I love Fall. I have many fond memories of picking apples, hiking in Brown County state park, going to Feast of the Hunters Moon, watching leaves change colors and more growing up in Indiana. There is truly nothing like Fall in Indiana. That is, if it is not already snowing. My friends and I would pick bushels of apples and turn them ineto apple pies that we would leave on people’s doorsteps. Yum! The flavors of fall have to be my favorite…apple pies, apple dumplings, apple cider, apple butter and especially apple slushies at Conner Prarie from what else, The Apple Store (shout out to Miss Bea).
So, what does a real food eating family do to serve their fall flavor hankerings? Well, follow me to the 2 recipes below. These are now a staple in our house during this time of year. They are quick, easy and portable. We pack them up for basketball games, road trips or just keep in a bowl in the kitchen for when you just need a little something. Enjoy!!!
