Fall Food Bucket List

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins are now crossed off the list!

Right now we're having the perfect fall weather in Reno. The trees in our neighborhood are a mixture bright yellows, oranges, reds, browns and deep greens. The air is cool and crisp, with plenty of sunshine to balance the chill. Evenings and early mornings call for coats and boots and scarves. And each day begs for hot drinks and food to warm your soul.

I haven't made a fall bucket list, though I we've been having our fair share of autumnal bliss these past couple weeks. I always squeeze in the activities I love throughout the season: pumpkin patches, jumping in crisp leaves, decorating, carving jack-o-lanterns, hosting a Thanksgiving for friends.

But sometimes fall comes and goes without me making all my favorite fall foods. I was remiss to miss quite a few dogeared recipes last autumn, and this year I wanted to right that wrong. So this year I made a bucket list for treat baking, soup simmering, pie baking and more...

  Tell me, do you have any favorite foods that make the season complete for you?
