This delicious butternut squash soup will put you in a very festive Thanksgiving mood after just one bite! It’s easy to make and it also is very inexpensive, so your wallet will be happy too!

Last year when I went to Type-A, I went out to eat with some of the girls on our last night there. I wasn’t in the mood for anything heavy, but I also did not want a salad. I opted for soup and decided to try their butternut squash soup. The warmth and flavor that I tasted in just that first bite, made me realize that I was definitely going to try and recreate it at home.

I have recently decided to re-brand myself as a food blogger. For the last 7 years, I have been one of those bloggers that write about EVERYTHING! However, staring in January, I will be changing my blog into a blog that mostly posts about food, homemaking, and travel. It is a scary transition, but one that I am super excited about.

I have always been a huge fan of Veggie Tales, so when I found out that in November, Netflix will be releasing the new “Veggie Tales in the House” series, I got super excited! In fact, blogger and recipe creator Andrea Lynn made this perfect pairing of Cucumber Rolls with Veggie(tales) Cream Cheese for us to share with you!

Thank you to the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism for sending my husband and I on an amazing romantic getaway. All opinions are 100% my own.

On our final morning in Gulf Shores, we packed up and cleaned up our beach side condo, drove down to Gulf State Park Pier to look around for a bit, and then we headed to Tacky Jacks to have breakfast before heading home. The moment we pulled into the parking lot, I fell in love with this restaurant.

Thanks to FlyBy Promotions for allowing me to preview Saving Christmas. I plan on going to the movies tomorrow evening with some friends to see it!

I am one of those people who has always loved Christmas. I grew up in a home where everything about this holiday was celebrated. We hung lights in true Griswold fashion (and even found ourselves competing like Tim the Tool Man Taylor with our other neighbors). My mom spent umpteen hours cooking and baking and preparing for the big day. As a kid, there was nothing more that I looked forward to, and as I have gotten older, my husband and I have passed that on to our kids and even share and celebrate in the festivities even more today.

My kids have always loved getting in the kitchen cooking with me. My daughter, who is now almost 17, can cook a full meal just as good as me. I think it has to do with training her from when she was little. I used to let her stir pots when she was too little to chop things, and then teaching her how to do the little things.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Colgate. I received a product sample for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Ever since I can remember I have been a lemon eater. I eat them like candy. I am not even joking. I am also a coffee drinker, chocolate eater, and serious food grazer. However, I did not know until recently that all of those things ruin the enamel on my teeth. Taking care of my teeth is super important these days (especially since I got braces), so taking care of that all too important portion of my smile is something I am trying to do. That is why I am glad I was introduced to the newest Colgate product — Colgate Enamel Health Toothpaste.

Thanks to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Tourism for sending my husband and I on this awesome romantic getaway. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

Staying in Gulf Shores and visiting all the amazing places that we visited like the Coastal Arts Center and Alligator Alley were awesome, however, the one place that my husband and I were super excited about checking out was Gulf State Park Pier. We had heard so many fishing stories from some of the local residents while at dinner at Cayman Grill the night before that we knew we just had to check it out.

One of my new favorite dishes to eat is orzo. This little bitty pasta can be used in any kind of recipe. You can use it in salads like this Tomatoes and Orzo recipe I made, or you can use it in soups and stews (I have a recipe coming soon for a Chicken Orzo Soup that you are just going to FLIP over). Today though, I wanted to share with you my new take — Cheesy Orzo Pasta.

Charities work throughout the year to raise funds to try to win the fight against breast cancer. They work hard to find answers to the puzzle of breast cancer and to discover new treatments for those with the devastating disease. Many people are familiar with October being breast cancer awareness month. But the work breast cancer charities do happens year round.
