Fall baking season is in full swing! If you are anything like me, you spend summer counting down the days until there’s a chill in the air and you can break out those sweatshirts. Whether you like it warm or cold, we can all agree that fall brings wonderful flavors with it. One of my favorite fall memories is cooking in the kitchen with my dad.

Time for a Breakfast Recipe Round-up!

My husband and three-year old LOVE breakfast. As soon as they wake up, they head straight to the kitchen. During the work week, we don’t have as many opportunities to sit down as a family with a large breakfast, so we tend to opt for quicker options on those days. On the weekends I favor making recipes that require a few more ingredients and take additional time to prepare, especially if we are entertaining guests.

Spend Smart. Eat Smart.

If You Do Not Eat Breakfast, Neither Will Your Children

There is research to back up the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”.   Breakfast contributes to higher achievement, lower rates of absence and tardiness, increased concentration, fewer calories, and better nutrition for youth and adults.   We also know that children learn from watching parents.  It stands to reason that if you do not model eating breakfast; your children will not get the benefits either.
