A small, but still sweet, take on caramel apples
Have you seen the size of caramel apples lately?
Bacon, maple sugar and butter make perfect pizza
Until recently, I was convinced the triumvirate of perfect pizza toppings was tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil. Simple. Classic. Delicious.
A bowl of comfort: Chicken soup with dumplings
A basic chicken soup is fine for when you need warmth and comfort. But what about those particularly blustery fall evenings when fine isn't sufficient? For those evenings, we have created this more robust take on the basic chicken soup, a version that oozes even more comfort and warmth thanks to the starches and savory ingredients.
Moist, rich egg bread studded with seeds for fall
When baking season brings thoughts of savory loaves of bread hot from the oven, we often overlook egg breads. But these rich, moist — and yes, eggy — loaves deserve serious consideration. They are satisfying in a way we typically associate with quick sweet breads, yet are versatile enough to accompany dinner and make delicious sandwiches.
A healthy muffin with a sweet (potato) side
When I told my mother — a fiend for candied ginger — that I was testing a batch of these muffins, she said she wished she could fly right over and dig in. She's not the only one.
A pumpkin bread that can handle any add-in
For me, nothing signifies the end of summer as poetically and viscerally as seeing pumpkins in a patch. One look at that field and I start salivating for all of my favorite pumpkin dishes.
A pear crisp with a savory-sweet-spicy aroma
Ground cardamom gives this simple fall-friendly crisp a sweet-spicy flavor that you will smell as much as taste. Don't worry too much about which type of oats to use in a recipe such as this. Though we prefer old fashioned rolled oats, feel free to use the "quick" variety if that's what you happen to have. The differences won't be tremendous.
A zucchini muffin fit for breakfast or dinner
This savory muffin studded with zucchini and cheddar cheese pairs as wonderfully with dinner as it does breakfast. And consider taking advantage of all that extra zucchini piling up in the garden by baking a double batch. The moisture from the zucchini means these muffins freeze well.
A fall soup that is sweet, creamy, spicy and smoky
With its robust blend of sweet, creamy, spicy and smoky flavors, this soup is perfect for a chilly fall afternoon. The beautiful orange color, the subtle smoky-spicy flavor of the chipotle, and the satisfying creamy texture make this recipe a perfectly seasonal lunch or appetizer. Consider topping the soup with seared shrimp or shredded pork for a quick weeknight dinner.
Putting the coffee back in the coffeecake
Adding coffee to coffeecake is a simple way to take something great and make it even better.
Because if you think conventional coffeecakes pair well with your favorite cup of java, wait until you try a coffeecake spiked with coffee. Still not enough jolt for you? Head to the grocer's coffee aisle and grab a jar of instant espresso powder, then substitute that for the instant coffee.
