Fall is Here ...

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Crisp air, beautiful colors, falling leaves, brisk walks, and a time to start making hot meals and snacks. I would love to share your favorite recipes for fall here on the blog.   Do you have a fun recipe that you and your kids like to make?

Recipes for dips, treats, soups, stews, chili, or whatever your fall favorites are. Send them to me at blogeditor@storiesforchildrenpublishing.com or terri.forehand@gmail.com

Who knows, we may even gather enough great recipes to put together an EBook for our readers. So join the fun and bring it on.

Here is a quick hot dip for fall:

Harvest Cheese Dip

1 large package of cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Teaspoon onion powder
1 Teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Optional: 1/4 cup cooked and crumbled bacon, or 1/4 cup chopped tomato, or 1/4 cup chopped green pepper

Mix the softened cream cheese, sour cream, seasonings, veggies, and 1/2 of the shredded cheddar cheese in a oven safe dish. Sprinkle the remainder of the shredded cheese on top. Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve hot with crackers.

Great snack for watching the football games on a Sunday afternoon.

Looking forward to sharing your favorites with the readers. Send them along soon. Fall is here.
