My Favourite Autumn Recipes

My Favourite Autumn Recipes ©2014 La Domestique

After all that talk about how much I love fall in my most recent blog post I decided to round up my favourite autumn recipes and share them with you. Do you ever take a moment to flip through your recipe collection and reminisce? It’s like digging the box of your autumn wardrobe out of storage and discovering that favourite sweater you had forgotten about. 

I try to savour every moment in the kitchen this time of year, whether it’s thoughtfully stirring a pot of soup or the zen of kneading silken bread dough. Recipes that require more time and effort also offer a welcome moment of quiet solace and contemplation. I hope these recipes inspire you to slow down a bit and enjoy the season.

  1. I am so so happy that fall is finally here! I love all the cozy goodness. My favorite fall recipe? It’s hard for me to choose, but these days I’m definitely craving soups and I can’t stop buying squash, fuyu persimmons, pears and pomegranates.
    xoxo to you Jess,

    • Persimmons, pears and pomegranates all sound wonderful, Erin! Wishing you a very happy and cozy fall!

  2. What a beautiful post! I actually had a similar experience digging thru my fall “wardrobe” of recipes recently and I too love soups! The first week of cold weather my husband was requesting chicken tortilla soul, chili, veggie soup and chicken noodle soup all at once. There is just something so comforting about a hot bowl of soup paired with fresh homemade bread.

    • I totally agree, sis!
