A picnic so ingenious and pretty, total strangers will pin photos of it to Pinterest. (Because you Instagrammed it, shamelessly.) Not that that's the main purpose for this meal!

    I am not a camper, at least not a happy one. That being said, the only thing I really like about camping is the food. Something about a meal being cooking in the great outdoors is totally irresistible and is almost worth the dirt, the dust, the bug bites and outhouses.

    So what is a campfire foodie who doesn't like to camp to do? Why, to try to recreate a camping worthy meal in my own kitchen complete with running water, a ceiling and not a single piece of poison ivy.

    Here is my perfect outdoorsy meal to make at home, pine tree smell and mosquitos not included.

    Ooh, it's been a brutal winter, and we still have weeks to go. How will we ever survive? Through the magic of crock-pot stews, that's how! After trudging home from work through the cold and slush I would really appreciate it if there were a hot meal waiting for me. Why isn't that happening? Because 1. I haven't taught my 10-year-old how to cook yet and because 2. I don't have servants. But there is a work-around! Ye olde crock-pot. Just a little prep before I leave for the day and dinner will be waiting to warm my belly by night. Here's some soul-warming stews we think will hit the spot.

    Now that we're all hunkering down for a cozy week of cooking for the big holiday, you know what sounds delicious? Starting it all off with a stack of pancakes.

This creamy, cheesy, absolutely amazing baked pumpkin fettuccine alfredo, courtesy of How Sweet It Is, is the perfect meal to try as we -- believe it or not -- wind down from pumpkin season and shift into gingerbread, eggnog, and all-things peppermint season.
