I feel so blessed to live in a place that allows me to see all 4 seasons, and even though I could do without January and February, it’s all worth it in the end when spring shows up again.
This is the time of the year where I start using my oven again, something I avoid as much as possible in spring and summer! Soups are sounding good, but I have yet to make any, so those recipes will come later.
For now, we have been trying things with pumpkin or apples. The kids LOVE to help in the kitchen! I do try to limit their “helping” to non-dinner projects most of the time, since mom can barely get dinner done fast enough for hungry tummy’s without “helpers”!
Here are the links to our favorite fall recipes so far:
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies A delicious twist on the traditional oatmeal creme pie. Easy to make, looks professional, and has the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor without overpowering. The frosting is to die for! YUM!
Caramel Apple Bread This delicious combination of favorite flavors makes an out-of-this-world addition to breakfast or dessert! We made a cinnamon sugar butter to go along with this bread. I just ran the bread machine through the dough cycle, then baked it in our oven instead. The apples make it the bread stay moist for days!
Apple Skillet Cake Delicious! The iron skillet just makes it that much better. We used apples from our apple tree instead of the granny smith. Also, we made a homemade caramel sauce to drizzle over the cake and vanilla ice cream! Yum! It was a hit!
