One Pot Pasta and Fall Favorites

Due to some changes happening over on my main blog I am going to be posting over here for a temporary time. I had originally considered not posting at all but I am not sure how long this will be so I figured this will be my best option. I apologize for any inconvenience and I will be sure to keep you up to date when I am back to using my regular platform.

Now onto the actual post!


Last week I posted a photo on my Instagram showing this one pot Italian pasta. As promised I have the recipe (although a little later than I wanted) so here it is! With the stove top set on low you start by adding 4 cups of vegetable broth and 1 cup of chicken broth to a large stockpot. Then add 1 can of undrained diced tomatoes, 1 pack of frozen spinach (10 o.z.), about 15 mini portobello mushrooms (sliced), 1/2 a medium white onion (chopped thin), fettuccine noodles, 1 tablespoon oregano, 1 tablespoon dried basil, and 2 garlic cloves. Bring it all to a boil and mix it up good. After it is at a boil reduce heat and cover until the noodles are cooked to how you like. If the noodles are the perfect texture and there is still some broth leftover carefully drain it out. Top with fresh parmesan and dig in! It makes a ton so if you only have a couple mouths to feed you will have leftovers for days!

Originally I was going to do this post Friday so I could make it a Friday’s Favorites, but that obviously didn’t work so I decided to just do some transitioning from fall favorites. Since October and Halloween have come and gone my mind is now in full Holiday mode. I love everything about this time of the year and I think the only thing keeping me from putting out the Christmas tree is the fact that it is still 70 here ( come on Ohio). This time of the year has me thinking of all my favorite Holiday goodies so I wanted to share some of them with you!


I first have to tell you that my absolute favorite tea is back in stores at Teavana! I am so addicted to this white chocolate peppermint tea that I think I could live the rest of my life drinking nothing but this. If you have never tried it I recommend going out and buying some, it’s like the Holiday’s in a mug.


Next up on the list is this layered top from Athleta. I love how it keeps you warm without  being so thick that it suffocates you, plus the opening in the back is perfect to keep you cool through a workout.


I am so in love with this jeweled top from J.Crew. The color is perfect and the jewels at the top are nice because they add a little something. I could definitely see myself wearing this to Thanksgiving dinner.

Lastly it would not be a favorites post if I didn’t mention some candles. Bath and Body Works has all of their “wintery” scented candles back in stores and I am so excited. I love all of the scents but there are a few that are a staple of mine. The candle Winter is probably the best thing I have ever smelled, I usually end up getting all of my hand soaps in this scent as well. I also love Frosted Cranberry and Salted Caramel.

Let me know what some of your favorite’s are at the moment! Have a great Tuesday!
