Apples and Squash and Pears, Oh My!

Fall is here!

We’re finally over the fact that summer is donezo and ready to dive headfirst into a big pile of leaves…

And a plateful of pumpkin cookies.

So crank up your oven and grab as many apples, squash, and sweet potatoes as you can get your hands on.

 

Mains:

Goodbye light summer salads! We’re ready for some real deal food.

Roasted Garlic Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boats

Time to get creative in the kitchen! Who needs actual pasta when you have cheese on cheese, sausage, and pancetta?

African Sweet Potato & Peanut Stew

No meat? No problem. This hearty stew is packed with tender sweet potatoes, creamy peanut butter, and kidney beans for a kick of protein. The leftovers are just as amazing, if not better!

Turkey Chili Smothered Sweet Potatoes

Why scoop chili straight into a bowl when you can smother it all over a tender sweet potato instead?

 

Sides:

These sides are so good they could pass as the main course… and yes, chips for dinner is definitely acceptable behavior.

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Pretty much the definition of comfort food. Just try not to burn your mouth on molten cheese.

Herbed Beet Chips

Perfectly crispy and very much addictive… potato chips, step aside!

Kale Salad with Quinoa, Tangerine & Roasted Almonds

This well-rounded salad deserves a spot in your lunch bag, along with one of the sweet treats below. Life’s all about balance, right?

 

Sweets:

Swimsuit season is officially over (for most unlucky people, anyway) so now’s the time to grab all the sugar and your favorite stretchy pants.

Old-Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies

Just another way to consume a boatload of pumpkin this fall. Snag a couple when they’re warm, right out of the oven.

Apple Yogurt Cake with Cinnamon Sugar Streak

You know what they say… an apple a day keeps the doctor away!

French Apple Cobbler

A big scoop (or two) of vanilla ice cream is pretty much required.
