You would never guess it at 2 on Sunday afternoon but the mornings and evenings in Colorado have definitely turned cooler with a reminder that summer is almost gone and fall is upon us. I’m not sure if it’s the cooler weather or if I’m finally crawling my way out of the small apartment cooking doldrums but this household is finally eating meals that require more effort than spreading peanut butter on bread or throwing a frozen pizza into the oven. In the spirit of all things fall-like, these next 5 recipes are on my September menu must-haves. I hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend, the start of football season, and the waning summer days!
Seriously, all good things are topped with cheese.
I’m generally a big fan of pulled pork sandwiches to signify the opening of football season. Sub chicken for pork- an equally delicious way to celebrate my beloved Minnesota Vikes making their debut appearance next weekend!
I’m a not-so-secret lover of tamales of all shapes and sizes. If my husband liked them at all I would be at every roadside tamale stand this side of the Mississippi finding the best vendor. This seems to be an easy disguise to still enjoy the same great flavor.
Does this title scream fall to anyone else? I actually cheated and already made this recipe (with a few substitutions of course) and it was amazing. And fall-y. And easy!
My mom and I took a cooking class together a couple of years ago and made the best chocolate chip pumpkin bars. To me, the flavor of pumpkin and dark chocolate go together like peanut butter and jelly. Can’t wait to try the cookie version!
