Sustainable & Chic…Wool Sweaters. (no joke)

You could be fashionable, warm and eco-conscious all in one sweater.


No, really.


Meet Wool and the Gang, Unique Knitwear Designed In London, Hand Knitted In The Peruvian Andes.

We have seen a few frosty mornings this fall already, so the sweaters are coming out of the shadows and back into my style rotation. As always this time of year, I have my eye on a few new pieces too:

Ease into the season with a scarf-sleeve hybrid for the not-quite coat-weather days (or an extra partial layer on the frigid days)

Maybe a nice wrap for coldish mornings, when you’re just running to the mailbox.

Try a Warm Berry Cape for a cozy cover.

Make it a sweater dress for good measure.

Make a statement with a custom phrase on your fleece.

Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

So simple. So true.



Yum: Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fun fact: I have a serious sweet tooth and a powerful snacking urge. My go-to? Chocolate chip cookies. In fact, I’ve had this one particular Mrs. Fields’ recipe memorized since I was eight years old (no joke). However, you can’t always make the same thing over and over, or it won’t be special anymore. So I opted for a quick and easy use for the unusually large amount of almond butter I recently acquired satisfyingly snack-y alternative cookie.

In my search, I came upon this recipe for flourless chocolate chip cookies (technically chunk, but whatever, they both work).

Flourless Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies sans sea salt

You should really try these. They’re freaking delicious.

I switched it up, made mine with brown sugar for a little more crisp, and sprinkled it with sugar because I don’t really like a strong sweet/salty combo (except in my salted caramel lattes, of course!). I meant to share them with my husband, but I basically ate them all instantly. Oops.

While you’re over at Ambitious Kitchen snatching up all of her recipes (dude, those enchiladas are up next!), you’ll want to thank Monique for this successful experiment!

Now, excuse me, I think I need more cookies.
