30 Seasonal Recipes to Cook in September

30 incredible, seasonal recipes to cook in September! You’ll find a delicious mix of sweet & savory recipes for every meal of the day using using apples, broccoli, leafy greens and even a pumpkin sneak peek. Enjoy a new recipe each day this month, and celebrate delicious produce all month long.

Happy Labor Day weekend! Summer technically isn’t over until September 23rd, so we have plenty of time for patio season, grilling, and hoarding as many fresh berries as possible. At the same time I think it’s appropriate to start whipping up cozy recipes with delicious Fall flavors. PUMPKIN ANYONE?

September is pretty much the best of both worlds and I’m sooo ready for it.

To kick off the month I rounded up 30 incredible, seasonal recipes for you guys to cook for each day. These recipes are the perfect combination of fresh and comforting — you’ll find hearty salads & one pan meals, plus plenty of breakfasts & baked goods to kick off fall. Get ready to pick the last of the basil in your garden, and then be sure to hit up your apple orchard to get these on your table asap.

If you make any of these recipes, be sure to leave a comment and let me know how you liked it! Snap a photo and share it in our Facebook group or on Instagram with #ambitiouskitchen. Enjoy, xo!
