September In a Nutshell

Another month of 2014 has passed! Where is the time going?Today I’m back with September in a Nutshell! Since many of you seemed to enjoy / appreciate the August recap, I thought it was something I should continue. With Fall Cookie Week and so much more, September was a busy month here on IBC!

Around the house I accomplished a few projects. In the kitchen, I got organized with my DIY Peg Board. I also updated some wall decor in my upstairs hallway with these DIY Picture Ledges. And I finished painting my basement stairwell. I welcomed fall with a few other projects including my painted gourds, restyled bookcases in my office, and a quick guide on making grocery store flowers look fabulous. Finally, and most notably, I shared my Fall Home Tour with you.

In the kitchen, I tried some new dishes. I experiemented with pasta and created this One Pan Chicken Apple Sausage Pasta as well as some Antipasto Kabobs. And there were some fall-inspired treats including my take on Pumpkin Bars and a delicious Caramel Apple Pie Martini.

Wow. As much as I LOVE Fall Cookie Week (and I hope you do as well), it has put me a bit behind in keeping you up to date with what’s been happening around here. Even though I’ve spent a good deal of time in the kitchen lately, there have been other events that I’m […]

Buckeye Brownie Cookies #IBCFallCookieWeek

Even though I shared a chocolate and peanut butter cookie recipe on Monday. I thought that another one really couldn’t hurt. The way I look at it, the more the merrier.
