The Best Fall Recipes

When it comes to choosing a favorite season, Fall always wins in my book. There is something about the cool, crisp air and the warm and delicious flavors of the season that has me dreaming of the leaves turning during the heat of summer…like right about now! And although it may not seem like it with these temperatures, Fall is right around the corner. Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite Fall recipes that will even have the lovers of summer dreaming of these pumpkin, butternut squash and maple flavors!

Simple Pumpkin Muffins with Vanilla Glaze

I’ve been making these three ingredient muffins for a few years now and I just can’t get enough of them. I was actually craving these pumpkin muffins back in June and considered making them. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any of the canned pumpkin or I probably would have made them in a heartbeat! The vanilla glaze is optional {and it will add a few more ingredients to your ingredient count} but it gives the muffin the most delicious sweetness. Truthfully, I would eat the glaze without the muffin. It’s that good 😉

Autumnal Salad with Maple Vinaigrette
{recipe HERE}

This salad truly captures just about every flavor of Fall in one dish! And it’s pretty healthy, too. With the roasted butternut squash, cranberries, pecans and maple vinaigrette, it may seem like a pretty sweet salad. But, the kale and goat cheese really cut the sweetness and leave you with a healthy salad that tastes like Fall in just one bite.

Butternut Squash & Sage Fettuccine 
{recipe HERE}

I’m a sucker for anything pumpkin or butternut squash during the Fall. I have come up with countless ways of incorporating these two ingredients into main courses, but this is probably one of my favorites. Although it sounds and looks relatively complicated, the sauce is a quick butternut squash puree that is finished with the crispy sage. A quick and super impressive weeknight meal! 

Roasted Fall Vegetable Pizza
{recipe HERE}

Last, but certainly not least, is one of my favorite Fall pizzas. Some of you may remember that Friday night is pizza night in our house and I love coming up with new ideas each week. I first made this a few years ago and it’s usually one of the first pizzas I make when the temperatures start to drop. With a pesto sauce and roasted medley potatoes, butternut squash, red onions and carrots, it’s one delicious and hearty pizza for those cool Fall days. Like so many of these Fall favorites, you can truly taste the season in each bite!


What are some of your favorite fall recipes? Please excuse some of the food photos — these were taken when A Blonde’s Moment was just starting out and I frankly had no idea what I was doing with a camera! They are some of my favorite recipes though and I didn’t want you to miss them 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy Fall cooking!

  2. Yummy! Even though I don't particularly care for the really cold weather, I love all of the fall food because it means way more soups and everything has pumpkin in it! Your butternut squash fettuccine and pumpkin muffins both sound awesome!
