This time of year I just can’t get enough sweets. If you’re looking for a recipe to make this holiday season, try our fleur de sel caramel brownies. The brownies are gooey and rich, and the salted caramel topping is the perfect balance of salty and sweet. This is one of our most popular recipes on the blog, and rightly so. Recipe link in bio!
@fountainonlocust is truly a magical place and one of the best happy hour deals in town. Start with a classic cocktail and the symphony platter: melted mozzarella cheese on grilled garlic bread strips topped with house-made pesto. And of course, you can’t leave until you’ve had a signature ice cream martini. Check them out before seeing a show in the @grandcenterartsdistrict !
Have you started binge watching Christmas movies yet? What’s your favorite? Mine: The Muppet Christmas Carol. Neil’s: Die Hard.⁣ ⁣ Looking for a treat to go with your flick? I made these double chocolate chunk peppermint cookies last year and they were a hit!

Our family oohed and ahhed as we set out this stunning wine on the Thanksgiving table. The artwork on the label of this @duboeufwines Beaujolais Nouveau is by @jessica_hitchcock , a local St. Louis artist, who we had the pleasure of meeting this week. If you aren’t familiar with her work, click over to her bio and check it out! You can find this wine featuring her art at @costcos across the country!

Our favorite food day is coming. It’s less than a week away, and we’ve been prepping! Neil’s been making trial runs of Thanksgiving food for weeks now. (Why just make it one day out of the year? Thanksgiving food is the best!) ⁣ ⁣ Still figuring out sides for Turkey Day? We got your back. Check out this dish: sautéed brussels sprouts with bacon, lemon, and parmesan. It’s a super easy side to make and a nice savory green addition to your feast! Recipe link in bio.

It’s been a busy few weeks over here, and I can’t believe the holidays are so rapidly approaching! This recipe is super easy to make and is found in our recipe index: salted caramel brownie pie. That’s right, I baked a brownie inside pie crust, then topped it with salted caramel, toasted pecans, whipped cream... and it was amazing!! If you don’t tell anyone, I’ll let you in on the secret to this recipe: you can use a boxed brownie mix! Shhhh! Okay go enjoy and drizzle that magic salted caramel sauce on everything in sight. ✨
Happy Sunday! We’re meal planning for the week and this turkey chili is on our menu for tomorrow (with leftovers planned Tuesday).

We are so lucky to have @nathanielreidbakery in Kirkwood! It’s one of our favorite places in St. Louis.

How do you feel about cheesecake? I’m not a huge fan, but incorporating ingredients like ricotta and greek yogurt make the filling lighter and way more delicious, in my opinion! Neil, on the other hand, will eat any kind of cheesecake- one of his favorite desserts. ⁣ These adorable mini pumpkin cheesecakes are more my style, and the crust couldn’t be easier to make! Just place a gingersnap cookie in each muffin tin and you’re set. ⁣ ⁣ We just put this recipe link in our profile, so head on over to the blog and enjoy!
Our slow cooker chicken tikka masala is now even easier to make and bursting with flavor. It’s one of those recipes you can throw together at 5:00am still half-asleep and it will turn out fabulous when you’re ready for dinner. Find it in our recipe index!
