We’ve all got a big appetite for autumn and I’ve rounded up 12 flavorful fall recipes that are just the ticket to satisfy it. Don’t worry—belts come with extra loops for this precise reason.
Sip on the Season
We’re wishing our played-out iced mochas well and welcoming our beloved PSL with arms wide open. Frothy, rich and delightfully spicy—the pumpkin spice latte is the crowning cup of caffeine during the fall for a reason. Lucky for you, we’ve got the inside scoop on how to make it in the comfort of your personal, cozy kitchen.
Caramel + Pumpkin Seed Brittle
This seasonal snack is sure to have you smiling from ear to ear, like a jack-o'-lantern. Combining salty seeds with sticky caramel and rich chocolate, these brittle treats are all you’ll want to eat.
Steamy Soups to Savor
Chopped, chilled salads are no way to begin a meal when the temperatures outside are steadily dropping. Warm yourself up from the inside out with a bowl of savory, steamy soup. With options like creamy leek with fried rosemary, onion and sage and pumpkin cilantro soup, you won’t be missing that iceberg chop one bit.
Side Dishes to Devour
Step up your fall game and try out some of our favorite seasonal side dishes. We’ve got a fluffy sweet potato soufflé, healthy and tasty quinoa-stuffed acorn squash. Craving some green? We love this sautéed Brussels sprout recipe that features cranberries and pine nuts. These sides are guaranteed to have you asking for seconds!
Individual Maple Sweet Potato Soufflé
Sweet potatoes, maple syrup and toasted pecans combine for an indulgent treat that's sure to please even the pickiest palette. Prepared individually in ramekins, they make for easy serving. Get the recipe: http://www.hgtv.com/entertaining/individual-maple-sweet-potato-souffles/index.html

Cap Off The Evening
Settle in by the fire with a cold-weather cocktail in hand. Maple Nut Goodie Cocktail mixes butterscotch, vanilla and coffee flavors that make for an especially sweet night cap. Another favorite? A twist on the classic autumn apple pie—Warm Apple Pie Cocktail. Spicy, sweet and a sure delight before you cozy up to go to sleep.
