In case anyone was wondering, yes it is still November. Its not technically the Christmas season, although you wouldn’t know it. Christmas music fills the airwaves, Santa is already at the mall and lights are everywhere. So, when my youngest daughter asked me to make her favorite Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins, I was thrilled.
We are teaming up with Annie Selke of Pinecone Hill this month for a Breast Cancer Awareness giveaway!
Finally! We got a break from the hot weather here in the South. Autumn has arrived. Chilly mornings get me in the mood for soups and stews or anything that simmers on the stove or in a slow cooker.
And I love chili!
But, we are trying so hard at our house to lighten up and eat better, I thought I would deviate from my normal beef chili and try something new.
Note—-this is a repost from a last year post, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. This month, will be teaming up with a textile designer to create 2 more mastectomy pillows to be given away to someone for themselves, or to give to a loved one in need. Be thinking about who in your life could benefit from this. Check back October 21st for details. In the meantime, #checkyourself.
Nothing conjures up satisfying memories and nostalgic comfort more than a soft worn piece of fabric.
Sometime during the high school years, my best friend, Jill and I, used to be, should I say, slightly mischievous. I like this word, although “pain in the ass” and “annoying” were occasional words regulated to us by worn out parents.
So, you know when you get something in your brain that you want and its all you can think about until you have it? Last week, when Kim and I took a road trip to the Ikea in Charlotte, besides a list a mile long of things we were looking for (like fiddle leaf figs, dorm room curtains, plates, etc.), all I really wanted to make my day complete, were the famous Ikea Swedish Meatballs.
I have loved swedish meatballs since I was a kid, and my mom used to make them for my Swedish grandfather. The rich creamy gravy is the key in my opinion. Smothering the meatballs and buttered egg noodles with this rich savory sauce completes this comfort dish. As our day progressed, I was licking my chops just thinking about it.
