Fall Favorites Recipes

Thanks to Pinterest I have been doing  a bit of a baking and cooking and thought I would give you the links and recipes to some of what I have made lately.

I generally shy away from recipes that require lots of ingredients and prep because honestly, it intimidates me a bit. I am not much of a cook or baker, but over the years I have gotten better and my confidence has grown. Pinterest really has been an excellent source of recipes and inspiration for me.

If you follow me on instagram then you would have seen this this morning.
I tried this Pumpkin French Toast Bake and it was good! I opted to not put nuts in and didn't have any pumpkin pie spice on hand. I think it would have tasted a bit better had I had the spice and put a bit more brown sugar in. All in all though, it is something that I would make again.

Another favorite recipe of mine is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Spice Muffins. I really don't remember where or when I came across this recipe but I have seen variations of it floating around.

You simply mix 1 box of DRY spice cake mix with 15 oz of pureed pumpkin ( I like the Libby's brand) and 3/4 cup water. Mix in some chocolate chips and pop in your oven. Bake according to the cake mix directions. As simple as that and oh so delicious!!

This  Cherry Cheesecake Dip is to die for! I found it via Pinterest and it is so simple to make and so tasty. I guess it is not necessarily a fall dish, but that seems to be the time of year that I end up making it.

Last, but certainly not least, I love popcorn snack bars.  You can find my recipe here.

I would love to hear some your favorite fall recipes!


  1. That pumpkin pie french toast looks so delicious!!! Is it very sweet? I think I'm going to have to try it!!

  2. I agree with Karen!! The french toast looks and sounds amazing!! Omygosh, I really want to make it sometime!! Thank you so much for sharing! And the cherry pie dip - ahhh, I could eat the whole thing!! I love cherry pie!! I am going to try and make a pumpkin lasagna my friend made for me...thinking abt making it on Thanksgiving. She uses regular pasta sheets and for the filling mixes ricotta, pumpkin, nutmeg, salt and tops it with crushed cashews and cheese. I am horrible times a thousand with we will see if I burn it and mess it up! ;)
    Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!
