Busy moms (and dads) of the world unite! Idk about yall, but there is just something about the fall time that makes me want to spend all day in the kitchen. Maybe it's how the cold, crisp weather is perfectly offset by the warmth of the stove, or maybe it's how good my house smells when I pull a fresh batch of cinnamon rolls out of the oven. Either way, nothing puts me in an autumn mood more than cooking delicious, fall-themed homemade meals for my family. Let's be honest, though. Between writing, working a full time job, and taking care of my daughter, this author mom barely has time to do the dishes on a regular basis, let alone cook a three-course meal every night! Who's with me? I bet there's a lot of us, doing our best to juggle all the things we have to do every day while still looking like super-parents (even if our outward appearances don't always match how we feel on the inside lol). But fear not! For this fall, I have decided to lend a helping hand to my fellow busy parents, whether you're an author like me or not (bc no matter what we do, we all get overwhelmed at times, and the holidays are no exception) by sharing some of my favorite dishes to make this time of year here on the blog. Every single one of these items are super easy to make so you can multi-task while you mix, cook quickly so you can either prepare them ahead of time or whip them together when you get home from work, and have been picky-princess taste tested and approved! I hope you enjoy them, and I would love to know which ones were your family's favorites! And if you have any easy-peasy recipes of your own you'd like to share, post them in the comments! I'm always looking for new things to try, and I'm sure others are as well. Happy fall and happy baking, yall!
