black friday...


OK I'm gonna be honest with you {very honest}... I've never done the whole black Friday thing.  Have you? Wait in long lines, wake up early, read where the deals are... That just never excited me. Sometimes I wish I did it, but it's not in me to fight the parking lots and all the deal crazed people at the malls. Crazy I tell you! I would rather stay in my cozy bed and relax. I do enjoy hearing about all the craziness that takes place the day of the deals... Man gets trampled at entrance, Lady uses pepper spray to get her sweater...  The stories are endless. Too funny! I would rather stay out of those people way... Stay local and support small businesses. Stop by and say, HI today! We would love to see you on this fabulous black Friday!

keep calm and gobble on...

 With less than a week before Thanksgiving, here are a few tips to get you closer to a fabulous holiday!

  • Confirm the number of guests who will be attending.
  • Work on your shopping lists. Divide the list into two parts: (1) items that can be purchased immediately, and (2) items that need to be bought the day before Thanksgiving. Don't forget to pick up a few special treats for the kids! 
  • Select a wine(s). Caterers recommend providing a half bottle for each guest.
  • Save food containers and paper bags for packing up leftovers and handing them out to guests on their way out.
  • Stop by the rustic rooster for all of your holiday decorating needs!

countdown to thanksgiving...

The holidays are creeping up on us and the calendar is already filling up with party invites. It seems almost impossible to live in the moment. Although there is a part of me that wants to just take it easy and enjoy this time of year, there are things that need to be done. By now you should have a good idea of what you are doing this Thanksgiving. If you are hosting, you need to start planning now, if you haven’t already started. Here's a short checklist of things that will get you started on the road to a successful and less-stressful Thanksgiving:

  • Confirm your guest list and send out those invites!
  • Put together your meal plan. Do you have enough space in your oven for more than one item? Do you need multiple stove-top burners at the same time? Plan accordingly.
  • Order or purchase your turkey. Make sure the turkey is going to fit in your oven.
  • Order flowers in advance so that you have the perfect arrangement.
  • Check your seating. Do you need to rent or borrow a table and chairs?
  • Take inventory of your equipment to ensure that you have enough for all of your guests (dinnerware, silverware, serving items, linens, etc.)

baked with love

Good morning everyone!  
 As promised I wanted to share a super easy and fun recipe for making {heart} donuts. No joke my little ones made them with me... Easy!  I kept seeing all these blogger mommy's making donuts and then pinterest really did it for me... Sent me over the edge!   This blog {here} helped me make my donuts. No joke I made these donuts in approximately 10ish minutes.

Step 1: 
Purchase the Pillsbury Grands, Homestyle buttermilk biscuits. 
{makes 8 donuts and 8 donut holes}

Step 2: 
Gather your mini cookie cutters {or anything that is round or fun}... I went with a mini heart cookie cutter. How cute would it be to use mini Christmas trees, stars, butterflies, flowers or even mini alphabet letters... The sky's the limit! Fun!  

Step 3: 
Pop open the package and lay all 8 biscuits out on a chopping block... Get an extra plate out so when you cut your centers out you can save them for making donut holes. Perfect bites for the dieter {portion control}!

Step 4: 
Fill a pan or a pot 1/2 up with Vegetable Oil turn it on Medium heat... Wait till you see the oil start to bubble. Then put approximately 3 to 4 donuts in the pan/pot. Turn them all over when they turn golden brown. Watch closely because this process goes very fast. 

{please note: I took this picture from {here}}

 Step 5: 
Put the donuts in a pan on a paper towel to let the oil drain off... Plus, let them cool down. Once you have done that...

Step 6:
Dip the donuts in a bowl of melted butter... Let the butter drip off. Coat the entire donut.

Step 7:
Dip the buttered donut in a bowl of sugar and cinnamon  

All done and ready to gobble up! 

No joke I could have eaten all these donuts up... Aren't they adorable! I had to package the extras up and hand deliver them to family and friends. 
They're amazing... Go make them. You'll thank me later!

baby it's cold outside... burrrr

{Pumpkin Cookies}

Yield: about 3 dozen cookies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12-15 minutes per batch



2 1/2 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon
homemade pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 cup canned pure pumpkin puree
1 large egg
1 teaspoon
pure vanilla extract
For the Glaze1 cup confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons Vanilla Natural Bliss Creamer OR 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 teaspoon
pure vanilla extract (see note below)


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, homemade pumpkin pie spice, and salt; set aside.
3. In the bowl of stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla to butter mixture. Beat on medium speed until fully incorporated and creamy. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Using a medium cookie scoop (1 1/2 tablespoons), drop dough onto prepared cookie sheets. Spray the bottom of a glass with nonstick cooking spray and ever so slightly, flatten the tops of the cookies.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on pan for a few minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
5. To Make the Glaze: Combine confectioners' sugar, creamer OR milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Add milk as needed, to achieve glaze consistency.
6. Place a piece of parchment or wax paper on your work surface and place a wire rack on top of the paper. Dip the top of each cookie into the glaze and place the cookie onto the wire rack allowing the glaze to drizzle down the sides of the cookie. Allow glaze to firm up before serving.

:: Notes ::

- If you are using milk for the glaze, I would suggest bumping up the amount of vanilla extract to 1 teaspoon.
- These cookies are best served the day they are made. However, if storing them, I recommend keeping them at room temperature. Do not place them in an airtight container as it could cause the cookies to become too soft and slightly sticky.
