Fall Cooking Bucket List

These are a few of our favorite Fall things :)

One thing I'm trying to do this year is to celebrate bigger, seasons included. I always anticipate fall: changing leaves, cozy sweaters, pumpkin recipes, corn mazes, skinny jeans and riding boots... I love it!

However, it's one thing to anticipate seasonal things, and it's another thing entirely to do something about it. I sometimes feel let down at the end of a season because I was too lazy or busy to act on any of my idyllic ideas. I'm hoping that with some planning, this year will be different. I want to be intentional about enjoying another beautiful Minnesota fall. So, I've created a "Fall Cooking Bucket List."

I love trying new recipes, but never seem to actually make any of the fall-themed ones that I've found. My game plan is to make one bucket list recipe per week. There are 14 weeks between September 1st and Thanksgiving, and I have 14 recipes to try. If I'm feeling particularly daring, I'll throw recipe #15 into the mix: Apple Cider Caramels. I'm a little wary of this one- me and candy thermometers don't play well together.

Without further ado, here are the recipes:

apple pancakes
