WINTER COMFORT FOOD

BEEF STEW + SALTY CORNBREAD RECIPES


As winter slowly comes to an end, I decided that we needed one last bowl of winter comfort before we pack away the recipes for the next season.  If you knew me, you would find that I am a bit of a soup fanatic.  Creamy, brothy, hearty, you name it and I’ve probably made/ate it!  

recipes for winter comfort food

This time I went for an old favorite that my Mom used to make when I was growing up.  It’s a pretty simple recipe that doesn’t take too much attending to and it is a crowd pleaser for the meat and potatoes kind of folks.

ADD BROTH AND 1 1/2 CUPS WATER (YOU CAN ADD MORE WATER LATER IF YOU NEED MORE LIQUID). ADD POTATOES, CARROTS, MUSHROOMS, CELERY SEEDS, AND GARLIC POWDER.

  • Here is some advice for all my SINGLE LADIES out there! 
Earlier today, I had a discussion with some younger co-workers of mine and I feel like you may relate and probably need to be told this so keep reading! One of the girls stated that she’s never had a good relationship and wanted to meet a nice guy. 
Another girl made a remark about the kind of guys she dated when she was her age and then asked me what kind of relationships I had when I was the other girl’s age and I told them the truth. I dated a very nice guy for 4 1/2 years when I was her age. At one point, I honestly thought that we would marry someday, but I was so young/still trying to figure out who I was and what I wanted my adult life to be like. Eventually we didn’t agree on the same things and grew apart. It ended well and I wish him well. Later after I had a few relationships, that also did not last and it was all for good reason. I feel like I was able to learn something from my past relationships that allowed me to be ready when I was meant to meet my husband which I have been married to for 10 years now. So the next time you look back at those past relationships and you’re looking for a nice guy, just know you’re one relationship closer to meeting the one and when you do you will know it and you will be ready for it! Just know your worth and never lower your standards because you feel like you have to to make it work. Always stay true to yourself because if you’re not, it will not be you they have fallen in love with. Like @arianagrande sings...Thank you, NEXT!

  • Lately, I’ve been reading a ton of wellness articles about the benefits of collagen powder and how women in their 30’s produce less collagen naturally which can start to effect your skin and so on. Ever since I read that. Ive been wanting to give it a try... The one I chose to put to the test is called Gym and Tonic and it’s a collagen protein powder by @tonicproducts 
I started adding 2 scoops into my blueberry banana smoothies in the mornings which has been so great because I’m guilty of never eating breakfast unless it’s brunch or brinner and I’m always rushing to get out the door and to work on time! 
Not only is it free of soy, dairy, gluten, and artificial hormones, but you can also rest assured that their ingredients have all been responsibly sourced. And here’s the bonus, it contains 18 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce on their own which combined will help with hair, skin, nail growth, joint pain, and good gut health! Winning!

So glad I finally tried it, and I will def be adding it into my daily routine. 
P.S. I’ve shared a Mango Smoothie Pop recipe in my stories/highlights that this would be perfect in x beating the summer heat with a sweet treat! 😉

  • We’re halfway through the week and I’m so stoked for the weekend! I’ve got some pretty big plans for a room makeover and I can’t wait to start sharing some of the fun details with you, but until then, head to the link in my bio named LULUS BLOG COLLAB to see my recent article on “How to Arrange Indoor Plants” for some decorative inspiration with everyday houseplants! @lulus
  • I "rose" to the occasion to take photos in the cutest chambray dress during what I'd call a 💯 heat wave.  And let me just say I was a real hot mess after it was all said and done! 🥵 🔥Speaking of things that are hot, don't forget to drop the COTTAGE15 discount with any summer purchases from @shopsugarlips 🔥
  • Weekends with no plans are the absolute best! It allows us to be more open to do things that suit our mood like brunching and catching up with friends or lounging and catching up on rest. Sometimes for me it’s a chance to listen to my inner need of spontaneity and creativity which usually results in me rearranging the furniture or making something for our home. Whatever way you choose to spend your time off, make sure you use that time for “your” needs so that your time off doesn’t “spend” you!
