Time for another installment of Fabulous Friday!!!
I’ll admit, it’s hard to do this Crumby life blog every week. Not because I’m lacking amazing recipes from my fellow food bloggers to share, but more because I often forget what day of the week it is.
Hahaha, no judging.
This week, I’ve been coping with the fact that vacation is over, and our next one isn’t for 3 months! We enjoyed out little stay-cation quite a bit, but ducked out of the house a few times to attend a wedding, a Halloween Party, a baby shower, and visit the Food & Wine Festival 2014 one more time before Epcot rolls it up until next fall.
Sigh. 9-to-5 blues. Buuuuut, we will be visiting the ACTUAL Paris in February (along with London and a few stops in Italy), as a (very) late honeymoon, so it’s a definite consolation!
Just gotta make it through the holidays first. One hurdle at a time, please.
Also in February…
Yes indeed, folks! I scored a ticket to the small, intimate, coveted Food Blog Forum food blogger conference, held right down the road at Walt Disney World! I am so beyond excited to attend my very first blog conference! Be a sponge, Erica, be a sponge.
And, because His Cuteness demands it…
Celebrating this #SundayFunday with open windows, my hubby, a crockpot full of chili, Netflix, and this little cutie. He clearly did not want to have his pic taken! #BloggersGetSocial #dogsofinstagram #aussielove #australianshepherds #VaderLordoftheCute #crumbycupcake #autumnlove #bringonthecold #blog #vacationgram

He’s a priss. Awoken from his slumber, and not too thrilled about it. Sorry, bud! <3
Anyway, let’s get to my favorite noms of the week across the internet!
Amber always gets me…her Bailey’s & Coffee Pots de Creme are off the chain!!!
The Speckled Palette’s Baked Brie with Cranberry Chutney. Uhm, all the cranberries, please. (This one has inspired a recipe of my own, actually!)
This Peppermint Sugar Cookie Dough Bark. Dorothy KNOWS how much I love peppermint in everything, I’m convinced.
Jessica’s Trashed Up Hot Chocolate Bar. Ever since I saw this post, I’ve been drooling over the idea of those Lindt chocolates melted in even more chocolate. I know what I’m taking to our Christmas party!
This Ferrero Rocher Cake…OH MY YUM.
This fantastic looking plate of Fall Pasta with Bacon, Chanterelles, and Sage. I’m in love!
Crock Pot Apple Strawberry Cranberry Sauce. WHAT. I would eat this on anything!
I’m probably way too lazy to make these, but I could totally go for a Pumpkin Doughnut with Chocolate Glaze. WOW.
Red. Velvet. Ice Cream. Yes, please take my two favorite dessert things and make them I think, I don’t mind. LOVE.
I can’t get this 45-Minute Coq au Vin with Brown Butter Sage Mashed Potatoes out of my head. I HAVE TO MAKE THIS. It just looks so wonderful and warm.
This Red Velvet Naked Cake with Drunken Cherries is totally gorgeous and definitely calling my name!!!
How ’bout some Bang Bang Shrimp Pasta. I’m starving over here – this looks totally mouth-watering!!
These Breakfast Cereal Cupcakes are too stinkin’ cute! Add a glass of milk and it’s cupcakes for breakfast, hooray!!!
That’s it for this week! Just a small portion of the things I’ve loved on the internet this week. Take me to your recipes! Leave me comments and let me know if there’s anything you think I should be falling in love with this week! Better yet, follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, & Pinterest and leave your links there!

erica acevedo says
Tickets were pretty hard to get – my RL blog buddy missed out on all three sale days! I got supremely lucky, I guess. I have a good refreshing finger!! I will surely give her one for you! 😀
How exciting! You are going to have so much fun!
