Recipes to (Pumpkin) Spice Up Your Fall Cookbook

By Elle Wentworth

As the leaves start crunching, and the pumpkins start growing, it’s time to start cooking those warm, fall recipes that you’ve been hunkering for all year long. Fall is a time of colder weather, rainy days, and brisk wind which calls for warm soups, yummy sandwiches, apple/pumpkin flavored desserts with a warm coffee or tea. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your cooking this fall…read along! Each underlined title will take you straight to the recipes.

This recipe may look labor intensive…but is surprisingly easy and super flavorful! You can truly stuff an acorn with any of your favorite add-ins but for the purpose of this recipe, they combined farro, sweet Italian sausage and lacinato (or Tuscan) kale with a combination of spices. This unique recipe creates an indulging, protein-packed meal that takes advantage of the perfectly in-season squash.

This refreshing, fruit-filled salad is tart, sweet and savory all at once. The gorgonzola cheese creates a salty bite to level out the sweetness of this decadent salad. Numerous ingredients such as squash, apples, pomegranate seeds, gorgonzola, sunflower seeds and red onion create a symphony of flavors that will excite your taste buds!

This delicious fall recipe is the perfect treat to cure your sweet tooth. Pick some fresh apples from your nearest orchard and prepare for a delightful, cozy cinnamon apple crisp topped with toasted oats. This recipe includes just a few simple ingredients. Simply throw your skillet into the oven or stovetop, top with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

Every year when Fall rolls around, I find myself craving warm soups. Tomato soup is a staple and pairs so well with sandwiches such as grilled cheese, chipotle chicken avocado melts (inspired by Panera), and paninis. Most homemade tomato soup recipes include just a few easy steps of roasting vegetables and throwing them in a blender! So ditch the store-bought soup for a night and create your own masterpiece!

Pastas are the perfect comfort food for Fall. This simple, 15-minute recipe, is flavorful but simple while incorporating a slight pumpkin flavor. The browned butter and sage sauce creates a unique tang that your taste buds will thank you for. It’s savory, slightly sweet and perfectly rich.

This dish is guaranteed to have your mouth watering. The tender pan-fried chicken and flavorful mushroom marsala sauce are a perfect pair served over buttered egg noodles. Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of mushrooms, this recipe might surprise you! This dish pairs perfectly with a glass of pinot grigio.

I hope this fall recipe inspiration has you excited to try some new things! I’m expecting an invite if you whip up any of these delicious recipes this fall!
