Ben’s birthday was a few days ago and for once I got him something that a.) he wasn’t expecting, and b.) he actually loved. A weighted blanket! (That’s a good indication of how old we’re getting. 😂) This thing is 15lbs of soft, fuzzy, pure dead weight and although 15 pounds doesn’t sound like a lot, it feels like a giant sack of potatoes laying on top of you. After giving it a test run, I had Ben drape it over me then almost immediately had to throw it off as it was giving me c-section-operating-room-warm-weighted-blanket-vibes. Yet, here I sit two days later writing this post with the dang thing folded in half then in half again over my lap to concentrate the weight. I’m losing feeling in my calves, but am also kind of here for it?

All that to say, blanket weather is finally here! The sun sure is shining, but there’s an undeniable chill in the air and I’m already taking a deep dive into some of my favorite fall recipes. This ultra cozy dish is going on the stove after pumpkin-patching this Saturday, I bought a sack of Honeycrisp apples at the grocery store earlier this week to make Apple Crisp on Sunday, and Gwen’s currently gobbling these seasonal oatmeal bars for breakfast, snack, and every other eating opportunity in between. I tell you what, girlfriend’s got an APPETITE these days. You go, Gwen!

Anyway, since fall is moving full steam ahead, I thought I’d share my Ultimate Fall Cooking Bucket List today. If you love  appetizers, desserts, main dishes and salads starring apples, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and greens – all gluten free, of course – then this recipe roundup is for you. 35+ comforting recipes celebrating all that fall has to offer.

That said, the season is short and this list is long, so let’s get cooking!

(Psst! Did you catch the 6 fall dessert recipes you HAVE to try?)
