It’s the END of November already?!? Where did that month go? It seems like just last week I was handing out candy and writing the last dash of sparkle newsletter. But I am not going to lie, I am ALL ABOUT the Christmas music, so bring on December!
In November we had a super quiet month. Well, no kidding, it flew past in the blink of an eye. We basically spent the entire month working. Working on the blog like mad people, it is not uncommon for me to be staring the screen for 15 hours a day these days… But it will all be worth it soon, because on SUNDAY we launch our very first 12 Days of Christmas!!!
The 12 Days of Christmas

To make sure you don’t miss a thing, subscribe down below and we will send the recipes straight to your email!
What else happened in November
We celebrated ONE YEAR of blogging!
On November 9th, Whipped It Up turned ONE! I still can not believe that I have been doing this for over a year now. I will be writing about our first year soon, and if you have any questions for me feel free to email me, or comment down below and I will be sure to answer all of your questions in that post!
Another major change for us in November was launching our new look! We totally overhauled our site, because we needed more functionality and control behind the scenes and our old site was just not offering that. So I sat down for an entire weekend and set it up myself ?(thank goodness for google)! Anyway, I am in love with the functionality and I have so much more control now. Do you like the new look? Let us know what you think!
Over the last few months now, Eddie has been helping tremendously with social media! If you are a blogger too, or running any business online, you will know how hard it is to stay on top of all the social media outlets. I needed help, and I am so grateful that he offered to help!
New on the Blog
Because I have been so busy working on the upcoming project, I had to step back on the regular posts. But I still managed to get one up per week! So incase you missed any of them, this is what is new in November.
Apple Rum Monkey Bread
Apple Rum Monkey Bread is basically apple stuffed cinnamon bun balls, drenched in a rum glaze. This recipe takes a while to make, but it is worth every second in the end!
Turkey Shepards Pie
This Turkey Shepards Pie is a super easy recipe and comes together in under an hour. Perfect for those busy weeknights. As an added bonus, it is loaded with LENTILS! Lentils are so good for you and they add so much nutritional value to this meal. They are easily incorporated into this dish, you can't even taste them!
Fully Loaded Breakfast Burritos
Eddie took the reigns on this recipe and created these killer Fully Loaded Breakfast Burritos! They are delicious and perfect as a grab and go breakfast on those busy mornings!
Guinness Beef Stew
This Guinness Beef Stew is all of your winter recipe dreams come true. It is SO GOOD and best enjoyed cuddled up on the couch with a cozy blanket, while watching Christmas movies!
And that's a wrap on November for us. We are so excited for December and Christmas, make sure you stay tuned for the 12 days of Christmas treats, launching Dec. 1st!
