A Fantastic Autumn Recipe Collection

It’s no secret around here that I like fall. Cooler weather, apple harvesting, and an opportunity to cuddle up in huge blanket scarves and comfortable cardigans? Sign me up. I want the air conditioner turned off, the joy of not having to put on the heat, and the promise of cool morning runs.

Now that Labor Day has passed, I believe it is my right to sell ALL of my favorite autumn recipes. I’ll try not to jump immediately into the winter holidays, but know that it will happen the day after Thanksgiving. It’s my pre-holiday routine.

Thanksgiving Day is all about family, getting together, being grateful, and eating a lot of comfort food.

The day following Thanksgiving, I watched Christmas movies, decorated the tree, and made my first batch of cranberry bliss bars.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Today’s article will share all of my favorite fall dishes with you so you can share in my autumnal eating happiness.
