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!
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!

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!
Whoa, what a week last week! If you followed along with me on Instagram, you will know that we talked about everything back to school and had a week full of giveaways and more! It was such a great week, but this week we are back to talking about easy dinners, because at this time of year, we need those easy meals more than ever! Am I right? You may have seen my Top 10 Easy Weeknight Meal post by now, but in addition to meals that are ready in under 30 minutes, at this time of year slow cooker meals come in very handy too! My Slow Cooker Sticky Asian Ribs are so easy to make up any day of the week and your whole family is going to love them!
Almost everyone I know is in full back to school mode and almost everyone I know is feeling a little more tired than usual this week (us included). Between new schedules, earlier rise times, and having to pack lunch boxes I know that getting dinner on the table can sometimes seem like more of a chore than ever! Easy dinners that everyone will love, that you can prep in advance, and that can be on the table in 30 minutes are essential for survival if you ask me! My easy lentil meatballs with homemade marinara are just the kind of meal that you will have the energy to make on even the busiest of days!
