Fall Cooking Contest

Now that the carefree days of summer are behind us, simple cooking and healthful meals at home can help you get back in the swing. The Farmgirl kitchen is already warming up for the cool months ahead, with lots of simmering soups and roasting vegetables.

When I’m facing a jam-packed week, my to-do list always includes a trip to the farmers market. There’s nothing like a stroll through the colorful stalls to jump-start your week and flavor it with the season.

What do you cook when the air turns crisp and leaves crinkle underfoot? Do you crave apple desserts, mounds of dark greens, or roasted roots? Farmgirl readers would love to know!

To enter the contest, send in your favorite fall recipe, along with a little information about you – where you’re from, what you like to cook, and the source of your cooking inspiration. You have until October 31st and can enter as many times as you wish.

All recipes will be acknowledged and tested. The winning recipe will be announced on November 1st. The winner will receive this indispensable set of knives from Kyocera (valued at $65) from the Farmgirl Store. Slice an apple with one and you‘ll never cook again without them.
