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!
In the summer, I like eating light. However, when I think about Autumn, I think comfort food, hearty food. Nothing too heavy but dishes that combine the best Autumn has to offer. Good Housekeeping shares a selection of recipes to stir your imagination & taste buds. Come On, Autumn, we’re waiting!
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 charing up again. Midwest Living is ready to help me & YOU get back into the kitchen, whipping up fabulous dishes the fall! Enjoy!

You KNOW how much I LOVE my slow cooker! Actually, make that slow cookerS since I have 3 of them, small, medium & large, that I use all the time. While I come up with most of the recipes I use in my slow cookers, I am always on the lookout for new ideas to keep things fresh. Midwest Living offers a variety of recipes to take you & your family into the cool Fall days ahead.
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!
