As the seasons change, so does what we crave, and what we can buy fresh. The cool fall temperatures may not be here just yet, but the crisp smell in the air may put you in the mood for some glorious fall food. The Bentall Kennedy Residential Services blog team wants to get your mouth watering for a taste of autumn. Here are some seasonal recipes to try this September.
Bacon-Wrapped Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Lemon Dip
Brussels sprouts are often maligned and marginalized. A food that is popular to despise. Anyone who says that they don't like Brussels sprouts probably hasn't tried these Bacon-Wrapped Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Lemon Dip. Did we mention there is a maple syrup glaze? It's amazing how dramatically attitudes can shift once something is wrapped in bacon and doused in maple syrup. These Brussels sprouts are a genuine palette pleaser.
Caprese Corn Salad
There may be no more quintessential summer food than corn on the cob. Corn is in season through September, so grab some and make this Caprese Corn Salad! Begin by boiling 3 to 5 corn cobs in water for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the kernels. Combine with halved grape tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, chopped basil, red wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and some salt and pepper. Stir until everything is well mixed and coated in dressing. If you like this recipe, you'll find Bacon Jalapeno and Sante Fe variations included in the accompanying recipe video to try as well.
Lemon-Blueberry Cheesecake Cake
It's a question that is as old as time -- cheesecake or layer cake? This Lemon-Blueberry Cheesecake Cake takes this tough decision off your hands. Make both at once! This decadent and seasonal dessert combines rich lemon blueberry cheesecake in between moist and delicious layers of cake. You're welcome!
Baked Apples Stuffed with Oatmeal & Brown Sugar
These Baked Apples Stuffed with Oatmeal and Brown Sugar are what autumn is all about, and they're worth the effort for the aroma alone! The mixture of brown sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves stuffed into fresh baked apples can't be topped -- unless you serve it with big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
The Bentall Kennedy Residential Services blog team hopes you try some (or all) of these sensational seasonal recipes this September. Bon appetit!
