I love fall food.  Everything from the pumpkin to the apple pie.  It's always something to look forward  to this time of year. 

Pumpkin Spice Anything

Not everyone is a huge fan of pumpkins spice, but I for one am pretty much a fan of anything with the flavor. Some of my favorites are:
  • Pumpkin Custard Pie
  • Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
  • Pumpkin Spice Frappucino
    • You can DIY this one by putting left over pumpkin pie filling in an ice tray for pumpkin spice cubes and blending with coffee and other ingredients
  • Pumpkin Muffins
  • Pumpkin Caramel Cookies

Apple Pie

Apple pie is great.  What's more American than apple pie? Hmm... still thinking.  Anyway, apple pie, especially caramel apple pie is great.

Hot Chocolate

I drink hot chocolate year-round, but it is only really seasonally appropriate when it starts to get cold.  Some of my favorite flavors are:
  • Classic Hot Cocoa with milk
  • Mint Hot Chocolate
  • Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate
  • Peppermint Hot Chocolate
  • White Hot Chocolate
  • Caramel Hot Chocolate

Great ideas! Different ways to make hot chocolate - peanut butter hot chocolate, vegan hot chocolate, Nutella hot chocolate and much more!:
