Happy Saturday, friends!

I hope that this week treated you well; it felt super fast and incredibly long all at once for me. Looking forward to a couple of days to relax and hang out.

What are you doing this weekend? Any fun baking or cooking plans?

Pumpkin Pancakes – These pumpkin pancakes are light, fluffy, and the perfect way to ring in the fall season. Serve them for breakfast, brunch, or even dessert! 

Ham and Split Pea Soup – Hearty and smoky with just a hint of sweetness, this Ham and Split Pea Soup is the perfect meal for a chilly day.

S’mores Whoopie Pies – S’mores whoopie pies feature soft graham cookies sandwiched around a layer of chocolate ganache and a creamy marshmallow filling. No campfire required! You’ll enjoy these year-round!

What I Bookmarked This Week

I made these oven-baked chicken drumsticks for dinner this week; they were a huge hit! And you can’t beat a 5-minute prep time. I served them with buttermilk biscuits and roasted vegetables.

I’m dying to try these seven-layer rocky road magic bars; such a great spin on a classic!

Definitely planning to have these for breakfast multiple times this season >> Cinnamon Knots with Coffee Icing

I could make these a meal in and of themselves >> Peppery Torn Homemade Croutons

Perfect game day snacks! >> Everything Soft Pretzel Bites with Chipotle Beer Cheese

Have a delicious weekend!
