Fall is Here
Ahhhh Fall, we love you. Apple picking, pumpkin spice, leaves turning color and cooler nights that invite us to get cozy. Here are a few ways you can embrace all the best parts of fall.
Make an Apple Pie
Headed to the Apple Orchard to snap a quintessential pic for Instagram or that holiday card? If you actually pick the apples (believe us, not everyone does), try putting them to good use by baking a pie or crumble! We love Nora Taylor’s Perfect Vegan Apple Pie recipe.
Everyone’s Favorite Fall Sport: Leaf Peeping
Perhaps the prize for summer ending is that in most places, the leaves change color and put on a show before dropping for the season. Our friends at Smithsonian Magazine shared an interactive map with best places to see “fall colors” and when. Depending on where you live your best bet is to head north!
Team Pumpkin Spice?
On August 24th Starbucks began another Pumpkin Spice Latte season or if you’re a devotee, just PSL. People either love it or hate it so Forbes Magazine talked to Marie Wright, a flavor scientist, on why people are so obsessed. It’s a mix of nostalgia for the holidays, scarcity (since it’s a limited release) and how our brain responds chemically to the spice blend. No matter what side of the debate you’re on, this is a must read!
Fall TV Premiers
Not only did we watch more TV during the pandemic, but we had less shows to watch because shut downs delayed filming timelines and new season releases. This fall programming is relatively back to normal, so new seasons of your favorite shows are back – including The Ellen Show Season 19 (Ellen’s farewell season) — so grab a throw, get cozy and prepare to binge watch…again. This article in TV Guide will help you navigate what to watch.
