A Sneaky Little Give Away

Time's up.
Winners announced Saturday! Thanks for entering...

Winsome readers: As promised, today is the day for my sneaky little give away. And boy am I glad. Today is one of those days, that even had I woken up at 3 AM (which I considered), it wouldn't have been early enough to get everything done. I wish I could form a committee to attend my meetings, unload my dishwasher, instruct my charges, return my phonecalls, grade my papers, plan my lessons, fill in my crossword puzzle, sew my Halloween costumes, mop my floors. The only thing I don't want any help with is my blog. I'll wake up early and stay up late and leave the laundry in heaps and be late for meetings for Prudence Pennywise. I suppose that means that I love it. I do. I love it. Thanks to my many readers for making it worthwhile for me to cook and write and gush on an almost daily basis. Thanks for your comments, emails, for spreading the word about Prudence Pennywise, and most especially your readership. I promise to never run out of money saving tips and recipes, as long as you promise to keep coming back. Deal?
As for the give-away, leave a comment telling me your favorite fall food. That's it. If you feel so inclined, you can tell your friends to enter the give-away also. You've got till Friday, September 19, 2008 5:00 PST. I'll ship anywhere.
Here's what you've got a crack at winning:
A modern slow cooker recipe book.
I really need this one for the aformentioned busy days....


And I want this one also, because pancakes just sound fabulous on a fall morning.

And this one I have, but it's so wonderful that I have to give it away again. If I could only have one baking book, this would be it. Period.

Winners Announced Friday-uh, make that Saturday....

See you Then

Well I think I need to pick a dessert and a main dish because it would be too hard to pick from both. Stew for dinner and apple pie for dessert.

Keep blogging because we love to read!

Di said...

Ooh, that's a tough one, since I love fall so much. I love apple pie (with crumb topping, not top crust), but I'm really picky about it and don't like most store-bought. And anything pumpkin except pumpkin pie (not a fan of custardy things).

Candy said...

My fall food is caramel apples! Yum!

lynne said...

I would have to say the sourdough bread sandwiches with maple mustard and ham, sharp cheddar, and apple slices- although i usually do them with tomato instead- given the idea from some fall recipes of yours-PS I LOVE this blog- it has changed my culinary life for the good!!!Thank you!!

Amy said...

I love a good homemade chili in the fall!

Laurel said...

Soup! Cooler weather screams out to me for any kind of soup. Soup and anything pumpkin....pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin rolls, etc.

chocolatechic said...

Favorite fall food?

You mean I have to pick one?

I think Brunswick stew is one of my favorites.

slush said...

My favorite fall food is apples. Apple pie, apple cake, baked apples, all favs of mine. Yum!

Amanda said...

I love fall raspberries! I make tons of raspberry jam in the fall. Pick me and I'll send you some :P

Amy and Chad Larson Family said...

Can't decide between pumpkin anything (soup, cookies, bread, pie), apple anything (with meat, in a pie, anywhere!) and any kind of soup with a really good grilled cheese sandwich.

A friend of yours, Anna (Nibley) Baker directed me to your blog and I'm so enjoying it. I've already passed it on to many family and friends.

Thanks for sharing!

Maria said...

What fun! Of course we will keep coming back! I just adore your blog and you!
I love apple crisp and my dad's apple cake! Really anything with apples:) Great giveaway. Thanks!

Sarah said...

I am so looking forward to curried butternut squash soup. I like to mix in a few spoonfuls of apple butter for sweetness. Yum!!!

Amy said...

Hey there, Prudy!!

I have to say my favorite fall foods are chili's and soups and warm breads... hmmmmm.... love those!

CB said...

Its so funny that you mention favorite fall food. I just asked What is Autumn?" on my cupcake blog b/c I live in CA and we have no seasons but I needed ideas for an autumn inspired event. One of comments that stuck out was apples. I love caramel apples. Yum! Hope I win the slow cooker book. I've been itching to use mine more... Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Jeni said...

Potatoe cream cheese soup with warm apple crisp for dessert and of coarse the carmel apples for the kids to make.

~Amber~ said...

My favorite fall food would either have to be pumpkin ice cream or pumpkin roll. I love them both. Hummm perhaps I should stuff a pumpkin roll with pumpkin ice cream, would that be overkill? :)

Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

Laura-IH said...

Mmmm...my favorite fall food is pumpkin bars, any kind of pumpkin bars. Yum!

JulyBug said...

So simple. Apples. A great apple is divine.

Phill & Allie said...

Oh this time of year I CRAVE pumpkin. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin chocolate chip bread, pumpkin crunch, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin pie. Yes, pretty much any pumpkin dessert! And soups. This is when I start scrolling through the soup section of my cookbook.

Mary said...

Hazelnut Cake!

Marjie said...

I love beef stew with baking powder biscuits and pumpkin pie. I never had apple pie until I was over 40 years old - can you believe it?

Please feel free to post my Port. bread recipe, and if you try any of my others, I'd be delighted to see them here, too!

(Lesson planning is why I use Calvert. That's not to say we don't have plenty of other practical things thrown in, just for fun. And I really need to get cracking on those costumes, too; thanks for the nudge.)

Mary Ann said...

I know I am going to sound like a kiss-up but, my favorite fall food is your roasted pepper soup. I would eat it hot, cold or in between. I would eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I would eat it everyday.The smell alone is enough to send me somewhere, I don't even know what I am saying but, I love it!!!! Does it count if it is a new favorite?

Melissa said...

Mmm...chili is my all time favorite fall food.
Oh! And anything with pumpkin

kim e said...

Fall is the time for comfort foods, as we store up for winter...so that would mean stuff like warm sausage bread, or pumpkin pie cake....so good.

Kirsten said...

Oh Prudy, this is hard...how to narrow down my favorites. I guess I will go with warm pumpkin bread with a little cream cheese on top! For our wedding I baked some 60 loaves of pumpkin bread (married in Nov)to give to our overnight guests. Great blog, I enjoy reading every day.

emncar said...

Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Megan said...

My fav is pumpkin cake with whipped cream frosting!

April said...

I think that my favorite fall food would have to be, pumpkin bread pudding, or a deep dish caramel apple pie with a crumb topping!

Cathy said...

Oh Prudy. Making me choose just one "favorite fall food" is like making me choose just one favorite Prudence Pennywise post. I guess it's possible, but it hurts my head to do it.

Pumpkin muffins.

Mandy said...

When I think about Fall, my mouth waters for soups and hearty stews. It’s still hot in Texas, but as soon as the weather changes (towards the end of October) I’m making my favorite Taco Soup in a crock pot, followed by homemade tomato basil soup. I can’t wait.

I love this giveaway too, thanks so much!

Sincerely,
Mandy

Ashley Walch said...

My favorite fall food is probably my moms yummy chicken noodle soup! I wish I didn't live so far away! Its just not the same when I make it myself.

Jewelle said...

My favorite fall recipe is soups! My mom always made the best soups. Now I am slowly learning how to make them on my own.

Janssen said...

Mmm, pumpkin cake donuts. YUM!.

Natashya said...

The ingredients I look forward to the most for fall are squash, sweet potatoes, and apples. The dish? Maybe a nice, warm, flaky chicken pot pie.

The Morgan Family said...

hands down.....apple rhubarb crisp (ala mode of course)!

Emily said...

When I think of fall foods I think of root vegetables and squash, things that are fall colors and that are warm, inviting, and hands on. An acorn squash, caramelised red onion, and apple gallette with a creamy cheese like sitlton or even goat cheese. Something that utilizes vegetables sounds good on a cool day and says warmth and comfort. Especially with a good crispy crust. You just can't beat that!

Katie said...

I love so many fall foods that I couldn't pick just one!! I decided to give you a list instead...

chili
pot roast
pumpkin pie
pumpkin cheesecake
pumpkin muffins
pumpkin anything!!

Esi said...

You're like Superwoman1 I don't know how you do it all. Favorite fall foods: butternut squash in any form, big bowls of pasta, and soups!

Rebecca said...

I think I would have to pick stew. I love just being able to throw stuff in the pot. I love your site. I find myself singing your first song all the time. Even my kids sing it.lol

gigi said...

Soups, Chili and pumpkin anything, you know, bread, pie, roasted seeds, and soup. I guess there isn't one fall favorite. Just lots of good eats but what would make everything taste better is some COOL WEATHER!!!

Good Luck with your mountain of obligations! You just need another you!

eatsandtreats said...

I love anything apple or pumpkin, but I think that apple pie and pumpkin roll top the list.

Linda said...

Favorite fall food:

It is hard to choose but I think right now it is tortilla soup. Yum!

Kyle said...

My favorite food for the fall would have to be stew....or pumpkin pie!

Nikki said...

I love pot pies in the fall. Its a time that my sister and I spend time together- making several pot pies for our families.

Peggy said...

Another food challenge. . just ONE favorite? There is so much food that I just love. I guess I would have to say a good bowl of chili with a warm apple pie for dessert. My DH and I eat this every Halloween night as a tradition so it holds a special place in my heart!

Simply AnonyMom said...

I love to make a stew filled with yummy squash, potatoes, corn, carrots and mushrooms. YUMMY.

I also love making pumpkin custard.

Those are my "go-to's" in the winter and fall.

Dee Light said...

How have I never seen your blog before!! What a fun blog. My favorite fall food is well, let's see...hard to say, but I love gingerbread it always makes me think of fall (I even blogged about it the other day). It seems we are all thinking Fall!!!

Carrie said...

Oooooh, I want to enter your sneaky little giveaway! I am a TOTAL cookbook addict!

My favorite fall food is anything with pumpkins. I love fresh pumpkin peeled and chunked, roasted in coconut oil, drizzled with honey, and sprinkled with pecans. oh yummmmmm.....

Tricia said...

It would have to be the stew I make every Halloween. YUMMY! It is a crock-pot recipe so it is perfect for the busy day. And it is easy! My kids LOVE it and it fills their bellies with hot food before they go out in the cold begging for candy!

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm glad you work hard on blogging. Trust me, we appreciate it!

I did forget to add the barley. I was typing it up at 5 a.m. when Bitty decided to tinkle on my carpet so I got distracted. It's a cup of barley and 2 cups of water to go with it.

Also, I added a lot more chicken broth then the directions said.

Be sure to check Wednesday's post! I did a candy animal's story I think Sailor will love.

And my favorite fall food is pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bread and cinnamon rolls.

MK and Co. said...

You ask difficult questions Prudy. I think my favorite fall food is your Vermont maple ham sandwiches, Mom's corn chowder, and cinnamon rolls to top it off.

Hansen Family said...

I can't think of fall without thinking of pumpkin. I love pumpkin spice cake, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin rolls, the list goes on and on....

Becky said...

Comfort food....it's all about comfort food in the fall. Homemade mac n cheese, apple pie, and chili...yes, chili....I can't wait!

nicolep said...

Hands down, butternut squash. I bake it to death then add either parmasean cheese or brown sugar depending on my mood. yuuuummmy.

Anna M. said...

Hm, my favorite fall food...that's hard because I really love food! I'd probably have to say pumpkin pie for something sweet and probably any kind of soup...like a yummy vegetable cheese soup! Thanks! Hope I win! =)

Elisha said...

I love everything about fall, but for food purposes, I have 2: #1 is Soup. I absolutely love soup! I love in the desert of Arizona and it is too hot to make and eat soup any earlier in the year. #2 is anything pumpkin themed. My husband and I love pumpkin bread, pie, cookies...even pumpkin beer! BRING ON FALL!!!

Aggie said...

Does candy corn count? Just kidding...

I love Spiced Apple anything...cider, pie, you name it! I also love a good chili in the fall.

Your blog has become a part of my day...you are awesome Prudy! :)

Katie M. said...

Homemade bread in any form. I love it fresh out of the oven.

Katie & Mark said...

I may not be an amazing cook, but I made a delicious Shepard's Pie just the other day, and it reminded me of how delicious it is when the wheather starts to cool.

My mom used to make it for my sisters and me on crisp, cool days, and I now make it for my kids.

There is something about the creamy mashed potatoes, wonderfully seasoned meat, fresh warm green beans, and that oh so tasty melted cheese-that has me screaming SHEPARD'S PIE IS MY FALL FAVORITE!

jill said...

homemade chicken noodle soup with warm bread has got to be my favorite fall food...then a yummy caramel apple for dessert!!

Cheryl said...

I love it when it finally gets cold enough in Alabama for homemade chili. I love to use it as a topping for baked potatoes with cheese and sour cream. MMMMM. (But it still isn't quite cold enough yet, so I wait.

Julie said...

Potato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches and apple crisp for dessert. Yummy! Maybe I'll make that this weekend.

Pam said...

Fall is my favorite time of year to cook. I love roasting meats and veggies, making soups and stews and baking delicous goodies. I'd say my favorite fall food is beef stew because it reminds me of my childhood, I love smelling it all day while it cooks and it tastes amazing.

Grammy said...

My favorite fall food is soup - I can't wait until it starts to turn cold so I can start adding soup back into my dinner plans.

Mrs. Morty said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pumpkin Bread in the fall

Therese said...

Homemade vegetable soup-yum!

Catherine said...

Brown bag apple pie, potato cheese soup, Disneyalnd Fritters, Homemade doughnuts . . . Sorry, I couldn't pick just one.

jennifer rogers said...

my favorite fall food has to be my grandmother's stew....it is so hearty and filling and great on a cold fall day!

Merilee said...

I think my favorite fall food is, pumpkin pancakes with homemade apple spice syrup. Mmmm. So good.

Laura said...

I'm going to echo many of your comments here: just one is almost an impossible task. I guess I must, however: Dorothy Mae Brown's Apple Spice Cake. I always make this after we take the kids to the apple orchard every fall - ya need a lot of apple recipes with 4 little apple pickers working their hardest to outdo each other, but this is our favorite.

Bunderson Family said...

I love taco soup and cinnamon rolls in the fall...just something about this makes my mouth water...oh yeah, and i love your blog...!!

Patsyk said...

My favorite fall food... hmmmm...
I have to say a nice hearty soup or stew with some crusty bread to soak up the remains at the bottom of the bowl. Yummmmmmm!

Gaengy said...

What a fun give away! I love fall! I am excited about the cooler weather and making homemade soup and homemade bread! These are 2 of my favorites!

Amy said...

ooooh yum. pumpkin roll & thanksgiving sandwiches! (marble rye w/roast turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, swiss & lettuce!!!)

love the blog-and the giveaways!

Autryville said...

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin muffins...I'm a fool for pumpkin! I have to tell you, Prudy, my 80-something year old grandmother loves to play her piano and sing songs from "her day"...I asked her if she could sing "If I Knew You Were coming..." and it was awesome! My kids love to hear it daily when I click on your blog, and it brought back a sweet memory for my grandma!

Lindsay said...

Eggs benedict or cinnamon rolls. Not really fall food but we make both for brunch on days we all get together to watch college football.

Leesa said...

I would have to say corn chowder- yum! There is nothing better than a briskly cool day to work up an appetite and corn chowder with smoky bacon is the remedy!

arisa said...

apple crisp. without a doubt, apple crisp has fall written all over it.

Christine said...

Delicious, homemade stew with ketchup. Trust me, it's amazing:)

Clumbsy Cookie said...

Cool! After this wondeful giveaway i can only offer to go your crossword puzzle! It's the least I can do!
Favourite fall food? Maybe roasted chestnuts that are sold in the street and served on newspapers cones.

emily said...

Let's be honest. I love warm apple pie with crumble topping. Still steaming enough to melt a scoop of vanilla ice cream. mmm...

Rebecca said...

I can feel the apples coming into season...they are my favorite fall food.

Sara said...

My very favorite fall food is a heavenly Butternut Squash soup. A kind neighbor brought it to me last year after I had my 2nd child. It was so creamy, a little spicy, and oh, so good. I have made it several times since then. We now are growing the butternut squash in our garden, and I am craving this soup right now and can't wait til I can make it. I will share the recipe on my blog one day. Thanks for the give away! You are a famous blogger Prudy! I look forward to reading every day.

Allison said...

I love a creamy bowl of vegetable chowder (usually with bacon involved). But when I think of Fall food I always think of apple crisp. One of my favorites is the raspberry apple crisp that you taught us to make years ago. :)

carrie said...

That's easy- anything with pumpkin or butternut squash in it. Heaven.

Amy said...

Apple crisp!! I LOVE apple crisp!!

Ali said...

Hands down soup. I love soup anytime but fall seems like the time of year when it becomes acceptable to actually begin making and eating it again. I am looking forward to trying your roasted pepper soup and a few more this fall!!!!!!

Jullee and Fam said...

My favorite fall food is this really tasty pumpkin, sweet potato, curry soup! So yummy!

Vera said...

Yummy chilli on those first cool evenings. Even my family commented that they were looking forward to chilli weather!!!!!

Julie said...

Anything pumpkin! I swear I should turn orange this time of year for all of the pumpkin that I consume. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bars, pumpkin pie, pumpkin milkshakes, pumpkin... well you get the idea.

Thank you so much for your incredibly inspiring blog!

natalie said...

One Word:
PIE!

Pecan, Apple, Lemon, Coconut, Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, Chocolate, Cherry, Caramel, Peach- and any cool combo of them all. For some reason, I just crave pie in the fall-

I love your blog- You should know that you've changed a lot about how I shop for food, and what I cook- for the better!! I was so inspired by the modest amount that you use monthly to feed your family; and I, being 22, childless- with only a hungry boyfriend to feed- was spending only slightly less that what you spend- ridiculous, right? No more! Thanks so much- for everything.

Amber said...

LOVE the blog! By far my favorite fall food is also our fall/Halloween tradition - donuts!! We make them from scratch invite the neighbors over and enjoy! Sometimes we include my other favorite - wassail!

mommyofthree said...

There are really too many favorites--but I'd have to say Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins. Yum!

Michal said...

i have never been one to narrow down favorites easily. i love fall chili, apple pie/crisp/tart, hearty stews and savory soups. crisp apples, caramel corn, pumpkin bread . . . you name it, it's probably one of my favorites!:)
i'm so glad you are doing this blog. i consult it way more often than my beloved cooking light for new recipes these days.

Jodi said...

My favorite fall food has got to be pumpkin cheesecake. I make it every chance I get. :)

Thanks for the great giveaway! And for being such a fabulous blogger!

Lauren W said...

My favorite fall drink is spiced apple cider with caramel syrup in it......as for food it would have to be my gumbo, perfect for cool weather

I'm crossing my fingers for the baking book :)Keep up the great work!

constantmj said...

Prudy,
For me, my favorite fall food is beef stew or pot roast. My sister-in-law is Aggie from Aggie's Kitchen and she directed me to your blog. It's great! Thanks!

Jennifer said...

Soup! I love when the weather turns warm enough for soup and breadsticks/cornbread/rolls.

Macy said...

My favorite fall food is pumpkin cookies. My mom's recipe. With caramel frosting. I love anything pumpkin and call the fall pumpkin season. I'm going to make cookies now...

Beth said...

Thats easy....Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and for dessert a good old fashioned British classic - Apple and Blackberry Crumble!!

Nichole said...

I just came upon your site yesterday. I am THRILLED about what you've been doing. Just my style!!!

As for my favorite fall ingredient, I'd have to go with PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN, PUMPKIN.

You can use it for anything sweet...pie, cookies, ice cream, etc. My favorite is a pumpkin trifle that I came up with a couple of years back.

But, better than sweet is savory. Pumpkin stew, bisque, fun dinners cooked in a pumpkin. But again, my favorite savory dish is PUMPKIN RAVOLI with a PINE NUT BUTTER SAUCE. It's absolutely dreamy, and I can hardly wait to make it again.

Thanks for your inspirational blog!

Nichole

Beckie said...

I love Chili for dinner and homemade apple pie for desert.

Pumpkin gingerbread. And that's all I have to say.

Maggie said...

I have a recipe for Pumpkin Turkey Chili that we all LOVE!! It is the perfect thing for when the weather starts getting cooler.

Michelle said...

Have you found the secret to making the perfect cider doughnut at home? For now, I just hop in my car and take in the luscious fall colors of Vermont while I drive right down to Cold Hollow Cider Mill for the tastiest cider doughnut around. But, oh what will I do when I am no longer here? Cider doughnuts = Fall,hands down. MMW

Perkins Family said...

I love a simple soup made with butternut squash, white beans, and spinach. It is so tasty!

jan said...

Soup, with fresh baked bread. Apple crisp or any baked fruit dessert warm with a little ice cream.

I just started reading your blog. It is so fun and all looks so yummy. I just wish I could pull myself away to cook something.

Jodi said...

I would have to say apple crisp. What's not to love about warm apple crisp (with lots of crunchy topping), a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, drizzled with caramel sauce. Yummy!

Anne said...

Anything with apples! :) Keep up the great recipes and good luck with your busy day Prudy- if anyone can do it, it's you! (seriously though, how do you do everything on top of homeschooling your kids? wow!)

Alexis said...

I love cool weather food :) Such a comfort! I have many favourites, but lately I have been really enjoying squash (whatever I can get at the store, acorn butternut etc.) cut in half and roasted with brown sugar, maple syrup, butter, salt and pepper. Yummy!

Jenni said...

Wheat sesame seed bread with butter and honey--fresh from the oven, by the fire while it rains outside.

sliceofsueshe said...

i can't believe autumn is almost here. everything is moving so fast. when i think fall, i think apples, cinnamon, squash, pumpkin! so i'd have to say pumpkin pie.

Fuji Mama said...

Ooh that is so hard because I love fall flavors. I love anything with pumpkin in it...especially a savory pumpkin soup. And to drink, how about wassail? Mmmmmm....

ariberkana said...

Pie.

Pumpkin Pie.
Steak and Mushroom Pie.

Erin said...

Fall foods - my favorite! I'd say my favorite is serving a soup in a carved out pumpkin, which is my Halloween night dinner tradition. Lots of soups would work - I'll say Cream Cheese Chicken Soup. :)
- Erin at The Sisters' Cafe

Andrea said...

I know it has been said, but I always think of a good soup or chili in the fall. (Especially on Halloween!)

I love your blog~ I am definitely becoming a better cook!

Denise said...

Fall foods.....Soup of all kinds and homemade bread...ahhh, the smell! Fall around here is also about pumpkin anything, Grandma Frei's homemade applesauce, crock pot meals, hearty dinners, desserts, cookies, and trick or treat candy!

Thanks for keeping up with the blog, you wonder woman! I love it (you know that!) and share it will everyone!

Are you seriously thinking costumes already?! You are an over-achiever! ;o)

Alissa said...

fall foods... i think i'm gonna go with Dinner in a Pumpkin. Seriously delish.

Lauren said...

pimpkin chesecake and my aunt fran's stuffing (not at the same time)

Baking Away said...

That would have to be my mom's apple pie. She got the recipe from her aunt and everyone loves it. When her aunt had a piece a few years after passing the recipe on, she realized my mom had taken her apple betty recipe and added a top crust. Needless to say it is one sweet pie!

Here's the recipe: http://bakingaway.blogspot.com/2008/09/pie-crust-and-apple-pie.html

Sharon said...

Like Julie, I like just about anything pumpkin flavored! Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie, biscotti...oh, I could go on forever!

Chili and cornbread...does life get any better???

Pecan pie and cincinnati chili!

Pumpkin cheesecake!

Brooke said...

Corn and sausage chowder is my absolute favorite. I can't wait for Florida to have a little chill and I'll be making this.

Amy said...

I would have to say that my favorite fall food is baked apples- sweet, tart, and warm from the oven. Thank you for the chance to win a fun book!

taffi said...

dinner in a pumpkin. it just doesn't get more 'fallish' than that. lol

Debinhawaii said...

I just came by to say Hi and here you are again giving stuff away! Since I have an aversion to some falls foods and no real "fall" here this is a bit tough. I think for me it is apples and hot apple cider--yum. Also any kind of soup on a cold fall day is nice!

webbie said...

My favorite fall food? Chili. I love it. I can hardly wait for it to get cool enough to eat it.

Lisa magicsprinkles said...

Caramel apple pie!

Rebecca said...

I miss the east coast fall and experiencing fall through food is great alternative!

I have trouble deciding between pumpkin ravioli with sage butter sauce and good ole pumpkin bread with cream choose spread on top.

Keep your posts coming!

The Renouf Family said...

I drive home for a few hours and suddenly you have over a hundred comments! I love reading them and your blog too.
Well, I love the entire Family Fall cookbook that you so lovingly gave us a few years ago. Favorites.....??? I love your corn chowder, pumpkin chocolate chip bread, chili, Pumpkin spice doughnuts, and the brown bag 2 hour apple pie. Must I stop?
I'm with Gigi;everything tastes better in the cool weather of Autumn.
I can already hear the extra pounds knocking at my door :).
We miss you already Prudy, Quiet Man, and two darling charges!

The Renouf Family said...

What a sweet post! You are one dedicated blogger! :)

Sophie said...

My favorite fall dish is anything with apples! Mostly, gooey caramel apples and homemade warm applesauce.

Jennifer said...

I think autumn is officially here when I see plump POM pomegranates in the store. Yum! I love them plain, in salads, and in a time-consuming yet totally delicious pomegranate jelly. Thanks Prudy for making cooking fun, delicious and healthy! I check your blog first thing every morning--even before CNN and Facebook.

Jen H. said...

My favorite fall food is apple crisp. MMMmmmmm...and so easy.

Butternut squash, cubed and tossed with olive oil then baked. Right before service toss with a bit of pesto. It is the best!

kate said...

pumpkin cheesecake, hands down. the one with the pecan/ginger snap crust. Delish!

LilRed said...

As soon as the weather cools a bit, I get a hankerin' for some yummy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I just can't eat them in the summertime. It doesn't go with the heat.

Emily Rose said...

pumpkin bread- nothing says Fall like pumpkin and all of those wonderful aromatic spices!

Jenn said...

I love apples in the fall! A warm apple crisp with a yummy brown sugar and oat crumb topping and a scoop of vanilla ice cream all melty on top. That is my idea of the perfect all treat!

alexandra's kitchen said...

butternut squash. particularly as the filling for a ravioli or the predominant flavor in a risotto, etc.

My favorite fall food is pumpkin pie. I have a recipe that uses lots of spices, mmmm creamy and sweet. Oh oh I think I drooled a bit.

Oh Prudy you are so generous!

Let's see, Candy Apples just really put me in the Fall spirit!

Emily said...

I live in Arizona, but LIVE for cooler weather. Everything about fall is great, (including the clothes!), but I confess I most love apples and pumpkin pie. In fact, just like my fall clothes, I'll take them any time in the year--even if it's a miserable 120 degrees out! :)

Meghan said...

favorite fall food - especially on a chilly saturday with a football game - home made chili with fresh hot bread. i could eat it every week.

Marie said...

My absolute favourite fall food is apple crisp made with apples that we pick up from the orchards that surround us. With some custard (for Todd) and Ice cream for me, there is no finer dish on earth!

Lore said...

My all-time favourite autumn food is a Romanian dish called sarmale.
And you don't need to worry about me I'll keep reading ;)

Grace said...

pardon me for not reading all 183569 comments, and i'm sure this has been a frequent favorite, but mine is far and away warm apple pie. :)

hot garlic said...

So glad you love it, because we love you!

Caramel Apples... duh!

And I won't make you pay International, I'll just pick it up next time I'm home.

I love fall...I think my favorite would be apple turnovers or Waldorf salad.

Adriana said...

My favorite fall meal is roasted pork tenderlion with mustard white wine sauce, we eat it at least twice a month in the fall.
As far as dessert goes, it's pumpkin roll and carmel apples!

how gracious of you to offer such a cool give away- fall is a fond time for me, the crisp air and all the food tidings.

My favorite fall food is pumpkin (Japanese pumpkin- I think it looks like a green pumpkin- squash)?

Pumpkin with our very own picked chestnuts (Marion), I often make this with curry. But roasted yams under the ground and sold on the street...those three are my true favorites...

BMK said...

Anything with pumpkin makes me very excited for fall. I think my two favorites are pumpkin bread and my pumpkin chocolate tart.

Ada Marie said...

Maple Pancakes!
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Swirl Coffee Cake!
Orange Cranberry Muffins!

Rosie said...

Oh this is fun!!

Mine would have to be dessert *grin* with my sweet tooth and an apple ^ cinnamon dessert cake served with lashings of custard is my ideal heaven in the fall.

Fall is my favorite season!!

My fave Fall Food would have to be a pot roast, slow cooked in my CrockPot all day long with TONS of veggies - onions, celery, potatoes, and carrots. There's nothing like walking in the door after a long day at work and smelling the delicious aroma...especially when the air outside is just starting to get crisp and cool!

Rebekah said...

I love fall (or autumn as we say in new zealand) and think that food that reminds me of red and gold autumn leaves are the best during this season. Cinammon features frequently in my food during autumn and my favourite food would have to be a spicy, sweet and buttery apple crumble. So good that i can eat half a pan by myself in one sitting. With vanilla bean ice cream or even just a puddle of plain unwhipped cream is the best =)

Rindy R said...

When I feel fall in the air - Pumpkin pie is what I want on my plate and maybe a cup of Butternut squash soup! Yeah Fall!!!

Hey Prudence- I'm a new reader and I am loving your blog!

I am a fall birthday girl so fall is by far my favorite time of year. Not only am I a fall birthday, I am a Halloween birthday girl so I MUST have pumpkin in the fall. Pumpkin roll, pumpkin cake, pumpkin cookies (I'm not a purist so I add chocolate chips) pumpkin pie and pumpkin bars. Anything and everything pumpkin. This year I'd like to try pumpkin soup (I'm a grown up now, I can handle pumpkin soup!)

Although I don't indulge in these very often, I would have to say any kind of pie--pumpkin, apple, blueberry, banana cream--I LOVE pie!

The Begleys said...

My kitchen could use all of these books but with a baby #4 on the way soon...the slow cooker one has caught my eye. Fall foods? SOUP! Any soup. Last night I had (at a restaurant) Tomato and Basil with goat cheese! YUM!
