The flavor of the month was Maple

Acorn Squash with Maple Blueberry Apple Stuffing was inspired by Baked Acorn Squash with Blueberry Walnut Filling from Taste of Home



Sausage and Cheese Crescent Squares from Pillsbury, turned into Sassy Sausage Squares, made with Maple sausage.   this is my new favorite guilty pleasure and so easy to make!

This recipe was featured on Full Plate Thursday, Miz Helen’s Country Cottage



Sauerkraut Balls from Momoe’s Cupboard brought back fond memories of a favorite restaurant HH and I used to frequent with his parents, and Sauerkraut Balls were always served as complimentary appetizers

Octoberfest Sausage Sauerkraut Balls  are made with maple sausage, onion, cream cheese and sauerkraut



Nutty Harvest Honeycrisp Kale Salad from How Sweet Eats inspired this

Loaded Kale Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette



Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas {HHjr’s creation} Asian marinated chicken with some spicy and tangy cheese in a golden flour tortilla are the ingredients in Spicy Asian Chicken Quesadillas



Roasted Carrot Soup from the Creative Life in Between with Grilled Cheese Dippers from Delish turned into Roasted Carrot and Vegetable Soup which is one of the easiest soups I’ve ever made



And the Grilled Cheese Dippers are the perfect compliment




Chicken Bacon Pumpkin Pasta Bake from A Pinch of Yum inspired this very tasty Pumpkin Mac & Cheese which was featured on Marilyn’s Treats, Thursday Favorite Things




I can’t believe I didn’t make any dessert in October 😵, I will have to remedy that over the holidays!

    sooo much yumminess! Oh I am so hungry now!

  7. There certainly has been some good eating in your “neck of the woods” and more to come. It really is hard to believe that it is November. Especially here in Florida where we are still in the mid 80’s.

  8. Wow! What a great list of recipes!

  9. I am also planning on making the potato/onion/cheese galette – sounds delish. Love the grilled cheese roll-ups and might make some for Carter when he visits!!
