Fall is finally here! The nice breezy sweater weather is here to stay…for a bit. What better way to celebrate the change of the season, than with 4 fall recipes that taste like Autumn.
#1 Pumpkin Pie Martini
What better way to kick-off the fall season, than with this specialty cocktail recipe from No Spoon Necessary? Paired with our Crystalex Flamenco Martini glass, this cocktail is sure to be a hit.
1. Prep the garnish - in a ziploc bag crush the graham crackers, mix in the cinnamon & sugar, line the rim of the glass with the syrup & dip in the mixture.
2. Create the cocktail - in a shaker combine the ice and drink ingredients. Shake until the shaker is cold.
3. Serve the drinks - strain & pour the drink into the glass. You can garnish with nutmeg & a cinnamon stick.
#2 Butternut Squash Soup
Looking for a nice soup recipe? Not to worry, Mama Haney has the perfect recipe for you. Her Butternut Squash Soup is perfect for one of those cold nights that are coming your way.
1. First, roast the squash.
2. Then, in a large stock pot, combine broth, squash, onion and apple; cover pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
3. Uncover pot and reduce heat to low; gently simmer until squash is very tender, about 10 minutes.
4. Puree soup in pot using an immersion blender (or puree in a regular blender in batches, careful not to splatter hot liquid.)
5. Season with salt, pepper, curry and nutmeg.
Makes 24 half-cup servings.
#3 Pot Roast Casserole
This Pot Roast Casserole from Land O'Lakes looks so yummy. What a great way to use up leftover roast beef!
1. Heat oven to 375°F
2. Melt butter in a skillet; add potatoes, carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat, stirring to cook evenly. Once veggies start to soften, add all the remaining ingredients (except the cheese), and stir to combine. Spoon everything into an ungreased casserole dish & cover.
3. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven, add your cheese, and cover until cheese melts.
#3 Apple Crisp
Who doesn't love a nice Apple Crisp recipe - especially this one from Belle of the Kitchen?!🍎🍏
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a deep-dish pie plate or baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
2. Combine the apples with sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Mix until evenly coated & pour into the baking dish.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Pour in the melted butter and stir until mixture becomes crumbly. Spread evenly on top of the apples.
4. Bake for 45-60 minutes. Allow to cool a bit before serving. Serve with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream.
