Fall Eatin- Recipes- Fabulous Finds

Fall is my favorite season of the year, I love Halloween, the crisp smell in the air, the breathtakingly beautiful gold and red changing leaves that crunch under your feet as you walk, pumpkins galore, the rain... ahhhh I just love Fall. With Fall comes some delicious eatin ya'll!! Here's some awesome recipes that we take full advantage of.

My fave, pumpkin stew IN a pumpkin, can't get much cuter than that! We do any combination of stew or chili this way but there's a yummy recipe over at Taste of Home that gets 5 stars.

Candy Apples anyone? The best looking ones come from Country Living, they have some unique recipes like Pistachio chocolate apples, and then of course Martha Stewart's recipe. You can watch her make them and see the recipe here. For extra yumminess you can dunk your freshly caramelled apples into a bowl of nuts or drizzle with chocolate.

Winter Squash can make any meal fancy and hearty. One of my favorites is baked acorn squash and around Thanksgiving I will make these "stuffed" with turkey stuffing and other goodies. Courtesy of the southern chef extraordinaire, Paula Deen, here's a recipe for baked acorn squash with brown sugar and butter. I found a new recipe to try this from Emeril, a sugar and spice acorn squash, can't wait to test it out! 

Pumpkin Soup, I can't say enough about pumpkin soup, I could eat it nightly during the fall!! There are a million recipes out there, I like to pick one and then add my own twist. Here's a site that has a couple of unique takes on the idea like "vanilla" pumpkin soup and "southwest tang" pumpkin soup.

Baked Apple Dessert. Now this one will have you drooling! I found the coolest recipe for Greek Baked Apples that look delicious. This recipe calls for brandy, cinnamon, and cloves among other things, I can already imagine the amazing smell in the house while these are cooking! 

Cider Scalloped Potatoes. Put that apple cider to good use and throw it in this scalloped potato recipe... Gouda cheese, Yukon gold potatoes, cider, nutmeg, and more. To. Die. For!

Ok bring on the cuteness with this last recipe. Baked stuffed pumpkins! I always find a use for those tiny pumpkins you see in the grocery store, usually I core them out and use them as dip bowls for parties but this takes the cake. Basically they serve as little ramekins to stuff with fall harvest casseroles. I will definitely be making these babies!!
