The smell of apples and cinnamon. Cooling temperatures. The return of pumpkin spice lattes. You can’t get more “fall” than this.
Fall is a favorite time for many people to unwind from a busy summer and return to their routines. It also builds excitement for the approaching holiday season when families and friends come together, cook and bake their seasonal favorites, and create memories. Stock your kitchen with these fall food staples this season and try out a new recipe!
The beloved pumpkin.
When you think of fall, you often think of a bright orange pumpkin. Instead of carving a design into your jack-o-lantern, incorporate it into your favorite meal. Pumpkin breakfast sausage is a new take on the savory side of the most important meal of the day. With four simple ingredients, pumpkin lovers can easily indulge in a high-protein and eggless option.

Another orange fall favorite, sweet potatoes
Savory or sweet – how do you prefer your sweet potatoes? As common as sweet potato fries and sweet potatoes covered in toasted fluffy marshmallows are, there are many other opportunities to serve the orange starch this season. Puree sweet potatoes, or purchase them from the store in a can, in this delicious recipe and drizzle your favorite maple syrup on top to create, yes, sweet potato pancakes. Now the real question is, are they breakfast or dessert? Try them for yourself and decide. [Recipe here]
An apple a day…
There’s something about biting into a fresh apple in the fall or dipping apple slices in caramel, but this recipe takes advantage of the sweetness of the delicious fruit in a different way. Stuff a pork loin with a mouthwatering blend of breadcrumbs, apples, and pumpkin seeds and impress your taste buds with a new way of seasoning meat. [Recipe here]
The classic cranberry
Considered to be a superfood due to its nutrient-dense nature and antioxidants, cranberries are both healthy and appetizing. You may be familiar with the classic cranberry sauce as a family staple at the holiday dinner table but consider incorporating this berry into a delicious drink! This warm spiced cranberry cocktail infuses cranberries, orange juice, cinnamon, cloves, ginger honey, and rum and can be served warm or cold and with or without alcohol. Either way, it’s like fall in a cup. [Recipe here]
These recipes are a little different, but so worthwhile. Enjoy!
