Fall doesn’t officially start for another few weeks, but there are just so many things to love about the season, including a very elusive latte.
1. Pumpkin Beer: The first thing a beer lover thinks of when Fall rolls around: Pumpkin beer. Sweet and spicy, my favorite is Dogfish Head Punkin Ale , found at craft beer stores. Shipyard PumpkinHead is a more popular variety and can we found more easily; it even may be on draft at your local bars.
2. Chili: You can eat chili year-round, of course, but when you live somewhere that’s upwards of 90 degrees, it’s just not what you crave. Cool weather means warm dishes and chili is a no-fail warming dish. Check out our favorite chili recipes.
4. Butternut Squash Soup: This is a dish I make many times every year. Savory and sweet squash is affordable during the Fall months, and super easy to roast, puree, and turn into a soup. Try this recipe: Butternut Squash Soup.
5. Figs: I’ve recently discovered figs (only last Fall), so they’re still new and exciting and I am antsy about being able to buy them in the store. First on my list, this Fig and Goat Cheese Buschetta. I think the sweet figs and creamy-tangy goat cheese will blend fantastically!
