Fall Recipes

I thought to kick off this beautiful fall season it might be fun to share a yummy, warm fall recipe! One of my favorite things about cool weather is being able to enjoy all kinds of soups, chilis, and stews. As soon as the weather hits 75 degrees, I’m dusting off my crockpot and searching for new recipes on Pinterest and Google. I rarely ever follow one recipe exactly. Typically I will combine about 3 recipes into one, making it truly my own. There’s no shame in getting a little inspiration! If you aren’t a big fan of salmon you can change it up and add shrimp, lobster, or crab. Make it your own!
