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.
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!
