This week is the first time that I’ve felt like Fall is really in the air. I’ve noticed the leaves in the yard starting to turn colors, my sweatshirts are getting some use more often, and I have to bundle up when I take Sophie outside in the mornings. When the evenings start getting chilly, I tend to start staying in and hibernating a little bit, which means making more dinners at home. I still don’t want to spend all night in the kitchen (because I’m trying to finish the 4th season of Love Island…let’s be honest), so finding a recipe that’s both delicious and easy to make is at the top of my list lately. This avocado & spinach pesto pasta is the perfect meal to make in between seasons when you’re having a hard time saying goodbye to Summer, but looking forward to cozy nights in too.

After getting married last year, I became a stepmom, which added a whole new element to dinnertime at our house. I hadn’t prepared many dinners for kids before and now trying to find something that my stepson will actually eat is a challenge (he’d eat chicken fingers for every meal if he could). This easy cheeseburger pasta recipe is simple to make, delicious, and it comes together in no time. And with the name “cheeseburger” in the title, it’s easy to get the kids on board too! It definitely reminds me of a boxed version my mom used to make when I was little, but it’s SO much better and just as easy!
I tend to entertain a lot during the fall and winter months. Between October and February tons of holidays and events can creep up and can become a little overwhelming when you’re responsible for feeding a crowd. Today, I’m sharing how to set up a DIY chili bar, which is one of my favorite easy entertaining ideas to use all season long. (Super Bowl anyone?!) They don’t require a lot of effort on your part and can be made to appeal to a variety of diets and tastes. I’m also sharing a delicious recipe for my favorite turkey chili too!
Thanksgiving is this week, and although you’re probably more focused on the main dinner event right now, keep this little recipe in your back pocket and pin it for later when you’re trying to figure out what to do with all of those turkey leftovers! These mini turkey pot pies are really easy to make for a weeknight dinner and they’re delicious!
Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and, thankfully, I think I’m off the hook for preparing dinner this year. It’s my first year close to Josh’s family and I was fully prepared to be the one hosting everyone in our rental house, which would have been less than ideal. But Josh’s aunt saved the day and invited us over to her place. Not sure I’ll get so lucky next year though. 😉 If you’re in charge of dinner prep for your family’s thanksgiving festivities this year, I’m sure you’re on the hunt for the perfect table setting and all of the yummy recipes. But one detail that often gets overlooked is the butter. It’s something simple, but with the easiest little entertaining trick you can turn it into a showstopper. In today’s post, I’m showing you guys how to make shaped butter, which is SO simple, but can really elevate your Thanksgiving table!
Skip the take and bake and make some homemade pizza from scratch! It’s a lot easier than you think and this spicy chicken sausage pizza recipe is a great place to start 😉
The dough and sauce can be make ahead of time, which means less time in the kitchen. And another great thing about this pizza is that you bake it in a sheet pan! No fancy pizza pan needed!

I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade meals. I can remember watching Sandra Lee on the Food Network when I was younger and I still love the idea of using some store bought items and some homemade ones, to get dinner on the table quickly. With the holiday season coming up and busy schedules on the rise, getting a meal on the table that doesn’t involve going through the drive thru first, is a challenge in and of itself. Plus, when the weather gets colder outside, I crave easy, warm dinners that don’t require a lot of effort on my part. Today, I’m sharing an easy meal idea, that’s perfect for the family and also includes a recipe for easy focaccia bread sticks too!
This fall zucchini soup recipe is the perfect way to enjoy those chilly evenings and it’s delicious and easy too!
Last week I was sitting under palm trees on a sunny, warm beach in Maui listening to the ocean waves and this week I’m been welcomed back to reality with chilly 50 degree mornings and pumpkins galore. (I will be sharing some more details about my Maui trip soon!) Not that I’m complaining, I’m definitely team pumpkin and fall is my very favorite season of the year, but it’s still a little rough 😉
With chilly weather, comes soup season! I don’t know what it is about curling up with a warm bowl of soup that’s so comforting, but the fact that it’s also fairly quick and easy to make doesn’t hurt either! Today, I’m sharing an easy Zucchini soup recipe that is the perfect way to usher in the fall season. Creamy goodness, that’s chock full of yummy fall veggies. You won’t even know you’re eating zucchini 😉
