Try These Recipes for Fall and Winter. They’re Sew Good!

In the spirit of fall and the upcoming winter months, I have started to find new recipes to try.  I love my cookbooks, but sometimes it’s just simpler to check one of my favorite online sources, Pintrest.  The site has so many ideas and variations of recipes with pictures included!  After all, who enjoys cooking something without a picture of what it should look like?

I would like to share some of the “kid-friendly” recipes I have stumbled across recently that are on my to-try-list for the next month!

This is one that I have been eyeing for the last week: Crock Pot Turkey Chili. It sounds absolutely wonderful with ground turkey, corn, bell peppers, tomatoes and spices.  It has no beans and mild spices to help with those picky eaters.

This one does have some beans in it, but if your children aren’t picky it seems like a pretty simple meal for a weeknight.  It incorporates chicken, corn, tomatoes, various spices, and shredded cheese.  Basically all the best parts of a chicken tortilla in soup form! Mmm….Delicious!

And considering the month of October has come to an end, the pumpkins receive an honorable mention with this recipe: Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes.  A healthy way to incorporate whole wheat into special breakfasts!

I hope these inspired you to find some new fall recipes to try! To view these recipes and many more, click here.

The uniqueness of customized gifts

Don’t you love when a friend gives you a present specifically customized to you? Whether it be a concert ticket to your favorite band, a birthday cake with your nickname on it, or a bottle of your signature scent, a customized gift says I know who you are and what you like. Sometimes it becomes hard in the craziness of life to pay attention to all the individual quirks of friends, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters and husbands. I often find myself wondering does she like chocolate cake with vanilla icing or vanilla cake with chocolate icing?

The good news is that you can still give customized gifts, even if you forget some of the details. As long as you can remember their name, customized items are possible. I love taking requests for personalized items such as this customized “Genevieve” journal or “Chef Caroline” chef hat.
