When it comes to fall, weekends at home watching football, Hallmark movies, napping, and seasonal recipes are never far from our thoughts. As the weather cools, we’re eager to gather with family and friends in cozy environments, and often, good food and conversation are at the center of it all. We don’t mind lingering in the kitchen just a little bit longer, so it’s the perfect time to try new recipes and prepare something everyone will enjoy. Hearty, delicious, comfort food simply can’t be beat during this season, and that’s exactly what I find myself gravitating toward. Here are seven recipes I’d love to try this fall:

  1. Simple Turkey Chili
  2. Crockpot “Baked” Sweet Potatoes
  3. Cauliflower Chowder
  4. Apple & Stilton Harvest Salad
  5. Almond Butter Pancakes (or Classic Buttermilk Pancakes)
  6. Brie, Apple, and Honey Crostini
  7. Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Caramel Frosting

Here are just a few ways I’m embracing the season at home.

How do you welcome the season into your home? Have you set out any fall decor yet?

CoastalHappy Wednesday, friends! I cannot tell you how often I dream of Italy and taking a trip along the Amalfi Coast. My family is Italian, and for as long as I can remember I’ve had a desire to visit the country they once called home. While the Coast isn’t specifically home, I have much admired the color and beauty that lies within its region and plan to make my way there soon!

Its lively colors and grand landscape awaken a sense of excitement and adventure, and at the same time a sense of calm. What’s great is that even if you can’t be experiencing it firsthand right now, there is always a way to bring a part of Italy’s coast right where you are. So today, I’ve curated a few of my very favorite home decor pieces that bring the feeling of coastal life home. I love each of these pieces and their effortless style. That Gray Malin piece at the top right is gorgeous, isn’t it?
