top 10 fall recipes


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!

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