Yes, beets are a Fall vegetable too! We have one early crop that is ready in spring, and another that gets pulled mid – late fall, and I LOVE them! I think I’m going to have to start canning beets this year so I can […]

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte (with video)

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte (with video)

There are lots of things that just scream Fall to me: the turning leaves, crisp air, apple picking, hot cider… and Pumpkin Spice Lattes! Every once in awhile I will treat myself to one and Starbucks does not dissapoint. But wouldn’t it be great to […]

Baked Tailgate Sliders

Homemade Apple Cider: Using a Juicer or a Crockpot

Homemade Apple Cider: Using a Juicer or a Crockpot

We makes gallons of Apple Cider every fall for 2 reasons:  We have tons of apples and this is a great way to use them, no matter what kind they are. Actually, I think mixing different kinds of apples makes the best cider. Because we […]

Delicious Pheasant (or Chicken) Pot Pie

Delicious Pheasant (or Chicken) Pot Pie

If you’re like me, you have a husband who likes to hunt. This is great because hunting husband = happy husband = stocked freezer. Whether you’re used to eating pheasant, or you’ve never tried it before (it tastes like a leaner version of chicken), this […]

Autumn Chopped Salad

Autumn Chopped Salad

Ok guys, this is one of my all time favorite salads, regardless of the season. Every time I serve this someone asks me for the recipe. I usually end up doubling this recipe if we’re have a group over. I literally keep the poppy seed […]

Apple Cider Cranberry Sangria

This has apple cider in it, which to me = yummy fall drink! (Thanks to cookingandbeer.com for this recipe!) You can most certainly make this non-alcoholic, especially for my friends out there who are expecting. We most certainly can’t forget about you guys! I think […]

Oven Roasted Marinara

Oven Roasted Marinara

I looooove homemade marinara sauce. Not only does it taste fresh, but you can really make it your own by adding extra spices or choosing to leave it chunky so you can really taste the pieces of tomato and garlic. You can follow the recipe […]

Canned Peaches

Canned Peaches

Oh my goodness these are so much better tasting than out of a can (and so much better for you too)! I used to HATE peeling peaches, but then a friend of mine gave me a tip- just wait until they’re very ripe, but not […]
