Fall 2013 Cooking Corner

Fall 2013

Pumpkin almost always steals the spotlight in the fall, from your morning coffee to your dinner ravioli. So this year, we want to share the love with some of the other sweet and savory stars of autumn: rich nutmeg, sweet cinnamon, smoky cardamom and pungent cloves. A colorful palette of seasonal flavors will spice up your dishes and bring some of that beautiful, Aspen-colored charm into your kitchen. 

Check out the recipes below, and follow our "Flavors We Crave" Pinterest board for all sorts of seasonal cooking and baking, guaranteed to have a warming effect on cool, crisp nights.

The Spices of the Season

Vegetarian Chili
This vegetarian version of a tailgate favorite includes cinnamon, cocoa powder and dark beer. Simmer it in a slow cooker during the game, pair it with some warm Brown Butter Cornbread and don't hold back on the garnishes.

Cardamom Streusel Coffee Cake 
This comforting treat is great for brunch or dessert, but it may require a chef's hat and an apron. If you're up for a culinary challenge, bake and grind fresh and fragrant cardamom pods for this delightful snack.
