Fall is my favorite time of the year. Here in Iowa, the leaves turn the most beautiful shades of gold, red and orange. Against the backdrop of the stately homes, it is simply stunning. We spend our days watching the Iowa State Cyclones, parades, playing football in our yards and running inside to warm up with comforting foods that are bursting with flavor and fill the home with the aromas we've come to associate with fall.
I scoured Pinterest for the recipes I will be sharing in my home this fall season as we gather to warm up after fun fall days. Let me know what’s your favorite!
