Cheddar-Scallion Biscuits -- Easy homemade biscuits filled with layers of melty cheese and sliced scallions. @girlversusdough #girlversusdough #scallions #cheddar #biscuitrecipe

We’re back on the mainland from two weeks in Kauai, Hawaii and to be honest with you, I’m conflicted. I keep going back and forth between wishing I could click my heels and be immediately transported back to the island and its beautiful landscapes and sunny skies and sandy beaches. But now, I’m bundled up here in a scarf and cozy knit blanket with a hot cup of coffee and the leaves outside are brilliant reds and oranges and yellows and I’m fully in love with this fall weather, too. Why can’t there be a place where both seasons can co-exist? I would live there forever and ever if I could.

But since I can’t do that, I’m going to embrace the cooler temps and the fact that I can bake these Cheddar-Scallion Biscuits in the oven without sweating in my kitchen. Though, let’s be real – I would make these biscuits anywhere and everywhere, because they’re worth it.

Blueberry Brioche French Toast Casserole -- Homemade brioche bread, fresh blueberries, and a crumbly oat streusel make this overnight breakfast casserole worthy of a morning meal any day of the week! @girlversusdough #girlversusdough

I meant to post this recipe for blueberry brioche French toast casserole before October came around, but then October came around, and very quickly. I mean seriously, can we even believe it’s October already? I’m still thinking it’s June and school just got out, for crying out loud.

Alas, it is October indeed, and I’m beginning to embrace it. Call me basic, but I am very much a lover of all things fall — the cool air, the colored leaves, the warm drinks, the chunky sweaters and scarves and cozy breakfasts like this blueberry brioche number served with a hot cup of coffee. Yes, please.

Classic Brioche Loaf Bread -- Perfectly soft and fluffy homemade brioche loaf bread. Use it to make sandwiches, French toast, breakfast bakes and more! #briochebread #briocherecipe #briocheFrenchtoast @girlversusdough #girlversusdough

Honestly, what could be better than baking this classic brioche loaf bread in your kitchen? Not much. Not much at all.

Here’s why: This loaf is bonkers delicious. And while yes, it takes a little bit of time and effort to make, the results are SO. VERY. WORTH IT. If you’ve never made homemade bread before, this is a great recipe to get you started. It’s made with simple ingredients, easy (and forgiving!) to assemble, and the flavor is unlike anything you’d ever buy at the grocery store. This is what brioche bread is supposed to taste like, and we are so very happy about it.

Mom's Zucchini Bread -- this is my mom's best-ever zucchini bread! It's moist, dense and full of sweet flavor. #zucchini #zucchinibread #quickbread @girlversusdough #girlversusdough

Happy September, friends! First, can we even believe it’s September?? I cannot. Call me a cliche, but I’m firmly in the this-summer-flew-by camp. I feel like I still need a few good days of dipping myself in the lake, eating drippy ice cream cones and toasting marshmallows for s’mores over a bonfire before I can say bon voyage to this sunny season.

That being said, I also do love me some autumn. Chunky sweaters, cozy scarves, colored leaves, pumpkin spice lattes, crisp air… oh man, it’s so good. But I can wait at least another month or so before fully embracing that situation.

That’s partially why I’m bringing to you today my Mom’s zucchini bread — because to me, this bread is the perfect bridge between summer and fall. It utilizes one of summer’s most prolific crops, but it’s baked into a soft, moist, dense, spice-laden loaf that goes perfectly well with cooler temperatures and warm drinks. It’s one of the most quintessential recipes of my childhood, and I’m amazed it’s taken me this long to bring it to your face.

Slow Cooker Green Chile Pork Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Slaw! So easy and yet so much flavor. These will be your new go-to taco night meal! #easydinner #taconight #slowcooker #crockpot @girlversusdough #girlversusdough

Friends, welcome to the next best taco night recipe of your life: Slow Cooker Green Chile Pork Tacos with Cilantro-Lime Slaw.

Lots of words, not a lot of effort. Lots of flavor, not a lot of work. Lots of yums, not a lot of stress. This is a winner of a dinner all around, IMHO.

What are your go-to dinners on the weekly rotation? Since we are meal planners (a.k.a., I decide what we are going to eat and make a grocery list accordingly so we buy exactly what we need for meals), we tend to pick the same foods every week. This isn’t all bad — I mean, tacos are a weekly occurrence, and since I love tacos, I’m not mad about this at all. What does bug me, though, is when the tacos are the same formula every time: Ground beef + taco seasoning + cheese + veg + sour cream. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a classic taco now and then, but sometimes I need to branch out of my taco shell, so to speak.
