We have a lot of reasons to love fall — beautiful changing leaves, brisk yet sunny weather, and heaps of delicious flavors.
From the popular likes of pumpkin and apple, to the cozy warmth of stews and squash, we saw a lot of delicious flavors from our Tastes of Fall Thumbs Up Thursday mission. We’re highlighting a few that truly made our stomachs grumble and our mouths water below!
A crisp bushel of fresh-picked apples? Yep, we’re in. Megan L. did some great aesthetic organizing, separating her haul into bowls perfect for table centerpieces. With the warm fall light streaming in, we started dreaming of apple pies, apple crisps, caramel apples…
Mmm…we love this teaser shot from Kaitlynne F., showing us the guts of her favorite pumpkin pie recipe before it bakes. Take a second to appreciate her excellent framing: cinnamon in one corner, measuring spoons in the other, and the handle of the whisk balancing out the right. Hope we’ll get a taste of the pie!
On another pumpkin note, check out this pumpkin cheesecake, topped with fresh figs! Tara M. has fall written all over this dessert. We especially love the bright pinks and oranges jumping out at us.
This shot from Katie G. captures a family tradition: making homemade noodles! The victory after rolling the noodles and laying them all to dry is palpable in the expression. After all, the best fall flavors are about the love and togetherness that goes into them!
Stacy C. shared this beautiful shot from her kitchen, where she and her family are making pasta with zucchini and pumpkin-shaped noodles, covered in a homemade acorn squash sauce. We await our dinner invitation with dreams of this uber-fall meal.
