If you live anywhere in the Northeast, I am sure you have been reaching for your favorite cold weather dinners the past few weeks. I have been rotating between crockpot meals and sheet pan dinners. Or anything else that sounds remotely warm. One of the quintessential winter dinners is chili. And whether made in the crockpot or on the stovetop, chili is one of my favorite winter dinners.
It may be difficult to think about right now, but come Friday, leftovers will be filling most of our refrigerators. Each year, I like to share a recipe that is perfect for using up all those leftovers. Today it’s all about Thanksgiving leftovers: turkey pot pie edition!
If you have been following along for awhile, you probably have caught some of my other granola recipes. I love adding granola to my vanilla yogurt so I am always thinking of new ingredients. I started with the original recipe (here) and have made seasonal changes like peanut butter granola and most recently, carrot cake granola. For fall, I wanted something that really represented the flavors of the season. Caramel Apple Granola sounded fitting.
Now that it is October and pumpkin season is in full swing, I thought it was a great opportunity to incorporate another pumpkin recipe into the mix. After making these pumpkin waffles a few weeks ago, I’ve been on a real pumpkin kick. I don’t want to say pumpkin overload, but I feel like I’ve been consuming a lot of pumpkin lately. But what better time of the year for it! I’m also excited to share this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie in picture and video form!
Happy Tuesday! If you have been following along for the past few weeks, you know I have been having a moment with sheet pan dinners. During the weekdays, I am all about these quick and easy meals. Especially when they have an easier and quicker clean up! I gave this sheet pan eggplant Parmesan a try and it was such a hit, I’m making it again for dinner tonight!
Post-Labor Day and the unofficial welcoming of fall has arrived. Fall is my favorite season for many reasons but two of the top can be broken down into two categories: food and fashion. Imagine that? As much as I love grilling during the summer, I am looking forward to dinners in the crockpot and oven. When it comes to baking dinner in the oven, I always try to come up with recipes that have quick bake times or are at least easy to put together. If they are quick to put together and have a longer bake time, at least you can accomplish tasks while dinner bakes. I have shared our love for Mexican food with you before but these sheet pan chicken fajitas take quick weeknight dinners to a whole new level.
Happy Tuesday! Continuing the Fourth of July themed posts today with an easy, make-ahead dessert that’s perfectly patriotic. I’ve wanted to try my hand at icebox cakes for sometime now and thought that the mixture of berries and cream would make for a delicious summer treat. And with the added flag design out of berries on the top, it will make for a delicious way to end your Fourth of July celebrations next week.
