Apple Cider Pancakes: Homemade pancakes are super easy. Apple cider stands in for the milk in this recipe. The cider and a few spices really make these stand out.

Pumpkin Pie Waffles: These little gems are made with oat flour and sweetened with a touch of orange juice. To really finish these waffles off, top them with pumpkin butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Almond butter would be a delicious topping to try as well.  There is no limit to flavor possibilities with these

The Everything Doughnuts: This doughnut is like a blank canvas for savory options.  It’s a basic buttermilk doughnut without any added sugar and then covered with the classic everything topping.  Garlic, onion, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and salt…the works, people!

Montreal Bagels: slightly sweet, chewy, and covered generously with poppy or sesame seeds. Perfect served with cream cheese, smoked salmon, tomatoes, onion and capers.

Cranberry Orange Walnut Bread: A loaf that is studded with cranberries and walnuts…orange juice and zest brighten up the whole shebang … enhancing the tartness of the cranberries…making this loaf of sweet bread oh so heavenly and delicious.  And the glaze…well, kinda the best part.

Korean Jujube Harvest Punch: No alcohol, no caffeine, no chemicals, no high fructose corn syrup, no gluten. Not only this drink is good as hot remedy for cold, but it will make a great cold punch as well. Perfect for festive gathering. After you simmer all the ingredients, sweeten with sugar/honey and chill. Then pour ginger ale to mix and garnish with pine nuts. Superb fall punch ready in snap.

Raspberry Black Pepper Champagne Cocktail: This is a good drink to serve at a gathering or get together because you can make a big pitcher and then have everyone pour themselves a glass or two (or three). To prevent the champagne from losing it’s fizziness, mix everything together except the champagne.

Sweet Potato Gratin: Switch things up from the traditional sweet potato and marshmallow casserole with this recipe. The combination of sweet and regular potatoes provides the perfect balance of sugar and starch.
