For those of you that follow me on social media, you’ve probably seen an Instagram story, or caught a Facebook Live recently, where I’ve been sharing all about the “Fixer Upper” I purchased with my boyfriend Kurt!

We did all of the demo ourselves and then spent the last month sitting around waiting for permits to be approved by the city of San Diego. Magically this week, it happened! The permits were approved and that means the remodel can begin. This definitely called for an impromptu celebration!

I grabbed a bottle of Tropicana Lemonade and made a super simple cocktail. Simple, but so delicious and definitely going in my happy hour regular rotation!

Pumpkin Toast is the fall version of Avocado Toast, it's easy to make with a variety of toppings, from sweet to savory, perfect for breakfast or a snack!

With the first day of fall coming up on Friday, I decided it was time to find as many new ways to eat pumpkin as possible!

As the worlds biggest fan of avocado, I could not love avocado toast anymore, but during the fall and winter months when avocados are harder to find, I felt like avocado toast needed a suitable substitute and pumpkin toast is where it’s at!

Loaded with fiber, potassium and vitamin C, pumpkin is great for heart health and boosting your immune system! I topped my pumpkin toast 7 ways, some sweet, some savory, some perfect for breakfast, others great as a sweet snack and all of them perfect for serving friends and family at all of your fall and winter parties!

Garlic knots, the delicious creation that twists up pizza dough and smothers it in garlic butter, creating one of the most delicious snacks ever!

When I lived downtown San Diego, I used to frequent a little pizza shop that sold garlic knots in a bag by the half dozen. My friends would order pizza slices at said pizza shop, I would order a dozen garlic knots and literally just eat them out of the bag, like the civilized food blogger I am 😉

Needless to say, I’ve had a long standing love affair with garlic knots and today I made them even better by filling them with cheese and smothering them in buffalo sauce, creating Buffalo Cheesy Garlic Knots, also know as THE MOST DELICIOUS SNACK EVER!
