Guess what? I have never cooked okra. Which means this Lentil Okra Curry recipe looked extra fun to give a try. Not only was it extra fun by learning how to cook okra, it was incredibly delicious. Full of lentils, tomatoes, curry and other spices, I will be making this again and soon!

fall must haves

1. This Pink Druzi Wool blanket is fantastic and needs to be on my couch.

2. I secretly hope that all my vintage furniture styled looks like this vanity.

3. If someone doesn’t by me this leather handhold duffel bag for Christmas, I’ll cry.

4. Come Friday, I’ll be drinking an Apple Cider Moscow Mule. Facts.

It makes sense to start baking with pumpkin, I mean . . . it is October. What better way to jump in than this simple Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe? I had most all ingredients on hand and just needed a can of organic pumpkin puree. 23 minutes later, I was nomming on my fresh pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies while the local squirrels were nomming on my porch pumpkins. At least my cookies tasted better.

A few weekends ago my favorite adventure friend and I went to an apple orchard near the foothills. The afternoon was full of pumpkin beer, apples and many a photo opportunity. The first set of photos are snaps of mine and the second set are Colleen’s. It’s fun to see our different interpretations of the afternoon in our final set of photos!

Oh, and that wagon wheel gate? Best orchard gate ever.

Yum. Yum. Yum. This. Soup.

Kicking fall into gear with this Sweet Potato Sriracha Noodle Soup was the best idea ever. The veggie broth is the perfect mix of sriracha, garlic, ginger and lime juice. Add in the sweet potatoes, soba noodles and toppings and you have yourself a pho worthy rival. AND best part? It is ready in 30ish minutes and you don’t have to sit in a restaurant with bad elevator music and art. Just you and this awesome soup. Thank me next week when you give it a go.
