Autumn is harvest time, which means there are loads of delicious fruits and vegetables around for us all to enjoy, and today the Independence Place Blog has recipes to share featuring apples, pumpkin, and squash. Perhaps you picked some up at one of the local farmer’s markets in the Cranston, RI area — which we wrote about in last month’s post. Get ready to turn your apartment kitchen into a fall festival with these tasty recipes!


Country Apple Dumplings

"Oh [my goodness]!! Who knew that fresh apples, crescent roll dough, and citrus soda could make such a wonderful treat!"


Apple Turnovers

"Delicious, yet so easy to make. Anyone can do these classic apple turnovers!"


Spiced Apples

"I'm not sure where this recipe comes from, but I make it for holiday dinners and always receive compliments."


Switching gears, how about that classic, pumpkin pie? On the Cutestuff Cooks blog, we found several pumpkin-based recipes, a Turtle Pumpkin Pie, a Pumpkin Pie Cake recipe, plus a Pumpkin Roll recipes. We hit the pumpkin jackpot here!

It’ll rock your world in the most wonderful way.”


After taking a look at all of the squash recipes available on, we couldn’t choose just a few, so take a look at all of these wonderful squash recipes, and try one this month! However, we absolutely had to share this one: Candied Acorn Squash.
