top 10 fall recipes

by jenna on September 22, 2011

Hello!

My very favorite season is upon us and I’ve gathered up my top ten favorite recipes ever to celebrate it! Think creamy squash soups, pumpkin-filled baked goods and homey meatballs and baked beans. All that combined with cute boots, brightly colored tights and darker “fall colored” hair? Good stuff.

Now get thee a pumpkin spice latte and tie your apron tight….you’ve got meals to cook!

Curried Butternut and Red Lentil Soup

Fall Harvest Salad

Baked Spice Doughnuts

Cinnamon Pear Dumplings with Ginger Tea Syrup

Chicken n’ Biscuits to Fix Your Life

Mom’s Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Baked Beans

Pecan Pumpkin Raisin Scones

Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Pancakes

Baked Stuffed Apples with Dried Cherries and Walnuts

Chicken Tortilla Soup (to heal the soul)

Turkey Meatballs with Quick Homemade Marinara Sauce

….I just got home from Colorado and can’t WAIT to share all the sweaty details with you. Stay tuned!

I LOVE your pic with the acorn squash too, !!

Agh, I really need to stop reading blogs for a couple of days. All these fall recipes are killing me! I’m doing the Yoga Journal 7-Day Fall Detox… 2 more days left of Kitchiri and tea, and then me and pumpkin are going to have a glorious reunion…

I want to make that chicken and biscuits so bad. I remember the original recipe and thought it looked daunting, but I may have to throw caution to the wind and go for it!

Can’t wait to hear about your trip! And I believe I will be making those pancakes tomorrow!! I’m making a butternut squash and rice casserole tonight, so I might just have to set some aside :)

The fall recipes all look great but I cannot WAIT for the sweaty, amazing! Colorado trip details. I would not be surprised to hear that you want to do a yoga teacher training next…

Just a guess, but wouldn’t be surprised! Yoga events like that are often so powerful and life changing! :)

I made the curried lentil squash soup last night and it turned out so bland, but I followed the directions perfectly, could some of your measurements be off?
