Hunter Boots

Looks like
it's going to start
to rain and snow again.

Which makes me
want these
to keep my feet
warm and dry.

Apricot-Pistachio Sticky Buns

My first day of
Christmas Vacation
started yesterday.
Oh how I love
the feeling of waking up
with absolutely
no work to do at all!

So I decided
to lounge around the house
and make these...

Apricot-Pistachio Sticky Buns
Adapted from Pioneer Woman & Martha Stewart

1 Batch of my basic Cinnamon Roll Dough Recipe
6 tbsp Apricot Jam (more if needed)
1/2 cup chopped Pistachios
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar

1. Once you have made the cinnamon roll dough, roll it out of a floured surface.

2. Spread the apricot jam over the top making sure to distribute it evenly. 

3. Drizzle the melted butter over the dough, then sprinkle the chopped pistachios and brown sugar on top. 

4. Roll the dough up and cut into 1 inch slices. Bake according to the Cinnamon Roll Recipe directions.

Thanksgiving Vacation

I've returned from a
holiday away.

I was able to visit
my friends & family
in California...

And I got to see
my nephews!

Silly boys...

And my sister and I
went through a
"right of passage"
by preparing the
Thanksgiving meal!

We were very proud
of ourselves.

More iPhone Cases

I'm still in need 
of an iPhone case. 

Everyday I go without one 
is a day I  fear 
that I will drop my phone 
and it will crack...
or break...
or shatter into 
a million pieces.

Hence the reason 
I am obsessed with these...

Q & A

I am not that diligent
when it comes to keeping up
with my journal.

Well, lets be honest...

I don't even know
where my journal is
or if I still even have one.

But I think 
if I had this journal...

I would be excited 
to write in it 

Read more about it here.

Goat Cheese & Leek Crostini

Two things I love:
Goat Cheese & Leeks...

Which made this Crostini completely divine. 

Goat Cheese & Leek Crostini
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen

3 leeks, cut lengthwise and white and pale green parts sliced 1/4-inch thick
2 tbsp butter 

olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper 

6 slices of baguette
2 ounces goat cheese crumbled

1. Heat a large skillet over medium. Once hot, add butter and olive oil and once they’re fully melted and a bit sizzly, add the leek slices. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and cook leeks for 25 minutes, stirring them occasionally. 

2. While leeks cook, brush bread slices with olive oil.  Run under broiler until lightly toasted. 

3. Once leeks are done cooking, spread the goat cheese on top of the toast and sprinkle with caramelized leeks.
