Seasonal Appreciation

Seasonal Appreciation

As fall rolls around here in Chicago, I am fortunate enough to be able to experience the changing season.  For years now, fall has been my favorite season, and for good reason.  For me, fall represents family time, foliage, and of course, delicious food.  It is in the spirit of fall that I have created this list of my favorite fall flavors (and naturally, they are all pumpkin-related).

5) Pumpkin Cream Cheese- My favorite spread, regardless of season. Unfortunately the reality of the situation is that I can really only enjoy this flavor for 3 months out of the year.

4) Spiced Pumpkin Lattes- Dunkin’ Donuts has been my favorite creator of this fall drink, but I am always willing to give other coffee shops a chance to win over my taste buds. Typically, I try not to drink too much coffee, but these lattes make it difficult, and they hardly count as coffee anyways.

3) Pumpkin Muffins- Just like mom makes.  But really, my favorite muffins are the ones that my mom makes.  Our course, there is a little bit of bias, but they really are the best way to start a morning.

2) Pumpkin Pie- This dessert has been a staple for me since I was a kid.  No matter the various selection of pies at my family Thanksgiving party, I always choose pumpkin pie, and I am never disappointed.

1) Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream- In the interest of full disclosure, this fall is the first time I tasted this delicious Ben and Jerry’s creation.  However, it took no more than a few bites to win me over.  I recommend this snack at any point of the day and any time you have a chance to indulge.

If any of these flavors come new to you, I recommend you find a way to try them.  Of course, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed.
