I've been teasing you with this recipe for almost a month now if you follow me on social media, and I really do apologize for that! Life, work, and everything else has been crazy and holiday recipes have been taking over my life. Which don't get me wrong...I love me some holiday recipes, but we also need some healthy balance in between the cookies, wine, and homemade doo-dads! Enter sweet potato and chickpea curry soup...here to fill your bellies with nothing but the good stuff, all the while being super tasty too!

I don't know about you, but I am in full holiday mode over here. Christmas music is on repeat and holiday touches are being added to the house and to all of my recipes! I love this time of year so much that I literally can't handle my excitement for this season! To me breakfast is the most important meal of the day all year long, but especially during the holidays! Starting with my morning cup of joe, to the plate that is in front of me, I need all the fuel to get me through holiday shopping, decking the halls, and keeping up with normal life at the same time (hello mom life)! My Easy Sugar Cookie French Toast is the perfect breakfast to make all season long and goes perfect with your favorite coffee of choice!

With the holidays in full swing that means family and friends will filling up your guest rooms and there will be more than the usual mouths to feed! To me, besides the main course at dinner, breakfast is the next most important meal to prepare for all of your loved ones! It sets the tone for the rest of the day and keeps everyone's bellies full and happy until it's time for the next meal to roll around. With all of the hustle, bustle, and added chaos to your household, any breakfast that is easy to whip up is a winner in my book! My salsa verde egg, sausage, and potato breakfast enchiladas are so delicious and can feed all of your friends and family with no problem!
It's December which means bring on everything holiday! Christmas music on repeat all day everyday, holiday baking, and cozy nights by the tree are just a few of my favorite things about this time of year. I feel like I turn back into a kid as soon as tree goes up, which this year was before Thanksgiving (because I was feeling it..) and I still love Christmas time as much now as when I was a little girl! I'm so excited to start new traditions with Parks and now that he is two, he is really starting to get into Christmas as much as his mama, which totally makes my heart sing. Christmas cookies and cocktails are two of my favorite holiday indulgences and I've got the perfect pairing for you to try this year! My matcha vanilla bean shortbread cookies paired with a boozy matcha white hot chocolate will put you in the holiday spirit immediately!
For the past two weeks I have been battling one heck of a cold. I'm on the tale end of it now, but there is still a tinge of congestion going on and now Parks kind of has the same thing. I guess it's just the time of year, but I usually pride myself on being someone who doesn't get sick very often! I guess that is what I get for thinking that, because this one has been a doozy. One thing that is for sure whenever I am under the weather, a big bowl of pho is always what I crave and almost always makes me feel better instantly! My homemade chicken pho is easy enough to whip up any day of the week and is sure to cure all of your sniffles!
