Sifted: Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Muffins, Harvest Tacos + More

By: Allison Milam
Hot Links We're Loving:
  • As we sip our inaugural pumpkin lattes and break out the sweaters, Flourishing Foodie’s Pumpkin Spice Muffins should be baking in the oven. These seasonal beauties are studded with chocolate chips and graced with a cloud of maple-cream cheese frosting.
  • There's a taco for every season. Now that summer's seaside fish tacos are behind us, try Harvest Tacos. The Year in Food fills corn tortillas with seasonal, roasted cauliflower and sweet corn.
  • Sticky and homey, Coconut Rice Pudding by In Praise of Leftovers puts a sweet spin on leftover white rice. After simmering with coconut milk and heavy cream, this subtly sweet dessert deserves a topping of lime zest, cinnamon or diced fruit.
  • Bell peppers may be in the supermarket all year long, but now is the time to down them at their juiciest, crunchiest peak. Though these gems shine in all their raw glory, Three Little Halves proves that some heat  in the form of Garlic Fried Peppers — can be equally enticing.
  • Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad is a true cross between summer and fall. Light enough for summer eating but loaded with seasonal ingredients like tart cherries, Love and Lemons' recipe is sweet and savory  and any bite that wrangles a cherry is a lucky one.
