Favorite Fall Recipes

In my opinion, fall is one of the best seasons for cooking and eating. Harvest provides the bounty to cook with and hungry appetites, whetted by the cold weather, are eager to devour the fruits of the kitchen. Here are our favorites:



Rustic Apple Tart: I love to make these tarts because they are easier than a pie, and you can get two of them from one recipe of pie crust. Apple pie is a perennial favorite and a must for the autumn.



Spicy Butternut Curry: this was a random selection from a squash cookbook that turned out to be a winner. I served it to company as well as just to our family.



Spiced Cider Punch: We enjoyed this at a friend's wedding and then used it for parties here at home. It is easy, seasonal, and very delicious.



Roman Apple Cake: This was most likely the first apple recipe I ever made growing up and it has stuck around as my go-to for a comfort cake.



Treacle Scones: these scones are filled with the scents of autumn and perfect for tea time on a windy wet day.

BEET, GOAT CHEESE, & AVOCADO SALAD: This was such an unexpected and fabulous combination of flavors.

PUMPKIN DESSERTS: Pretty much anything pumpkin tends to be my favorite! The pumpkin cake, pumpkin bars, and pumpkin cheesecake are all wonderful.

CRANBERRY CHESS PIE: I stumbled on this recipe a few years ago and it's become a family favorite.


PUMPKIN PANCAKES & MAPLE BACON: While I didn't love how the photo turned out, we have continued to return to this pancake recipe.  Very fallish!
