Monday, September 14, 2020
A favorite fall chowder loaded with cheddar cheese, bacon, corn and potatoes. A very hearty and filling soup.

I've been waiting for a cool day to make Cheddar Bacon Corn and Potato Chowder soup for weeks now.

It's been on the I need make recipes for the blog list but it's just been too hot and the weather's been far too nice to heat up the house so the corn kept going out to the grill and I've been waiting for a drop in temperature.

This barely ever happens in Washington just for the record, we almost always have a few cool days even in August.

So yesterday the temperature all of a sudden dropped to the mid 60's from the mid 80's the day before   and I knew my craving for Cheddar Bacon Corn and Potato Chowder was going to be fixed.

I instantly felt the need for all things soups, stew, apples, pumpkin, sweaters and boots, it hit me like a ton of bricks.

I don't know if it's my bodies way of preparing me for the next few months of rain and gloom or it's just some crazy subliminal thing that happens.

This soup has everything that makes me love the fall with it's cheddary, velvety texture, smokey baconliciousness (I know it's not a word, spell checks yelling at me at this very moment but I like the sound baconliciousness), tons of locally grown fresh corn and creamy potatoes.

It's everything in a bowl of chowder I need! 

Tropical Green Smoothie

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.

Mason had braces put on last week and his diet has consisted of mainly smoothies since his teeth have been tender. So, I've been making him a lot of these Tropical Green Smoothies to make sure he's still getting plenty of veggies and protein.


The pineapple, mango, kiwi, orange, and banana add plenty of sweetness. Making it easy to slip in some kale and spinach so he's still getting enough veggies.


I've searched for a long time for a vegan protein powder that didn't have a gritty texture and was super surprised when I saw that Open Nature® has recently come out with a Vanilla and Chocolate Plant Based Protein Powder with 21 grams of Protein in each scoop while I was at my local Safeway. Mason usually isn't big on protein powder because of the texture but he's become fond of both to get his protein.


Here's how I make this delicious Green Smoothie recipe:

Apple Dumplings In Caramel Cinnamon Syrup

Tuesday, September 1, 2020
An easy fall favorite Apple Dumplings in Caramel Cinnamon Syrup are always a favorite!

I can't believe it's November already and Thanksgiving will be creeping up on us really quick.I figure there's no better way to kick off the start to November than with Apple Dumplings in Caramel Cinnamon Syrup.

If you've never had Apple Dumplings your missing out! It's a flaky tart apple turnover slowly cooked and basted in a caramel cinnamon sauce to leave a sweet coating on the outside of the crust.

Apple Dumplings are a great alternative for Thanksgiving if your looking for something a little different than traditional apple pie. 

If your needing a life changing experience make sure to serve these bad babies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with the cinnamon caramel sauce from the bottom of the pan. 
It's life altering.
