The weather is starting to really get cold which means it is time to start breaking out the sweaters and ladling out bowls of delicious chili. Paleo chicken chili is hearty and full of flavor. It is the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold, winter day. It makes a bunch too so you can look forward to leftovers!

BBQ Bacon Chicken Skewers and Dipping Sauce

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dr Pepper®. Game Day Greats brought to you by Kroger. The opinions and text are all mine.

College football season has started and that means lots of game watching and tailgating has started at our house. We started with the opening game of our favorite team and plan to host homegating parties almost every weekend we have a game! Of course, no game day is complete without delicious snacks to eat in between plays. We love having people over to watch the games and seeing what everyone brings to share. And, of course, I like to make sure there are items on our food table that are one of a kind and never seen before! One of my recent favorites were the BBQ chicken bacon skewers we served.

Strawberry Oreo Cake Mix Cookies

My daughter has started watching all the youtube videos about baking. It is a girl and her mom baking these ridiculous cakes but she loves it. I love that it has inspired her to want to spend more time in the kitchen. When she asked to bake something recently, I was already brainstorming ideas for the Cooking for the Cure blog hop to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Of course, pink is the signature color for Breast Cancer Awareness so we decided to make strawberry Oreo cake mix cookies.

TBT: S’mores Pizza

The Just Us Four household is filled with s’mores lovers. We even keep s’mores in a jar so we can quickly get our s’mores fix. Or, when I have time on the weekends, I might make s’mores donuts. Our favorite thing by far though is s’mores pizza. It is perfect for dessert on a weeknight or if you are throwing a party. You won’t find anyone who will turn it down. 

S'mores Pizza is the most amazing dessert you will ever make. Everyone will want a piece {or two}!

Lemon Tuna Linguine

Quick and easy meals are a must in our house. I like things that require just a few dishes but still taste great. I recently made lemon tuna linguine, using Bumble Bee® Chunk White Albacore tuna, for dinner and loved it! We are always huge pasta fans so being able to add some extra protein into one of our favorite dishes just took it from good to great.

Lemon tuna linguine is the perfect easy recipe for any night of the week. It takes 5 ingredients and 15 minutes to get you a delicious, protein packed meal.

Pumpkin Orange Crescent Rolls

I am excited to work with Minute Maid® to bring you these thoughts and recipe. While this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Do you ever feel like you are always falling behind? You see that mom {or dad} who just seems to have it all together and feel just ever so slightly inadequate. As a working mom of two kids, I get that feeling all the time. I live in a place where most moms stay at home and seem to have endless amounts of time to plan playdates, volunteer at school, supply cupcakes for the bake sale and 1,000 other things. Of course, they also manage to have their hair and makeup perfect while doing it. Me, I’m happy to have lunches packed on time and a decent breakfast for the kids. While some moms are making homemade cinnamon rolls and pancakes every morning, we tend to be more cereal eaters in our house because who has the time. I know I probably won’t ever have time to make my kids pancakes on a busy weekday morning but I can make them pumpkin orange crescent rolls that will bake while I struggle with tangles in hair and forgotten paperwork in backpacks.

TBT: Overnight Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Welcome to September! I had to laugh when I saw a something on Facebook that referenced how everything would turn into pumpkins come September 1st. I know, as a blogger, we start thinking in pumpkin terms around mid-July so we’ll be ready but I always wonder if everyone else gets annoyed by pumpkin so early. So, I asked on Facebook what you guys would prefer to see today and overnight pumpkin pie French toast beat out the competition!

This overnight pumpkin pie french toast is the perfect fall breakfast! Do a little prep the night before and then wake up to a breakfast that is amazingly delicious and filled with pumpkin flavor.

Spicy Pan Fried Noodles with Shrimp

I might be slightly obsessed with take-out noodles. I am totally that person you see in the movies eating them straight out of the little white boxes straight from the refrigerator. I always get our place to add a little extra spice to mine and not a single noodle goes to waste. Of course, I save it for the weekends when I am not trying to eat most Paleo 😉 In our efforts to make more home cooked meals, I started making spicy pan fried noodles at home.
