Cheesy Sausage Dip

I’ve recently decided that I have a love/hate relationship with fall. Hate because I know winter is inevitably around the corner. Love because nothing beats snuggling in a sweatshirt in the morning and then lapping up the warm sun in the afternoon. I adore apple season and fall baking and those crisp, cool nights that make for great sleeping weather. I love college football and all the food that goes with it, which means I’m always on the hunt for new appetizers. I made this Cheesy Sausage Dip last weekend, and I’m not sure why it hadn’t hit my radar screen earlier. And just to make sure you don’t make the same mistake, I’m here to tell you that you should make this Cheesy Sausage Dip TODAY.

Easy Pulled Beef Sandwiches have been a family favorite for years! Entertaining made easy.

Easy Pulled Beef Sandwiches

Fall is always a busy time in our house. Between back to school, sporting activities, college football games, and both of the kids’ birthdays, that’s a lot of fun packed into a few short months. It also means we have a lot of people at our house for weekend meals. So I tend to rely on a handful of dependable, easy meals to serve that don’t create a lot of prep work for me. You know those go-to meals you count on to feed a crowd? Easy Pulled Beef Sandwiches is one of those meals and fits the bill perfectly. The recipe involves 3 ingredients and about 5 hours of hanging out in the oven or slow cooker. The result is juicy, flavorful pulled beef that you can top however you want. Barbecue sauce, melted cheese or our favorite, horseradish sauce. I love that I can make ahead of time and serve it the next day or pop it in the freezer for later.

Caramel Apple Rolls. Enough said, right?

I could stop right there, and everyone would be happy, especially at our apple-lovin’ house. Except I need you to know how ridiculously easy these Caramel Apple Rolls are to make. Sure you need to wait for them to get nice and fluffy before you bake them, but it’s worth every second. I used frozen sweet dough to cut the prep time and having to futz with yeast. So if waiting is the hardest part of these Caramel Apple Rolls, sign me up.

Easy Baked Chicken Chimichangas take the guesswork out of dinner and put a smile on your kids’ faces all at the same time! 

Easy Baked Chicken Chimichangas Now I know a lot of your kids have already started school, but for us that first day is TODAY. The bus stop will be full of excitement by the kids and the parents. I know that my kids are definitely ready for that big yellow bus to drive up. Me? I’m ready for some uninterrupted work time (and an end to the bickering) but not ready for the summer weather to end.
