Introducing Autumn in August

Once the 4th of July is said and done, I start looking ahead to fall. I love fall decorations and fall flavors. Apples, pumpkin, and cinnamon...oh my! As of August 1st, summer is officially over at my house anyway as it's the first day of school for my children. And, although we're trying to survive the sweltering heat of August, I have fall on my mind. In the spirit of Christmas in July, I've decided to start my own holiday season known as Autumn in August.

So, for the month of August, I'll be celebrating the flavors of fall by featuring recipes that incorporate typical fall ingredients - apples, pumpkin, cinnamon, maple, caramel and such. I'll choose recipes  from some of my favorite sources: Gooseberry Patch's fall cookbook line and Taste of Home's fall baking bookazines. I may also include a savory dish or two. We'll just have to wait and see.

Here are a few of the popular fall recipes from the blog to get us started.

Join me this month as we celebrate Autumn in August. And, please share in the comment section some of the things that you're looking forward to the most this fall. I would love to hear from you.



  1. I was just thinking that today felt like Indian Summer and I have a hankering for something fall-like. You must have read my mind! XOXO

  2. I look forward to seeing all of your recipes. The farmhouse apple bread recipe looks good. We have 6 apple trees and I need some recipes to use up the apples. I made peach butter with a lot of spices in it! Made me think of fall.

  3. Ok, YES! I totally support Autumn in August! Can't wait for the recipes & the cooler weather to roll on in! Love, Bethany
