What a gorgeous autumn day! I can't believe it's October already. The leaves are turning, and I've been cooking with my favorite fall flavors—pumpkins, winter squash, apples and spices. I love this time of year. So grab an apple muffin and a pumpkin spice latte, and pull up a chair next to the fire. Here are my top 10 easy paleo recipes for fall.
All you need is some chilled leftover rice in the fridge and this recipe for The Best 10-Minute Fried Rice from Pinch of Yum, and you're on your way to a wonderful Meatless Monday dinner. Lindsay actually timed herself to see how quickly she could put this dish together! Using frozen peas and corn makes it quick, but you can experiment with other vegetables of your choice, and even use a package of pre-cooked rice if you don't have any on hand. Yum—fried rice in 10 minutes!

Friday night we had home made pizzas. There was maybe a half cup of sauce left, and I thought about just throwing it away, but I ended up saving it, and im SO GLAD I did. I was rummaging through the fridge this afternoon trying to find something that sounded good for lunch. Nothing was standing out. When I’m hungry I get whiney so I knew I better find something quick (come on, don’t act like im the ONLY one) Just when I was about to slam that refrigerator door, I spotted that pizza sauce!!! Just like that, I had an idea! PIZZA QUESADILLAS!!!...more
Reasons I Love Fall
Pretty colors outside
No more sweating
New seasons of my favorite television shows
Open windows with a cool breeze
It’s almost Christmas
Reading books while Chris watches football
Handing out candy to trick-or-treaters

I'm always trying to sneak vegetables into breakfast foods. I like starting my day off with eating something healthy. If the rest of the day doesn't go according to plan and I don't get to have a healthy meal later, at least I already had a serving of vegetables and I don't have to worry about scurvy....more
Happy Sunday! I whipped up this pasta recipe last night and it is a definite keeper! My hubby can be picky about pasta, meaning if there is no meat it is not considered dinner. I couldn't be more different and would pass up meat for veggies or pasta any day. We come to a happy medium most nights ;) I do think the words "this is a keeper" came out of his mouth, so you know it's a good one. It also couldn't be easier. I love recipes that are quick, easy, and tasty. ...more
