The Perfect Christmas Breakfast

Isn't having family around for the holidays just the best?!

The get togethers, the laughs, the games, and the FOOD. We love it all! 

We know a HUGE part of entertaining, especially around this time of year, involves food, and making sure any guests you have staying with you are well fed. Breakfast can often be the most hectic meal to have prepared, since it needs to be ready early in the morning. 

And sometimes that means the cook doesn't get to sit around the table and eat with everyone because they're slaving away in the kitchen...

This Baked French Toast is the perfect meal to serve a lot of people, while allowing everyone to be at the table together. You prepare everything the night before, and then just pop it in the oven in the morning!

 There are a ton of Baked French Toast recipes out there, and we've tried a lot of them, but this one takes the prize!

Nutty Christmas :)

We are officially in full blown Christmas mode. The decorations are up, and we're already starting to knock out a lot of our Christmas gifts. I don't know about you, but sometimes those random gifts we need to get are the hardest. For teachers, coworkers, clients, etc., you want to give them something nice, but also don't want to break the bank! This year we've got you covered with the perfect gift... It's super easy, inexpensive, and an awesome gift for almost anyone!

These delicious cinnamon sugar almonds are sure to please, and can be made ahead of time for gifting. Below is the recipe and instructions on how to make them :)

Most DELICIOUS and HEALTHY Salad Dressing…Ever :)

Our mom and grandma have been famous for their salads for as long as we can remember.

 It's all about the dressing...and today, we're sharing the recipe! It's SO simple and easy, not to mention completely healthy! Every time we serve this salad we get tons of compliments.

All you need is olive oil, seasoned rice vinegar, Mrs. Dash seasoning (you can either use original or table blend), and half of a lemon, or a whole lemon if you're making a larger salad.

Really, the options are endless for what you're putting in the salad. This dressing tastes great with any combination of vegetables or fruit. For this one we used tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, and feta cheese. It's also great with cucumbers, green onions, or really anything! One of our favorite ways to use this dressing is to make the salad with apples, feta cheese, and candied pecans! When making the salad with fruit, we like to use the table blend Mrs. Dash, but the original works great too!

And here's a little video tutorial of how to do the dressing. There are no measurements, just drizzle and sprinkle everything on. Don't forget to squeeze in your lemon juice! So delish :)

Enjoy :)

Not Your Average Pumpkin Cookie

Paige here…I'll be writing this post so I can do a little bragging about Regan's major cooking/baking skills. They are seriously on point. Always! 

She'll be responsible for most of the delicious recipes we'll post on here from time to time....most, as in I have one :) Sad, I know, but my one recipe is pretty amazing ;) Coming soon!! 

For our first recipe we're going super cliche this October and sharing, you guessed it, our favorite pumpkin recipe! I know the internet is overloaded with pumpkin everything this time of year, but these cookies are seriously the bomb dot com. If you're going to make ONE pumpkin recipe, it needs to be these!

Basically all I'm good for…
