Wow!! I’m so proud to say that my readers are GREAT cooks! The recipes that came in for the 2013 Best Fall Recipe Contest all sound so delicious! And while I truly think that every entry is a winner, there were 5 that were standouts so I present to you the 5 finalists:
#1: This Cheddar Potato Corn Chowder, submitted by Penny of From Harvest to Table blog, pretty much had me at “cheddar” because I adore that cheese and look for any and all reasons to enjoy it! The fact that it is a creamy and delicious soup perfect for chilly Fall evenings is a total bonus!
#2: These Sweet Potatoes submitted by Liz of the Fresh Plate blog, made from freshly mashed sweet potatoes (not canned) sound delectable to me! I love “real” sweet potatoes and cook tons of them throughout the Fall and Winter months… the sweet, crispy topping on these make them irresistible!
#3: Salads aren’t just for Spring and Summer as this crispy Spinach Salad with Apples, Proscuitto and Goat Cheese submitted by Kelley from Eight by Five blog proves! It is crunchy, creamy, fresh and savory all at once… in a word YUM!
#4: What captures the flavors of Fall better than Something Pumpkin? This delicious dessert with just a bit of a crunch submitted by DeDe of Designed Decor has all the flavors of Pumpkin Pie but with the density of a cake – oh, my!
#5: If Fall had an “official” meat in our house, it would definitely be Pork. I don’t know why but I tend to cook it most often in the Autumn… but I’ve never made a Cranberry Balsamic Pork Tenderloin and now I can’t wait to try this recipe from Liz!
