Fall Recipes You’re Going to Love
“People who love to eat are always the best people.” – Julia Child
Julia is right! People who love to eat are the best and in second place are the people who love to cook!
If you’re someone who spends lots of time in the kitchen, you’re probably always finding new and interesting recipes to try – no matter the season. But when fall rolls around, there’s a whole host of fresh seasonal ingredients that make cooking exciting.
And even if you’re not someone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen, you may enjoy the flavors of fall and occasionally whipping up a new dish.
With that being said, here are some new recipes you can try that take advantage of autumn’s harvest.
- Roasted Butternut Squash Soup: Now that the temperatures are starting to drop, soups can make their way back onto your menu. Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is both rich and creamy and sweet and savory – which means it’s everything you love in a bowl.
- Pumpkin Risotto: Sure, pumpkin spice lattes get all of the press when fall returns, but pumpkin is great in more than just your coffee. This risotto is made like the Italian classic but has you adding a homemade pumpkin puree. And the shaved parmesan at the end adds the perfect amount of saltiness.
- Cinnamon Apple Muffins: Do you love a good muffin in the morning? After all, they’re a great portable breakfast when you need to get out the door in a hurry – and this recipe is no exception! The cinnamon-sugar topping adds a light crunch that is delicious.
