Happy Halloween!

Adam, Grayson and I are heading to Yosemite for the weekend, but before we go I wanted to post this giveaway for you guys! Now, y’all know how much I adore my coffee. Always have, always will. We have a Nespresso machine, a French press and a Keurig and I just love all three for different reasons. My go-to in the morning is coffee in the Keurig with a BIG splash of Dunkin’ Donuts creamer. I love to make my coffee, pour it into a large travel mug and then go get Grayson up, coffee in hand. New moms definitely cannot have too much.

I also love making tea in the Keurig throughout the day…which is why I was so excited to see Honest Tea in K-cup form! How cool is it to have fresh brewed iced green tea in under a minute?? I usually always have a big pitcher of iced tea in my fridge at all times, so this is perfect for us.

Today I’m giving away one brand new Keurig 2.0 machine and two packs of new Honest Tea K-Cups to a lucky reader! I just know someone will love this machine as much as I do. Plus, it looks just beautiful in the kitchen to boot.

Maple Cinnamon Glazed Root Vegetables

maple root veggies-9567

Roasted root veggies might be one of my favorite side-dishes ever. Nothing says Fall more than a roast chicken and roasted root vegetables, in my opinion. During this season, I make this dish, or some variation of it, every single week. I make big batches because I’m more than happy to eat leftovers for lunches and they keep so nicely in the fridge. I’d rather eat warm roasted vegetables than a cold salad any day of the week.

There’s tons of different recipes for root vegetables, but this particular one is special due to the glaze! Y’all, it’s ALL about the glaze. Sweet pure maple syrup is combined with butter, cinnamon and a pinch of salt and drizzled all over the hot veggies straight out of the oven. This will be a dish that folks ask for seconds of, for sure. I had to literally force myself to set down my fork. I can’t think of a better Thanksgiving side-dish other than hot Parker House rolls that would beat these roasted root vegetables. And yes, Halloween is Friday but my mind is already set on Thanksgiving.
