Fall Recipe Favorites!

We are right in the middle of fall, getting ready to break out the winter clothes for the freezing weather coming up. But what’s great about fall of course is….the FOOD!

I have to admit, I am not a fan of cold weather, but then again who is? It’s been hard for me to accept that yet again winter is knocking at our doors and pretty soon white flakes will be drifting from the sky. But I can’t fight it any longer, not with Halloween only two days away!

What’s really great about fall weather, Halloween and the amazing feelings this time of the year brings (bright colors, falling leaves, pumpkin patches, haunted houses, etc.) is the tastes and spices that come with it.

Another of my secrets is that I love to bake! And what better time to bake then when the weather starts getting chilly and pumpkin starts appearing on everyone’s grocery list!

This fall, my family and I tried our hands at some pretty amazing recipes that you must try! These recipes are great for family gatherings, which will be coming up before we know it.

My top favorite fall and Thanksgiving recipes:

1. The Pumpkin Roll

You never beat the taste of a perfectly made pumpkin roll. This delicious dessert is the best way to say hello to fall. It’s great for any Thanksgiving or family gathering during the season.

2. Classic Pumpkin Pie.

There is no better way to welcome the season than with a classic favorite. This pumpkin pie will have all of your family members asking you for the recipe and patting you on the back.

3. Chocolate Brownie!

I know what you’re thinking, a chocolate brownie doesn’t really scream fall, but this chocolate brownie does! It’s about taking a classic that everyone, especially the kids, love and adapting it to the different seasons.

4. The pumpkin muffin from Starbucks.

Yes, you too can make this delicious muffin and have it taste just as good as getting it out of the café. This muffin is a personal favorite of mine whether I choose to make it myself or spend some cash at Starbucks.
