I hope you’re having a fantastic second weekend of December! What do your weekend plans look like? Shopping? Baking?

I’m planning on some serious (online) shopping and whipping up at least a couple of recipes today! Honestly after the crazy week we’ve had with Joseph being sick and being sleep deprived for days on end, I’m looking forward to a low key day at home with no commitments and nothing that MUST be done.

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!
