Living in Utah, my family has learned to embrace the cold winter months.  We love the outdoors, and come hot or cold, it is always nice to get outside and enjoy family time!

We recently had our first big snowstorm here in Utah!  As soon as the first big snowfall hits, our kids are chomping at the bit to get outside and play in the snow, and of course, build a snowman!  I always love seeing how excited they are for the fresh fallen snow!

We successfully made our first family snowman of the year!  He might be the cutest one yet, and the kids promptly named him “Frosty!”  We came in from the frigid air, and warmed up with a nice warm bowl of cauliflower cheese soup, complete will all the fixings!  We teamed up with Modern Atelier to capture our fun family time in this video, and it is something I will cherish in the years to come!  I hope you enjoy it too!

When the Fall and Winter roll around, I still love to eat fresh green salads.  I love to include a few fall inspired ingredients into the salad recipe.  I have been making a variation of this salad for years, and I just love the addition of Roasted Butternut Squash!  It is the perfect way to bring fall flavors right into the salad, and it is also such a unique ingredient that makes the salad taste amazing, as well as look beautiful!

I don’t know about you, but the second the cooler weather hits, and the crisp fall air rolls into the valley, then it is soup season from here on out! All day long, I am over here craving soup!  
French Onion Soup Sargento Cheese

Today I am partnering with Sargento Cheese to share my favorite French onion soup recipe!  I just loved how it turned out!  I think the flavor is deep, robust and spot on!  Sargento Sliced Swiss Cheese, paired with their Artisan Blends Shredded Swiss Cheese is the perfect addition and finishing touch to the soup, and the gooey cheese with the baguette croutons makes for such tasty soup!

French Onion Soup Recipes with Sargento Swiss Cheese

For our Fall Family dinner this year, I decided to prepare a French onion soup!  There is not much that is as comforting as a bowl of French onion soup with that nice gooey warm cheese and crouton!  It’s a favorite among the adults and kids!  To add a little twist on and add a little spooky flair, I decided to surprise the kids with a few little ghoulish eyes to top their soup, and they just thought it was so fun!  Just a few little adjustments, and they are so pleased!  I love seeing how excited they get about the little things!

I love that we have kept this tradition alive over the years, and the kids think it is so fun to have an otherwise regular family dinner be a little more dressed up, and festive than normal!  I love to sprinkle little goodies throughout the table, and serve some fresh apple cider!  They made cheers all throughout the dinner!  I just love something to celebrate, and most of all having fun traditions and making lasting memories to look back on in years to come!
