Time for fall to-dos like taking up quilting and giving the old pigskin a round - or at the very least wearing flannel while eating rillette. Keep things cozy with our favorite recipes and housewares fit for crisper weather.
Sliced Persimmon Dinnerware
You haven't a clue what to do with persimmons (and neither do we). Let them decorate your serving platter instead: Even if an epic kitchen disaster occurs, the dish will look damn fine.
Available at anthropologie.com, $12-$78.
Acorn Squash Bisque with Fried Sage
Add herbs to the laundry list of things even better when fried. Crispy sage leaves balance the creamy comfort of the golden gourd soup.
Pork Tenderloin with Apple Cider Glaze and Braised Red Cabbage
When it's too early for turkey, Whipped blogger Caroline Lubbers's cozy main course hits the spot.
Grandmother's Soft Gingerbread Cake
Moist, spicy, and not too sweet, the treat (which we'd eat at any meal) is another reason to listen to your elders. Credit the idea for this one to SF-based chef Nancy Oakes's grandma.
Midnight Moon Apple Pie Moonshine
Who can say no to a boozy version of America's quintessential dessert? Sip on the spirit alone or mixed into dessert for a new take on your filling next time you take your Chevy to the levee.
