Move over other veggies, there's a new side dish in town that packs a punch and is perfect for the upcoming holidays.  These Bourbon Honey Glazed Carrots are exactly what you need to dress up the table for your feasts.  I think one of the best things about the holidays is having a table full of different side dishes to try.  I love my mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, green bean casserole and now I have these tasty carrots to make room for on my plate.  I might need a bigger plate though.  But what the heck, that's what the holidays are all about good eats.

We're getting into my kind of season - nope, not the holidays (though I do enjoy those too), but to me it's now soup season.  I'm kicking it off with these fall favorite ingredients in this comforting bowl of Butternut Squash Apple Soup.  It's made from scratch, really delicious, super creamy, and is under an hour away to being served at your table.  How's that for easy?  And oh, did I mention it's kicked up a notch with a tad of chipotle chili to give it a bit of spice with a smoky flavor?  Well, now you know and have all the details. I'm sure you'll want to be making a bowl of this soon!

Today's recipe is for the adults and it's true confession time!  Some of you may or may not know this but I'm a cocktail sort of gal.  And with it being fall, I enjoy drinks with fall flavors such as this Apple Pie Cinnamon Cocktail.  Trust me, this really tastes like liquid apple pie and is not too heavy on the alcohol side since half of the drink is made with fresh apple cider.  It's tasty, not too sweet and would be perfect for a fall party or just sipping by the fire.  I'll definitely be serving this next time we  have some friends over.  Any takers?

Time is going fast and in this busy world and trying to get out the door, some of us - me included - might not have time for breakfast.  Bummer, right?  But today we have a remedy for that with these Apple Pecan Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies.  They are the perfect answer when you need breakfast on the go and they are loaded with good stuff for that energy needed to start your day off.  Sounding good?  Remember breakfast if the most important meal of the day! And another reason to make a batch is that from start to finish they take under 30 minutes.  Keep a stash on hand that adults, and kids alike, can start their day off with or any time a snack is needed (like after school).

Trick or treat!  Today I'm sharing these Halloween Candy Bites; not only are they super easy to make but they are also really tasty with chocolate, dates, pepitas and almonds.  The perfect snack for your little goblins that they can even help with.  While I made these myself, I could picture my granddaughter helping decorating this treats.  I can also see her dipping her finger in the chocolate mixture and smiling.  Having fun in the kitchen is where it is at with your little "sous chefs."

Ladies and gents start your griddle as you are in for a real treat today!  We love these Apple Pancakes with Apple Maple Sauce.  They are the fluffiest pancake recipe I have ever tried and the apple topping sauteed in maple syrup is fantastic.  Don't wait for breakfast, have these any time your heart desires.  And in our case they were an afternoon snack.  Yep, you know being a food blogger means you might not be able to make and take pictures for the actual meal and this was one of those time.  Of course my taste tester never turns down the 'goods' even if it is close to dinner time.  Trust me - you, your family and friends will flip over this tasty recipe.
