Baking homemade treats is a great way to spend time with family in the kitchen. It’s easy to craft creative and decadent desserts throughout the year, and controlling portion sizes and using the right ingredients can make these dishes a little less diet-unfriendly.
Weather during the months of September and October can be fickle. As a result, there may be some steamy days left even after summer is long gone. On such days, a light and refreshing meal can be ideal.
Autumn evokes all types of cozy images. There are the chilly evenings spent around the fire pit outdoors or nights spent by the fireplace sipping warmed cider. Afternoons strolling through crunchy leaves or seeking out the perfect apples in the orchard also make autumn a special time of year.
As the seasons transition from summer to autumn, it is time to incorporate hardier recipes into the dinner repertoire. But just because something seems to be more filling doesn’t mean it has to be high in calories or compromise light eating plans.
