Autumn Celebration Menu

As soon as fall arrives most park the grill far, far into the corner of their garage. Suddenly, marinated grilled food that refreshes is replaced with savory, warm dishes that comfort. Here are a few tips to take into account when planning a menu during the fall - for both any night of the week and special celebrations!

Savory One Pot Meals

Put the grill away and break out your crock pot! There are so many ways to make a meal with this kitchen device and all of them require so very little work.

One of the most seasonable foods you'll find for cheap is corn. This harvest vegetable is a great addition to any meal and also works well incorporated into other recipes.

Apples, Apples and More Apples

Corn might be the seasonal veggie, but the Apple is king of Autumn fruits. We love this ingredient cooked and baked during the fall months. Paired with savory herbs and seasonings it can go a long way for any course of the meal.
