Oh my goodness you guys! I’ve been seemingly excited about fall, but last night it got COLD here in Richmond and now I’m nervous.
Don’t get me wrong, I like fall and (almost) everything that comes with it, but fall means that winter is right around the corner. And if you know me, you know I hate being cold. I kind of dread the winter months – the only things that make them bearable are the holidays and snow.
Back to the point at hand, it’s cold (yes, 50° is cold to me) and that means fall is definitely in the air. This calls for some fall recipes and since I’ve been slacking on the recipe creation front this week, I thought a recipe round up would be a grand way to start the weekend. So here’s a few of my favorite fall weather recipes…
Oatmeal / Oatbran Combination Oats because there’s nothing better than warm, creamy oats on a brisk morning.
Try these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats for a fall spin on the summer classic.
And before it gets TOO cold for smoothies, you must try this pumpkin spice smoothie.
Love apple butter? Make this Healthy Apple Butter without the sugar.
Quinoa Leek and Corn Chowder. Nothing is better than a creamy corn chowder on chilly day.
Baked Butternut Squash Fries – when butternut squash is in season I have these fries once a week.
Warm Butternut Squash and Chickpea Salad with Tahini – another butternut favorite.
These Sweet Potato Quinoa Quinoa Cakes are healthy and perfect for fall!
Eggplant Caponata, a delicious spread that pleases everyone at potlucks. Serve it on the toasted baguette slices.
Pumpkin Spiced Nutty Granola –…
