Awesome Autumn Recipe Roundup

So, I know I jumped the gun a bit on fall this year by posting a pumpkin bread recipe like, 5 seconds after Labor Day, and the spiced applesauce cake while it was still August. Next to Christmas, fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, and I apparently get a bit over-excited about seasonal cooking.

Before I share any additional fall recipes, I wanted to highlight a few that I've posted over the past couple years that deserve some love, and send you to a few blogs who also have delicious looking fall goodies in their archives. I scoured the recipe indexes of some blogs I love to find their most delicious looking fall recipes, and assembled them below for your baking and cooking pleasure.
