This time of year induces my soup making mode. I don't know what it is about the cooler weather that makes me want to throw ingredients into my Crockpot and then have warm tasty soup waiting for me a few hours later. If you are like me then this is a great recipe to try. Its a little spicy so if you have little ones in your house you might want to cut the amount of cayenne pepper by half.
I saw a recipe on Pinterest for Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf and it sounded really yummy. Unfortunately, I didn't have ground chicken in my freezer at the time, but I did have a pound of ground turkey so Turkey Parmesan Meatloaf was invented. This meatloaf was really good. It had a lot of flavor and I really enjoyed the taste of the pasta sauce in place of ketchup. Give it a try, I think it will be a family favorite.
I love the taste of orange in my sweet foods. I love the tang and zest it gives to the sweetness of foods. I knew I would love this coffee cake from the moment I saw the recipe. It's a great way to use up oranges that may be going bad soon. This particular recipe is so easy and quick that there is no reasonable excuse to not make it on any weekday morning.

I miss my little blog, even though no one reads it. I miss trying to come up with recipes for it. I miss scouring the internet for creative ideas that I can make my own. I miss the perfect spot in my old kitchen to take the perfect food picture. Life has been too crazy for me lately and I need to change that. Blogging on this blog makes me happy. I will be back with new ideas and recipes soon. . . if anyone out there is even paying attention!

I know. . . strange right? Cauliflower apple soup? But it was so good! A must try, and I'm not even a big cauliflower fan. I received two heads of cauliflower in my Bountiful Basket and didn't know what to do with them. I honestly do NOT like cauliflower raw, and I've tried the mock mashed potatoes with cauliflower and didn't like those either. So what's a girl to do? Well, after scouring the internet for something that sounded good and had cauliflower in the ingredients I finally found a soup that seemed simple enough. I think this recipe would taste just as good with pears in place of the apples, in fact it might taste really good with pears AND apples!

Every time my mom comes to visit she brings her own morning goodies. These goodies consist of her own coffee, coffee creamer and biscotti cookies. On her last visit Asher, my 3 year old, "shared" her biscotti cookies and I was afraid she would run out before her visit was over. So. . . I figured it was time to make some. These turned out a lot better than I thought they would. When I got to the step where you shape them into a log I wasn't exactly sure I was doing it correctly. Thankfully they turned out! I love this recipe because you could easily add ingredients or switch others. Switch the nut, add cranberries, switch from cinnamon to nutmeg or cardamon! Let me know if you switch it up a bit, I'd love to know how others put their own twist to this recipe.
