I usually cook a Rachel Ray’s recipe but I had to take a break. Why? Well, My friend posted her amazing soup recipe on Facebook. I asked if I could share it with you. This is the best soup I have ever had using squash and it freezes well.
Did someone say football? I will admit I picked my college not based on academics but based on the size and breadth of the stadium. I walked into Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, and I felt like I had gone to heaven. I live, eat, and breathe football sometimes I lose my breath while watching football. You guys, It’s true! And I’ve come to accept and embrace that I would rather watch football than anything else when it comes to fall. That means I do a lot of sitting because let’s face it the only thing I run is my mouth. I can, however, catch pretty well since my kids throw everything at me that they can.
I tell you all of this because if I am sitting in front of the TV on the weekend, I need to make sure I am eating healthy. That is why I love these Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches and stadium veggie cups I make for our family tailgating party. They are easy to make, tastes great, and are easy to feed a crowd. I assume you could use this same basic recipe for any lunch meat, but the ham has the best flavor. I just love these Healthy Tailgating Recipes.
Kids Halloween Recipes:It’s that time of year again, the time for changing leaves, cooler temperatures, fun costumes, and pumpkins! Fall is my favorite time of year, and Halloween is my favorite holiday, so anytime I see a new fall themed recipe I must try it! This Kids Halloween Recipes: Pumpkin Fluff was SO easy to make and it is absolutely delicious. My little girl has been eating it up since I made it. It tastes like pumpkin pie (but it’s much easier to make)

It is that morning. The one you dread. The one where you forgot to get out of our pajamas and ended up driving your kids to school because they missed the bus. You hadn’t planned to get out of the car, but your littlest dropped their lunch, and the orange tumbled away almost in slow motion. You jumped out of your minivan. You had to save the orange. What if your child didn’t have their serving of fruit? You try to look dignified after almost face planting in your heroic effort to save the orange from the SUV that was approaching quickly. You wave to the crossing guard that reminded you parents are supposed to stay in their car at all times. You get back into your vehicle because the day has to get better.
You drive home, and it does.
You remember next to you sits your Community® Coffee. You pull into your driveway. You do not get out of the car. You bring the mug to your lips. You let the aromatic scent pass by your nose. You inhale. You exhale. You take a sip as the flavorful brew travels down your throat. You smile. You have returned to yourself again.
You do not have to wonder where your Community® Coffee came from. It has been a family owned business for four generations. The owner “Cap” named it Community out of appreciation for his community of friends and the customers he served. You think Cap, and I could have been friends. He gets me. He knows it takes a village to not only raise a child but to grow the best coffee beans. You think about the generations of farmers that have taken great care to produce only the best 100% Arabica coffee beans. Community Coffee features roasted and blended beans using recipes perfected over 95 years. You think to yourself even if I had 95 years experience I still couldn’t have caught that orange any sooner.
You hope your children are talking to you after the pajamas, car line, and the rogue orange incident. You decided to make sure they will forget this morning by making a recipe they can’t resist. You are going to make a recipe using the Community Coffee that you love in the morning into a culinary experience this evening, and it is easier than chasing an orange on a mission to embarrass you.

This is one of my favorite times of the year. We love to grill out and sit around the table to talk, laugh and share special memories together. Grilling can seem intimidating, but don’t let it. With this recipe, you can make this Labor Day a knock out of the ball park.
Chicken Parmesan Subs Recipe
This is the recipe my kids beg for. I mean chicken, cheese, toasted bread that crunches when you bite. We love Chicken Parmesan Subs. This time of year lots of folks are looking for portable meals. You know what I mean…quick, healthy meals you can take with you to the ballpark, swimming pool, and in our case, the hay field. Beyond ham & cheese sandwiches, what should you pack? I have a number of to-go suppers that keep the menu varied and interesting throughout the year.Continue reading
