Chilly - The Things I Heart

Yesterday morning I woke up to the swirling of snow flakes! 
Minnesota's first snow fall of the year!

It instantly made me wish I could sit curled up in my PJ's all day.  You know with a cup of hot chocolate (loaded with marshmallows) a good book and a cozy blanket.  Now that would have been the perfect day! 

So in honor of the first snow and the fact that the weather is getting much much colder I thought I would share a few of my favorite winter inspired things (the stuff I love as the weather gets colder)!  

1- Starbucks Christmas Cups

2- Warm pots of chili on the stove. 
I made a big batch of vegetarian chili on Sunday in my new Le Creuset Pot. 

Here are some of my favorite recipes:

Tempeh Chili - Peas and Thank You  - I got the recipe from her Cook Book 

3 - Hot chocolate in holiday mugs - extra marshmallows!  

Try these recipes: 

4- Warm Fuzzy Mittens and Scarves 

5 - And last but not least warm cozy blankets to curl up in and watch the snow fall!

What are the warm winter things you love the most?


  1. All of these things make me so happy that it's fall!

  2. I love chili!! It's been getting cold here too! Like down into the 50's at night lol but it's cold to me!

  3. I'm definitely going to try that Pumpkin Turkey Chili. Sounds like the perfect fall dish.
