Busy days are coming when Holiday events & prep add to your already hectic schedule. It becomes easy to pick up fast food for the family throughout the week or to simply grab “whatever” to throw together at the last minute. And then we wonder why we all get sick come January! This Holiday season, take a moment to prepare some freezer recipes that allow you to create nutritious meals for your family without as much stress. We are working smarter, not harder this Holiday season. BHG helps with these fantastic recipes for you & your family!
Halloween is Friday. Time to prepare for all the ghosts & goblins coming to your house! Celebrate with the little ones (or the big ones!) with this great selection of Halloween treats from Midwest Living. That’s no trick!
Haven’t a clue what to fix for dinner tonight? Looking for something hardy to feed your family on a cool Autumn evening? BHG has a selection of Fall recipes to help you plan your menu for the cool Autumn evenings ahead.
Earlier, I shared the best apples to use for recipes. Well, here are some recipes so you can tryout those wonderful apples. Mmm, can’t wait to try the slow cooker apple butter in the photo above!
You KNOW how crazy I am about my slow cookers! And if you don’t you should know right off that I have 3 of them: small, medium & large! I prepare entire meals using my slow cookers, including most of my Thanksgiving meal. But more on that later. I am ALWAYS on the lookout for new slow cooker recipes. I believe you can cook anything (almost) in a slow cooker. Plus, you can put the meal together in the crock the night before & put dinner on to cook before you head out in the morning! Anyway, Southern Living has added to my slow cooker repertoire with this selection of, COUNT THEM, 51 slow cooker recipes. This should keep us all out of trouble (& eating well) for awhile!
Pumpkins are not just for Halloween or pies. The good folks at Country Living offer a variety of recipes using pumpkins in all shapes & sizes. Enjoy!
I think apples are one of the best foods around. You can do so much with them, making a variety of recipes to please your family. This time of year, apples are abundant with so many varieties that you might have a hard time choosing which ones to try out. Do your homework. Go online to learn more about the different varieties and discover which types work best in all your recipes. BHG has put together a wonderful selection of apple desserts. Try one or two this Autumn. Or, if you feel adventurous, try them all!
One of my favorite things about Autumn are all the comfort foods I can make again. Most require the oven for preparation & it’s just too hot right now for that! This doesn’t mean I’m not preparing for cooler weather by saving recipes for my family to enjoy once Autumn arrives. Midwest Living has given me a week’s worth of great menu ideas for the cooler weather ahead!
Apples are so much a part of Autumn. Their crisp texture & tart flavor make them the perfect ingredient for so many recipes. However, which apple do you use for which recipe? Midwest Living offers 12 apples to use in your baking recipes, allowing you to pick the perfect one each & every time.
I always LOVE to cook. However, the hot weather of summer sometimes makes it tough for me to work up any enthusiasm for cooking. Now that the temperatures are dropping to the cool level, my creative juices are charging up again. Midwest Living is ready to help me & YOU get back into the kitchen, whipping up fabulous dishes the fall! These recipes also give you a head start on Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
