Apple Cranberry Crisp - the easiest Thanksgiving dessert! Sliced apples and whole berry cranberry sauce topped with a crunchy oat topping.

Hi guys!

We wrapped up our last weekend of fall sports this past weekend so hopefully that means I’ll get some new recipes up now. Also? Those last 2 games were so stupid cold that I had 3 layers on and eventually wrapped myself in a blanket that I found in the back of the Jeep.

I mean, what’s the point of living in Texas if it’s going to be 27 degrees in November?

I’m not big on Thanksgiving recipes and would really like to skip right over to Christmas cookies but I do want to share this dessert that I’ve already made twice. We’re obsessed.

I make the same recipes for Thanksgiving dinner every single year but for some reason I like to try different dessert recipes. I don’t think I’ve ever made a traditional pumpkin pie. I made this last week and didn’t photograph it because I didn’t expect us to love it but it barely lasted a day in my house so I had to make it again!

Hi guys!

The kids are back in school! How excited are you?!

I’m more excited that I’ve ever been in my life.

I’m going back to yoga! I’m taking the dog paddleboarding! I’m gonna take my butt back to bed after I drop them off at least once a week!

And I’m most excited to get back to hiking if Texas ever cools down. I checked my weather app on the way to football practice last night and it said it felt like 108.

108.

Texas. Stop it.

Also, why did my kid want to play football in August in Texas? It’s 108 degrees and he’s running around in full pads for a couple hours a day.

No thanks.

Apple and Brie Grilled Cheese - the perfect fall sandwich recipe! Turkey, brie, and fresh apple slices. Plus, a honey drizzle!

Have I told you guys that I’m obsessed with sandwiches lately?

I’ve never in my life been a sandwich person. I don’t ever just make a sandwich for lunch or go to a sandwich shop.

But one day a few weeks ago, I was in a mood so I took the husky for a hike and spent the entire hike thinking about sandwiches.

Like, 3 hours of thinking about sandwiches.

When my phone had service, I was on Yelp looking up sandwich places in the area.

I got a sandwich on the way home and haven’t stopped ever since.

So to say that this Apple and Brie Grilled Cheese is my favorite thing I’ve made in a while is the understatement of the year.

Happy Friday eve!

You guys.

I think we may have made our final lake trip of the year last weekend.

It was cold.

I think I lasted 30 minutes before I wrapped myself in all 4 of our towels and then they eventually followed me out.

So depressing.

Not really sure what I’m going to do with my weekends now.

On the brightside, maybe it will finally be cool enough for long hikes with the husky. We went for one last week and by about mile 4, she led me to the lake and then just stood in water up to her chest for a good 15 minutes.

Also, haven’t been able to have the top off the Jeep since May so I’m definitely looking forward to that, too.

Hey guys! Happy almost Friday!

This is a recipe that I originally posted in, like, 2011 or some ridiculous long time ago but I reshot it a couple weeks ago mostly so that I had an excuse to eat them again. So if it sounds familiar, that’s why.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you about a fun Char-Broil event I attended down in Austin last week. I very rarely get to attend events like this so I was pretty excited when it worked out and I got to sneak out of the house for a few hours to hang out with friends and eat lots of food.
