Recipes in my Thoughts
Fall is not only my favorite season, but my favorite time of year for cooking and baking! Here are some new recipes I've tried and loved lately:
When I saw this one I was more than skeptical. A chocolate cake that uses cooked quinoa in the batter? But if there's a foodie blogger that I trust, it's Mel. So when I was searching for a gluten-free dessert to take to a family gathering last week, I gave this a try. And the verdict? WOW.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake with Whipped Chocolate Frosting
Also from Mel's Kitchen Cafe, this recipe for sweet pork burritos. We loved these, and the recipe made enough filling mixture that I was able to freeze some to fill more burritos the following week.

Ree posted about this Skillet Chicken Lasagna, and I wasn't sure whether to try ricotta cheese or sour cream in the sauce, so I used some of both! So good.

A trip to the apple orchard last week meant that it was time to pull out my very favorite apple pie recipe.
Brown Butter Creamy Apple Pie
And two fantastic recipes for baked donuts that have both made successful appearances at our Saturday morning breakfast table in recent weeks!
