The Flavors of Fall

The Flavors of Fall

Apples, and pumpkins, and cinnamon, oh my!

The Latin Kitchen

Autumn really is one of the best seasons for cooking and baking - not just because of the recipes, but because there's just something about being in the kitchen that has a distinctly autumn fall for me. Maybe it's memories of cutting up apples with my mom for homemade applesauce or different sides of my family in various years gathered in the kitchen, cooking Thanksgiving dinner. No matter why, I love baking in the fall and I wanted to share a few recipes with y'all. They're largely ones I have to try still, so I can't vouch for them, but they still look tasty!

1. Snickerdoodle banana bread

Just warning ya, I'm going to feature snickerdoodles a lot in this post. They're a perfect fall/winter staple, no matter what form they come in. I love a good quick bread, so try this one.

2. Cinnamon lamb stew

Stews and soups are perfect as the days get colder. I'd love to try this recipe over Thanksgiving or Christmas break.

3. Pumpkin cookies

What's fall without pumpkin? Plus, look how luscious that frosting is.

4. Pumpkin buttermilk biscuits

The idea of pumpkin biscuits (the American type) is a bit wild, I'll admit. But can you just imagine these for a Saturday brunch - or on Thanksgiving morning?

5. Skillet apple biscuits

More biscuits! Except they're made with another classic fall ingredient - apples.

6. Chicken tortellini soup

Everyone loves chicken noodle soup, right? Well, here's a twist on the childhood favorite.

7. Apple snickerdoodle cobbler

Cobblers are great potluck food. I also have a feeling this one'll taste a lot like pie.

8. Pumpkin cheesecake muffins

I love baking muffins. If I had a little more time and a few more resources, I'd definitely make these this fall.

9. Pumpkin snickerdoodles

My mom LOVES snickerdoodles, so I think I might have to make these over Thanksgiving break...

10. Roasted red pepper and Gouda soup

My university's bistro had this as a weekly special a couple weeks ago, and it was so tasty!

11. Apple pie crescent bites

Small and cute, I think these would be good for any fall luncheon (or maybe even dinner party?) you host.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go write all these recipes into my book so readers will hate me for all the delicious food I describe.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
