I love Fall so much. Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons and fall food is a big one. Last night I realized that it is finally Fall again. The weather, though still warm, is starting to feel more crisp and everything is starting to feel more comfortable. In celebration of Fall I made one of my favorite fall meals, Pumpkin Baked Ziti from VCON with garlicky collards. It was so delicious, I freaking love that sagey walnut breadcrumb topping! This meal made me even more excited and I got to thinking about all of the pumpkin that is yet to come as well as all of the baked goods, stews & soups, and casseroles that I will be making.

Some of the things I have on my list to make are pumpkin granola (Sweet & Easy Vegan), pumpkin nut muffins (Vegan w/a Vengeance), butternut alfredo lasagne with chard (adapted from Isa Does It), pumpkin or acorn squash risotto (also IDI), apple cider doughnuts, shepards pie, enchiladas, and a ice seitan pot pie.

What do you crave or have to make during fall?

*Now I want a hot chocolate!

I love fall something crazy. But it was 90 degrees here yesterday and 100% humidity. So I'm not there yet. Soon!!

I like fall, but I am a summer girl at heart... especially as far as food goes. So I am steadfastly denying the approach of fall, while I eat tomatoes and corn and green beans and nectarines.

It's not fall yet. We still have almost three weeks of summer left.

Me too! But it's SO warm here and summer hangs around so long. I am very happy about that. Tomatoes are JUST ready for harvest.

When fall takes over I will be worshiping delicata squash, mushrooms, and brussels sprouts again. The potatoes are pretty decent here too. And so much garlic!

I'm also unreasonably optimistic that my purple kale plants will last the whole fall/early winter.

Fall usually sees me turning on my oven again for roasted veggies of all kinds, baking, and more carb-y stuff like mashed potatoes and baked casseroles. Also, spicy spicy soups!

This for real! Though we've had a pretty cool summer in general here in Chicago, we're still getting quite the summertime weather, and tomorrow is supposed to be in the 90s (and still very humid, not crisp fall warm late summer weather even!) Plus, I'm still in eat-ripe-tomatoes-from-the-garden-on-everything-possible mode right now, 'cause we're having major tomatosplosion. Also I have so many peppers I have to pick, but no time to cook them!

That said, I love pumpkin in everything. Those pumpkin muffins from VWAV are sooo good. I also like that gingersnap apple pie! Mulled cider. Roasted brussels sprouts and beets. Pomegranates! Hot toddies. Also hot tea or coffee in a sweater on the porch.

Here it's been looking like fall for a month already! I already baked cookies, which is so not a summer activity for me. This is the year I will finally bake a pumpkin cheesecake!Other than that, I am looking forward to pumpkin risotto and all things mushrooms.

Kathy Hester's pumpkin lasagna in the slow cooker is super good. I'm also a big fan of the apple cake in 101 vegan baking recipes. Also roasted butternut squash.

I don't cook all that much anymore, so I don't really have anything else on the list. Still, I am in full agreement that fall is the best season.

I'm super bummed that it's still hot on the east coast. I'm going to Boston this weekend for a show and some site seeing and was really hoping for fallish weather. It ain't happening!

And now I'm thinking about that pumpkin lasagna from the slow cooker cookbook. Thanks!

Also my neighbor just gave us a huge bag of tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers. The gardens aren't ready for fall yet either.

Fall makes me sad because it means winter is coming, but the one silver lining is that I like to eat all of the squash and squash is definitely a fall food.

I'm holding onto summer produce while I can because it's really the big thing I like about summer (peppers! tomatoes! basil!) but I did see delicata squash at the market yesterday. That's all.

when I see the delicata squash I curse at them and turn the other way, clutching my tomatoes desperately

Those pumpkin pops are going to be the most amazing thing in the world to me this fall! I haven't had pumpkin ice cream in almost 6 years!! What in the world has taken so long vegan ice cream companies! I would prefer a huge tub of pumpkin ice cream, but I'll take a pop.

I can't wait to make lots and lots of soups. And curry. And pasta. Basically everything that is good. It's meant to be autumn here but it's still hot and humid....go away summer!

I'm waiting with bated breath for Julie Hasson's Vegan Casseroles to arrive. I plan on being casserole girl this fall.

When does that come out?

My husband is all about the pumpkin beer this weekend. He likes to stock up early cause it goes really fast.

I think it's due out the first of October. I've preordered it at work (I work at a bookstore) so it should ship as soon as the suppliers have it! I'm so excited!

The weather has totally turned to Fall here, but I will deny it until the last leaf falls from the tree! When I'm finally able to part from my summer berries and corn, I'll be all over thick and hearty curries and soups, plus there's a bunch of butternut and pumpkin things I've been wanting to make/remake like pumpkin mac n cheese, gnocchi butternut casserole, apple cinnamon bread and sweet potato everything!

It'll be hot here until practically November, but I'm looking forward to lots of soup and bread. And pumpkin everything.

Haha! I guess I'm just fast to jump on the season change because it suits me better than summer, but I hope to enjoy the end of summer goodies too! Oooh, I can't wait for Julie's casserole cookbook either! Right now I have some pumpkin granola baking and it is making the whole house smell yummy! I'm planning on gifting this granola to a friend and my mother-in-law as hostess gifts since we'll be staying with them on our road trip. I think I'm going to make either the pumpkin cookies from VWAV or the muffins with the leftover pumpkin I have.

I can't wait for pumpkin steel cut oats, fresh local apples, and cranberries.

Does anyone have a Pumpkin Curry recipe they really like?
