Day 11: Some Kitchen Inspiration

Today, it's YOUR turn to find a fantastic recipe that fits into 31 Days of Fall from the Kitchen.  I've gathered a few recipes from Pinterest (where else??) and I'd love for you to choose one and make it!   Some are complicated and some are pretty easy, so 'choose your own adventure', if you will.

Yes, I love cooking and sharing recipes on my blog, but there is a greater purpose behind this blog:


Cooking and baking from scratch is not as difficult as it might sound, and hopefully that comes across through the recipes (and other projects) that I share.   But, if my readers simply read my posts for the pleasure of reading, then I've missed my greater goal.  I hope that you take away from each post some piece of inspiration, be it big or small, that challenges you to create what you wouldn't have created before.

Here are some great fall recipes that I've found (which won't be featured here this month).  If you want to 'play along', choose a recipe, make it and then comment back here sharing with us what you've done.  I'd love to hear what you were inspired to create!

Have fun!
