Happy November to you!

I don’t even know where this year has gone… I feel like I was pregnant with Isabelle approximately one million years ago at this point. But! Satellite radio started Christmas music on Thursday, and I am totally not ashamed to admit that I was rocking it yesterday. I’m ready.

Shall we take bets on how early Joseph and Dominic will wake up tomorrow morning? The morning after changing the clocks is always the WORST. Gah. On the bright side, however, it will be nice to have daylight outside before 8:30am… makes me not want to get out of bed in the morning!

What are you up to this weekend??

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!

Cannot WAIT to make this easy skillet lasagna!

I adore tacos, but I’ve never done baked tacos… they look amazing! PLUS… homemade taco sauce, what?!

OMG, I am totally making homemade spaghettios for the boys!

Salted Maple Pecan Pie sounds like an amazing riff on traditional pecan pie (and no corn syrup is used!).

Whoa, these snack bars with Rice Chex, pretzels, M&Ms and a peanut butter-marshmallow sauce must be total heaven.

Have a delicious weekend!
