40 Recipes to Try This Fall

fall photo

It’s fall, y’all! (Yep, I’ve been holding onto that one for a while.) And since I forgot to post some sort of “hello, fall” something on Sunday, well, you get it now.

I know most people probably hear fall and think of pumpkins. And, I mean, I do too. But I also think of butternut squash, sweet potatoes, candy corn, hearty soups and stews, chili and, believe it or not, apples (often covered in some sort of nut and/or melted candy).

Obviously, it’s all about the food.

Speaking of food, I’ve rounded up 40 delicious-looking recipes that I think will be perfect for fall. Some of these I’ve tried and loved (looking at you, Pumpkin Chili). Some of them are still on my to-do list (hello, Halloween Puppy Chow). Either way, you’re sure to find something you’ll love this season.

Today Josh turns 24, and we’re spending all day (minus what I had to work this morning) in celebration.

I was impatient and had him open his gifts last night…

20130510-125450.jpgBut there’s still plenty of celebrating to be done. We still have to go out to dinner, plus we’ll be hanging out all afternoon.

Anyway, I’m off to spend some time with the birthday boy. Be sure to check out the recipe I used to make his two little birthday cupcakes. (I won’t even pretend it didn’t take me two tries to get them right.)

Happy Friday!

P.S. We’ll discuss {infatuation friday} another time.
