Autumnal Treats

"The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools." - Henry Beston

Now that fall is upon us, the time is ripe for hearty, cold weather recipes.

  • Crab Imperial Pretzels. Planning on making these to nibble on Halloween night in between fending off trick-or-treaters.
  • Grown-up Butter Beer. The best thing to come out of the Harry Potter books. Rebecca Crump outdid herself in figuring out this recipe. It does involve alcohol: there are recipes out there that don't, but this is one just too good to pass up.
  • Crock Pot Mulled Cider: very simple - just put a gallon of regular apple cider into a crock pot with some of these spices, and cook on low for 2 to 4 hours. Or if you can't get those spices, use multiple cinnamon sticks and some ground cloves instead.
  • Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Need I say more?
