My family loves freshly baked breads and rolls and so do I. There’s something incredibly special about making fresh breads. Working the dough, waiting for it to rise and baking it to perfection is so much fun! And when the smell of freshly baked bread fills my home, there’s no better feeling. 

I make fresh bread almost every week, whether it’s a basic white loaf or a fresh pizza dough. It’s something easy to do, and when you use products like Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast, it doesn’t take that long at all!

I want to first thank Aunt Nellie’s for making a generous $500 donation to my local food bank, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. I’m so very happy to be partnering with them today to help celebrate Aunt Nellie’s 90th birthday potluck party!

This time of year I love a good pot of chili, and this is one of my absolute favorite chili recipes. It’s a lentil filled beet chili full of all those delicious chili flavors, and loaded with nutritious and delicious vegetables.

It’s almost my favorite holiday of the year Halloween! I’ve been making lots of fun and scary little delicious treats like these little monster eye rolls. We’ve also been planning our family’s costumes for the big day too! Everyone is super excited this year. 

This year we’re going as a pack of dogs. My little son will be a year in a few weeks and he’s going to bee a little white puppy with brown spots. My daughter is a brown dog with a tutu and pink bows. My son is going with a German Shepard mask. My husband got a basset hound mask and I’m going to dress as a cute tutu-wearing labradoodle. What can I say, we love dogs!

Apple Ham Steak Skillet with Cheddar Grits

It’s hard to realize, but fall is upon us! The kids have upcoming fall festivals at their schools, lots of football games to go to and my daughter even has a fun farm day planned with her class. I can’t wait to go pick out pumpkins next month and to go apple picking in a few weeks. 

Every year we plan to make a quick weekend trip to go apple picking and hopefully this year we actually get to go! But life can feet so busy and messy too with three little ones. Between the dirty diapers, muddy shoes and crazy art projects, this house is a mess. It never seems like there’s enough time in the day to get it all done.

Fall is undoubtedly my favorite time of year. It’s not really a season here in the deep south, it’s more of a feeling. It’s Friday night games, festivals and fairs. It’s homecoming, pumpkin patches and corn mazes. It’s girls in super cute fall flannel, adorable plaid scarves and comfy leather boots. It’s decorating our homes with pumpkins, hay bales and straw brooms and sipping pumpkin spice lattes and while sneaking little bites of Halloween candy from those giant bags we bought a month too soon.
