Peach cobbler in a jar

There is something about Fall that has me excited to start baking again, especially my families favorite, Peach Cobbler. I have so many childhood memories walking through the doors from school and smelling the deliciousness coming out of my mom’s kitchen. Nothing comforts my soul more than being able to do the same for our boys.

In honor of Fall quickly approaching, I am sharing my Mom’s homemade peach cobbler for this years Autumn Abounds Party with some of my favorite bloggers!

Stuffed Mushroom Recipe

For the Fourth of July block party, my oldest requested stuffed mushrooms so of course  I had to oblige.  It is one of the easiest recipe’s and I promise it is a huge crowd pleaser.

How to make stuffed mushrooms Ingredients

12 whole fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoon minced onion
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (less or more depending on how hot you like it)

Stuffed Mushrooms recipe


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Carefully break off stems and chop.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, diced onion and chopped mushroom stems to the skillet. Fry until any moisture has disappeared. Set aside to cool.
When garlic and mushroom mixture is no longer hot, stir in cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, onion powder and cayenne pepper. Mixture should be very thick. Using a little spoon, fill each mushroom cap with a generous amount of stuffing. Arrange the mushroom caps on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the mushrooms are piping hot and liquid starts to form under caps.

Sometimes I will add a little bit of bread crumbs on top of each mushroom the last 5 minutes of cooking which is super yummy.

Italian caprese panini

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese and Safeway. All opinions are 100% mine.

I absolutely love a delicious panini sandwich, especially one with fresh basil and heirloom tomatoes drizzled with a bit of olive oil.  The first time I had one of these classics, Ray and I were in Italy and wow was it fabulous.  That was our last big trip13 years ago before starting a new chapter in our lives, family!  Now, our boys have a love for these healthy  sandwiches.

Panini Sandwich


1 French baguette

Fresh basil leaves

1 heirloom tomato

KRAFT  cheese 

Extra-virgin olive oil

Balsamic Glaze

Optional ~Turkey meat

Ingredients for Panini Sandwich

Arrange ingredients between slices of bread, drizzle the balsamic glaze and brush with Olive oil. For the cheese I chose KRAFT mexican cheese for the kids panini’s and KRAFT mozzarella for my sandwich in the new stand-up pouches found at Safeway.

Von’s is converting all of their KRAFT shredded cheeses to the new new stand up pouches which makes scooping and pouring easier than ever. You still get the same amount of cheese, but less packaging, bonus for everyone including the environment. 

Panini Sandwich

Grill until golden brown and melted.

The result is a delicious medley of flavors that’s quick and easy to enjoy that the whole family will love!
