Fall Flavors At Their Finest

Hello everyone!  I’m back after a weekend off celebrating my best friend’s wedding!  I’m going to recap the wedding tomorrow (waiting to get some pics), but tonight I want to highlight our amazing dinner!

It was full of my favorite fall flavors!

First, I made one of my absolute favorite pizzas — butternut squash, apple, spinach, red onions, goat cheese, and ricotta cheese.

Best pizza ever!

I found the recipe on Julie’s blog and followed it almost exactly except that I roasted the honeycrisp apple with the squash and red onions, and I added ricotta cheese to the crust before topping it with spinach, the roasted veggies and apples, and goat cheese.

This pizza is fall on a plate and I LOVE it!

Making this pizza reminded me of another one of Julie’s recipes — two-ingredient pumpkin cookies using these ingredients.

I used the same two ingredients, but added pumpkin pie spice to the top of them before baking them.  I used to make the cream cheese frosting with these, but decided not to this time.  And they were amazing anyway.

I made the cookies for James, but I was craving dessert of the ice cream variety, so I had one of these:


And, of course, topped it with some caramel sauce.

Such a good night of eats!  I absolutely love fall flavors, and honeycrisp apples, butternut squash, and pumpkin are the best!

Now I’m full and happy, so I’m off to read a bit with Milo Bear.

Check back tomorrow for the recap of Steph’s fab wedding!


  1. That pizza looks fantastic! I’ve been seeing it all over the place, and I’m dying to try it, but I don’t think my husband will eat it :(

  2. I am a huge fan of ricotta cheese, those combos on that pizza look bomb!

  3. I’ve made 2 ingredient pumpkin cupcakes with those same two ingredients. They were so good!

  4. Pizza looks great!! Butternut squash on top is a great idea.
