Recipes Lately

Since my appetite is back, I have been able to spend a little more time in the kitchen. My baby belly and my husband both appreciate this very much. Here's a few things I have tried lately...it's been fun to cook in season: pumpkin flavored treats and crock pot meals all scream fall to me.




These were a perfect semi-sweet treat: the pumpkin flavor keeps it from being overly sweet and the cream cheese was of course my favorite part. Next time I would probably add a little more even! I contemplated adding chocolate chips but ending up sticking with the recipe. If you are a pumpkin lover, try these!




The next thing I tried was Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken. Oh my, it was delicious! Stephen in fact, loved it and requested it to be served again soon. My favorite part was how simple it was to put together. I started it in the crock pot at lunch and it was done after work. Instead of pulling together a meal at dinner time, it was already done. I have deeply underestimated the wonders of a crock pot!




I served ours with brown whole grain rice for a bit more of the healthy factor. This dish was amazing!

Want to know what's on the menu for tonight? I am prepping this bright and early for another meal to be done when we get home from work. It looks delicious, I cannot wait!

Have you tried anything new lately that suits the fall season? Do tell!
