Combine two favorite fall flavors to make the ULTIMATE Thanksgiving dessert: Praline Pumpkin Upside Down Cake! Bourbon pralines create the base/top of this cake, then pecans add decoration.

Flip after removing from the oven and free from the pan, then drizzle with bourbon caramel sauce for the finishing touch. This cake is decadently moist and perfect!

These gooey-in-the-middle blondies make a delicious fall dessert!
It feels like the fall, so we should make Crawfish Étouffée this weekend! This classic Louisiana entree makes a comforting meal for a chilly evening and easily doubles (or triples) to feed a crowd. Peeled crawfish tails cook low and slow with the Cajun trinity -- onion, green bell pepper and celery -- and other ingredients. Once the flavors meld, the dish is served over rice with green onions and parsley. What's not to love? #foodiefootballfans
