*FALL into WINTER Recipe Roundup*



This has been so exciting for me guys! I can't wait to try all these enticing recipes. Thanks to everyone who shared a recipe for the roundup.
Our chili *brrrr* season will go smoothly now that we have all these toasty and tasty recipes to enjoy. :)

Sooo, here we gooooooooh. . .

ONE:
Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling made by the lovely Bunny @ Bunny's Warm Oven.
Cream cheese is such a miracle food, it seems to make everything even more delicious. Don;t you think? This pumpkin roll looks so Thanksgivalicious! And the cheese swirls are so pretty when cut into slices. I don't think I would have a problem eating the whole thing in one sitting.


TWO:
Rainy Day Vegetarian Chili made by the delightful Ms. Molly at Falling Molly . This is such a great idea! It looks wonderful and very simple to make. Chili will definitely warm your cheer up on a grey and rainy day.
You should also check out her delicious-looking Butternut Squash Soup.




THREE:
Mr. John's Meatloaf (Itaian style) made by the food-talented Kamali of Simple Food. Her food always looks really good. This meatloaf is definitely one of those ultimate comfort foods for cold weather. My favorite part is that thick red sauce baked on top. And of course you have to serve it with some fluffed-up mashed potatoes. YUM!


FOUR:

'I love you' pie made by the darling Mrs. Laundrybasketcase of The Linen Cupboard.
I can't wait to try this adorable pie! Even though Mrs. LBC has a blog about house-cleaning*to say the least*, she is also quite talented in the kitchen as well. That "I love you' is such a cute touch.



FIVE:

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Rum and Maple by the magical Stef atCupcake Project. These cupcakes will surely make you the star at the holiday party you bring them to. Especially with their gourmet touch of rum and maple. Scrumptious!


SIX:
Jennie's Honey Wheat Bread made by my wonderfully talented sister-in-law Jennie. Baking a nice fluffy loaf of bread on a winter's day sure sounds comforting. Once you make this bread you may never buy bread from the store again. The slow rising process is worth it right? :)
HONEY WHEAT BREAD:
1 pkt active dry yeast
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup honey or dark molasses
2 tbs soft shortening
2 tsp salt
5 1/2 -6 cups whole wheat flour

AND LASTLY. . .
The lovely princess of ice cream, Bethany of Scoopalicious *My favorite Ice cream blog* submitted these cookies below. I made them this weekend as I happened to have all the ingredients already and needed a picture*heehee*. they were really super good especially with a nice tall glass of milk. You really gotta try these ones. SERIOUSLY! I was even thinking to bake them a little thinner and then sandwich vanilla ice cream or cream cheese in between two cookies. Wouldn't that be so heavenly? !!!

Bethany says:
"These are cookies my mom has made for as long as I remember and all I know is that she got the recipes from her best friend who she has known since kindergarten. Nothing says fall to me like these cookies. Word to the wise? Don't tell people what kind they are until they have tried them...the pumpkin sometimes turns them off, but once they have tasted them, they don't care what's in them, as they are SO good!"
