Slow cookers change lives. If you don't have one of these yet, you might want to get on that. Slow cookers make cooking after a long day a reality. Imagine coming home and dinner is already cooked and warm. There are many days when I really want to cook, but I'm just tired and don't want to spend an hour cooking a delicious warm meal. Slow cookers rescue.

Polenta and Chickpeas with Marinara

Growing up with a lot of Italian food I somehow managed to not experience polenta. My family was all about the pasta. It wasn't until I was older that I experienced polenta and then started to use it more in my cooking. I will always love pasta and cook it, but sometimes I want polenta with fresh herbs and marinara sauce. Because yes.

This recipe gets a little crazy and adds chickpeas to the pile. Life is all about choices, and today I choose chickpeas.

It's a pumpkin craze in my kitchen. Canned pumpkin is going in EVERYTHING. I already provided a warning. Make sure to get a bunch of cans of pumpkin and put pumpkin in everything, because it's fall and we can do what we want. I'm drinking warm apple cider with cinnamon in it right now. Fall is also a time for adding cinnamon to everything.

Alright I am one of those people that gets excited about pumpkin flavored things in the fall. I’m not sorry about this. I think if you are someone that doesn’t like pumpkin things, you should be the sorry one. Pumpkin makes fall. Pumpkin is fall.

I haven’t been posting many recipes lately, so I’ll apologize for that. I am going to share more recipes, but I’ll warn you that most of them are going to involve pumpkin. This is what I’m into right now. Fall makes me want to bake and cook, a lot. Let’s get into this pumpkin pie french toast.

These ingredients are for real.

Rocky Mountain National Park

Posted by Tamara

Laura was very serious about seeing mountains while we were in Colorado. By the time we left the airport with our rental car it was dark outside. I kept telling her that you could, in fact, see the mountains from the airport but I apparently was not convincing enough. Not that you need to know, but we proceeded to drink a lot of wine that night and at some point our conversation turned into mountains.
