Now that is officially autumn (my favourite season), today I’m sharing some autumnal recipes that I hope to try in the coming months. I like to think that all of these recipes can be equated to edible hugs especially as the leaves fall from the trees, the nights draw in and the temperatures drop.
First up is a recipe from Dannii’s blog Hungry Healthy Happy. I recieved a review copy of Dannii’s debut book last year and it’s a regular go-to in our house. I’m excited to see that a follow up book containing slow cooker recipes is due for release next year, but in the meantime i’m going to try this turkey meatball tomato risotto soup. We should eat more turkey as it is leaner than chicken, so I think this would be a good recipe to try!
I can’t resist chorizo at any time of the year, but I can imagine that a spoonful of this chorizo jam from Eat like a Girl on a cheese toastie and a mug of tomato soup would make an excellent autumnal lunch!
It’s not all about the meat though during autumn and some of my favourite vegetables can be used in soups and stews. I love moroccan flavours and this recipe on Tinned Tomatoes uses a lot of store cupboard spices to build up the flavour.
One of the best things about autumn is fruity desserts and I always make an apple cake at some point. However Veggie Desserts has stepped this humble cake up a level. Apple cider and Salted caramel in one cake? YES PLEASE.
Finally, it’s not autumn without a pumpkin recipe or two, so I trawled back through the MITN archives to find a loaf cake I made a couple of years go, complete with a hidden cocoa sponge moon. Even if you don’t do the extra steps to hide a moon (or other shape) in the loaf, a slice of the pumpkin loaf would do you well for a tea-break at work!
What are you baking/cooking this autumn?
