It is officially Fall, the foliage is becoming crisp and turning vibrant shades of red and amber, and of course, we celebrate all things pumpkin and pumpkin spice. The days are shorter, and the air is much cooler – this is the time of year to spend the mornings curled up under a warm blanket, reading a library book while sipping a coffee or a hot chocolate, or bundling up during the evenings in a thick sweater and cozy scarf while at bonfires and football games. 

With the holiday season fast approaching, this is the perfect time of year for families to gather together and cook and bake their favorites. Teens and even younger children will benefit by being involved, as it is never too early to pass along cherished recipes while teaching them the importance of healthy nutrition and kitchen safety. 

Hello, my name is Sara, and in this blog, I will provide five autumn meal recipes and inspirations (some are my own photos) with specific ingredients and directions.  I will also provide a link to my past autumn food blog, which contains additional hearty recipes as well as lovely autumn and winter craft inspirations.

Autumn Meal Recipes and Inspirations:

Below is my very own past autumn blog post courtesy of our CCPL @ HOME BLOG. This is a very beneficial blog that, in addition to offering hearty recipes, also provides autumn and winter craft inspirations (two of which are my own designs) so you can decorate your home and make it beautiful for the upcoming season.
