Fabulous Fall Blog ChallengeI’m teaming up with Amber and Neely for the Fall Blog Challenge. Today is all about Fall recipes/dishes. I’m a fall foodie kind of gal, so this is just right for me.

Once upon a year….

There comes a season called Fall. It arrives just after our beloved summer and ends right before life’s painted white. It’s colorful and easy-going, yet doesn’t take it self too seriously. However, it knows and loves that its beauty is so appreciated. It tells us to unpack our light coats and wrap our scarves around our rose colored cheeks. Its sounds go crunch. wshhh. crunch as we walk across its leaves. it makes us smile. Next, it brings us home in the blueish gray air to sweet smells, hot ovens, buttery pans and goodness.

Goodness is here and the leaves are a-changing along with my taste buds.

I start with an easy favorite for a football party that’s also a fan favorite. Bacon wrapped in dates. Salty and sweet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sweetness reminds me of all the treats the season brings. But first, I think of the toppings. Whipped cream feels comforting and cool just like fall. A little whip makes everything better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Better with a hot date, whipped cream is hot chocolate’s best accessory. It’s frothy and fluffy, and all around perfect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfect when it’s wrapped inside a warm, airy croissant. Chocolate croissants send me to Paris and bring me happiness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happiness is candy’s twin. Halloween is just around the corner and if you don’t get Reeses in your pillow case, there are plenty of doors to knock on to find this peanut butter favorite.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A favorite Fall decor and treat is yummy and sometimes too-sweet-for-your-own-good candy corns. Just watch how many you pop in your mouth, a sweet brain freeze is likely to rise to your head after a handful or two.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rising slowly yet beautifully in the oven, Pumpkin Bread is a must. This warm delight loves a lot of butter. So spread, lather and enjoy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next, it’s time to enjoy pumpkin’s friend, pecan. If you have room, I suggest a delicious Pecan Pie. The gooey inside and crunchy outside makes this a holiday treat to  look forward to. It’s true love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of love…Thanksgiving dinner. Green bean casserol is that one dish you just know is going to be passed around the table more than once.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not one but two servings of this gorgeous stuffing with golden brown gravy for the night is a must.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are so many more fall delights I have swirling around my head. Thankfully, there’s plenty of time to try this season’s best. I think I’ll take day by day, treat by treat.
