Fall Cooking (and Cookbook Round Up)

Fall Cooking (and Cookbook Round Up)

It’s been raining, gray and chilly here the past few days. I even TURNED ON OUR HEAT yesterday. You know what that must mean. Yes, fall is finally here. And it means I’m thinking about all the comforting meals I haven’t had in awhile! ;)

My girls and I are planning to start “family meal-prep days” soon where we’ll all meet up at my house each week to make a big batch of soup or other delicious things.

Have you ever done a big group cooking day like that?

We thought it would be a fun family activity, plus we would all get to go home with our pot of soup or even just our prepared healthy ingredients for that week. YAY! Fun, time-saving and healthy.

I’ve been flipping through our cookbooks for inspiration and found a few others that look so good (some might be “healthier” than others, but still, they all look amazing for fall comfort):

Bowls of Goodness

Natural: Wholesome Recipes for Pure Nourishment

Scandinavian Comfort Food

Easy Soups from Scratch with Quick Breads to Match

Purely Pumpkin

Kale and Caramel (just ordered this one!)

Love Your Lunches

Fall Cooking (and Cookbook Round Up)

Speaking of fall, my girls and I are excited to offer a fun free wellness class on our Pure & Lovely website this Thursday night at 6:30 PM PT / 9:30 PM ET (it will remain available all weekend to view at your leisure). We will be sharing some of our secrets for a happy life with essential oils.

Essential oils definitely improved our family’s life in many awesome ways.

And not in that “hype” sort of way. Cause I’m totally not the hype type. :)

Fall Cooking (and Cookbook Round Up)

Our class is called A Happy Life with Essential Oils (how these little drops can change everything!).

We want you all to have your happiest, healthiest fall ever, so we hope you’ll come to the class and enjoy!

Put the class in your calendar–it begins this Thursday September 21 at 6:30PM PT / 9:30 PM ET.

  1. I’m a huge fan of the Smitten Kitchen cookbook, and I can’t wait for her new one! I also just got a great cookbook that you would probably love for your special night, it’s called Soup Swap. Everything I’m cooking these days is centered around zucchini since it’s coming out of the garden like mad!

  2. Check into Insta-Pot – I love mine! I cook large batches of chicken breasts using chicken broth as the liquid and add celery, carrots and onion. After the chicken is done, the broth is wonderful as a base for cooking rice and other veggies. Then add back the chopped chicken. I also save some chicken for salads and other meals for later in the week. I bought an extra insert and a couple of glass covers. Super easy to store the soup in the refrig and then heat up again the next day. I even cook hard boiled eggs in the pressure cooker – it is easier since you don’t have to watch the pot!

    Good website is pressure cooking today and one of my favorite recipe is the roasted cauliflower and barley risotto – https://www.pressurecookingtoday.com/roasted-cauliflower-barley-risotto/

    Pioneer Woman has great recipes and my favorite is the Burgundy mushrooms. I should be able to use the Insta-Pot slow cooker option for that recipe this fall.

    • Oh, thank you! You know, I bought an Insta Pot last year and RETURNED IT! GAH! I started reading about it and it scared me so I decided I wouldn’t feel confident to use it. But you’re making me second guess that decision, ha! You made cooking with it sound SO GOOD! Now I’m hungry. :) Thank you!

  3. My friends and I do a soup exchange in the fall. We all make 2 soups and freeze them in Ziploc bags. Depending on the number of people and the servings brought we go home with 10+ premade soups to have all fall/winter long. We have also stated giving out the recipes so we can make our favorites at home.

  4. Love my YL essential oils. I’m still in learning mode, but there are some I use on a daily basis, like peppermint, lemon, lavender, tea tree, cedarwood…to name just few. I have a commitment Thursday night, but hope to catch a replay. :)

  5. I love tortilla soup in the fall. This is my favorite recipe; the Worcestershire sauce makes all the difference! http://www.theginghamapron.com/chicken-tortilla-soup/
