Gifts for Littles

Everyone likes buying gifts for kids because of the joy on their faces when they open something they love. This year's list is for smaller kids (3-7ish) and based on toys and games that Amalia has and loves and the things on her personal wish list. Plus a few other things that I've found on other lists and around the internet this holiday season.

Harvest Salad

With Thanksgiving just four days away, we are doing our last-minute planning and shopping for the big day. I wanted to share the salad we plan to serve alongside our turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. This is a great one because it's full of fall flavors but packs a nutritional punch as a bonus. It's tangy, sweet, savory, crunchy, and makes the perfect side dish for dinner or works well on its own with some added protein as a full lunch or dinner meal.

15+ Gifts for Guys

The men's gift guide... my biggest challenge every holiday season and always one of my favorite guides. This year, I got some help from Anel and our friend Jesse, two men with great taste, who gave their input and final approval on the list. Whether you're shopping for your dad, father-in-law, husband, brother, or pal, there should be a little something on this list for everyone.


Butternut Squash, Spinach & Sausage Gnocchi

To be honest, the recipe did not come out looking very pretty which is why we covered it in extra sage and basil for this photo. But it tastes a lot better than it looks! Creamy, salty, a little sweet, savory, hearty. And it has your daily dose of greens with the spinach cooked into the dish.
