‘Flavors’ of Fall
I know, I’ve said it before, but I just LOVE fall. I love the changing of the season, the leaves falling, the fall holidays! Most of all, I love the flavors of fall. This week, let’s talk about your favorite flavors!
It’s all about pumpkin spice this time of year. How do you take your pumpkin spice? In a latte? Frappuccino? Mocha? Personally, I love a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Here’s an easy recipe you can do at home! I found this recipe on The Food Network, so you know it has to be good. Whip one up for your next coffee chat with another 100 Coffees member! Alternately, visit your favorite coffee shop and order one up from your favorite barista.
There’s nothing quite like filling your home with the scents of fall. I love going down the candle aisle at the grocery store and just inhaling. I think my favorite fall candle scent is cinnamon spice. Did you know that simply smelling cinnamon can help improve your memory? I have a cinnamon candle burning on my desk while I work. I find it helps me focus on the task at hand.
I also love the apple pie candle, but there are some hazards to burning that one too often. I may just get the urge to bake an apple pie. You know what that means – pie to go with that Pumpkin Spice Latte. Extra calories means extra time at the gym, and I don’t have enough hours in my day already. So the apple pie is saved for special occasions and not everyday use.
Fall holidays have their own special flavors. Halloween, of course, brings about images of creepy party time treats and tons of candy. If you’re looking for some fun, and creepy, Halloween treats, check out AllRecipes.com. I especially like the candy corn rice crispy treats. I’m not a fan of candy corn, but these are super cute and I LOVE Rice Crispy treats!
Thanksgiving is the other fall holiday that has its own special flavors. Cranberry is one of my favorite flavors. I love baking cranberry nut bread, making homemade cranberry sauce (leave the canned at the store please), and a mimosa made with cranberry orange juices for a little extra zip. To make these mimosas, simply take equal parts cranberry juice and orange juice. Fill your flute about ¾ full and top off with the champagne of your choice. If you prefer it citrusier, simply use more orange juice than cranberry. Like yours a bit tarter? Amp up the cranberry a bit. For a fun added flair, drop a few frozen cranberries in for color.
I’d love to hear what your favorite fall flavors are. Have a favorite recipe? Drop it in the comments. Come back at Halloween and share some pictures of your Halloween treats you’ve made.
