Round up Sunday goin’ down on a Friday because we like to keep things interesting over here! Also, I have a fun new post going live this Sunday in preparation for #AKPumpkinWeek. If you haven’t yet be sure to sign up for Ambitious Kitchen emails here so that you don’t miss out!

Let’s get to the eats. It’s prime apple picking season and I’ve got 12 incredible, healthy apple recipes that you guys are going to love. I love adding crisp apples to hearty salads, and of course baking them into warming recipes like muffins, crisps and pies.

There’s literally nothing better than fall desserts. Cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves – give me all of the cozy spices. If you need a place to start, try my homemade apple butter and slather that deliciousness on a piece of toast. So easy, so incredible. Hit up your local orchard and get ready to make your new fav recipes!
