30+ Recipes To Try This Fall

Oh, Fall…  How I’ve missed you so.  I’ve missed your cool breezes blowing through my hair.  I’ve missed your countless craft shows and festivals.  I’ve missed your blanket scarfs and leggings.  And more than anything, I’ve missed your delicious, plentiful, stick-to-your-ribs kind of food.  My taste buds have been yearning for all things pumpkin, and my stomach is literally growling at the thought of a hearty bowl of soup.  So regardless of what that thermometer on my back porch may say, I’m busting out my crock pot and kicking off fall right here in my kitchen.  Care to join me?  Because I’ve rounded up every last fall recipe that I could find — and I’m ready to start digging in!
