IT’S FALL Y’ALL. This carnivore is so excited that it’s finally the season of pumpkin and candy corn and cinnamon. With all of that being said, I tried two different fall themed recipes this week! The first is a savory chicken recipe that has so many delicious flavors and then a scrumptious pumpkin take of the classic snickerdoodle!
I found each of these recipes on different blogs, the first being Well Plated by blogger Erin. When I first saw this recipe the ingredients really drew me in. Chicken with apples, sweet potatoes seasoned with thyme and cinnamon sounded so fall like! AND BACON. BACON. Read the recipe before starting (always), but especially here. She doesn’t just throw everything in together and I have to say I think it really did make a difference. Give the ingredients the chance to soak in flavors before combining everything. She originally called for brussel sprouts, but I’m not a huge fan of them so instead I threw some spinach in! Just as healthy and adds the green color!
In case my kitchen didn’t smell good already (which it smelled amazing), lets bring some more cinnamon, add some pumpkin spice, flour and sugar and get to baking! These Pumpkin Spice Snickerdooles from Valerie’s Kitchen are so incredible, 9 minutes in the oven is the perfect amount of time. Still soft and gooey after cooling down, the cinnamon sugar coating not over baked on the outside. These flavors obviously work so well together, its like a pumpkin pie in cookie form.
My apartment smelled amazing all day from these harvest recipes, I highly recommend trying them out this fall season and check out the blogs too! There are lots of fun recipes from both bloggers! I hope you enjoy these fall flavors and smells as much as I did this upcoming season, now go make happiness in your kitchen!
