Top 10 Things on Our Fall To-Do List

October  2, 2015

Pumpkin-everything, turkey, and cider donuts aside.

You say apple, we say pie! Apple! (Pie!) Apple! (Pie!)

It's only just October, but we've already dived head-first into apple picking, donned our rain boots, and closed the book on the Mysterious Case of the Missing Squash (see you on the flip-side, summer). Needless to say, we love this season and can't wait to take full advantage of the crisp air, changing leaves, pies, and maybe even the occasional PSL (did we just say that out loud?). Here's what on our fall bucket list:

1. Master the perfect mac n' cheese.

Shop the Story

2. Find the perfect recipe for mulled wine. And glogg. And make it again, and again.

3. Apple pie, apple pie, apple pie.

4. Rekindle our relationships with squash.

5. Bake more pot pies.

Could these pears be any more fall?

6. Make seasonal dessert that aren't just apple pie (we're looking at you, Red Wine-Poached Pears).

7. Light more candles.

8. Recreate Roberta's Bee Sting pizza. (Just because.)

9. Eat more dinners with red wine—of every variety.

10. Master our fluted edges, wide lattices, and deep-dish crust—then invite over friends to help us eat them!

And plant beautiful Dutch flower bulbs from www.johnscheepers.com. They are the art and soul of spring gardens!

Red wine poached pears look splendid! I actually had a craving for pears and honey today
