From House to Home {Link Party}: Recipes for the New School Year

Winner Meals for Fall

This week I’ve been experimenting with some new recipes, and they haven’t gone over well.  I was trying the “make-ahead frozen and then put in the crock-pot” meals.  They’re too mushy and don’t “present” well.  So, my husband helped me go through my recipes to identify the winners and get a list ready for fall.

Here are my best meals.  I hope to add some photos to the posts (and the rest of the recipes) in the coming months–but only if I can make them look good (like my friend over at A Little Bit Crunchy)!
