Recipes, Scarves and Jewlery!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Stella + Dot has a collection where 100% of the proceeds go to Breast Cancer research. Everyone needs a little more pink in their life.


 And speaking of charitable shopping. Are you familiar with A.Barclay scarves?

"For every scarf that is purchased, A.BARCLAY buys an item of need from a Tanzanian for a Tanzanian, supplying multiple orphanages in the country with day to day necessities and stimulating local markets.  Depending on what the orphanages need, the items we donate will vary from season to season."

Anna, the founder of this amazing lines of scarves has generously offered TTS readers 20% off your purchase until Monday at midnight using the code EXTRA20.


On Tuesday night, after 2 full weeks of eating out, I decided we need a delicious (and healthy) home cooked meal. After some convincing Spencer let me make some spaghetti squash. I posted a picture on instragram and you guys requested the recipe, so here it is!

You will need:
1 spaghetti squash
Amylu Italian Chicken Sausage (I have tried a lot of brands and this is by far the best one)
Yellow peppers
Pine nuts
Parmesan cheese
olive oil

Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut spaghetti squash in half horizontally (this part is tough but just keep pushing). Pull out all of the seeds.

Step 2: Put a little bit of salt, pepper and olive oil on the flesh of the squash and lay it flesh side down on to a cookie sheet.

Step 3: Bake for 30-40 minutes. Use a dinner fork to pull out the "noodles" from inside the squash. 

Step 4: Cut zucchini and yellow pepper into small pieces and cook on the stove top with salt and pepper.

Step 4: Combine basil, olive oil, parmesan cheese and toasted pine nuts in a food processor to make pesto.

Step 5: Cut pre-cooked chicken sausage into bite sized pieces and brown in a nonstick pan (no oil is needed)

Step 6: When sausage, pesto and squash are all finished combine in a bowl and feast!


Sorry for all the randomness, but I needed a break for the wedding pics to squeeze in some important things like shopping and food.

Have a great weekend!


  1. That spaghetti squash dish looks amaziiiing.

  2. im so making the recipe even if AJ won't eat it. it would be great for lunches!

  3. Sounds super yummy! It definitely takes some persuasion to get my hubby to eat spaghetti squash, but this looks like a winner! :) thanks!

  4. omg j was so not excited about spaghetti squash at first. but i think as long as i make it with ground beef (or i might slip in ground turkey), he'll try it.
