Foodie Finds: Fall Edition

It's the first official day of fall - unquestionably the best season - and we're so excited! Even though it's still 90 degrees in Memphis, the season of baking, fall activities, sweaters (inside with the AC turned up), and, oh, did I mention baking, is here!

Here are some of our favorite fall things (both food and not food related) on this first day of fall!


  • Tis the season for baking all the things. This chocolate pretzel tart from Hummingbird High (pictured above) is one of our favorite desserts - not too sweet, sort of fancy but also sort of easy, and delicious. 
  • Speaking of baking, do you have a good, everyday bread recipe? We swear by this one from The Kitchn for every sandwich and piece of toast that we make in our house. 
  • One of our favorite bloggers is talking about kitchen fails - something we know a lot about - and learning from baking mishaps on The Candid Appetite today (and making an amazing looking banana split cake!).
  • There is a whole drove of new cookbooks coming out this fall, and we're having some serious cookbook lust already. The Pioneer Woman's newest cookbook is already pre-ordered, because we have a problem. A delicious problem. 
  • Is it red wine season? It's red wine season. But it's also apple cider season. Booze up your cider with this recipe from Food & Wine
Seriously, this bread never fails.
Not Food

  • The best article ever written about fall is read aloud in our house every year on this day. Because it's decorative gourd season, motherfuckers. 
  • This is one is kind of about food, actually - keep an eye on our Instagram this weekend. Amber is going on her annual girls trip, and the amount of food eaten (and pretty pictures of fall things, not just giant cinnamon rolls and pizza and the most amazing cornbread ever made) is staggering. 
  • If you're in Memphis, check out the I Love Memphis blog for all the fun fall activities happening in the area - we'll be at quite a few of them this year!
AIya can't take a normal picture. But gourds, for real.
What is everyone looking forward to this fall? Cooler weather? Sweaters? Fall Candles? Eating all the carbs? Let us know in the comments!
