Fall is here! Leaves are changing, it’s getting dark earlier, and everything you can possibly fathom now comes in pumpkin spice flavor. That means it’s also time for comfort food! With the cooler weather and rain here in Portland, I’ve started making soups again after a long hot summer. Our house is decorated with gourds and scary movies (the good and the bad) are on every channel. While you watch Hocus Pocus or The Bride of Chucky for the third time around, why not curl up with a bowl of soup or a baked treat? Here’s a collection of some recipes and other fall stuff that will keep you busy until it starts snowing outside. Enjoy!
The sun is rising later and later, especially up here in Portland. Sometimes I think I set my alarm for the wrong time since it’s so dark when I wake up, not to mention cold! If you’re facing the same dilemmas, why not make your mornings a little sweeter with this amazing pumpkin muffin. The orange glaze adds a touch of sweetness to this tasty treat that goes perfect with a cup of coffee or tea.
Creamy, slightly spicy and sweet, this soup is the perfect combination of all things Fall. It’s easy to make, can be frozen and saved for later and will warm you right up!
One of my favorite seasonal snacks, I can’t wait to carve a pumpkin just to get these guys out and in my oven. Packed with protein, zinc, copper and iron, they are super nutritious as well.
Just got done making this soap a few weeks ago and it’s now up on my Etsy store. It has a very subtle cinnamon scent that comes from natural essential oils, nothing fake or overpowering. Organic pumpkin puree and rice bran oils provide antioxidants and vitamins to moisturize and nourish your skin. One of my favorite recipes for my face!
Seriously, do I even need to elaborate here?
Looks fancy but it’s really easy, I swear. Impress your friends and family with this gorgeous dessert that is great for Thanksgiving or any weekday you need a pick me up.
Easy. Healthy. Snack Worthy. Fall-y. Don’t burn them like I did. (They were still really good!)
That’s it for now, I will leave you with some gratuitous Fall pictures I took last year!
