I partnered up with ALDI for this amazingly delicious Bacon Cranberry Baked Brie recipe.

Bacon Cranberry Baked Brie - the perfect holiday appetizer! The sweet and salty combo is so delicious!

Do you do appetizers at your holiday meals?

You know I’m a big fan of an appetizer and look for any excuse to have one. I’ve been known to be too full for a holiday dinner because I hovered over the cheese board all afternoon.

I feel like a baked brie is the most perfect holiday appetizer. It’s easy, takes just a few minutes in the oven, and who doesn’t love melty cheese with deliciousness on top?

Maple Bacon Fudge - you have to make this at Christmas! The sweet and salty combo is perfect!

Hey guys, happy almost weekend!

I haven’t talked to you since Halloween so how was trick-or-treating? We’re really lucky that literally everyone in our large neighborhood has kids so Halloween is always a fun night around here.

But I guess now it’s time to move onto Thanksgiving. Or Christmas according to my Snapchat feed. You guys. Stop. It’s too early.

Normally I’m that psycho putting out lights the day after Halloween but I just can’t handle it happening so early this year. Plus, it’s still stupid hot in Texas.

I won’t lie, though, I was in Austin yesterday and may have run into Trader Joe’s for some of their holiday goodies. Christmas trees, I can skip for now. Buttercream truffles? GIMME.

Cheddar and Bacon Mashed Potatoes - the perfect side dish for every meal! These potatoes are loaded with sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon, and green onions!

So if you follow me anywhere, you know I was in Austin at BlogHer Food all weekend. It’s a conference for food bloggers where we all talk about what annoys us about our job and then we eat everything in the city.

And, in case you’ve ever wondered, I am horrible at conferences. (Very good at the eating part though.)

I showed up for 3 things the entire conference. And only stayed the full time for 1 of those.

Sitting still is hard for me, y’all.

Also, I sat down with a group of girls I didn’t know for the closing keynote and they asked if I had a business card.

And I didn’t.

I mean, do I seem like the kind of girl that carries business cards?

Anyway, one of the girls said, “Aww, you must be a new blogger!”

So that was kind of how the conference went for me.

I did get to hang out with friends that I’ve only ever known over the internet which was honestly the only reason I went to begin with so that totally made up for the conference being… ahem… lame.

And also there was lots of food!

Maple Bacon Rice Krispies Treats - the classic Rice Krispies Treats with a sweet and salty twist! These are so yummy!

Heeeeey guys! I can’t believe it’s Monday again. Why does this keep happening?!

Let’s go back to Friday, mmkay?

So how was the weekend?

I did that thing where I swore I was going to stay home all weekend and clean my house and then ended up doing the exact opposite.

The monthly food truck festival over in Temple snuck up on me this month and you know I can’t miss that! So the kids and I headed over there Saturday. My favorite truck wasn’t there this month but I did have a delicious plate of Hawaiian Pulled Pork Fries and something called a Redneck Taco.

The redneck taco? Honestly, I ordered it just for the name and now I can’t stop thinking about it.

It was cornbread with rice, brisket, sausage, beans, and nacho cheese on top.

It was ridiculous and amazing and I’ll be looking for that truck next month.

Heeeey guys! Happy Monday!

How was the weekend?

I discovered that Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is now on Netflix and umm, it changed my life. You guys. No one told me that it’s a musical series.

A musical!

Anyway, it’s really good and I’m not gonna tell you how many episodes I watched while I was catching up on some work that I’m waaaay behind on.
