What do you love about September? Living in Kentucky I can feel and see the seasons changing. There’s a golden hue that starts to envelop everything from the trees to the food in my kitchen.
As blue jeans become my daily attire and I try to resist the early urge of purchasing 20 pumpkins for my front porch, I’m eager with the excitement for fall baking. It’s time to stock your fridge with homemade pie crusts and visit the markets to load up on stone fruit.

Basic Recipes to Welcome in the Fall Season
Fall spices, seasonal fruit and cozy flavorings are the best way to tickle your palate for all the autumn dishes coming your way. Here are a few of my favorites.
- Easy Wine Poached Pears can be made with white or red wine and served with ice cream or used as a dessert topping.
- Your house is going to smell amazing when you make Slow Cooker Apple Butter. Smear apple butter on biscuits, use as pie filling, top ice cream, or make a peanut butter sandwich.
- Everyone needs to know hoe to make a Simple Caramel Sauce. I could eat this by the spoonful straight from the jar.
- Enjoy ice cream all year long with this fall inspired recipe for Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream.
