Happy Autumn! I hope you've been keeping busy by following some of the "Ideas for this Season" that I posted a few days ago. Well, today, I've decided to give you a few fall recipes to keep your oven warm and your hands busy!  Click each green recipe title below to go directly to the recipe (will open up in a new window). I've tried to select recipes that are fun, unique, and use ingredients that aren't exotic (in other words, ingredients that you are most likely to have on hand).

Pumpkin Cookies

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds - Although we've never celebrated halloween (it's always been Reformation Day or we've done an alternative thing like swimming!), I have fond memories, as a little girl, carving pumpkins, taking out the seeds, and toasting them in our oven.

Apple Orchard Punch - If you have an apple tree, use apples from your tree to make this punch.

Country Apple Dumplings

Pumpkin Oatmeal - There is truly nothing better than a steaming bowl of hot oatmeal on a cold day.

I hope you enjoy whipping up these tasty treats!

Above I've shared some fun recipes for you to try. I'd love to know how you like them! Please post a comment below telling us which one(s) you've tried and how they turned out. But before you go off and start whipping up these Autumn treats, here's at tip I learned. You know how there always seems to be such a MESS after you bake and how there is a stack of dishes as tall as the roof (well, almost!)? Here's an easy solution: before you start baking, fill your sink with hot water and a tablespoonful of dish soap. Then, while you are baking and done with dish, toss the dish into the sink and let soak. (Keep putting dirty dishes into the sink as you go!) Then, when your baking endeavour is over and it's time to clean up, your clean up will be a breeze because all of the dirty dishes are soaked! Just scrub the dishes lightly, and air dry. How easy could that be?!
