Halloween is Saturday!  I can’t wait to see all of the adorable trick-or-treaters!  My little guy is going as an astronaut (2nd year in a row—new costume) and who knows what his dad and I will be commanded to be.  Here are some photos from last year’s trick-or-treating (during which it started to snow!):

Sorry for the radio silence!  Since my little guy turned 5, we have been battling ear infections, which resulted in ear tubes round 2 and an adenoidectomy.  We are still recouping at our house, but I thought I’d share a few of our favorite fall dishes.  We’ve been busy baking here, since Gabriel isn’t ready to get out and about quite yet:

  • Nothing can beat the simplicity of oatmeal raisin cookies.  These are the best (so soft and chewy) and fill your house with a glorious aroma as they bake.

  • I love pecan recipes, especially during this season.  This kale and pecan salad would be the perfect side to serve for a fall dinner.

  • Nothing is more comforting than a fall soup.  This butternut squash is a house favorite for our family for a lunch or a festive dinner starter.

  • Everyone needs a go-to game day dish.  These wings are sure to please even the most upscale of crowds.

Give these delicious recipes a try!  The flavors of fall are the best!
