Thanksgiving is coming and we — and our bloggers — can’t have enough of Thanksgiving-related entries. So we’re bringing them on! This time, have a look at blogs which feature fruits that echo the juice of the season.
Fall leaves may fall, but it’s raining apples at The Amateur Gourmet! The blog posts three yummy apple recipes — baked apples, apple cake, and apple cobbler — in addition to some notes on apples that are great for baking. Supermarket versus farmers market apples. Whether you get your apples from an air-conditioned warehouse or not, this blog is worth the read for some fun knowledge as you enter his “apple nirvana”.
Talk of Tomatoes – Pomegranate, pomegranate, pomegranate
This time it’s raining pomegranate! Talk of Tomatoes shares a POMegranate-themed party that screams the deep colors and flavors of the season. This tasty theme party can inspire you to throw your own (pumpkin party?). Featured menu includes Pomcella (a pomegranate version of limoncello), Pomegranate Nut Baked Brie, Fish Cakes with Chipolte Aioli & Pomegranate Corn Relish, and the list goes on… and you will never tire of looking and thinking of your own fruit/vegetable inspired dinner.
This is a lovely blog with thoughtful entries, nice pictures, and recipes + cooking tips! The recent entry features a beautiful, cold autumn day, lemongrass-flavored celeriac and sweet potato soup with bay scallops, and spice apple and kasha crumble. If that’s not enough to make you hungry, go read up the blog and salivate on those pictures as well.

Nothing can be granier and rustic than autumn, and In Praise of Leftovers shares a recipe that will make you want to stay in bed with a bowl of cereal. Cozy up with nibbles from toasting granola in the oven, and have a cozy cold day with the sour, sweet and nutty swimming in your milk. Yum.
Dinner with Julie – Honeyed Apple Tarts
Yes, we get to have another apple recipe. Dinner with Julie shares a very simple honeyed apple tart recipe which was whipped up by his nephew. It’s sweet, simple, and a goodie any aunt would appreciate sigh.
