While our prolonged sunny weather in Santa Barbara may suggest otherwise, Fall is truly upon us which not only has me forcing the issue by grabbing my cozy sweaters and favorite jackets whenever possible – but it also has me craving my favorite Fall flavors in the kitchen. Fully embracing the season’s best ingredients (like butternut squash!) is a sure way for me to get in the mood for the change of the season. Just as I seek out new inspiration for my Fall wardrobe, I’ve been craving a little switch up in the kitchen as well. I thought I would share some inspiration I found for this season in the kitchen…
2. Fall inspired salad with butternut squash, kale chips, and pomegranate seeds from Bon Appétit.
3. Pancake Sundays this Fall are about to reach the next level with this gluten free option from What’s Cooking Good Looking?
4. Brainstorming treats to share as we head into cozier weather and time well spent with friends and family – maybe something like this Brown Sugar Cheesecake from Katie Clova at Wood and Spoon? Too much? Her Brown Butter Blondies also look incredible!
5. I seem to always be on the hunt for a quick and easy snack to keep me energized throughout the day. Now that it’s apple season, I’m thinking of giving these Apple Peanut Butter Bites a try as seen on Joyful Healthy Eats.
A few kitchen refreshers while we are switching things up:
