Journal writing project: Fall food memories


By Abigail Hanson

What images and memories do you recall when you think of fall? Many might say the fall colors on the trees, while others think of the cool weather, hot cocoa and soup. Maybe you think of the apples and pumpkins ripening in the trees and fields, or the fun you’ve had while picking them! You could think of the delicious foods you can make with them, such as apple pie, apple cider, apple crisp, and caramel apples along with pumpkin pie, frosted pumpkin bars and roasted pumpkin seeds. I think of the fall foods because my passion for baking started with fall baking when I was a young girl, and it is still with me today.

I remember my family going out and we would pick apples in the orchard, always wanting to pick the best, the reddest or the highest in the trees. I also remember going to buy pumpkins and picking the biggest one from the field. I remember carving pumpkins and baking pies, cakes and cookies with my mom, sisters, grandmas, cousins and aunts! The house always smelled wonderful when the pumpkin pie was baking, and we would always sneak a taste of the frosting for the pumpkin bars as we frosted them! My grandma would let us use her Kitchen Aid mixer to mix the cookie dough, cake mix or frosting.

As I said, I love to bake and cook, too! So, of course, the food and baking is my favorite part of fall. Although I enjoy baking a good, old, delicious smelling apple or pumpkin pie, I also like to try new recipes!

Some of the recipes I enjoy trying include a creamy pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cupcakes, moist chocolate chip pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes, sweet pumpkin cinnamon rolls, pumpkin cookies, smooth pumpkin parfaits, apple cider pancakes, apple bread, apple pie cheesecake, apple donuts, frozen apple sundaes, a gooey caramel apple parfait, or apple cookies! These aren’t traditional recipes for most people, but that is what I love about them! I like to try new things, so that maybe someday I can make these recipes traditions of my own.

With Thanksgiving coming up I hope that you will try a new recipe to share with friends and family like I have done in my past so that maybe you can start a new tradition too. I love baking and I hope you do too! The only difference between when I was young and now is that now I have a Kitchen Aid mixer of my own!
