An Epic Fall Recipe Roundup

It’s no secret around here that I’m a total autumn gal. Give me cooler temps, apple picking and an excuse to snuggle up in big blanket scarves and cozy cardigans. I want the AC turned off, the pleasure of not quite needing the heat on, and the promise of chilly morning runs. 

Now that we’re past Labor Day, I feel it’s within my rights to hawk ALL my favorite fall recipes. I’ll restrain myself from diving right into winter holidays, but just know… that’s gonna happen the day after Thanksgiving. It’s my holiday kick off ritual.

Thanksgiving Day: Family, togetherness, thankfulness, lots of comfort food.

Day after Thanksgiving Day: Christmas movies, putting up decorations and the tree, and making my inaugural batch of cranberry bliss bars

But I digress. Today’s post is to give you all my favorite fall recipes so you can join me in autumnal food bliss.
