I'm still coming to terms with the fact that October is almost over - seriously how did November creep up on us so fast?! I am glad for the cooler weather though, the HOT Texas summer was a bit more intensive than I had anticipated :) And with the cooler weather that means that holiday baking is already commencing in my kitchen, and I had the opportunity to make a few things (and share them!) with Werther's Original Baking Caramels.

It's been a long time since we've done any kind of Halloween Celebrations around our home, but I'm always up for creating - and so when I had the opportunity to come up with some 'Spooky' Halloween Recipes using 7Up, Hawaiian Punch and M&M's, I was up for the challenge.
It's that time of the year when apple and pumpkin flavored foods are everywhere. It's a season of taste that I love! And YoCrunch has your favorite pie flavors as yogurt. Apple Pie Parfait and Pumpkin Pie Parfait (which is new this year).
Game day. The TV is always on in our home. We've been a little disappointed with the performance of our team (yes, we were Cowboys fans even before we moved to Dallas) as of late they've been leaving a bit of a sour taste in our mouth. So on Sundays when the games are at noon, we like to make those games a tiny bit sweeter even when our 'Boys' are fumbling the ball. Dessert for Brunch makes a great tailgating treat and this past week I made some Cake Batter Pancakes with Milky Way Bites that help take the sting out a bit when the Cowboys lose ;)
Family, Food & Football - that's what it's all about in fall, am I right?!
While some people like the wings and the nachos, our family we head right to the sweet treats. And the more chocolate the better. I'm so glad that I'm part of the eMeals blogger network (and because of that, I get some free menu plans to help me feed my family - and if you click any of the links to sign up ... I'll earn a bit of cash, so thanks) even before I became a part of it, it was my go to place to find the best recipes that are
One of my favorite things to eat is popcorn. I love it. Buttered, savory, sweet. Any of those ways is a good way to eat popcorn. I have made a couple of recipes of sweet popcorn mixes before on my blog, but I've never done popcorn balls before.
It made me especially happy to see Good Cook doing a Popcorn Event this month. They sent their Kitchen Experts a range of products to create tasty popcorn balls to kick the event off.

Seriously, it is still SO HOT here in North Texas. Sunday it was 106 degrees! We saw rain for the first time in over a month on Labor Day, and I'm so ready for a cool breeze. Give me a few years and I'll likely be used to it, but right now this northern girl is M.E.L.T.I.N.G.
We've been attending a church with Saturday evening services since we moved, which is an awesome thing because my husband works on Sunday mornings, so we can go to church as a family and worship together. We've been hitting up the 7-Eleven or Marble Slab Creamery on the way home each week for either Sluprees or ice cream.
