20 of the Best Soups for Fall


Autumn is right around the corner and in my family that means, soup for dinner! So, I have gathered 20 soup recipes that look amazing to try this fall!


You may have noticed (or not) that I recently took a little break from blogging.

Here’s why. I decided to stay at home with my kids this year in order to spend more time with them. However, I was starting to feel like I was working a full time job again, from home.

This is not what I wanted!

I love blogging (a lot) but it sure takes up a lot of time! So, I took a little break to reconsider my priorities.

I’ve decided to keep blogging but I am really focusing on keeping a balance between blogging, being a mom and wife, and training for a 1/2 marathon.

Therefore, I want to keep my blog post more simple and fun!

One thing I love to do is cook so I want to incorporate that in more as well! So, here you have it 20 fall soup recipes I want to try this year!

I hope you do too!

Here they are! 20 amazing soups to try this fall!

Easy S’mores Brownies


I do not claim to be a baker, nor do I really enjoy baking. Mention the word, “S’mores,” on the other hand, and I can whip up some gooey, chocolatey, delicious concoction! So, when my daughter mentioned that she wanted to go camping (one time) I jumped at the chance to make that her third birthday party theme!

Because camping = S’mores! And I love S’mores. Did I mention that?

I had so many ideas for S’mores treats, it was hard to settle on this one, but I’m glad I did, because I think they turned out pretty tasty!

So, without further ado, here it is! The S’mores Brownie.

Originally, I had planned on making S’mores cupcakes. Then I had a brilliant idea to make S’mores BROWNIES. Yumm! So I borrowed this brownie pan, which I am in love with, from my sister and got to work.

First I started with the graham cracker crust. There are many different ways to make a graham cracker crust, apparently, but I decided to keep it simple. I put two packages of graham crackers into my food processor. Once crumbled I ended up with exactly 2 cups of graham cracker crumbs. You can also buy graham cracker crumbs at the store if you want to make it easy and skip this step!














Next, I added 8 TBS of melted butter, and 1/4 C. of white sugar.

Once that was ready, my daughter helped me scoop the graham crackers into the brownie pan. We used a spoon to press them down into the pan.

Then we made the brownie batter. We used Betty Crocker brownie mix, but you can use your favorite. Once it was done, we poured the batter over the graham cracker crumbs.

Bake according to brownie directions and let cool. Use a knife or spatula to loosen the edges and get brownies out of pan. Place on a plate or platter.

Pretty sure I told you I’m not really a baker, right? Okay so this next part might give that away. I was really going for a marshmallow topping like the one over at Baking Mischief,  (looks amazing!!) but in a last second decision at the store I grabbed two jars of Marshmallow Fluff. I’m not proud of this decision and it really wasn’t the texture I was going for but hey, it happened.

So, instead of whipping together my own homemade marshmallow frosting, I just dabbed some of this gooey goodness on top of each brownie. Followed by some more graham cracker crumbs and birthday sprinkles..

Soo, not all exactly homemeade or at all healthy, but quick? Yes. Easy? Yes. Delicious? YES!

How I get my Kids to eat Vegetables and Actually Like Them


I don’t know about you, but trying to get my kid to eat vegetables is like pulling teeth! I know it is probably not the biggest deal if they don’t eat a ton of vegetables. But, I have to say it is pretty satisfying when you can get your kid to eat something green every so often. Especially when your child usually fights it tooth and nail.

So, how to I get my strong willed child to willingly eat her vegetables?
