I woke up this morning to crisp air outside y’all! Texas is finally getting a long awaited cool front that is making my fall loving heart so happy! I have been a little out of touch lately because I was out of town last week, my mom has been in town all this week, and I allowed myself to take a little break from work! But when I make a dish that I know you guys are going to love, then I have to share it with you, so here we are! My baked bolognese spaghetti squash is going to satisfy your cozy pasta cravings while helping you fit in your best jeans all season long!
Happy October! It’s officially soup season if you ask me and even thought it’s hotter than fall should technically be here in Texas! We have had a very rainy start to the season which has been perfect for making my favorite soups and getting me in the mood for all things pumpkin and cozy despite the heat. I sure love summertime, but I also really love fall. There is something about the season that just feels comforting and homey right? October is the month that Parks was born, cooler temps hopefully show up, and my favorite holidays are not far away! To kickstart the month, I have rounded up my top ten favorite fall soups to help you get in the cozy kitchen mode too!
Can someone please tell me where September went? Honestly I can’t believe that October is next week and my baby boy turns 3 on Monday! This year is going by at a scarily fast pace, don’t you think? I love this season of cozy foods and all that comes with it and want to savor it while its around! (Time slow down please.) While I may not be getting to wear my fall favorites, because Texas fall doesn’t like to allow for flannels and sweaters, I am embracing fall flavors in the kitchen! This fall chicken salad with pepita granola and a pumpkin vinaigrette is going to knock your socks off in the flavor department and is the perfect fall salad to make all season long!
I have officially been bitten by the fall baking bug! Even though the weather here in Texas isn’t cooperating, I am carrying on with all of the fall recipes! Pears are one of those fall fruits that I feel like people forget about and honestly they are one of my favorites at this time of year! I obviously love them as a healthy snack all by themselves, but they are also fantastic to use in savory dishes and baked goods alike! My gluten free spiced vanilla pear bread is one of those fall recipes that you are going to want to make all season long!

Just because back to school has rolled around and life is a little hectic right now, doesn’t mean that family dinners should go bye-bye because of a lack of time! If anything, this is the time of year where family dinners become even more important because it just might be the only time everyone is together in one place! As you know by now, easy dinners that use minimal ingredients and can be on the table in around 30 minutes are kinda my thing! That’s why I partnered with Village Farm Tomatoes to bring you not one, but THREE easy dinners that can be on your table in a hurry any night of the week! My Mexican Tomato Soup, Grilled Tomato and Cheese Sandwiches, and Skillet Chicken with Green Beans and Tomatoes are three recipes that your whole family is going to love!
We love going meat free at least once or twice a week! It’s a great way to do something good for your health and usually meatless meals are super cost effective too! We have a few recipes on rotation from week to week, but one of our favorite time and time again happens to be an Indian dish called Chana Masala. This is a quick and healthy meal that your whole family can enjoy any night of the week! My easy 30-minute chana masala can be whipped up on even the most exhausting of days no problem!
