Our Favorite Fall Recipes

Homemade apple pie recipeKris-Ann, Progressive Mom: Totally not healthy but a yummy Sunday football food: Queso Blano Dip.  And, I love this salad in the fall: Kale Salad with Warm Cranberry Vinaigrette

Mary, Organized Mom: My Homemade Apple Pie Recipe! I love to make apple pie. I like to eat it when it’s warm right out of the oven.

Kate, Rookie Mom: I love fall foods. A few of my very favorite fall treats include Swedish Apple Pie, Roasted Butternut Squash Mac ‘N Cheese, and Caramel Corn.

Amy, Nourish Mom: My family loves roasted and mashed winter squash. I halve the squash place it face-up in roasting pan, top with butter, cinnamon, ginger and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. Then roast until soft, basting periodically with melted butter to prevent drying. When done, scoop out flesh, add to blender with a bit of cream, puree until desired consistency. I use all kinds of winter squash – butternut, acorn, delicata, buttercup, blue hubbard, etc. The kids love it!

Caty, Blog Editor: I recently made this recipe for Pumpkin Bacon Pasta – it was delicious. And with whole grain pasta and lighter ingredients, it’s somewhat on the healthy side.

Jessie: Pumpkin pancakes! Amy shared a great pumpkin pancake recipe.

Allison My mother’s apple pie is the best I’ve ever had. Warm it up with a little bit of vanilla ice cream – one of my favorite cheat meals. I also love baking pumpkin seeds with a little bit of sea salt, good to snack on and you don’t waste the seeds when carving or decorating pumpkins.
