Breakfast

Whether it’s a special occasion, or just the weekend, one of these breakfast ideas will be the best part of waking up!

What’s in season

From cakes and quick breads to pies and pancakes, everything benefits from the sweet and spiced flavor of pumpkin.

Great idea for Halloween and Thanksgiving!

How cool is this? Use the pumpkin as the serving bowl for this Rice and Vegetables dish. If you don’t like rice with fruits, substitute meat instead, and add different herbs. Rice can be replaced with potatoes too.

Autumn is here…

Keep warm as the weather turns cooler with these easy fall recipes!

Slow cooker (crock pot)

Slow cooking allows flavors to steep and blend together. It circulates heat and liquid so food stays moist.
