrific. Ha! I shared a photo of it below for old times sake.
