This a collection of things I'm loving right now. I've included recipes that are perfect for this season and some of my favorite things. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and scroll through all the stuff I've enjoyed this week.
My mind has been on all things cozy lately. We are supposed to have our new fireplace insert installed tomorrow and after a month with electric heat I'm ready. I have a new understanding for anyone without wood heat. It's just a completely different type of warmth.
I share below some of my gluten free pantry staples. These aren't things we eat every day, but it's so nice to have some gluten free pasta or instant potatoes to serve as a quick side dish. I also share a few of my favorite snacks to have on hand.
New Home Favorites
There are lots of new home, kitchen and dining showing up in stores. I'm not quite ready for all the patio furniture yet, but I found some pieces that are perfect for the last months of winter to bring some coziness to your home.
Recipe Ideas for the Week
Stuff I Love
What I'm Watching - I just finished School of Chocolate on Netflix. I've watched Amaury Guichon's videos of his amazing chocolate creations and I loved learning how he does some of his techniques.
What I'm Reading - I had some unexpected down time and was able to read over half of The Accomplice by Lisa Lutz. So far I am loving this book! Lisa Lutz's Spellman series is one of my favorites. She is so great at building likable characters and stories with many layers.
What I'm Listening To - It's on my list to listen to the The Art of Being Well with Dr. Will Cole episode with Dr. Josh Axe. These are two of my favorite naturopathic doctors to learn from and I'm excited to hear their conversation.
What I'm Loving - I've been drinking more smoothies lately and I've been loving Barney Butter Unsweetened Almond Butter Powder. There's no dealing with the oil separating or trying to stir it!
