Fall is in full swing, which means lots of in-season vegetables! There’s Brussels sprouts, beets, potatoes, and lots of hearty squash. Spaghetti squash is on repeat for dinner in our home this winter!

There is no better way to cook vegetables than roasting. It brings out all the flavors and crisps them up nicely. No one at the dinner table will be able to resist! This recipe for roasted fall vegetables requires just one-pan (easy clean-up! yay!) and is the perfect side dish for a weeknight dinner. You could also double the recipe and serve it on your Thanksgiving table!

Pumpkin season is in full swing over here! With the cooler weather comes lots of comforting, hearty dishes, hot chocolate, cozy movie nights, and of course, lots of pumpkin! We can’t stop eating this healthy pumpkin cookie dough dip right now; it’s perfect with fresh fruit! I had to make another pumpkin creation for the family to enjoy.

What happened was these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats. I’d say it was a great idea!

Oats are already a healthy breakfast option (especially for those who are gluten-free), and pumpkin just adds even more nutrition! It’s full of vitamin A for healthy eyes, beta-carotene, and fiber. Mixed with some cinnamon, pecans, and a drizzle of molasses, it’s the perfect fall addition to your morning bowl of oats. Plus, all you have to do is mix everything the night before, wake up, and dig in!

Ah, summer. It’s such a fun time of year because the weather is nice, and there’s so much time to spend with your kids and family. We love getting outdoors, staying active, and enjoying each other’s company while we can!

Sometimes it can be hard to keep the kids entertained, though. Long days with nothing to do can get boring really quickly, so I always like to give my kids activities to do to keep their creativity flowing even while school is out.

I love all of these summer crafts for making with the kids; it’s great bonding time to create something together! They’ll have so much fun painting and making slime with their brothers & sisters or friends that they’ll never be bored during the summer again!

One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh berries available. Especially here in Louisiana, where locally grown strawberries are ruby red and juicier than any fruit you’ll ever try. It makes me even more thankful to live in a place with such tasty food!

Since summer is basically just a time for me to figure out how to eat the most amount of berries I possibly can, I have to get creative with recipes. My favorite? Smoothies! I love freezing fresh berries and throwing them in the blender for creamy, refreshing smoothies.

This Triple Berry Smoothie is one of our favorites right now! Berries are a great source of antioxidants, so we have three types of berries in here for the nutrition punch. And the tastiness. :) Greek yogurt adds protein and creaminess, and you can even add a handful of spinach for extra nutrients.

You and your kids will love this refreshing Triple Berry Smoothie for breakfast or a snack on warm summer days!
