Pinworthy Projects Party

You guys…Christmas is NEXT WEEK! Are you panicking? I’m not…yeah, I’m lying…I am totally in full panic mode. I don’t have a single gift wrapped yet! I’ve been way too busy making coffee cocktails, making cookies with my littles and eating dark chocolate popcorn mix.

You guys have been totally rocking the projects though. Here are just a few that caught my eye.

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts

So, I woke up this weekend and realized we were less than two weeks away from Turkey day. Yes, in case you weren’t aware…Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. Have you started thinking about your menu yet? Side dishes are where I put most of my effort because they are my favorite part. Usually green beans are our green vegetable of choice and, while they will still be making an appearance on this year’s table, I am completely obsessed with these maple bacon Brussels sprouts.

Maple bacon Brussels sprouts are the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving...or any day.

Easy Dinner Recipes Meal Plan – Week 19

Whew…this week just flew by! Between my travel to BlogHer Food {amazing, by the way} and then a holiday smack in the middle of the week, I don’t think I ever got back on track. I’m using this weekend to catch up and get my meal plan all set for the next two weeks since we are staring down a major holiday here soon. I love the easy dinner recipes we include in these weekly meal plans. It makes it so easy to make sure we get dinner on the table even on the busiest nights.

Skip the stress of deciding what is for dinner each night and use our easy recipes meal plan instead!

Now, let me see what you’ve been working on this week! I love clicking through and checking out all the great stuff you share at our party.

Caramel Apple Bruschetta

For the last two weeks, H has been going with friends to our local fall festival pretty frequently. It is almost time for it to close for the season so everyone has been taking advantage of the nice weather and visiting a few times before the end. Each time you go, you get an apple to bring home. Three people attending = 3 apples per visit. So, I’ve accumulated a lot of apples and needed  way to use them all before they went bad. I always love a good bruschetta so I decided to make caramel apple bruschetta with our apples.

Cranberry Orange Sweet Rolls

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pillsbury. The opinions and text are all mine.

Each and every Christmas since I can remember, we have all woken up to gifts from Santa and spent the morning opening other gifts and enjoying breakfast together. It is a tradition that we have kept even now that I am an adult. I try to incorporate items from my childhood memories as often as possible in both the traditions and the foods that accompany them. One of my favorites is a blend of my childhood favorite breakfast food and my current love of cooking: cranberry orange sweet rolls.
