Pie isn’t normally considered a breakfast of champions, but this pecan pie oatmeal looks almost as good as the real thing. And it’s a great deal healthier! Sweetened with maple syrup and just 3 Tbsp of brown sugar, this is a guilt free breakfast that I’m positive my kids will scarf down. Recipe is here.
I’m not really a fan of pumpkin. You can keep your Pumpkin Spice latte (just give me all the Trader Joes pumpkin pancakes). I do make an exception for pumpkin cheesecake rolls. My older sister would make these all the time when I was younger. Thanks to my obsession with The Great British Bake Off, I’ve seen dozens of these things being made, so I think I’m ready to attempt one myself. The biggest challenge will be sharing it with anyone else. Find the recipe here. Don’t let me down, Trisha Yearwood!
Chicken and apples are two things I wouldn’t naturally cook together, but in the spirit of adventure I’m trying this veggie loaded fall-tastic meal. I’m taking my kids apple picking for the first time, and I can only make so many batches of homemade applesauce, right? So might as well throw some in a skillet with chicken (and bacon!). Be bold with me and try the recipe here.
If you, like me, ate butternut squash soup while suffering from morning sickness, puked it up, and consequently will never eat it again, then here is your perfect alternative! Described as “complex” and “warming”, this soup looks creamy and tangy with a little kick from curry powder. It might have to be my new cold remedy soup. Recipe is here.
This one I’ve actually made before! It was years ago, and I can’t believe I haven’t made it again. Goulash is scrumptious and perfect for crisp, cold fall evenings. It requires a trip to a spice shop for Hungarian paprika, but it’s worth it. You can serve it with crusty bread, over noodles or potatoes, or even just by itself. Recipe is here.
