We all know that I'm obsessed with Fall.

Crisp Air. Football. Tailgating. The coming of the Holidays. Coats! Boots! COLORS! Leaves. Hot Cider. Homemade Donuts. Carving Pumpkins. Picking Apples. Golden light. Chili. Scarves. Sweatshirts. 

I could go on and on. This time of year just makes my heart smile.

I've been on the search for some good fall recipes to send the scents of the season throughout our abode. I made homemade chili in the crock pot yesterday, and it was absolutely heavenly. Is there a reason that candle companies don't make crock pot scents? Someone needs to tell them they would sell like wildfire.

Here are a few recipes I'm planning on experimenting with in the coming weeks (experimenting as in, trying to find a "healthy" way to make them...and if that fails, I'll throw in the towel and add the butter!)

1) Crock Pot Apple Butter. I use to buy Apple Butter every year in Charlottesville at Carters Mountain (oh my gosh do I miss that place right now!)

I found a great recipe here. 

2) Pumpkin Cheese Bars. Anything with cheese + sugar = comfort
You can find the recipe here 

3) Harvest Chipotle Chili, found at Midwest Living

4) Pumpkin White Hot Chocolate, found here

5) Pumpkin Spice Latte Pancakes. Don't these just scream Saturday mornings?
You can find the recipe here: 

Do you have any favorite fall recipes?! I'd LOVE to hear them...and then make them:)
