a taste for fall…

5 Oct

As the cooler weather sets in, I start to crave comfort foods. While not necessarily looking for overly hearty fare, chilly nights and layer-weather beckons for something that sticks to your ribs. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane for some recipes that fit the bill.

Some Curried Carrot Soup is simple to make, but is thick and flavorful for rainy nights or when you have the sniffles.

Some Pesto Ricotta will add flavor and protein to any pasta or pizza and make for happy tummies.

Inspired by Starbucks’ annual fall muffin, my Stuff This In Your Pumpkin Pie Hole Muffin will please vegans and non-vegans alike and is the perfect breakfast on a chilly autumn morning.

What are your favorite autumn eats?

    Thanks for the reminder! I really wanted to make that carrot soup, but I didn’t get around to it because summer carrots are just so tasty raw… Now that we have boatloads of carrots in our CSA basket, I see it in my near future.

      Yes, summer carrots are so sweet and juicy, I love them raw, too. But I promise, this soup is so yummy, it won’t seem like a sacrifice.

      Thanks! I got sick a day after reposting this and I made this soup… I wish I could say it made me all better, but it made feeling like crap seem a bit better. I guess that’s all you can ask for.
