With hearty squash and fresh apples in season, sweet and savory come together in perfect unison in these comforting fall recipes.
Ahh, the warm flavors of fall. Pumpkin and butternut squash starts to make its appearance at the grocery store, and it’s finally cool enough to turn on the oven to roast root veggies like parsnips, carrots, and sweet potatoes. In-season fruits like apples and pears lend sweetness and crunch to our favorite dishes, while tasty nuts like pecans and walnuts sneak their way in, too. And let’s not forget cranberries and pumpkin spice!
For most of us, fall is the season where we feast and indulge in every flavor that the harvest brings. From meaty chilis to apple pie, it’s the time of year where baked dishes truly shine.
