I especially love putting those apples into apple pie! My grandma made the best apple pie. Perfectly sliced chunks, lots of cinnamon (but not too much), crispy crust. I'm planning on making it soon. Maybe I'll share the recipe (if your lucky).
This could possibly move up to #1 on the list. My family, friends, boyfriend are crazy for this stuff. Every year I host a fall dinner and this year, butternut squash ravioli is on the menu. It's best with a little drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of pine nuts. Yum!
I first tried Pumpkin soup on a trip to Australia and let me tell you, the market in Melbourne got it right. Complete with a dollop of sour cream on the top, this is a rich and creamy delight. I really can't eat too much of it, but one cup in the fall is a must.
I LOVE clam chowder. Probably because it reminds me of college and my time in Boston. Every fall my parents would visit me at BC and we would wander down to Faneuil Hall or to the famous Oyster house and have a huge bowl. It was always so fresh, with just the right consistency (not too watery, not too creamy). Just eating it reminds me of New England.
