I’m over at Keeper of the Home today sharing a post on 5 Real Foods to Help You Prevent a Cold or Flu.

I share some great tips on how I like to keep my family healthy.  I still can’t believe that we haven’t come down with any significant illness since January of this year…fingers crossed ;)

Head on over because I’m also sharing with you my mami’s recipe for a condensed version of puchero andaluz.

Slow Cooked Cider Pork Chops with Pumpkin and Apples | myhumblekitchen.com

I know I’ve mentioned that fall isn’t my favorite season but my, oh my, do I ever love the seasonal foods in this time.

Pumpkin, squash, cider, apples, spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and…pork. Yummy, fatty, heritage breed, pastured pork. If you haven’t yet purchased your hog this year, this is your reminder that it’s the season to start checking in with your family farmer for good, local, and sustainably raised pork.

With everything good about fall in hand, I made a simple and humble meal in my slow cooker.

This meal would taste just as warm and comforting braised on the stovetop for a couple hours; however, I made it in my slow cooker to accommodate our busy soccer schedule. The boys are still playing hard so it’s nice to come home to a warm dinner, fully prepared.

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookies with Dark Chocolate | myhumblekitchen.com

This is a post in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and The National Peanut Board.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Around 3pm each afternoon, my boys are usually starving.  Or as they say, STARVING!

They’re not really – they’re just looking for something to pop into their mouths. I’m not a big fan of snacks, especially giving my children anything to eat right before suppertime. However, sometimes I like to give them a nourishing sweet treat when the hour of starvation arrives just to make them smile and it gives us an excuse to homeschool together in the kitchen.

Just this week, the boys and I have been discussing the topic of salvation and how important it is to share our faith so that others may come to know Jesus. In our morning study we were talking about some ideas on how they could share their faith to their friends, even complete strangers. Big Brother and Big Cousin came up with an idea to bake cookies and take them to a nursing home where they could share them with grandma’s and grandpa’s. They thought it would be a great way to share God’s love and maybe open some doors to talk about salvation.

I thought it was a great idea and the boys loved that they would be able to take in a bit of a sweet treat as well…especially since they were starving!

An Easy Dessert for a Fall Gathering: Super Simple Apple Cobbler | myhumblekitchen.com

Now that the weather is starting to cool and we’re a month into homeschool, it’s starting to feel like fall.

To me, fall is everything squash, spice, pie, and cobblers. As much as I love to make a good pie, sometimes I want to make something quick when I have a large gathering at my home.

This super simple apple cobbler is one that everyone seems to enjoy. It tastes of apples and spice and everything nice.

I especially like this dessert and make it throughout the year because it only takes me about ten minutes to make.
