I’m having a lovely and c-o-z-y season.  Lots of cooking happening in my kitchen this week from basic meals to holiday baking.  I’ll share some recipes with you this week. 🙂 Wishing you all a blessed season.  ♥

Here’s what’s cooking in our home this week:


Note: I often eat a different breakfast than the ones I feed my family.  For example, lately I eat a bit of Greek yogurt with fresh berries, peaches, ground flaxseed, wheat germ, almond milk, and a few other ingredients.  It fills me up and is incredibly nutritious.

  • Oatmeal with bananas, dried cherries & flax, smoothies x 2

  • Scrambled eggs, fruit parfaits
  • Breakfast pizza squares, o.j., bananas
