  • Mary Lauren

    OH my goodness all of these recipes look wonderful!

    My favorite fall food has to be anything with apples. Apple butter, apple pie, apple tart, or just the apples themselves! They are always the best in the fall, especially from an orchard!!



  • Jennifer Sellen

    omg i love the apple tart recipe… and the carrot cake recipe (i like to add nuts to mine)… and the cranberry squares look like an awesome breakfast go-to. i also like green beans… what my mom likes to do is add pieces of turkey bacon with the green beans. its really good.

  • Shaden Abu-Hammad

    Mouth-watery!! <3

  • Mel

    OMG everything looks so tasty. especially the carrot cake

  • Jordan Bulbrook

    Bacon wrapped dates (or figs) are even more delicious (and indulgent) if you stuff them with either blue cheese or goats cheese. The blue cheese adds a whole new element to the flavour, but if blue cheese isn’t your thing, the goats cheese makes for an added texture and yummy creaminess.

  • tinamarie

    they all look soo tasty! i’ve also heard of dates wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with cheese. here’s the recipe!

  • Sulamita lima

    All kinds of pies!!!

  • Hana ElFallah

    pumpkin spice latte is my favorite pick-me-up in the fall!
