Is anyone else completely in shock about the fact that Thanksgiving is practically here. Where has November gone? Or really where has the year gone for that matter… Nevertheless I couldn’t be more pleased about November coming to an end because that means that we will be traveling back home to Minnesota to spend Thanksgiving with our family and friends! It is going to be one incredible weekend. Every year we pretty much make Thanksgiving weekend into a big reunion/get together. We start off celebrating thanksgiving, then black Friday shopping at the MECA (aka Mall of American), and then celebrating our birthday early with our mom and best friends. This may just be our favorite weekend of the entire year and as you can probably tell the excitement is at an all-time high. ☺

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween! I know we did. We kept it pretty low-key this year and attended a puppy parade with our dogs instead of going all out like we typically do. Ivan, Baloo and I were a little family of minions, and my sister, matt and Gunner were a little dino family. It was honestly the cutest thing ever, and it made me extra happy that we decided to forgo our usual Halloween partying, and just spend time with our little families. I think we have finally hit adult status ya’ll LOL. We do however fully plan to partake in next years festivities 😉 We also attended the first STL bloggers meet-up this past Sunday morning and let me tell you it was ahhh-mazing. To finally be able to meet with fellow like-minded women, and to be able to chat and collaborate with women that are all on the same page as us was unbelievably refreshing and re-lit that fire under our asses. We cannot express enough how psyched we are for the upcoming meet ups, and to grow and work alongside all of you fellow girl bosses ;). Now onto the star of the show- Apple Crisp!

Hey guys were back! So sorry we were so MIA for so long! We have had a MIllION things going on, but it was all so worth it because nowwwww Alanzo’s married! Yep! Everyone meet the new Mrs. Alana Malpica!!! With that being said we still have have tons going on. This weekend us and the boys are taking a couples trip to celebrate Alana and Ivan’s mini-moon! We’re so lame we know, but how could we pass up a chance to go to the Halloween capital of the world together? YEP were going to Halloween Horror nights at Universal Studios, Florida! But it doesn’t end there! We are also going to be drinking around the world at Epcot, Disney World! Don’t worry there will be pics of the wedding and the mini-moon to come, but in the mean time we figured we would give you a refresher of our chili recipe just in case you forgot!

Autumn Sangria

As we get deeper and deeper into fall, the only cocktails I want to drink are ones that are fall themed. I honestly pretty much avoid anything else. I ask one of two questions every time a server comes to take our drink order; “do you have any pumpkin beer?” or “what kind of fall themed drinks do you have right now?”. Every year I make sure to try as many autumn beers and drinks as possible because frankly, it just makes me happy. In doing so I’ve managed to learn how to concoct some of my own fall cocktails as well, this one being a fall sangria. This cocktail screams autumn, and if you haven’t already gotten into the holiday spirit then this drink will surely jumpstart your autumn recipe cravings.

Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

Without fail almost every weekend morning that rolls around I find myself craving pancakes. Typically I’m having an inner battle and trying to decide whether I want pancakes or cereal because cereal (cinnamon toast crunch specifically) is pretty much on par with the pancake world, but that’s a different story. Now you all saw our previous post on our healthy go to protein pancake recipe I assume? Right.. right? Well if not make sure you refer back to http://www.twinstakeover.com/category/food/  because these babies are the bombdotcom as well. However, a girl likes options and sometimes prefers something a bit different and this is where these pancakes come through like the shining star that they really are.

Hey guys! How was everyone’s weekend?? Ours was pretty eventful. Matt and I had our first housewarming party and it was a great success! We made all of our own food which we loved but we definitely learned which ideas were good and which were not as easy to keep up with haha. We definitely underestimated the amount of work it takes to go into prepping and making that much food for that many people lol. All in all though it all turned out fabulous and now we have one party underneath our belts and the next one will flow even better! I might actually share the dessert I made at some point on the blog if you guys are interested! I made these little semi homemade strawberry, kiwi trifles, I guess is what you could call them. They basically looked like little parfaits, but with pound cake instead of yogurt. They were a hit! But anyways let’s get into the breakfast recipe I made with Matt last Sunday while my sister was in Vegas!

Tropical Berry Smoothie Bowl

Happy Wednesday everyone! With the warm weather finally among us we thought it would be pretty fitting to share with you one of our favorite smoothie bowl recipes. Our mom has been making smoothies for my sister and I for as long as we can remember, and when I say as long as we can remember, I literally mean as long as we can physically remember. As infants my mom pureed all of our food. She refused to feed us the baby food you see in stores, and instead pureed an assortment of fruits and veggies for us. After that she was constantly making smoothies for us in the mornings, and making sure that we ate our vegetables with every meal. You can see what sparked our health conscious attitudes and ways of living, so for that, we owe you mom. 😉
