Fall is the season of food. Besides it being time for one of my favorite holidays (Thanksgiving), autumn vegetables of every size, shape, and color are ready to be picked and cooked into tasty recipes and desserts. I've found some great recipes to help you get the most out of the fall harvest!
It's no secret that Brussels Sprouts are far from being the most popular vegetable, but the Spicie Foodie has taken this unpopular veggie and turned it into a rich and tasty salad that I would definitely love to give a try. This Roasted Brussels Sprout with Almonds is definitely a nice, light salad to serve alongside all those heavy Thanksgiving meals.
Sweet potatoes are definitely the "Junk Food Lovers" potato. You can pretty much mask the healthy factor by mixing it with some tasty, but stealthy ingredients that will turn the vegetable into a rich and delicious entree. This Brown Butter Coconut Mashed Potato takes some of the most popular fall flavors and combines them for a dish that I cannot wait to try. I bet even the biggest vegetable protestor will enjoy this dish from Family Fresh Cooking!
Apple pie, apple cider, caramel apples... I think it's safe to say that apples and Fall go hand in hand. This recipe for Apple Cider Cream Pie from A Sweet Spoonful has taken my 2 favorite apple recipes - pie and cider - and combined them into one irresistible dessert! I know I'll be making extras of this pie, or else I'll just eat it all, leaving none for the guests.
Sweet Sugar Belle has done it again - created the perfect cookie to match my train of thought. It's almost as if she knew I wanted to make little scarecrow cookies and made a personalized recipe just for me! The perfect harvest meal needs a few scarecrows guarding the food from all the hungry vultures, but I'm not so sure if these scarecrows will do such a good job keeping them away. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to make extra!
