    Fall is here–the leaves are changing, the weather is cooler and the food is delicious!  Fall is by far my favorite time of year, especially for the food! Nothing excites me more than finding new recipes to try!  Check out these recipes, courtesy of, that are perfect for this Fall season:

    Pumpkin Soup

    What’s better than cozying up on the couch, putting on a movie you love and warming up to a nice bowl of soup. 



    1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
    1 large onion, coarsely chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    4 lb. pumpkin (any kind but preferably sugar pie)
    4 c. low-sodium chicken broth
    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 c. heavy cream, plus more for garnish



    • In a heavy soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and garlic and cook until golden. 
    • Meanwhile, halve, peel, and scrape out seeds of the pumpkin. Cut into chunks.
    • Add pumpkin chunks and broth to pot. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, uncovered, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer until pumpkin is fork-tender, about 30 minutes. 
    • Remove pot from heat and, using an immersion blender, blend mixture until smooth. (Alternatively, let soup cool, then blend in a blender.) Stir in cream and season to taste. 
    • To serve, ladle soup into bowls, add a swirl of cream, and garnish with pepper.

    2/3 c. heavy cream
    2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

    1 c. chopped pecans
    Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for garnish
