Here’s today’s post for The DC Ladies’ Blogtober. Today’s assignment: my favorite fall recipe.
So many choices! I do enjoy cooking, even though I don’t feel like I’m very good at it. I feel like I’m a better baker because I find it satisfying and comforting to know that something will (most likely) turn out the way it’s supposed to if I follow the recipe. In general, baking is about precision and following instructions. I can totally get on board with that. One of my favorite baking recipes for fall is an iced-spiced ginger bar recipe that I found on allrecipes.com a few years ago. It’s really more of a cake texture than a dense bar, but the flavor is so yummy. You can add more cinnamon, ginger, or cloves if you’d like.
For non-baking recipes, I love pureed butternut squash soup in the fall, and the spicy pumpkin seeds and sour cream on top add some great flavor and balance. I also love this simple recipe for kabocha squash puree, which my husband has already requested as a side dish for our Thanksgiving dinner this year. Really, I love any recipe with squash. So yummy!
