Welcome to the weekend, my mates! I’m curled up on the sofa at my sister’s cabin this morning as I ship this e mail. The snowy view out the window is making me very grateful for indoor heating, fuzzy heat socks, and comfy blankets.
ON THE BLOGS THIS WEEK: With a velvety broth loaded with the goodness of corn, potatoes, and bell peppers, this tacky, Creamy Vegetable Soup is one heck of a hearty meal.
Hearty noodles function the proper backdrop for barely candy cabbage and savory bacon on this easy Cabbage Spaghetti. That is SO good, I ate it three days in a row. After which, I made it once more.
The sweetness of caramelized onions offers conventional hummus a rare improve with this Caramelized Onion Hummus.
There’s loads of spicy kick on this easy-to-make Canned Tomato Salsa. It simply might need you saying goodbye to store-bought varieties perpetually. (And nobody is extra shocked that I’m writing that than I’m!)
Loaded with pecan items and loads of coconut taste, these Coconut Pecan Cookies are completely chewy with simply the correct amount of crunch.
These Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies are gentle, chewy cookies stuffed with tart cranberries and infused with candy oranges and aromatic cardamom.
Contemporary Lemon Sorbet is a light and refreshing treat that is a terrific addition to any meal. At first look, a scoop of sorbet is unlikely to seize your consideration and impress. Nonetheless, at first style, you’re sure to be received over instantly.
What I’m CRAVING: There aren’t many cookies that I crave the best way I crave my good friend Christi’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.

My FAVORITE THING this week is that this travel toiletry bag. The inside is waterproof, so it wipes clear simply. The compartments are so properly thought out that after utilizing it for nearly 3 years now, I’ve no complaints in any respect. I prefer it much more now than I did after I first began utilizing it. And it will get bonus factors for the hook that lets you hold it on a towel rack or hook for tremendous easy accessibility to all the things.
What I’m READING: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. This was a special type of learn for me and it took me fairly some time to get into it. A number of folks really useful this guide, so I wished to get by it. But when I’m being sincere, I used to be properly over midway by this guide earlier than it stopped annoying me.
Usually, that might be sufficient to stop me from recommending it right here. HOWEVER, the ending of this guide is so significantly better than the start. I discovered that I didn’t need to set the guide down by the point the top was in sight. It’s an attention-grabbing story and the ending is heartwarming. I’m glad I learn it.
What I’m LISTENING to: Hymns That Are Important To Us by Joey & Rory. In case you take pleasure in conventional Christian hymns, you’re more likely to love this album. This duo is a more moderen one for me and I’ve actually been having fun with their music. Whereas their story is unhappy, their love for one another and for the Lord comes by clearly of their music.
