18 Awesome Fall Flavor Recipes

September means we can finally eat all things pumpkin and apple with no apologies. I mean, I probably wouldn’t apologize anyway, but there does seem to be a lot of pumpkin shaming, and I want none of it. There don’t really do apple picking or pumpkin patches in the UK, as far as I can tell, so I have to bring these flavors into my kitchen all on my own. Here are 12 great pumpkin recipes and 6 equally awesome apple recipes to bring these fall flavors into your life.

Cran-Orange-Apple Juice | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

How’s the new year treating you, my darlings? I’ve been racking my brain for days for what I should set as my new Year’s resolution. We all know I can’t diet. I’ve already set a goal to exercise every day, which probably won’t last, but I’ll give it a go. But it’s not a real change, is it?

I’m looking for Oprah-level, best self, being completely awesome sort of stuff. Perhaps my resolution should be to lower my expectations. Does anybody else go through an existential crisis at the beginning of January? There’s a lot of pressure to figure out how to make yourself perfect, and I’m so susceptible to it. On the other hand, it’s just one day, and there are so many to come. Perhaps I’ll take it one day at a time.

Cran-Orange-Apple Juice | How to be Awesome on $20 a Day

I mixed up something super simple to get us started. Cran-Orange-Apple Juice is going to be there for you in so many ways. Perhaps you’ve been drinking non-stop prosecco for the past week, and you need something innocent and delicious to drink. Perhaps you hate eating fruit, so you’re at least going to try drinking some. Cran-Orange-Apple Juice is here for you.

This sweet and lovely mixture can also come to the rescue at your next party as well. It’s particularly useful if you have some people at your party who can’t or won’t be drinking alcohol. This juice can be mixed with soda water to make it sparkly just as nicely as it can be mixed with vodka or added to a glass of sparkling wine. Obviously, it would make a great drink for kids as well. See, everyone’s happy?

Pork & Apple Hot Pot | How To Be Awesome on $20 a Day

Pork & Apple Hot Pot

Pork & Apple Hot Pot | How To Be Awesome on $20 a Day

I’m sitting on my sofa, watching The Golden Girls, and thinking about how I don’t want to write a blog post. I struggle to find any space for creativity at the end of a long day. At the end of a work day I just want to throw my to do list out the window. Work out? No thank you. Make dinner? Do I have to? Write a bunch of words that no one will read? Surely it can wait until tomorrow. But then I don’t want to do it tomorrow either.

I’m just so crap at staying motivated. Tell me your secrets, friends. How do you keep up with your life? And before you suggest it, no I can’t afford a maid. 

Pork & Apple Hot Pot | How To Be Awesome on $20 a Day

This Pork & Apple Hot Pot is decidedly not a quick and easy week night dish. I mean, it’s easy, but it’s anything but quick. It’s a slow cooking autumn fantasy. Apples, onions, and bacon cook down to a soft flavorful mush that makes your pork unbelievably tender. I’m normally not a pork chop person, but man, this is tasty.

A bit of good news for you. This whole thing can be cooked in one pot. Just make sure you have something that can transfer from the stove top to the oven. A bit more good news. This will make your house smell heavenly.

Prep Time
30 min
Cook Time
3 hr
Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  2. 3 onions, peeled, halved, and sliced into half moons
  3. 250 grams bacon (of the streaky variety)
  4. 50 grams flour
  5. 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  6. 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  7. 4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  8. Salt and pepper
  9. 6 boneless pork loin chops
  10. 4 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  11. 750 ml apple juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F (170C). Heat the oil in an oven proof pot and cook the onions over medium heat for about 10 minutes until soft. Remove the onions to a separate bowl.
  2. Scissor your bacon in small pieces into the hot pt and cook until the pieces start to crisp up. Remove the bacon to the same bowl as the onions and mix them together.
  3. Put the flour, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, salt, and pepper into a zip top bag and give it a bit of a shake to combine. Add the pork chops two or three at a time and shake it all about to coat the pork in the seasoned flour. Shake off the excess flour, and sear the pork in the hot pot for a couple of minutes per side and remove to a plate. Repeat until all the pork is seared.
  4. Tip the remaining flour into the pot and give it a whisk until it soaks up the oil. Slowly add in the apple juice, whisking it with the flour after each addition to get rid of any lumps.
  5. Add half of the onion bacon mixture back to the pot, then three of your pork chops, followed by half the apples. Repeat the layers again.
  6. Pop the lid on the pan and put the whole thing in the oven to do its magic for three hours. Your pork will be tender and the apples and onions will be soft.
