|Looking for fall recipes? I've got lots here. Pictured is the Fall Grain Pilaf with Sweet Potatoes.|
I'm taking a week off from Cook In / Dine Out this week, so there will be no new recipes and no edition of The Feed on Wednesday.
To tide you over until I return on Monday, October 20, here are some great fall recipes.
Like spaghetti squash? Check out my recipe for Stuffed Spaghetti Squash or, if you want to play up this squash's pasta-like quality, try Spaghetti Squash with Sage and Brown Butter. Butternut squash more your style? Check out this Fall Grain Bowl with Butternut Squash. It's also good in a soup, like Smoky Butternut Squash and Apple Soup. But my favorite way to serve it is in Butternut Squash, Goat Cheese and Sausage Lasagna. Don't forget this classic: Stuffed Acorn Squash.
I recently did a whole week on apple recipes, including Apple-Potato Soup with Chicken-Apple Sausage, Triple Smoky Apple-Blue Cheese Crostini, Roasted Stuffed Caramel Apples. Previously, I've shared recipes for Grown Up Applesauce,
Speaking of squash and apples, the both show up in this Fall Kale Salad along with pecans and dried cranberries. Barely cooked squash is the star in this Shaved Delicata Squash Salad. And if you still have figs, I definitely recommend the Beet, Fig and Prosciutto Salad or Watercress and Fig Autumn Salad.
Colder weather always puts me in the mood for the woods, which I tried to capture with the Scent of the Woods cocktail made with eu de vie of Douglas Fir. Bourbon lovers should definitely check out the St. Germain Cocktail, which nice balances the caramel notes of bourbon with floral St. Germain. For apple lovers, there's the Honey Bourbon Apple Cider and How Do You Like Dem Apples, which features three apple ingredients. Pumpkin may be overplayed this year, but I still love these Pumpkin Cocktails.
