Easy Glitter Christmas Ornaments

We are really into Christmas and literally change the decorations in pretty much every part of our home for Christmas.  We have about five Christmas trees of different sizes around the house.  We even take down artwork and put up Christmas decorations instead.  I’d probably change out pieces of furniture too if Mathlete wouldn’t give me a hard time about it!  This year, I decided to add a little Christmas sparkle to our paper mache tree and made some super easy glitter Christmas ornaments to hang on it.

Turkey Tacos with Cranberry Salsa

Thanksgiving always leaves a bunch of leftovers in our house. I know most people try to give them away so they don’t have to worry about the food going to waste or having to eat the same thing over and over again. I am just the opposite. I love leftovers and always look for a way to use them in different ways so no one says “turkey, again!” Being major lovers of Tex-Mex and Mexican food {my 4 year old eats orders a bowl of guacamole for himself at dinner}, I knew I wanted to put a little spice into my leftovers dish this year and make turkey tacos with cranberry salsa.

Use your Thanksgiving leftovers to make delicious turkey tacos with cranberry salsa. #UseYourLeftovers

Thanksgiving Quinoa Stuffing with Pancetta

We are ticking away the days until Thanksgiving at a fast pace. It is almost scary to think it will be here in just a few weeks. Now is the time when most of us are thinking about our menus, selecting recipes and finalizing shopping lists. As you work on yours, I have a great recipe that you should consider making a spot for on your table: quinoa stuffing with pancetta.
The dressing {or stuffing depending on where you are from} is my favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal. I like to try all different versions and you can sometimes find two or three on our table for the holiday. This quinoa version is perfect for anyone who wants or needs to be gluten free.

This is a great recipe with all the flavors of traditional Thanksgiving stuffing but made gluten free by using quinoa instead. Quinoa Stuffing with pancetta is an awesome gluten free option.

Mini Stuffing Muffins

SoFab Disclosure

Holy almost mid-November already. Where is time going? Have you started thinking about Thanksgiving yet? We like to try and get together for a little pre-Thanksgiving with our friends {a Friendsgiving if you will} so I am definitely heavily focused on Thanksgiving recipes right now. Our meals with friends tend to be the kind where you can grab a few things and eat them on the move between one group of friends to another or while trying to keep all the kids at the table and eating. These mini stuffing muffins are the perfect option for that kind of meal because they are one bite and require no utensils!

This is the greatest idea to make Thanksgiving parties so easy! Make mini stuffing muffins so they are one bite and don't require any utensils.

Thanksgiving Mini Pallet Art

I love decorating for Thanksgiving but often find I just don’t have the time to do a lot of decoration changes.  So, I typically focus on decorating the house for fall and then add a few Thanksgiving specific touches around the house as the holiday gets closer.  This year, I created some Thanksgiving mini pallet art to display on my mantle. It is the perfect last minute craft to toss up for Thanksgiving since it takes only a few supplies and almost no time to complete.

Thanksgiving pallet style art you can make in under 30 minutes using wood shims! [Read more...]

Back in September, I quietly set about doing Whole 30 for the month. I post a few snippets here and there on Instagram but I definitely wasn’t shouting to the world that I was immersed in a whole month of new eating habits. During the month, I craved granola because I could no longer have my delicious granola bars that had become snack staples in my life. Of course, being September, I needed pumpkin too so this paleo pumpkin granola was born.

The most delicious homemade pumpkin granola and it is paleo too! Totally Whole 30 compliant.
