Okay guys!

Today is the day!

Nicole and I have been busting our butts for weeks.

And by “our”, I mean her because she did most of the work here.

But it’s done! We wrote an ebook!

Who knew when we started S’mores Week three years ago that we’d eventually compile all the recipes into a pretty little book?!

We have THIRTEEN all new recipes that we’ve never shared anywhere before. Plus, all our old favorites from years past!

You want a preview of all the recipes you get when you download S’mores Addiction?!

You can get your own copy by subscribing to my email list or if you don’t want delicious recipes in your inbox, you can purchase the book for just $3.99 HERE.

Red Beans and Rice - the ultimate comfort food! Easy and cheap!
Are you in full-on fall mode yet?
Last week my mom and I were exchanging emails about all the fall candles we bought and I realized that I’ve officially moved onto fall.

Yep, burning “Sweater Weather” in every room of my house.

No shame. And I’ve had my windows open for weeks.

It’s 97 degrees in central Texas and I’m sweating buckets. But I don’t care. It’s fall in my head.

I’ve also moved onto fall foods. I bought so much squash last weekend. Literally every acorn squash my store had.

Every single one.

I’m all in on fall, guys.

Weekly Family Menu Plan - 5 weeknight dinners, a weekend breakfast, and a yummy dessert!

Heeeeey guys, happy Saturday!


I’d planned on going to the ice cream festival down in Austin but it’s looking like rain so maybe I’ll just stay home and watch Netflix all day. Maybe go pick up some Ben & Jerry’s. Who knows how wild it’ll get.

Any locals planning on braving the rain for ice cream? Snap me pictures! (Snapchat: amandalivesay)

Anyway, this week’s menu looks delicious. We’ve got lots of comfort-y food. A pot roast, cheesy potatoes, sticky chicken, breakfast sandwiches. Plus, enchiladas AND tacos. And a couple sweet treats because you deserve a treat.

S'mores Granola - eat your s'mores with a spoon! Crunchy granola with chocolate chunks, mini marshmallows, and Golden Grahams cereal!

Last day of S’mores Week!

I’m sad. Are you sad?

Don’t worry, Nicole and I have something very exciting coming up soon! Really soon.

Like, this weekend if we get our you-know-what together in time.

Spoiler: it involves me having an awkward conversation with a Target cashier at 9 pm last night about why I needed so many marshmallows and a jar of caramel sauce.
