Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I shared yesterday in a blog post that I’m taking a blog vacation for the rest of the year. I’m looking forward to lots of sleep, plenty of delicious foods (that I won’t be photographing), and as many walks outside as I can squeeze into the days.

You’ll still hear from me on the weekends with the newsletter though. And if you have questions on a recipe, please leave comments on the recipe post, so that I can help you out when possible.

ON THE BLOGS THIS WEEK: Stuffed French bread with a savory combination of sausage, eggs, and cheese creates a hearty breakfast or brunch. Hollowed-out French bread is the perfect vessel to hold warm, seasoned sausage, creamy eggs, and gooey cheese.

Crisp-tender broccoli florets, charred to perfection, complement the caramelized sweetness of roasted sweet potatoes. Roasted Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes offer a delightful medley of textures and tastes, creating a delicious side dish.

Stuffed Poblano Peppers hold a savory filling of seasoned ground beef, rice, onion, and bell peppers. Topped with a zesty sauce and melting cheese, each bite delivers smokiness and a hint of heat.

The velvety sweetness of chocolate mingles with the nutty goodness of walnuts in these Chocolate Walnut Cookies.

Thick and soft-baked, chewy Molasses Crinkle Cookies are full of gingery, brown sugar, and molasses flavor.

Light, buttery, almond-flavored shortbread thumbprint cookies have been the most requested cookie I make for almost as long as I can remember. My friend Augusta gave me this recipe years ago and it became a forever favorite at first bite.

What I’m CRAVING: I’ve had Rebecca’s Sushi Bake on my must-make list for far too long. I’m planning to make it next week and I can hardly wait!

My FAVORITE THINGS this week are these bath salts. The eucalyptus and spearmint fragrance is fantastic and the salts are the perfect way to relax at the end of the day. I just reordered them last week and realized that I’ve been using them for several years now.

What I’m WATCHING: Four Christmases. I still laugh every time I watch this movie. I love non-traditional Christmas movies so much, as evidenced by our 26-year tradition of watching The Ref every single year. Do you have a favorite Christmas movie?

What I’m READING: The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. Per my son’s suggestion, I’m working my way through the series again, this time in chronological order. I haven’t read these books in at least 20 years and I’m enjoying this one.

“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!” 2 Corinthians 9:15 NASB

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
