Kozy Shack Pudding Love

Disclosure: This article is sponsored by Kozy Shack, but the opinions expressed are all my own. Growing up, dinner always felt a little extra special when Mom made a dessert.

A Pre-Holiday Brunch

One of  my favorite parties to host any time of the year is a brunch soiree. That goes double for during the holidays. And for me, the holidays start in November!

Last weekend I hosted a little pre-holiday brunch for a few of my favorite people. Since we had a small group, we kept things simple. Simple, yet so delicious. My husband made his famous breakfast casserole, while...
