Fall Wants-Its: The Food Edition

something about fall just makes me want to get in the kitchen and cook! i think it's because my townhouse isn't air-conditioned so i pretty much don't turn the oven on during the summer months for fear of sweating myself out of the kitchen. as soon as the air turns cold {more like FREEZING...low of 42 degrees this week!}, i'm ready for the warmth of the oven. here are a few recipes i am just dying to make, some new, some tried-and-true favorites, and some purchased:




mmmm...this cheesy goodness is one of my all-time favorites!! it tastes so rich, but is actually very light. another cooking light homerun!



kag {if you don't follow her, you really should!} posted this cupcake recipe yesterday morning and i will definitely be making these over the weekend. what's not to love?



this is at the top of my must-try list. kappa prep posted this recipe a few weeks back, and i'm just now finding the time to make these. dinner party, anyone?








i know it's practically blasphemous in our little blogworld to not love the pumpkin spice latte, but it's just not my thing. too sweet for my taste. but oh my goodness, if i don't ADORE a tall non-fat sugar-free cinnamon dolce latte this time of year?! it's only 90 calories without the whipped cream, so no guilt either!



and last, but DEFINITELY not least, the deliciousness that is the krispy kreme pumpkin spice cake donut. i am normally a doughnut snob, and i firmly believe that if one wants plain glazed doughnuts, one goes to krispy kreme and if one wants flavored doughnuts, one goes to dunkin donuts. but as katherine hepburn said, if you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun. i am happy to break my golden rule this time of year.

what do you crave each fall to warm you inside out?

Wow - I am drooling at the screen. Baby K is drooling too (she's teething). I'm totally with you on the pumpkin spice - I always get it and then think it's too sweet. I'm holding out for the gingerbread latte!
