The crisp air has greeted us all, bringing along Pumpkin Spice lattes, flannel and crisp nights that have made me eternally grateful. We are all craving apple cider, Oktoberfest meals and anything involving pumpkin. Here are my top treats you can DIY like Betty Crocker to enjoy the season, and still have some leftover in the bank to take a trip Upstate and enjoy the leaves with your local scarecrow.
1. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
My girlfriend used to make me these homemade goodness and I swear all my problems would melt away with one bite. The pumpkin chocolate combo may be better than peanut butter and chocolate. It’s like Bey and Jay versus Will and Jada.
2. Fall Flatbread
Add a little fall flava to your favorite staple, pizza! Top with a sliced apple, squash, pear and potatoes for an easy dinner.
3. Autumn Soup
I ADORE soup. I live and love it y’all. I am obsessed with this Autumn Chicken Soup that includes rustic fall ingredients that will surely warm you up on a Sunday evening.
4. Pot Roast
Need I say more?! Pot roast will make you feel like you’re under a plaid blanket, curled up with a pug and watching Gilmore Girls with your mom. It’s perfect.
5. Cranberry Pancakes
Fall into the day by sprinkling some cranberries into your pancake batter. It’s the right thing to do!
This is the real me: what I love, what makes me happy and what makes me buzz.
