Snuggled under covers with a good book or all around the table with family, fall has so many tasty things to bring us warmth and welcome. Here are this week's fun finds from the blog-o-shere..and they are all tasty!
You just can not have fall with out caramel apples...tangy apples, gooey sweet caramel, those crunchy toasted nuts..fall perfection. Only problem is..trying to bite into one. Over at Taste of Home a solution has been found: caramel apple bites. There we go..now, perfection.
After caramel apples, there must be pie: apple, pumpkin, pecan..so many choices..so many calories! There are just not enough days in the season to enjoy the amazing delight known as pie. Creative juices were flowing at Zoom Yummy; a perfectly precious tutorial and recipe for mini apple pies (no doubt easily converted into pumpkin or pecan..just saying).
Lest you think I only have eyes for apples, fall also yields the wonders of squash. Bountiful and beautiful, winter squash are versatile and hearty..perfect accompaniment for any variety of main dishes. Spoon Fork Bacon has a wonderful take on oven roasted winter squash. We love ours seasoned with Cajun spice and garlic!
Right along side of every bowl of warm soup there must be a loaf of hearty dense bread. Over at The Science of Eating two wonderful recipes can be found for traditional Irish soda bread as well as dark soda bread..both perfect next to hot steamy soup!
No fall day can be complete without the all important cup of tea. Soothing and warm to nip that chill in the air, or iced and slightly sweet for those warm work-outdoors days. The Yummy Life shares some tasty frugal fixer uppers for your everyday cup of tea. My favorite? Raspberry..or was it mint?
