Homemade Beef Stew + Biscuits

Friday is here, friends and the first day of fall is just a week away, September 22 to be exact, which also happens to be my birthday (yay!). Even though this week has been a bit of a heat wave, I had all of the fixings to make beef stew and its the perfect dish to cook on a Friday and freeze for a later time. But tonight we snuggled up, went through our DVR and enjoyed some tasty stew and biscuits. Its a simple and easy recipe and can be tweaked to everyone's liking. Here's what you'll need:

Egg White Breakfast Muffins

Hey there W+A friends. What a beautiful weekend we had here on the Island. Unfortunately our mom and daughter trip to Savannah was cut short this week due to hurricane Irma. It was a bummer, but I sure am happy my mom and I got back to New York safe and sound and were definitely thinking about all of our friends, family and those down South getting hit by this crazy hurricane.

I love prepping breakfast stuff since cooking in the morning doesn't always fit into my schedule. For anyone who has tried the egg white bites from

Fall + Homemade Sausage Bread

Welcome September! This month is one of my favorites not only because it is my birthday month, but September nights tend to get cooler and you can still catch a couple of warm days in between the summer/fall transition. September gets us excited for our favorite season and all of the seasonal foods that start to show up at our local grocery stores. I really enjoying getting in the kitchen and using our slow cooker for soups, stews and chili. This year I plan on making some of our oldies, but am looking forward to trying my hand at some new recipes I've been holding onto since last season.

Every holiday my father-in-law makes one of my favorite appetizers...sausage bread. Its the one indulgent holiday treat I look forward to and will never turn down. Last weekend we were invited to our friend's home for a Labor Day BBQ. I figured I could make a fun veggie platter or 7-layer dip, but I decided to try my hand at my father-in-law's infamous sausage bread recipe. Here's eve…
