November has been busy but awesome. I've been dedicating so much extra time to this blog, it's almost like having two jobs. Except I don't get paid for one of them. Yet. Hopefully, you'll help me change all that.
We started off this month with a short trip to Chester. It was so restorative. Exactly what I needed in these dark months.
Have you been having your heart broken and your mind blown by Seven Worlds One Planet this month? We could probably watch nothing but David Attenborough nature documentaries forever. I can't believe the shots they're able to get. So beautiful. It's on the BBC in the UK. I hope it's showing somewhere in America as well.
I've also taken a couple of free webinars this month. They're helping me focus on improving my food blog and turning it into a real business. I don't have the money to take the courses that these free webinars are selling, but both Beth Kirby of Local Milk and Sarah Fennel of Foodtography School and Broma Bakery have given me a lot to work with. I definitely recommend subscribing to their email lists if you want to improve your photography. They have some free resources and great tips to improve your online images, and I feel like they have a really healthy and realistic approach. If you get to take or have taken their courses, let me know how they went.
Internet food is so good right now. This Sheet Pan Egg in a Hole with Sausage and Breakfast Potatoes is such a genius idea. I never want to stop eating this.
Mac and cheese is a controversial Thanksgiving side dish, but I think this Pumpkin Mac and Cheese should definitely count.
My Thanksgiving hot take is that traditional pumpkin pie is not that great. This Classic Pumpkin Pie with Chocolate Whip could change my mind.
November is always tough. The darkness is real. But Christmas is right around the corner, and we're bringing in some extra light. It's gonna be awesome.
