It’s that time of year. We are one week + two days (yes, I am so counting!) away from fall, but here in Colorado (or at least in my little CO town) fall is in full force. The leaves are turning, the sky is blue and the air is crisp. It has been freezing over night for at least a week (meaning frost on the ground every morning). Denver actually had snow last Friday and our mountains have been covered with the white stuff on multiple mornings. Yup, fall is here…even if the calendar says we still have a week. I am really trying my hardest to hold out on the heavy fall recipes, but you should know, I have been eating pumpkin, apples and squash galore for the past week. I can’t help it. I love fall food! At about this time every year, I really start thinking about all my favorite fall recipes. There is SO much to love and I wanted to make this list a million miles long, but I feel like the long list of fifty or even one hundred plus recipes can get really, really overwhelming. So, it was hard, but I picked out my favorites from last fall and I’m ready to bring them back into rotation. I totally get it if you are not quite ready for all the fall eats just yet. If that is the case, just look at this as good preparation for when you are. Nothing wrong with being prepared!
