  • Pumpkin Beer Pretzels with Chipotle Queso...everyone’s favorite game-day snack. These are the BEST pretzels (soft, doughy, buttery and with the slightest hints of beer and autumn), and yes, that dip is pretty delicious too. Sharing these pretzels along with 30 of the top most popular HBH fall recipes on the blog today. SO MANY GOOD ones. Linked in profile. What are you guys making first?? What are you most excited for?? 🍎🍂🎃🍁 #eatingfortheinsta #f52grams #instayum #pumpkin #softpreztel
  • Creamy Butternut Squash Alla Vodka Pasta. Because Monday night is always better with a cozy pasta. I mean, right? This is just like classic alla vodka, but minus the tomato and plus roasted butternut squash. It's creamy, warming, and finished off with salty, crispy prosciutto bread crumbs. So. Good. And since it's Monday, that's all my brain has has to say...sharing the recipe on HBH today (linked in profile) AND making this over on my stories tonight too. Get at it. #eatingfortheinsta #f52grams #instayum #butternutsquash #pasta
  • It’s officially apple season and I’m so excited to be apart of @krogerco zero hunger | zero waste campaign. The Kroger family brands are making efforts across their stores to reduce waste and even something as simple as baking with “flawed” produce can help work towards a more sustainable future. Personally? I look for the flawed produce when creating new recipes. I love the character each “flaw” adds. You’d never know I used a few bruised apples to bake this apple cider pandowdy (an apple pie, but with a lot more of a “caramel” like sauce and a crust that is beyond perfect). It’s just as sweet and delicious as it looks. Find the recipe on HBH and make sure to shop @krogerco for seasonal produce. #sponsored #zerohungerzerowaste #apples
  • Instant Pot Broccoli Cheddar and Zucchini Soup. It’s cozy, but healthier than the average broccoli cheddar soup, easy, and so delicious.

Perfect Sunday night...but really any chilly night works. PS. it's better than Panera's. It's true. Slow cooker and stove top directions are on HBH (linked in profile). ..
