Give me all the burgundy!

This year for fall I absolutely fell in love with burgundy all over again.  Suddenly this rich, gorgeous colour was everywhere and I wanted it all…pillows, blankets, faux pumpkins, flowers…all the burgundy.

Cozy Fall Living Room

Velvet, velvet everywhere!

So I scooped up some new velvet floral pillows in burgundy from Chapters, and a soft velvety burgundy blanket.  Then I used these pieces as the inspiration for the rest of my home fall decorating.

I even used the pillows as the inspiration for my big fall grapevine wreath, that I ended up hanging on my mantel.  I love the scale of it, and the way it ties in so nicely with the rest of my decor.

Then to finish of my simple fall mantel I added a some faux pumpkins in complimentary colours of white, cream, green, blue and purple…it’s all coming together now!

Put a Pumpkin On It

You may have noticed that there’s no shortage of pumpkins in my fall home this year 😉 and I love it.  I piled them on a shelf by my fireplace, piled more on a vignette, and I even snuck one under a cloche…I do love little decorating details like this.

Add Fresh Flowers or Seasonal Grasses

I always try to include fresh flowers in my seasonal home tours, and the flowers I found for this fall tour made my heart leap!  While visiting a local sunflower maze with my daughter, I noticed they had a separate flower garden where you could pick your own bouquet of flowers.  So when I saw all these gorgeous grasses and fall flowers I KNEW they’d be absolutely perfect!  Aren’t they amazing?!

Gorgeous Fall Flower Bouquet

Here they are in my living room…perfect flowers and colours for my fall home…I love how wild and rustic they are.

Cozy Fall Living Room

I hope you enjoyed my cozy fall living room tour!  What I really hope though, is that you leave feeling inspired and wanting to add a touch of cozy to your own home this fall season.  Whether it be a few fall flowers or a collection of faux pumpkins.  Maybe a pillow (or dozen) and a soft blanket to your favourite spot on the couch.  That’s what it’s all about.  Happy fall! xo

Slow Roasted Herb Marinated Turkey Breast

This savoury Herb Marinated Turkey Breast is slow roasted, resulting in tender and juicy turkey.  An easy and delicious recipe that is perfect for your holiday dinner!

I partnered with Canadian Turkey to bring you this delicious Slow Roasted Herb Marinated Turkey Breast recipe, and was compensated for my time, but the recipe, pictures, all thoughts and opinions are my own, as always.  Turkey is delicious!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so now is the perfect time to put together the dinner menu!  I like to put together my meal plans a few weeks ahead of time so I don’t feel rushed once Thanksgiving arrives.  And I also like knowing what I’m going to be making so I have time to gather recipes and the ingredients well ahead of time.  The first thing I think about when I’m putting together my menu, is the turkey!

Slow Roasted Herb Marinated Turkey Breast

Once I have my turkey recipe picked everything else just falls into place!  There are so many ways to cook turkey for the holidays, whether it be a traditional roasted turkey with gravy, a stuffed turkey breast roll or even a roasted turkey breast, like this herb marinated recipe I’m sharing today.  Depending on the size of your gathering, the ideas are limitless!

Slow Roasted Herb Marinated Turkey Breast

Planning for Turkey Leftovers

Over the last couple of years our gatherings have been a little smaller, with just the 5 of us, and I have found that I really enjoy roasting a turkey breast.  Turkey breasts are the perfect size for my family, they’re easy to make and they’re quick!  Sometimes I’ll even make 2 so that I can use one for leftovers…I mean, what’s Thanksgiving without a hot turkey sandwich with gravy at 10 o’clock at night?!  😉  Or you can use the leftovers in recipes like Baked Turkey Cheddar Pull-Apart Sliders, Turkey and Rice Soup, Turkey Pot Pie, or even a Hot Turkey Buffalo Dip.  Leftovers are meal time savers!

Slow Roasted Herb Marinated Turkey Breast

So if you’re looking for something a little different, yet traditional this Thanksgiving, consider making this Slow Roasted Herb Marinated Turkey Breast.  A tender and juicy turkey breast with the nostalgic flavours of rosemary and thyme.

Slow Roasted Herb Marinated Turkey Breast

Slow Roasting Turkey

For this recipe I used a slow roasting technique for cooking the turkey.  Essentially you roast the turkey at 250 degrees for a couple of hours.  The slow and steady roasting results in a tender and juicy turkey breast.  Not only is it delicious to cook the turkey this way, I like the extra time it gives me to work on the side dishes while the turkey is in the oven.

One of the things I like most about this recipe is that the turkey is marinated for a few hours in a mixture of olive oil, rosemary and thyme.  The results are flavourful and delicious turkey!

And if you’re lucky, you’ll also end up with some amazing pan drippings for gravy!  YUM.

Nothing left to do but set the table!  Enjoy!

Make the most of Turkey Leftovers! Here are 10 great tips:

  1. To plan for leftovers, order a turkey that is several pounds bigger than what you need.  That way you can be sure to cook once and eat twice, with leftover turkey to spare for additional meals once everyone has had their fill.  Or if you’re cooking a turkey breast, consider roasting
  2. Plan for leftovers by allocating 1½ – 2 pounds of turkey per person.  This will give you ½ to 1 pound of extra turkey for each person at your table.
  3. Make sure you pack your leftovers within 2 hours after cooking to maintain the quality and safety of the food.
  4. Save and freeze the turkey carcass and bones, too.  Use these to make a delicious turkey stock that can easily be frozen for use in soups, sauces, gravies and mashed potatoes.
  5. Freeze any leftover gravy in muffin tins or ice cube trays.  Once frozen, store in a zip top bag or air tight container and use as needed.
  6. Leftover turkey freezes well, so make sure you fill your freezer!  Wrap your turkey leftovers in plastic to avoid freezer burn and you’ll have ready portions on hand.  Visit www.canadianturkey.ca for recipe inspiration and make salads, soups, pastas or casseroles in a snap!
  7. Store your leftovers properly for best results.  Shred your turkey or cut it up into slices or cubes and freeze in convenient 1 lb meal base portions that are ready to use right from the freezer.  Store in an airtight container in the freezer for a quick start to weekday meals.
  8. Divide your leftovers into dark and white turkey portions before freezing so it will be easy to choose what works best in your recipes.
  9. Make a list of your favourite leftover turkey recipes.  Add to that list so when the holiday season comes around every year you will have a head start with a selection of go-to recipes on hand.
  10. Stock up on air-tight, leak-proof containers or plastic bags for your leftovers or prepared meals so you’re ready to size up your meals any time.

It doesn’t feel like fall over here until I’ve baked one of these Pumpkin Spice Breads, it’s a fall tradition!  This loaf is definitely one of our family favourites.

Pumpkin Spice Bread

Pumpkin is one of my most favourite ingredients to cook and bake with in the fall.  I know it’s cliche to put pumpkin in all. the. things.  But truly, it’s SO delicious in so many recipes…from soups to oatmeals, to bread puddings, french toast bakes, cookies and cakes.  Not to mention pies. High five to pumpkin!

Raisins or No Raisins?

Now let’s talk raisins for a second.  Are you in the raisin or no raisin camp?  Our house is divided on this issue, but Mom and Dad always win so there are raisins in our loaves.  It’s just not the same without them!  What is it about raisins that people dislike so much?!  😉

Pumpkin Spice Bread

So if you’re looking for the perfect fall treat, this Pumpkin Spice Bread is it.

Pumpkin Spice Loaf Recipe Tips:

  • You can use 1 cup of pureed butternut squash instead of pumpkin.
  • Feel free to add nuts (like walnuts or pecans), or raisins to this loaf.
  • Line your pan with parchment or wax paper so you can easily remove it from the pan.
  • This bread is amazing on its own, or with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipping cream!

Pumpkin Spice Bread {A Pretty Life}

NOTE:  This post was originally published in 2011, and I have recently updated it with new photos. I did adjust the baking time to 1 1/4 hours (it used to be one hour), as I found after baking quite a few more loaves, that they needed more time to bake than one hour.  But it’s the same great recipe with a little longer baking time, and new images.  Enjoy!

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

Create a simple and sweet Pumpkin Patch Vignette for fall!  In just minutes you can put together a festive arrangement to welcome in the coziest season of all.

Today I’ve joined a group of blogging friends, and we are sharing our fall mantels and vignettes with you!  Thank you to Krista of Happy Housie for organizing.  Make sure to check out all of the beautiful spaces in the links at the bottom of this post…there is a load of fall inspiration!  As part of todays series, I’m sharing a really simple and cute Pumpkin Patch Vignette for fall. xo

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

I’ve always enjoyed having little arranged vignettes in my home..they’re a simple and lovely way to decorate for the different seasons and holidays.  I especially love the no pressure and no stress feel I get when I’m arranging them.  Sometimes they come together in a natural way as remnants and knick knacks randomly find their way together, and yet somehow everything ends up looking great together!  Kind of like how my Pumpkin Patch Vignette came to be…

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

This vignette came about in a random way as I was decorating my home for fall.  As I was pulling out all of my fall decor I started setting my faux pumpkins on the cabinet in my front hall, just until I could find a place to put them.

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

Later I glanced over and saw them all gathered together here and absolutely LOVED how they looked.  Just a load of pumpkins all hanging out together on my cabinet…like a little adorable pumpkin patch.

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

Mismatched colours, sizes and shapes that work perfectly together.

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

So I decided to keep all of the pumpkins here for now.  I moved a few around, added a few more to the floor by the cabinet, then finished things off with some faux sprigs of Dusty Miller.

Love love love.  I absolutely adore how this vignette came together.  So simple and so pretty.

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

How to Put Together a Pumpkin Patch Vignette

Like I said before, this vignette came to be in a very random way, so trust me when I say it’s the easiest arrangement ever!

  • I used about 13 faux pumpkins, and a few sprigs of Dusty Miller to put this together.
  • Start with 3 big pumpkins along the back.
  • Then add a few medium sized pumpkins to the front.
  • Then add smaller pumpkins to fill in the spaces.
  • Once the pumpkins are placed, tuck in some faux sprigs of Dusty Miller so it looks like the pumpkins are resting on a bed of leaves.
  • Done!
  • If you want to see how I put it together, make sure to watch my quick video below!

7+ Fall Mantel Decorating Ideas!

Celebrate fall by decorating your mantel for the coziest season of all!  Here are 7+ simple and pretty Fall Mantel Decorating Ideas!

With fall upon us, it’s a perfect time to add a little cozy to our homes! And great place to start is with your mantel.  Decorating a mantel for the season is simple and can have such a nice impact in a space, especially if it’s a focal point. Over the years I have shared quite a few of my fall mantels, so I thought it would be fun to put them all in one space…here are 7+ pretty fall mantels to inspire your decorating!

Keep it Simple!

Often I like to keep my mantel decor very clean and uncluttered. But this is because the rest of my living room space has quite a bit of pattern and decoration going on so I feel neutral works best.  This simple mantel is from last year (2018)…I especially love the embroidery hoop wreath I made for it.

Simple Fall Mantel Decor

Bring Natural Elements Indoors

Some of my most favourite decorating items are natural elements like leaves.  For this mantel I snipped a few tree branches to showcase, and I love how they add the perfect pop of colour to the mantel!

A Pretty Fall Mantel

Put a Pumpkin on it…or a Gourd

Is it even a fall mantel if there isn’t a pumpkin or gourd to be found?  😉  But seriously though, they make the best decorations.  But I think my most favourite thing about this fall mantel are the birch wood logs.

Love all the pops of orange on this fall mantel!

Wreaths Make Great Mantel Decorations!

If you love wreaths as much as I do, a great place to hang them besides the front door, is your mantel.  They can even be as simple as a plain grapevine wreath base…I love the rustic look of this grapevine wreath on this mantel I put together a few years ago.

Nice and simple fall mantel decorations!

The Brighter the Better!

But honestly, I love the look of a bold and bright wreath on my mantel the best!  This rustic and fire-y leaf wreath is my favourite…it makes such a bold statement on this mantel I put together a few years ago.

Love the fire-y wreath on this fall mantel!

A Neutral Mantel is Lovely Too

Sometimes I just like to keep things extra simple and decorate with neutral colours.  This neutral mantel is one of my favourites with all the pretty and soft pumpkins that looks so nice with the macrame hanging.

Lovely neutral fall mantel!  Love the blue and grey pumpkins

Have Fun with It!

This harvest themed fall mantel was really fun to put together!  It is full of all the things that make it fall around here…wheat fields, crows, pumpkins and apples!

Harvest themed fall mantel

There are so many ways to decorate your mantel…and as I change mine over the next years, I’ll come back to this post to update it with pictures!  It’s always fun to look back at how things change over time!

Don’t forget to PIN it!

Happy Fall Y’all!

Peach Cobbler

Use fresh summer peaches to make this Peach Cobbler!  A silky and flavourful peach filling with a sweet and delicious biscuit topping.  SO good.

Is there any more delicious fruit than a summer peach?  Flavourful, silky yummy summer peaches.  When the markets are full of fresh summer peaches I put peaches in all the things!  Jams, pies, chutneys, cakes, crisps…all the peaches.

Peach Cobbler

If you’ve got peaches that are a little overripe, or even a little chalky in texture, they’re perfect for baking with.  Baking them into pies, crisps and cobblers, is such a delicious way to use them up.  So when I found myself with an abundance of very ripe peaches I decided to make a Peach Cobbler with them!  Cobblers are so good…with a layer of rich and flavourful peaches under a sweet biscuit topping, you just can’t go wrong.

Peach Cobbler

Serve it up warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream…summer dessert heaven. I hope you try this recipe and love it as much as we do!

Peach Cobbler Recipe Tips:

  • For a little more flavour, feel free to add about a 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon to the peach mixture.
  • Frozen peaches will work in this recipe.  Just add them to the recipe frozen, and add about a tablespoon of water or juice.  You may need to bake the cobbler a little longer… about 10 minutes more.
  • Canned peaches can also be substituted, but you have to strain them first.

Use fresh summer peaches to make this Peach Cobbler!  A silky and flavourful peach filling with a sweet and delicious biscuit topping.  SO good.


Scale

Ingredients

Cobbler Topping:

  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk

Peach Filling:

  • 8 cups sliced fresh peaches
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Cobbler Topping:

  1. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and sugar.
  2. Cut in the 6 tablespoons of butter with a pastry blender, or use your fingers (I prefer this method), until the mixture is like sand.
  3. Add the milk to the flour mixture and stir until just combined, the dough will be wet.  Let it rest in the fridge while you make the peach filling.

Peach Filling:

  1. Mix the sliced peaches, sugar, and flour together.
  2. Add the peach filling to a 9×13 baking dish.

Putting it all together:

  1. Using a spoon, scoop the cobbler topping onto the peach mixture in 2 tablespoon portions.  Make sure to leave some spaces between the topping so that the peach filling can bubble through.
  2. Bake for 45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the peach filling is bubbling through.
  3. Once the cobbler is done baking, let it rest for about 10 – 20 minutes.
  4. Serve with whipping cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
