Caramel Apple Pie Rice Krispies Treats

Since we are a family that seems to always be on-the-go I like to keep a few easy and delicious snacks to take along with us, just in case. It is no fun being on the road, at the park or running errands with kids when hunger strikes. Hunger can make kids cranky, irrational and all-around a little crazy - so I try to avoid it from happening at all costs! One of my favorite snacks to grab before heading out the door is Kellogg's Rice Krispies Treats - whether they be homemade or bought from the store. They're easy to pack, the kid's love them and they're one of my childhood favorites! I decided to make my kiddos {and myself} a special fall-inspired on-the-go snack: Caramel Apple Pie Rice Krispies Treats. Make a batch of these, stick them in sandwich bags, place them in the fridge and have a snack on-hand that will wow your little ones!

Triple Bean and Vegetable Soup with Pork

The cold weather is here which means it's time for lots and lots of soup. This Triple Bean and Vegetable Soup with Pork is the first soup I've made this season and it was the perfect way to bring in Autumn! It's good to have a few good soup recipes on-hand for the cooler months and I thought this one is perfect for just that. This soup is easy to make, inexpensive and most-importantly it's seriously delicious. Whether it's to beat the cold weather or a need for some soul-warming - this soup should do the trick!

ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple {Snack Good. Feel Gooder.}

Am I the only one whose daily life makes them feel like they need a vacation? Life is so busy, especially with 4 kids under the age of six, I'm constantly daydreaming of lying on a beach somewhere far, far away. However, that vacation is not coming anytime soon. We've got the school year under way, Little League season in full swing, harvest-time activities and much more to keep us busy and away from any thing that resembles a vacation. However, we do have an outlet which allows us to get out, get moving and most importantly relax - disc golfing. It's a far cry from an actual vacation but it still gives us a chance to clear our minds and unwind. It's certainly one of our favorite ways to #FeelGooder.

Harvest Cheesecake Bars

Fall has officially kicked off and it's time to celebrate! This is by far my favorite time of year - from the cooler weather and the changing of colors in nature to the harvest-time activities and recipes. We have so many fun Fall traditions that I'm excited to get started and wanted to start the fun with some fall-time inspired baked goodness. {make sure to check out the giveaway at the end of this post for a KitchenAid mixer that would certainly assist in fall baking!} I love, love, love all of the Fall-themed baking ingredients, candies and drinks that fill store shelves during Autumn so much that I couldn't help but grab a little of each during my last trip and create a special treat to start the season with.

These Harvest Cheesecake Bars are packed with fall flavors! From a soft pumpkin-y crust and the apple-y cheesecake to the delicious streusel-type topping sprinkled with M&M's® Pecan Pie candies. Not only are they are easy to make but they will fill your house with a delicious autumn-time scent.
