Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies with Easy Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Well, just like that it's fall, y'all! This is truly my favorite time of the year. I may have mentioned this a time or two somewhere in the previous posts on this blog.


Homemade Saltine Crackers

When it comes to entertaining, I like to surprise family and friends with unexpected little treats. I think it's fun to serve something a little out of the ordinary on special occasions. I typically mix the menu surprises in with the usual suspects, like veggie and fruit trays, so as not to stir up too much trouble. It's a guarantee I will include homemade dips, homemade bread and butter pickles, homemade potato chips, fancy (and sometimes stinky) cheeses as well as homemade jam on my snack table menu. However, one of my all-time favorite ways to spoil my guests is by whipping up a batch or two of these simple, homemade, saltine crackers!

Slow Cooker Two-Bean Turkey Chili

Well, the school year is back in full-swing for all of us, maybe it is for you too by now. It's always a little bittersweet for me when the kids start a new year, and it's tempting for me to turn into a big pile of mush over the fact that soon both of them will be another year older. However, the summer of 2018 was a pretty awesome one for us and we got out and about for a lot of fun and adventure. Truly, I feel that we made the best of our time off together. So, I'm trying to focus on the amount of travel we experienced together, what we learned on our outings and all the amazing sights we saw.  I'm also focusing on the positive aspects of the start of the school year.
