The Children's Day Journals

Through this student teaching internship, I've realized how much I love the students' journals. I don't know if this applies to other grades but I love first grade journals!

Apple Hand Pies

I have not been great at getting new recipes up lately and I feel so bad! I really do try to get at least recipe up a week, but it's a struggle - my weekends are full of lesson planning and other course work. I am really hanging onto to this being my last week and a half of students teaching. Once I'm done, I will have much more time to spend in the kitchen and I am so excited to get some new recipes up!

Last weekend, I made these fabulous hand pies and today, I'm sharing the recipe with you! I'm typically pretty transparent about how difficult recipes are and I love sharing quick & easy recipes with you. This recipe, is not one of those recipes. The hand pies are not difficult to make but they are long to put together. That being said - the end product is so worth it! The little pies were so delicious and they were so impressive to serve to guests! I found this recipe on Oh Sweet Basil you can find the original recipe HERE.

Music for Monday: Fire Away

As I sit down to write this post, all I can think is when can I share Christmas music? I've been listening to Christmas music since early November - maybe even the end of October! And I am so ready to share all of favorite with you! I think I'll wait for December before I break out the Christmas music though! For today, I'm going to talk about my favorite Chris Stapleton songs!
