Yes. I’m going there. Pumpkin. You know you love it. You want it. You crave it.

How do I know so much about you? It’s kind of scary isn’t it?

It’s because all of a sudden my pumpkin recipes are going crazy. Can anyone say Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Cookies or Overnight Pumpkin Cheesecake French Toast Casserole? You guys all seem to be in the mood for it. I don’t really blame you, I mean it is a fantastic ingredient so why do we only eat it in the fall? Maybe you are a rebel and enjoy it all year long. Go you. I don’t blame you one bit!

Maybe you are looking for a new sweet treat to indulge in this fall. I bet you are dreaming of a soft, chewy cookie loaded with pumpkin and spices then it would be topped off with a fluffy cinnamon frosting. Am I right? I know I am!

Lucky for you today I’m making it happen. I saw your dreams and I met them, embraced them and this is the answer to them all. Just say Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Cookies!

I’m magic.

Unfortunately my magical abilities stop with cookies and do not go onto magically making my house clean or my laundry done. Dang. I thought I was good!

You know what else is pretty cool about this amazing Cinnamon Frost Pumpkin Cookies recipe? The fact that I got to make it with the assistance of my favorite OXO tools of course! They sent me a cute little package full of wonderful tools like their spatulas that I have in about every color plus  a  3-in-1 Egg Separator, Icing Knife, and these cool cookie cutters!

I bet you are wondering why… don’t worry I’ll let you in on the secret!

Brrr it’s been brisk around Minnesota but a little warm up is in the works! I got in the mood last weekend and started my outdoor fall decor, which isn’t much but it’s still fun to get in the mood. I much prefer this type of decorating to Christmas lights when it’s 30 degrees out! That’s when I delegate to the hubs. Not that I didn’t delegate a little to him this time too!

Have a wonderful week!

 I have often said this here on the blog but lunch is the main thing I struggle with. Dinner? Snacks? Breakfast? Appetizers? Dessert? Trust me I’ve got all those nailed. When it comes to lunches I just typically feel uninspired and lazy. Maybe it’s because usually I’m at work and it’s just whatever leftovers I have in the fridge that morning or the fact that on the weekends I just wing it and don’t plan it typically like I do for dinner. Lately I’ve tried embracing lunches and trying new things. New things that make my taste buds dance because obviously we like dancing taste buds here on Julie’s Eats & Treats!

With that being said I still like to eat a lighter lunch so I don’t fall asleep at my desk later in the day, which sometimes I struggle with anyways. This girl can never, ever have enough sleep in her life. Perfect amount for me is about 10 hours and we know that’s not happening between work, life, a child, the gym and some me time we are looking at about 7 hours of sleep!

 I’m lucky because I really enjoy eating salads. Weird right? I bet you would have never thought that. Now don’t get me wrong I need some substance to my salads but they fill me up, have a ton of flavor and don’t weigh me down for the rest of the day!

Bacon Chipotle Mac & Cheese ~ Only One Pot, 6 Ingredients and Ready in 25 Minutes!!

Hi there! I’m Ashley from The Recipe Rebel and I’m super excited to be sharing this incredible recipe here on Julie’s Eats and Treats.

I am a high school teacher and mother to a beautiful two-year-old girl with baby #2 coming mid-December. If that wasn’t crazy enough, it’s my husband’s busy season now, which means that he’s gone 14 hours of the day (or sometimes more!) and quite often I feel like a single-working-blogging-pregnant mother.

It’s a little intense.

And so we need dishes like this one, that are only 6 ingredients — SIX — and they all cook in the same pot in less than 25 minutes.

My girl loves her noodles (“nay-os”). She asks if we’re having noodles at pretty much every meal. So I know that if I put something like this on the table, dinner time is going to go a lot more smoothly. And sometimes, after teaching teenagers all day, that’s not a battle I want to pick.

Quinoa and Tofu Stir-Fry is a healthier version of regular stir-fry that’s still packed with flavor and is an easy week night dinner!

Quinoa and Tofu Stir-Fry is a healthier version of regular stir-fry that's still packed with flavour and is an easy week night dinner!

Hi there! I’m Jessica and I blog at Jessica in the Kitchen, where I share healthy, delicious vegetarian recipes.

Quinoa is a staple in my household – it is so versatile and it’s so delicious on it’s own or when paired with other ingredients. I’m a big fan of stir-fry but wanted a fresh and healthier take on it so I used quinoa and what resulted was a completely delicious surprise! This stir-fry tastes just like your regular stir-fry since quinoa mimics rice almost equally, and is loaded with fresh vegetables sautéed  until flavourful.

I wanted to keep this as close to possible as traditional so I subbed tofu as the meat element and also added eggs. We made this tofu twice in one week because we loved it that much. My favourite part would definitely be the tofu since it crisped up nicely, then the carrots which were soft and filled with flavour. I would definitely recommend this for a week night dish since it’s very easy to put together and can serve as a side or a main dish.  One thing I would definitely recommend is to use quinoa that’s been sitting in the fridge for at least a day – just like day-old rice it works much better in stir-fry.

Quinoa and Tofu Stir-Fry is a healthier version of regular stir-fry that's still packed with flavour and is an easy week night dinner!-2

Quinoa and Tofu Stir-Fry

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 block pressed tofu, sliced into small wedges
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 large carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 3 spring onions, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons liquid aminos or soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine

Instructions

  1. Over medium heat, place a plan with a teaspoon of oil to heat. Break the eggs into the pan, scrambling them and cooking them until just barely cooked. Scrape into a clean bowl and set them aside.
  2. In the same pan, add another teaspoon of oil and add the tofu. You want it to cook on all sides, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown. Increase heat to medium-high and add another teaspoon of oil to the pan. Sear the tofu on all sides, stirring only occasionally and cooking until the tofu is golden-brown on all sides, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the tofu and set aside in another bowl.
  3. Add two teaspoons of oil into the pan, increase the heat to medium high, and add in the quinoa, stirring to coat it and heating it for a few minutes until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the soy sauce, two tablespoons of soy sauce and one tablespoon of rice wine, and garlic into the rice and stir to combine. Add the shredded carrot and stir, allowing to cook until soft, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Next add in the peas until warmed for about 2 minutes, then stir in the eggs, tofu and the spring onions.
  6. Add extra soy sauce to taste if needed and remove from heat. Serve immediately.

Julie’s Easy Meal Plans ~ Simple every day meals for the busy family!!

Fall is HERE in Minnesota. My hubs just told me to shut the windows and keep them shut because we need to keep as much heat inside the house as possible because there is a low of 36 degrees tomorrow night. I shivered then said it’s fireplace season!

One of my favorite things is cuddling up in front of the fireplace at night. There’s just nothing like a real fire burning at night to keep you warm and cozy when it’s nippy out. I say nippy because while I’m all for that type of weather I am NOT for the arctic blast of winter so I’ll focus on the slightly cooler weather right now! That’s why I threw some good comfort food at you this week!

Crock Pot Kickin' Cheesy Beer Smokies ~ Your Favorite Smokies Loaded with Beer Cheese Sauce and Tabasco for a Kick! *I was compensated by Tabasco to create this post. All opinions expressed are completely my own.

Fall is HERE! That means bon fires, cozy sweaters, comfort food and crisp autumn air. Know what else it means? FOOTBALL! Who’s excited for some football? I know I am, well I know I really should be a little more upfront. I am ready for some football food! I adore dips, appetizers and game food. Sunday afternoons can be full of nothing but snacks in my opinion and I’d be one happy girl. The actually football game? Well that’s debatable.

I’ll be honest. Food is more my thing. Sure I will watch football but I’m not some fantasy football following junkie. I’m always loyal to my Minnesota Vikings no matter how horrible they play, which trust me is REAL horrible most of the time. This year there might be hope but in true fashion they’ll screw it up some how. This people, I am used too. Minnesotans are not known for their GREAT athletic teams. It’s just a fact of life.

I’m going to start out his post by whining a little bit so here’s you warning. If you just want to skip the sob story then head on down to the recipe!

Miss K was sick before we left on vacation and then during vacation she got a cold. It started with a lovely runny nose and then during the middle of the night she started coughing. I’m not talking little coughing, but the kind of coughing that sounds like she either will stop breathing or puke from coughing so much. Of course it’s 3 am in hotel and I have nothing to give her. Somehow my child seems to sleep right through it, but Mom is not so I eventually go and get her up to give her some water and try to get her to stop coughing so hard. Let’s just say it was a long, long night for Mom. The next day we went and got something for the next night which helped a little and we were all able to get more sleep.

Sounds like an awesome vacation right?

Honestly it wasn’t THAT bad and we did have fun!

Cheesy Chicken Sandwiches ~ Super Easy Chicken Sandwiches Loaded with a Cheese Sauce!

Have you ever noticed how each family has their own “style” of eating and favorite family recipes that you know will show up at any family gather? I know my family does and I’m not going to lie, if Mom varied to much from the expected favorites we might all rebel a little. There would be a lot of disappointed faces that the holidays! We are so boring that for Christmas we always have chicken breast wrapped in bacon and hash brown potatoes (that I really need to post!) and we all look forward to it including my sister-in-law! Last year I was sick on Christmas, bummer right? I made such a big deal out of missing this meal that my mom actually made me my own “Christmas Re-do” meal in January.

Have I mentioned lately how much my Momma rocks? She does. The hubs likes to remind me I’m spoiled quiet frequently and I just tell him I’m loved, not spoiled. Duh right?
