Sweet Pumpkin Fritters

Recipe for sweet fried pumpkin doughnut fritters, flavored with cinnamon and ginger and dusted with powdered sugar.

You want these, don't you? Admit it. You know you want them. Hot, fried balls of sweet pumpkin flavored dough. Just a touch of spice, without overwhelming you, and tossed with glorious powdered sugar. It's everything we love about summer street fair food but at home, autumn style.

Vegetarian Tortilla Pie

Recipe for layered one pan dinner of  beans, vegetables, sauce, cheese, tortillas and southwestern seasonings.

In case you all were wondering what the most popular dish on my blog is (I'm 100% sure that none of you were wondering this), it is my Mexican Tortilla Pie. It's crazy good, has been featured in a magazine and is served for dinner on repeat in my house. It uses ground beef but I decided to make a vegetarian version of it for non-beef eaters and for any meatless Monday dinner makers. Also, I was out of beef.

Loaded Turkey Sandwich with Sweet and Spicy Mango Honey Sauce

Recipe for a thick turkey and vegetable sandwich, topped with a sauce of mango, honey, lemon and spices.

Is it back to school time where you are? Or do you just have a need for a good desk lunch, day in and day out because that's definitely the case for me. Either way, you've probably got sandwiches on repeat.

Roasted Pear and Arugula Salad with Toasted Walnuts

Recipe for a salad of peppery arugula, roasted pears and toasted walnuts with a honey vinaigrette.

I was in the park the other day, chatting with a few of my neighbors while our dogs played, and we all said how we felt this was a long summer. Maybe due to life events, maybe because it was such a hot one but either way, we were trying to decide if we were happy to see it end. We're not looking forward to snow and early sunsets but we're still a few months away from that. For now, we're kind of looking forward to the slight cool down of September and the energy the city gets after Labor Day.
