Hello friends and welcome to October! Fall is my favorite time of year, and although the leaves are still mostly green on the trees, there’s a nip in the air and the promise of fall foliage and sweater weather ahead.

My two youngest girls and I visited an orchard recently and picked Golden Delicious and Rome Beauties right off the tree. We ate hot apple pies and brought home cold cider, doughnuts, and an extra half peck of sweet, crispy Galas.

I ordered a doughnut cutter last week to go with my doughnut cookbook and I plan to try the apple cider recipe soon. Pumpkin and apple are extra appealing in the fall. Who can resist hot doughnuts?

Or hot soup? I’ve already made Pioneer Woman Corn and Cheese Chowder—a family favorite—and a big pot of chili. Bring on those chilly autumn nights!

Or hot drinks? My favorite drink at Starbucks is the Caramel Apple Spice: steamed, freshly pressed apple juice and cinnamon syrup, topped with sweetened whipped cream and caramel drizzle. YUM!

What’s your favorite fall food or drink?
