The summer sun may still be bringing the heat, but those of us who love the crisp, cool days of autumn, fall can’t come soon enough.
The fall season invokes images of flannels, pumpkin spice, apple picking, hay rides and just an overall feeling of “coziness.” We seek out warmth and comfort in everything around us, especially our food.
Fall is a wonderful time for trying new recipes and for sharing meals with family and friends. This post includes four recipes that would make a great addition to any meal. They all are vegetarian friendly and can be adjusted to fit gluten-free and other dietary needs.
Butternut squash is widely available in much of the U.S. during the fall months and adds a sweet and earthy flavor to baked goods. These muffins are easy to make and even easier to eat.

If you prefer a more savory use for your squash, you will enjoy this version of mac ‘n cheese that uses squash to enhance the creaminess and flavor of the traditional dish.

I love the smell of soup that has been simmering on the stove for hours, developing full, rich flavor. This mushroom soup can be served with your favorite udon, soba or ramen noodles, and tastes even better the next day.
