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.

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.

I am all about celebrating food, so when I found out that September was Family Meal Month I decided to honor the month with a delicious recipe that is perfect for family mealtime! There’s not much better than sitting around the table with family, sharing a fabulous dinner. Whether we are talking about our day, discussing upcoming plans, playing word games or telling jokes - being with my family during dinner time is the highlight of my day. And as anyone who cooks for a family knows - it’s awesome when everyone likes the meal you just prepared. When all plates are cleared and there are requests being made for seconds, you know the meal is a great success! Since my family loves lasagna I decided to celebrate Family Meal Month with a new lasagna creation: White Spinach-Artichoke Chicken Lasagna. It was a hit with my family {kiddos included} and I hope it’s a hit with yours too!
