Halloween Sweet Potato Fries with Creamy Chipotle Dipping Sauce

I am a sucker for sweet potato fries.  At this very moment, I have a mental ranking the best places to order sweet potato fries running through my head.  For me, this equation is 50% about the fries and 50% about the dipping sauce.  By a ginormous margin, my favorite pairing for sweet potato fries is a creamy chipotle dipping sauce.  More than an aioli.  More than even the finest of house made ketchups.  I love the balance of the sweetness of the fry against the smoky, spiciness of the chipotle. Unfortunately, my favorite version of this combo is roughly 2300 miles from my house according to “the Google.”  So,…

Fall Flavors: 5-Ingredient Pumpkin Shortbread Bars

You guys!  These bars are insanely good.  Scratch that. Dangerously good!  And way easy to make!  Only 5 ingredients. 5!  These bars have become my new go-to recipe! Heres the deal. Start with a super simple shortbread cookie base Then a layer of pumpkin butter Followed by a streusel of shortbread crumble on top Then bake, cool, slice, and try not eat the whole pan in one sitting.

Fall Flavors: Pumpkin Butter

Last week, I swooooooned over this apple butter!  And it is seriously swoon worthy.  But, on the off chance that you don’t have 3-4 hours, I wanted to provide this 20-minute, equally smooth pumpkin butter recipe for all my fellow fall flavor loving people! I would be remiss if I said the flavors were as intense as the slow simmered then baked apple butter from last week, but this 20 minute pumpkin butter is still packed with fall spices and naturally sweetened with coconut sugar, brown sugar, and maple syrup.  All fall long, I keep jars of this stuff for last minute brunch or coffee dates with friends. Pumpkin butter…
