This is serious autumn flavors at their best! Sisters Know Best has found a way to make your own that’s fast and easy and delicious! Imagine on a blustery fall day that you’re sitting under a warm quilt reading your favorite novel with a cup of coffee flavored with your homemade pumpkin coffee creamer? Yes. We can see it!

Kids aren’t the only ones who dress up and have fun on Halloween. It’s a fun holiday for adults, too – and costumes are just the beginning. Dressing up and going to a Halloween party with your adult friends while the kids are out collecting candy is a great way to relax and channel your inner child. The right Halloween snacks and drinks make every Halloween party even more fun. It’s better than trick-or-treating for candy and gives you a chance to feel like a kid again. [Read more…]
It’s fall! It’s also time to make goodies for back-to-school events, harvest parties, and Halloween. These easy Rice Krispies Pumpkins are quick to make and will crown you Queen of Cool Food! We guarantee it!! The idea is simple and can be varied as much as you care.
Emily’s children are older now, and cereal isn’t always in the cupboard. Furthermore, Rice Krispies cereal was hardly a favorite except for making those ooey gooey bars all children crave. While Krispies weren’t available, Rice Chex were. Crushing this cereal resulted in something that would work well. Experimenting is always a good thing in the kitchen so she gave those a whirl.

Thai food is one of my favorite discoveries! But when we order take out it’s easily $70! This meal was $10 and we ate it twice. PLUS it’s part of the Sisters Know Best Freezer Meal Series so I have another in my freezer for another time. The peanut butter gives it a creamy flavor and adding the vegetables makes this Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peanut Sauce recipe a delicious well rounded meal!
I LOVE corn chowder and every winter I crave it. I realize the winter is over, the snow is melting but I made this recipe a month ago and am just now getting around to sharing it with all of you. It’s so easy to make! I’ve heard chowders are tricky because of curdling the milk and you need to watch it closely but this easy crockpot corn chowder recipe changed my life! I’m looking forward to experimenting with other chowders over the summer like seafood chowder. Mmmm mmm! If you have any favorite recipes, we would love to hear about them! Please, pop on over to our Facebook page and share! [Read more…]
The colder it gets out, the more I want to make comfort foods. This American Chop Suey recipe is one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made and one of the most satisfying comfort foods there is. The only way I know how to cook it is in large amounts so we usually freeze half and eat half. If you like chop suey, you will love this hearty recipe!
Here’s what I did:
No matter how you carve, slice, steam, roast, drink it, I LOVE PUMPKIN! (Carve as in pumpkins, slice as in pie, steam as in cook, roast as in seeds, drink as in latte….)
This year I carved one pumpkin and cooked another. I wish I had taken a picture of my carved pumpkin before I fed it to the buffalo. Next year…. My other pumpkin I cooked in a way similar to how I steam squash. Scoop out the seeds and goo in the middle, peel, chunk it up, and steam it until soft. I had SO MUCH pumpkin! I used some of it for my healthy organic pumpkin brownies and some of it I used for these scrumptious whoopie pies.
Here’s what I did:
This pickled beets recipe, while not only fun to make, is also delicious! Yesterday I cleaned up the rest of my garden. As soon as it’s tilled, it will officially be put to bed. Ahh. Most days I’m more tired than my garden and wish for a “long winter’s nap”. Of course, with lots of produce canned and frozen, my winter will be filled with delicious home-grown meals. Having pickled beets at the ready is one of my favorite delicacies!! [Read more…]
On my windowsill above the sink sit jars of Fire Cider and herb flavored vinegar. Now is the time to start these if you want them ready for gift giving during December. Use Fire Cider daily to kick-start your day. A teaspoon – tablespoon should do the trick. It may also be used to help your body fight common colds. One sip will heat your insides! Herbal vinegar is a fun ingredient for salad dressings or marinades. Let your creative mind play with what herbs to use. [Read more…]
This fall soup recipe is our favorite! It’s an Ayurvedic Squash Apple Soup! While it’s great to make it with newly harvested ingredients knowing everything is fresh, you can – and should – make this anytime. And make it often! Preparing and eating this warms you on the inside almost as much as this soup.
When people talk of doing something from start to finish, we always think of planting the seed, tending the crop, harvesting the produce, and preparing nutritious food. We also think of collecting buffalo fiber in the field, having it cleaned and carded, spinning it into yarn, and knitting socks – but that’s another blog post.
Following are directions for the most delicious, nutritious fall soup recipe!
Pumpkin Seeds are one of the best parts of Halloween! There’s nothing like slow roasting pumpkin seeds on a cool crisp October day while the family carves their pumpkins and decorate for the Fall. Below is my recipe for how to roast pumpkin seeds:
1. Select a pumpkin.
Remove the insides (pulp and seeds). Creating a jack-o-lantern is optional but a lot of fun!
I made this easy Mexican Spaghetti Squash recipe for my family, and they went nuts for it. I actually had to go buy more squash to do it again! The kidney beans make it seem like a meat dish while the zesty sauce adds a lot of flavor to it. It’s a healthy recipe but has the comforts of a hearty meal we crave in the cooler months.
It’s harvest time in the garden. Here’s one idea for using up the bounty: a healthy, fairly fast, colorful Garden Vegetable Omelette! I LOVE fresh veggies, but they can be a bit overwhelming at times….
