I feel like I need to see where I’ve been in order to figure out where I’m going. I mean that in the most food sense of the phrase.
I need to start thinking about apples instead of peaches, and caramelized onions instead of avocados. I can get there… I can totally get there with time.
Right now, I just want to hold onto these Indian Summer afternoons and gloriously late sunsets.
Caramelized Mushrooms and Dumplings. It’s like Chicken Pot Pie without the chicken and with extra mushrooms and biscuits. It’s savory greatness.
Book Tour Note: I have a feeling that VERMONT will get me into the mood for the Fall holidays. I’ll be in Vermont celebrating the King Arthur Grand Opening weekend this coming Saturday, September 22! I would LOVE to see you!
Ps. I hope to be signing books in Boston in early December. More details to follow!
The combination of orange and chocolate is my go-to December comfort flavor combination. Chocolate Orange Cream Cheese Pound Cake is happy breakfasting.
Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding is reminiscent of Nutella and indulgent as all heck!
Biscuits are one of the best reasons to turn on your oven. Mushroom and Onion Buttermilk Biscuits. It’s time. It’s time…
Look at all this Fall flavor madness.
Geez, I’m just trying to prepare you… because I’m barely prepared myself.
Dad’s Perfect Sweet Potato Pie.
Honey Cranberry Cornmeal Quickbread
Pear Spice Cake with Walnut Praline Topping. Maybe I just want to make the Walnut Praline Topping and serve it with a spoon.
I feel like these tacos are a bridge between Summer and Winter. Roasted sweet potatoes are combined with quick picked cabbage, keeping the flavors grounded but bright. Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tacos. I can see it now… I’m about to eat these for weeks.
I hope you have the most lovely Sunday night. I hope there’s good tv and lots of tacos. Tomorrow: fried guacamole. Saturday: VERMONT!
Have so much fun at King Arthur! It’s crazy amazing there, and we definitely left with a huge bag of flour the last time we went there. I’ll be up in Maine for the Common Ground fair, but I hope you love Vermont! It’s where I’m from, and I think it’s pretty great!
The bowl that the mushroom and dumplings is in is my grandmother’s china pattern. She was the queen of buscuits in Little Rock and would be delighted to see that dish served in her china. It made me so happy to see it.
So glad to hear you are finally making it to BOSTON!! Please keep us updated!
Can’t wait for you to come to Boston. It will be an early Christmas for sure. Love your recipes and your writing. For me the transition to Fall is also difficult, though my issue is not so much with cooking but with what to wear! To cold for open toe shoes yet too warm for boots. And don’t even get me started on jackets… Thanks Joy for giving me something to look forward to every morning. :)
This post was mouthwateringly fantastic. I will definitely be making ALL of these recipes this fall!
I have to say the Caramelized Mushrooms and Dumplings might just be my all-time favourite Joy recipe. Thank you for an evening of delicious!
your pictures are just too much. they make me want to make everything that you post! divine, simply divine.
I promise you, buy a plane ticket to Hong Kong. AND I SWEAR to you that you will love it here! :)
i don’t doubt it!

I love King Arthur Flour. I took baking courses with them back when I was writing my thesis (History of Artisan Bread Baking in France). Helped me learn the science of good bread. I’ll always remember riding home on the back of my boyfriend’s motorcycle with 8 loaves of bread (there was more, but it was all we could fit). Hope you get to cook with them. Have fun! Enjoy the beauty.
OMG!! I’m watching The Hunger Games playing catch up with my blogs and I see VERMONT at the end of your post!!!! So I click on the link and and see that you are coming to King Arthur Flour! I live in Vermont and so I check my schedule….of course I work that day from 10-8! I can’t believe I’m going to miss it! I usually don’t comment but I never thought you would come this far East. While I’m commenting, you should know that my husband and I just got back from our honeymoon. We drove to Myrtle Beach and back. While I was driving I listened to you guys….he laughed every time you made a comment about the guys listening. I love you guys! Tracy is fabulous…I should go comment on her blog to since I never comment. Anyways, I’m sorry I’m going to miss you! Thank you for be awesome.
it looks like Vermont is a bust because of major airline issues. but thank you for much for the comment and thanks for listening to the podcast! i’m so glad you’re here!
lots of fantastic recipes. staying away from autumn for a bit longer though…then I am going to turn into a pumpkin!
these all look great, I’ll have to get to work !
I wanted to tell you that my 10 year old insisted that I make your chili cheese fries. She helped me make them and even overlooked her aversion to W. sauce (anchovies) – they were a great hit around here, she’s bringing the 4 leftover ones to school for lunch tomorrow :)
thanks, I love stopping in to visit
Your food photos always make me hungry! Please come south (Charleston, SC to be exact) so I can come have you sign my cookbook!

I would LOVE to hang out at King Arthur! It’s the only flour I use, I have their cookbooks, and well, it would be awesome. Have a ball!
And what a great roundup of food…some forgotten gems here, Joy! Thanks for reminding me that I want to make that pound cake!
COME TO BOSTON PLEASE! I haven’t been able to get the cookbook yet (even though I’ve borrowed it from the library), but if you’re going to be signing books here, I’m totes gonna buy one….
i’ll be there in december!
