It's ironic that I'm posting this recipe for Football French Bread the day after our team, the Chicago Bears lost (with the home field advantage) to our arch rivals, the Green Bay Packers. UGH! We'll never hear the end of it, you can be sure...but never mind all that! That's hardly important!
When the call went out to the #SundaySupper team from the good folks at Idaho® potato to develop Halloween recipes featuring their spook-tacular potatoes, my mind immediately went racing, and my blood ran cold.

A mere two days ago I brought you a nice, healthy smoothie recipe, and today...it's popcorn balls!!! Not just any popcorn balls, mind you...CHICAGO MIX Popcorn Balls!
Last week I announced that I wanted to open up Woof Wednesdays to you, my readers so you could have the opportunity to share your beloved pet's (dogs, cats, horses, birds, lizards, etc.) photos along with a little something about why you love them. Today I'm thrilled to introduce our first (of what I hope is many) Woof Wednesday's - Pet Friend's Edition, and the people who love them!

As a food blogger, I try to be extra mindful of what recipes I'm bringing to you and I try my hardest to supply you with a wide variety and selection of foods. From breakfast till dinner, and all the meals and snacks in between, I hope I've been able to keep your appetite satisfied with a varied diet so you'll never be bored. That's what cooking; baking and blogging is all about for me, and hopefully for you too. After all, "variety is the spice of life...especially in the kitchen!"

For this weeks #SundaySupper theme of Fabulous Fall Foods, I decided that I'd like to make and share a recipe for an Oktoberfest Schnitzel Melt Sandwich.

It's been an incredibly long time since I shared with you about my painted wine glasses. Yes, I know that I try and incorporate a glass or item with almost every recipe I share, so you do get to see them, but a stand-along post about them has been rare.

I've been trying to use my slow-cooker on a pretty regular basis lately, but until now I've never baked a cake. I'm very pleased with how this Pumpkin and Blueberry Cake turned out, even though I kept peeking into the cooker because I was nervous that it would be an epic fail!

Hi everyone, it's Ivy speaking. Want to know why I look so sad?
That's why we have a special announcement to share with you today :
So what's that mean to you? So glad you asked!!!
What we'd love for you to do is email us a Jpeg photo (or two or three) of your amazing pet (dogs, cats, guinea pigs, birds etc.) along with a short story of who they are and what makes them so special to you. Then, every Wednesday, my mom will post your photos and stories here on the blog so that we can all enjoy each other's "animal offspring" by sharing a smile, a laugh, and by spreading the special love that only our pets can provide.
(You have our 100% guarantee that the only email address we'll ever share is our own.)
So, what do you think? Does this sound like something you'd like to join in on? Nell, Nutmeg and I sure do hope so! We can't wait to make some new friends, so hurry and get your photos sent! The more the merrier :)
Until we woof again,

The bones and inspiration for this No-Rise Whole Wheat French Bread recipe comes from my friend Jamie of Life's a Feast. When I saw her post three gorgeous loaves of what she was calling Fast and Fabulous French Bread, I just knew I needed to try it. Naturally, I had to put my own spin to it, so I decided to switch up the flour, add some dried basil to the middle and then add some sesame seeds to the top. I couldn't be happier with the results Thanks, Jamie!

Hands down, I'm a breakfast sausage lover and would choose it nine times out of ten over bacon. Maybe you feel the same way. If you do, I have an awesome recipe for you today where you can get the same flavor of your favorite pork breakfast sausage, except that you make it with ground turkey that keeps the fat down and makes it a whole lot healthier for you. I promise, once you try this Homemade Turkey Sausage you'll never miss the pork, albeit it in sausage, or bacon, form.

A few weeks ago I promised myself that I wasn't going to post any pumpkin recipes until we were well into September. After all, pumpkin season is roughly three months long already, and for me that's more than enough time (and recipes) without making it any longer than necessary.

There is nothing I like better than baking homemade bread. There is just something so rewarding and satisfying about seeing it rise in the pan and then smell it baking in the oven, filling the entire house with aromas of heart and home. This recipe for Southwestern Cornbread does just that.

My husband is the vegetable gardener in our household and I tend to the herbs. Every year he plants the usual suspects; tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, peas and zucchini but for the past few years, he's been adding spaghetti squash to the mix and it has now become a garden staple at our house. So for this weeks #SundaySupper "Squash Fest" I just knew I needed to use our favorite new garden staple along with some zucchini that I can't seem to get rid of and the results were these wonderfully flavorful Zucchini and Spaghetti Squash Pancakes!
