Happy Hour: Apple Cider Moscow Mule

This year, I was so ready for fall to start.  Mostly because I was excited to get married and at the same time really excited for the wedding planning to be over.
I cannot wait to spend the weekends binge watching Netflix shows, crafting, knitting and cooking.

When I reread that, I realize that I sound like the oldest person ever, but I don't really care.

In fact, I kind of like being older.  I like that I've moved beyond my shots-with-chasers days and now I can have a proper drink.  In a real glass - made of glass.  Growing up is not all bad, I promise.

You Only Need These 6 Pumpkin Recipes This Season

It's true.  You make these 6 recipes with that big, orange gourd and you'll be totally set.

Although I wouldn't blame you if you tapped into your inner mixologist and created a fall, pumpkin cocktail too.  But who would blame you for that?

1. Pumpkin Soup with Cranberry Apple Relish (to bring in all the fall flavors!).

2. Pumpkin Pie (it has to be just has to).

Mushroom Flavored Pasta

See that cat back there in the picture?  His name is Bill.  Bill E. Goat to be precise.  My sister and I took him to the vet the first time so we got to pick his name.

Everyone else calls him Bucky.

Whatever you want to call him, he's a good cat.  And by good, I mean he hangs around a lot hoping that you give him some food.
By cat standards, that's being 'nice.'

But I can't really blame him.  He gets absolutely zero variety in his diet.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all exactly the same.  The only thing special are his treats each night, which are actually just 4 or 5 pieces of a different type of kibble.

Humans have tons of variety in our diets.  We can even have different flavored pasta if we want.  I rarely eat the same thing for 2 meals in a week.  If I were a cat, I'd probably beg too.

Happy Hour: The Brindle

Hey guys!  Guess what?!  Today, Call Me Fudge turns 3!

This is my 483rd post and I'd like to be able to say that a lot has changed around these parts, but in all honesty, it really hasn't.
I still ramble about nothing.  I still share recipes with you.  I still sometimes take blurry, dark, poorly composed photos (like these!).  Most importantly, I am still grateful for every single person that stops by to read my humble words.

Thank you for your support for the past 3 years - I'll keep writing if you keep coming :)

Layered Taco Dip

Hey guys, guess what?!

I'm married!

That's a really weird thought.  After being someone's girlfriend for almost 10 years, 'wife' might be a hard word to get out for a while.

Austin and I have lived together for years already.  We literally graduated from college together...oh, and high school.  I'd say we know each other pretty well.
I've always wondered what it's like for people who get married so soon after meeting.  Or for people who don't live together first.  They probably have to figure everything out that first night or week or month.

I'm glad I don't have to do that right now.  The wedding was stressful enough :)

For example, I know that Austin hates olives and refried beans.  I also know that he's allergic to avocados.  So, I know that this app is not going to be his favorite.

Doesn't mean I can't make it anyway - so glad we're already past that stage of doing everything for each other ;)
