Almond Pinecones

This is fun recipe that is almost too pretty to eat.  I said almost because one bite and you'll gobble them up.   A perfect recipe to make with kids!

Pumpkin Granola Bars {No-Bake}

We have been creating new twists on our No Bake Granola Bars recipe posted last month and I love this autumn flavor combo of pumpkin and cranberry.  This is a great recipe to make with kids, we made them recently in my Petite Chefs class and they were a lot of fun!  The kids got sticky and had huge smiles on their faces..success!

Vanilla Bean Applesauce

Between trips to the apple orchards and Bebe B's quest to find the "biggest" apple ever we have had a house loaded with apples this fall (I mean LOADED). We have had a great time creating new recipes for them. Warning: this recipe will make your house smell AMAZING!!  It makes a wonderful accompaniment to fall dinners or a warm breakfast!

Autumn Popcorn Balls

When I was little my grandmother made popcorn balls at the holidays. Sticky, sweet deliciousness! I set out to create a “healthy” version of the recipe that could be a festive autumn treat. The girls and I made ours to look like pumpkins and used dried blueberries for jack-o-lantern faces. The result was a cute and tasty snack. Be prepared for your kids to get a little messy with this recipe, but it’s worth it I promise. The girls had so much fun making these that I couldn’t even snap any pictures of them making the pumpkins (we were all too sticky). Yet, sometimes living in the moment is better than photos.

Sweet Potato Squash Cakes

This is a great savory pancake made of...veggies!  These are one of our favorite ways to have breakfast for dinner (or brinner as we call it in our house).  Both girls devoured them the first time I made them and do so every time I make them.

Mini Caramel Apple Pops

This recipe is the perfect size for little ones. I proudly showed my girls how to eat them in one bite, which they loved. The caramel in this recipe never gets too hard or sticky so it’s easy on little teeth...
