Spice It Up this Fall!

Cool weather is an automatic reason for warm, spicy food with tons of flavor! We headed to the pantry to see what recipe we could cure our spicy craving! We turned to Mighty Spice Express Cookbook by John Gregory Smith for this yummy soup, Vietnamese Bun Cha!

Our Pantry is always changing! Lots of new items are pouring in for the season. We love a classic cottage inspired vignette, complete with vintage blue mason jars, antique scales, and flying pigs!

Even better than flying pigs? Our pig-inspired salt & pepper shakers! You can kick up any table with a cute pair of these piglets. A dish rack makes for a darling display paired with stacks of plates against our aged wood cabinets in the Pantry.

We love a classic white or ivory dish! They are so versatile and make all of the colors in your Fall inspired dishes pop!

We weren't kidding about those big soup bowls! Double handles and a saucer mean business. We love how quaint, yet sturdy, these soup bowls are!

Snack on These!

Cookies are one of the best snacks; sweet, portable, and extra delicious over a scoop of ice cream! We took another one of our Pantry favorites, Breakfast, Lunch, & Tea by Rose Carrarini and scoured the trendy pages for a yummy cookie recipe that is as unique as it is delicious. We came across these Almond, Cinnamon, & Meringue Biscuits and were hooked. Delicious over warm vanilla ice cream, no? IMG_0099 copyIMG_0106 copyCookieBiscuits
