Pesto Sausage Pizza with Mushrooms and Olives - sausage, mushrooms, and olives on top of a creamy pesto sauce, topped with monterey jack cheese!

You guys.

I didn’t think this post was going to happen this week.

Months ago I started complaining that my oven temp was off because all my cookies were turning out flat and I almost had a full on breakdown a few weeks ago when boyfriend asked for cookies for a work thing and both batches came out flat and I had to send them anyway because he didn’t tell me until the night before.

Not that I’m still upset about it or anything.

Men though.

So yeah, it finally stopped working this week. And I, of course, didn’t realize it until after I thought it had been preheating for 20 minutes and was about to put 2 sheets of veggies in for dinner.

Ugh.

Anyway, the guy came out the next day and got it heating up again but now the whole house smells like gas when I turn it on and maybe I just won’t bake anything else until I move out of here.

Hi guys, how’s the week?

You guys, my 2nd grader had his 1st semester award ceremony on Monday and I balled like a baby.

Like, I get it, honor roll is a big deal and I know every parent in the room was proud as could be but I was the only one full on sobbing in the back row.

I drowned my feelings in melted cheese and tortilla chips because what else would I do?

Spaghetti Squash Breakfast Bake - low carb breakfast idea! Perfect to make ahead for healthy breakfasts all week!

Heeeey guys, happy Friday!

I feel like I haven’t done a real post in forever.

What’s been doing on? Weekend plans?

I plan on taking the top off the Jeep and taking the husky for a long hike.

Speaking of, the husky doesn’t know how to ride in the Jeep when I have the top off. I’m forever amazed by dogs in the backs of pickup trucks because she would literally go flying out of the Jeep if I didn’t strap her in.

Husky people, is this normal? Is mine defective?

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.

Heeeey guys! Today I have a recipe that includes all my favorite things.

Smoked sausage, cheese, and more cheese! And guess what. It’s so easy and will take you no time at all!

I used the Hillshire Farm® Beef Smoked Sausage in this recipe. This smoked sausage is one thing I know my kids will never complain about – I’ve been known to just brown it up and serve it with barbecue sauce when I’m not feeling like cooking and they really love that!

But for this recipe, I browned it up with onions and garlic and then tossed in some Cajun seasoning. I used heavy cream and Parmesan cheese to make the Alfredo part of the recipe and then tossed in some cheese tortellini.
