French toast is the gold-standard of slow Saturdays – a hot cup of coffee in one hand, a sizzling skillet on the stove, and Billie Holiday crooning in the background. There’s nothing like the soothing repetition of whisking eggs and cream, cutting rich egg bread into impossibly thick slices, combining the two, and watching the toast sizzle in a pool of butter. That is the dream until you have two toddlers begging for breakfast before your feet find your slippers.

The Best Time to Go to the Pumpkin Patch with Kids
There are some things I never did before I became a mom, and one of them is pumpkin picking. (Or really any fruit picking, for that matter.) It just wasn’t something we did when I was growing up, but now I look forward to it every year because my kids love it so much. My 4-year-old has been asking to go for the last six months. It’s that much of an occasion for him. Just like any activity with children, pumpkin picking can be stressful if you don’t plan ahead.

The 12 Best Fall Items I Spotted in Target’s Dollar Playground This Week
Everyone knows the best part of any Target store is Bullseye’s Playground (aka the Dollar Playground, as we refer to it here, although not everything is technically a dollar).

Where the section really shines, in my opinion, is with holiday- or seasonal-themed wares.

Why I Eat Squash Twice a Week in the Fall and Winter
When the pumpkins go on the porch in October and November, squash goes on my menu. From acorn to butternut to spaghetti, I eat squash when it first comes into season about twice per week. By mid-November, I’m over it … until next year. Putting squash on the menu is an easy way to solve the question of what’s for dinner on the weekdays between the holidays. Versatile squash has me covered. Perhaps the biggest turnoff people have when cooking winter squash is the tough skin.

There’s something about having a big bottle of fresh apple cider in your fridge all fall that feels oddly reassuring. Maybe it’s the fact that a taste of the season is always just a glass away, or that it always feels like a treat because it’s only during these few short months that cider makes a regular appearance in your kitchen. But after a few glasses of sweet, pure cider, it’s fun to play around a little with the bottle.

Recipe: Balsamic & Mustard Glazed Chicken Thighs and Figs
Lean into fresh fig season while you can — it’s slow to arrive and quick to leave. If you’re lucky enough to live in a region where they are easy to come by, you likely already know this and are eating them by the handful. For the rest of us, where the arrival of figs means only displays of pints from California at the grocery store, we often don’t know the glories because frankly, those shipped containers just aren’t as good.
