Days are getting shorter (unfortunately), leaves are changing, the mornings are crispy and foggy…and the weather is getting colder. I don’t know about you, but my way of cozying up and getting warm is turning on the oven and baking up a storm. Comforting for your body, but most importantly comforting for your soul and tastebuds.
From warm, hearty soups utilizing seasonal vegetables, to comforting baked goods embodied in warming spices and seasonal fruits. I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite recipes that you will “fall” in love with this season. From autumn-inspired pasta dishes, to apple bread studded with candied pecans…you drooling too?
- Baked Mushroom Risotto with Rosemary & Dried Cranberries
Embedded with soft chewy chunks of dried cranberries and sun dried tomatoes. Flavored with fresh rosemary and homemade cream of mushroom soup. This will be the perfect side dish during your thanksgiving meal.
2. Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
Fluffy, sticky, and goeey these pumpkin cinnamon rolls are smothered in a thick icing and will leave you wanting to eat the whole batch. Perfect for this season…or any time of year really.
3. Gluten-free Pumpkin Spice Poptarts
These Pumpkin Spice Poptarts are so buttery, flaky, and are the perfect fall dessert for all ages. Yes these are gluten-free…no these are not dry (in the slightest).
4. Creamy Butternut Squash & Tomato Pasta
As fall is approaching more squash recipes will be starting to make an appearance. From acorn to delicata to butternut squash they all have many uses. Throw them in soups, bisques, sauces, stews, or simply roast them up.
Although tomatoes are not currently in season, feel free to swap the roasted tomatoes for 1 15 oz. can fire roasted tomatoes.
5. Pecan Apple Bread
It’s moist, fluffy, with a crunch of caramelized pecans, embedded with soft chunks of apple, an aroma of fall spices, and a hint of bay leaf…which trust me adds a whole other layer of flavor to this loaf.
With the temperature dropping I encourage you to get into your kitchen and get cooking with these autumnal recipes. Warm up by baking some sweet seasonal treats or mouthwatering savory dishes. There are so many other fall recipes on my site, so feel free to browse a bit more!
