Fall Recipe Round-Up + A Giveaway!

One of my favorite times of year officially started on Saturday. Fall. Autumn. I love the changing of the seasons and I love living in the Midwest where I get to experience four distinct seasons. I love the cool mornings and evenings, all the smells associated with fall (campfires, pumpkin, cinnamon, etc.), how the landscape changes, and freshly baked bread, soups, stews, and casseroles just seem to taste better this time of year. Fall feels good, tastes good, and smells good.

If Pinterest is an indicator of people’s flavor preferences, I would say people are going gaga over pumpkin and apple flavors right about now. Here are a few of my favorite pumpkin and apple recipes I’ve made over the years.

1. Curried Pumpkin & Ginger Scones –Me oh my! I crave these all fall/winter.
2. Pumpkin Cheesecake –It was devoured quickly no time for a before shot. Trust me it was perfectly delicious!
3. Pumpkin Æbleskiver –My twist on the Danish treat.
4. Low Fat Pumpkin Bars –A swirly pumpkin cream cheese bar that only has 67 calories!

5. Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup –One of my favorite fall soups. I could eat this once a week all season.

6. Creamy Buttercup Pasta –My girls thought this was macaroni and cheese. They loved it!

7. Apple Brie Pie –If you haven’t had this combination you MUST try it immediately.
8. Apple Pie with Strudel Topping — This strudel topping is one of my favorites.
9. Applesauce Pancakes –Using a homemade applesauce to top pancakes instead of maple syrup
10. Apple Fritters –Homemade Donuts! Do I need to say anything else? 😉
