November Favourites

November is the last full month of fall, and that means winter is fast approaching. Accordingly, my November favourites seem to have a theme: warm and cozy. I think I spent more time cozied up with a cup of tea than anything else this month. Turtleneck Sweaters: I’m pretty sure the only kinds of tops…

Here are some more oatmeal recipes to kickstart a chilly day. Pumpkin Pie 1/4 cup pumpkin puree 1/2 tsp vanilla 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1 tbsp…
