Happy Halloween!  It will be a bit cool today so it’s the perfect time to share this edition of My Favorite Five: Fall Recipes. I’m gathered some of fall recipes perfect for cooler weather and getting you even more into the fall mood. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing more specific My Favorite Five recipes including pumpkin-inspired, Thanksgiving, holiday cocktails, and much more…So be on the lookout for those!

I love salted caramel anything so of course, Salted Caramel Apple Crisp (picture above) is my first favorite! This dessert tastes like fall in a spoon and is perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or any fall day! It’s always a huge hit.

Hot Apple Cider part of My Favorite Five Fall Recipes RoundupNeed a beverage to go along with your fall menu? Try my Hot Apple Cider recipe! If you don’t want to make your Apple Cider from scratch, Williams-Sonoma has a great Apple Cider Concentrate that’s easy and delicious! In this post, I also share my Gluten-Free Cranberry Apple Crisp.

This Apple Gallete or Rustic Apple Pie is another favorite in our house. It’s a simple recipe and so good. It’s a great dessert and holiday breakfast pastry as well.

City Cafe's Tomato Soup Recipe part of My Favorite Five Fall RecipesLooking for something a little more savory? Try out City Café’s Tomato Soup recipe. Soup is my favorite meal and this is definitely one of my favorite recipes. I did an entire winter soups roundup in this post with more of my favorites. One that’s not in that roundup but is a definite must-try is this Tortilla Soup. Find all soup recipes here.

Lastly, make sure you try my White Chicken Chili recipe. It’s easy and delicious. Serve it with warm cornbread and you’re set! If you’d rather have traditional chili, check out my recipe here.

I hope that you enjoy these recipes! You can find all of my recipes here. And you can see all of My Favorite Five posts here. Let me know in the comments what you’ve tried or what your favorite fall recipes are and if you’ve tried these.

Also, I’ve updated the Fall Shop with great new finds this week!

    When making your Salted Caramel Apple Crisp, how much brown sugar goes in the apples and how much goes in the crumble?

    Thank you in advance,
