Happy Saturday to you!

It’s cool and rainy here this weekend, and I’m all about the cozy weather. Give me a big blanket and a mug of hot chocolate 😊

I shared a poll in the BEB Facebook group yesterday and would love your input… I am getting an early start on my gift guides this year and want to know which ones you find most helpful. In the past, I’ve published ones for kitchen/cooking/baking/food, the home, kids, for him, for her, beauty, and stocking stuffers. Let me know in the comments which ones you use and look forward to!

What I Bookmarked This Week

Loving these dark chocolate cranberry blondies! I’ve been making my husband trail mix that includes dried cranberries and dark chocolate, and I always sneak a little handful of the combo when I make it. Such a great pair of flavors!

My kids would LOVE these >> Crispy Baked Cheeseburger Tacos with House Sauce

The tombstones totally make these Halloween dirt cups!

I absolutely need to make this slow cooker fire-roasted brisket chili.

Such a perfect fall dessert (or breakfast! 😉) >> Salted Bourbon Apple Crumble Coffee Cake

Have a delicious weekend!
