Fall Food

If you've been keeping up with Of Such is the Kingdom the last few weeks, you might have begun to wonder--is this lady still feeding her family? During the summer it seemed that all I did was post about food (we must eat more in the summer or something) but these days it's just homeschool and prayer. : ) School lunches were the last food post, and I'm not sure that can even be counted as a recipe!
Well, to answer your unspoken question, yes, we are still eating around here, but the meals have become a bit less planned and a lot more scramble.
So I need some inspiration and organization in the food department, and where else but pinterest would I go to look for those? Here are some of my recent pins that I've either made already or will make soon:
I don't know if the fam will go for this one, but cabbage + olive oil, lemon juice and bacon bits sounds wonderful to me!

I'm very interested in making this "rise in the fridge" artisan bread.

Yes! to Cheesy Calzones! (but I would use homemade bread dough...)

I just made these cinnamon apples with some apples my dad picked up for me from a local market. Yum! This is a great way to welcome fall!

Using avocado for sauce is brilliant. 
I can't wait to try this!

I'm still looking for a quinoa recipe that the whole family loves...
this one might be it!

I used this dough recipe the other night for our pizza. It was great except for the salt. Go easy on the salt (maybe half of what the recipe calls for)

Here's another recipe I'm excited about--easy and it gives me a way to present butternut squash to the other four members of my fam in a way they might just appreciate!
I guess cooler weather makes me want to bake...
This morning's muffin was a whole wheat--Greek yogurt mix something like this recipe. I did a bit of tweaking and here's what I came out with:

Whole Wheat Muffins
  • 1 cup AP flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool in the muffin pan on a wire rack.
