Yellow Cake Baked Oatmeal

…AKA your new favorite breakfast. Chrissy Teigen does it again (If you haven’t purchased a copy of Cravings yet, I highly recommend it). Everything in there is pure gold.

Neighborhood, Jack Mason, Bullzerk, Celebrity Cafe & BakeryJoy Macarons and Dallas Museum of Art are just a few of the vendors that showcased their curated holiday gift selections to eager shoppers on December 6. Pictures with Santa were also available on-site, although I couldn’t convince Hunter to participate in that particular tradition (maybe next year…)

Here are just a few of my favorites:
