Fall Guide: My Must Haves and Favorites
Hello there friends, I know that I usually post recipes here but this a space were I share my thoughts and other topics, I made a poll the other day on my Instagram stories asking if you wanted me to share some of my Fall Favorites and most of you voted yes! So here it goes!
I don't know what's the deal about fall, I don't know what kind of magic spreads all over us, the hype is real people! Something heart warming about it even living in a city were fall last about 3 seconds (haha!). Suddenly everything becomes so comforting, love the smell of the spices, the warm colors, the fun activities such as going to a corn maze, picking a pumpkin, baking, making casseroles, and getting to wear fuzzy socks.
My fall favorites are not all about pumpkin, but SPICES!
- Maple flavor
- Sweet Potatoes
When I was in elementary school my school used to organized a trip to a corn maze close to my city and I remember always having a wonderful time; we used to pick a pumpkin, go to the corn maze, have lunch and just have a great time! So this year I'm planning with some of my favorite persons in the world AKA my friends of the childhood which I've known for more than 11 years a trip to the corn maze just to remember old times.
Another of my favorite activities during the fall, it's to bake! If you still haven't checked my fall themed recipes go ahead and go nuts! They are all delicious and eat to make. I like doing casseroles and slow cooker recipes so I'm planning on doing some this season too!
Now! These are some of my favorites, I will briefly describe each one of them and how I use it!

I've been in love with these tastable made from organic ingredients where the main ingredient is quinoa. The best thing about them is that they taste legit like maple and they only fave 1 gram of sugar! I love them with a drizzle of pili nut butter or any other nut butter.
