Fall is one of my favorite seasons for cooking. I love the fall staples of squash or pumpkin, and the choice of seasonings to compliment are endless! I’ve been trying to incorporate more spice into Jet’s menu. Adding in different herbs and spices is a great way to broaden your baby’s taste buds and transition them into family dinners. Roasting is amy favorite method of cooking in the fall. There’s nothing more delicious than a big plate of roasted seasonal vegetables and they work great for both baby and family. Here are a few of my favorite fall recipes for baby. I always buy local and seasonal and these are great recipes your whole family will enjoy.

Dressing a baby for fall can have it’s challenging moments. When the weather goes from freezing in the morning to sunny and warm in the afternoon, layers are the key to keeping your baby comfortable and dressed appropriately. A light tee, jeans and beanie have been my go to for Jet these days. I’ll throw a flannel around his waist or in the diaper bag for another layer in case I need it and put him in a light jacket in the mornings. I love the fleece or sweatshirt lined jackets for extra warmth. I layer because it avoids the heavy coat that can be so cumbersome and hard to wear in a car seat, and allows you a little more time until you are pulling those out in the winter months. A hat is always a great extra piece for warmth to keep in the diaper bag as well in case it’s windy or you find yourself in the shade more.

Husband and wife team, Jeska & Dean Hearne, created The Future Kept with a primary goal “to lead and inspire more people to think about and carefully choose the items they have in their lives.” Out of a desire for people to purchase quality, story telling pieces, The Future Kept is “an online purveyor of well designed, durable, meticulously chosen goods.” The Hearne’s carefully source items from independent designers, maker and artisans who are creating products that are better for our world. Their hope is to encourage people to make more sustainable and ethical choices without sacrificing beauty and function. I have found this site to be the perfect resource for unique, beautifully crafted gifts and home goods. Each piece feels truly special and one of a kind and will have you feeling proud of the purchases you make.
