This Pumpkin Spiced Buttermilk Layer Cake with Maple Buttercream is a perfect recipe for Thanksgiving or Christmas! #dessert

I’ve never been very good at creating a work/life balance. It was easy when I worked for someone else. Every week, 40 hours were spent mostly sitting in front of a desk with breaks for lunch and meetings. Now that I work for myself, my weekdays and weekends are very similar. My mornings and evenings are very similar. I space out the work, but it’s always there.

This one pot chicken and bacon orzo soup from Savory Simple is perfect for chilly days or when you just need a warm bowl of comfort food.  #Soup #Autumn #Recipe www.savorysimple.net

I’ve decided to judge how productive my days are based on how many times I have to run the dishwasher. It’s a running joke between Jeff and I because when I go out of town for a week, he might run the machine one time. But in my day to day life, I’m using it at least once per day even though I wash many dishes by hand. And I hate doing dishes. But they’re a clear indicator of whether I’ve been slacking or getting things done.

Strawberry Macadamia Nut Milk is a healthy, sweet drink that can be enjoyed on its own or used as the base for a smoothie. #Vegan #Paleo #DairyFree

I love making nut milks from scratch. It’s not very time consuming or expensive to make and the flavor is, in my opinion, far superior to anything sold at the grocery store. There are no weird preservatives or stabilizers. It’s a nice, unprocessed drink that can be used as a base for smoothies or in place or regular milk in baked goods or coffee drinks.

This autumn Spiced Octoberfest Beer Bread recipe is so easy to make! No mixer or kneading required. www.savorysimple.net

I’m writing a cookbook. I’ve only just begun the process and I’m already feeling very overwhelmed. But I also feel excited and validated. I feel as though everything I have been working for over the past few years is finally coming together. I feel like I made the right choices. This book is going to be 12 months of blood, sweat and tears. I’m going to put everything I have into it.

Salted Olive Oil Brownies from Savory Simple are a decadent, sweet and salty chocolate treat. They're some of the best brownies you'll ever taste.

Do you have a favorite month? October is definitely one of my top picks. It’s far from perfect since the threat of winter and darkness always looms. But October by itself is lovely; temperatures start to cool and the leaves begin changing color. I’m enjoying the milder temperatures. I’ve worn my cherished Frye boots for the past 2 weeks and will be venturing to an orchid to pick apples this weekend. I might be lamenting the loss of light, but there’s no denying my love for October.
