Happy Fall! This past weekend (Sept. 21st) marked the official start of fall and I’m loving it. The chill in the morning when I walk to the bus stop is the best! :-) Plus, I got to bust out the fall boots. I’m not normally one to jump on trend bandwagons, but I have to say I really want some knee-high cable knit socks to wear under those boots to up the cozy-factor. (Sounds cute right?)
Anyway, I know you don’t come here for fashion commentary. This post is a round-up of fall recipes I’ve put on the blog before, but deserve to get more attention now that I have (slightly) more readers. You newbies might have missed out on these classics!!
For my birthday a couple weekends ago I went apple picking with my in-laws at Stribling Orchard in Virginia. The day was lovely, the apples were plentiful, and the ensuing pie was delicious. I canned four quarts of applesauce, which used up most of the haul, but also made a pie and am working out an apple crumb bar recipe that will hopefully be posted soon!
In the meantime, enjoy the tastes of the season with these 5 recipes!
Apple Cider Cake (ridiculously appley)
Cinnamon Ice Cream (what else should go on that pie?!)
Oh heck, here is a bonus one! Sweet potatoes shouldn’t be forgotten this time of year! :-)
