Apple Cider Float
Apple Cider Float
This recipe is a tasty, decadent treat for the kid in all of us. It uses traditional apple cider and sparkling apple cider, so you get great flavor and a few bubbles. Try it, you'll fall in love with it! Nevermind the whipped cream, cinnamon, apples, and caramel sauce. Check your recipe supplies below and get ready for the first taste of fall.

  • Sparkling apple cider
  • Fresh local apple cider
  • French vanilla ice cream
  • Whipped cream
  • Apple slices
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Caramel sauce

  • Scoop ice cream into a cup.
  • Pour equal parts sparkling apple cider and fresh local apple cider.
  • Top with whipped cream, an apple slice, a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, a cinnamon stick, and caramel sauce.
  • Tip: If you freeze your cup for at least 30 minutes your drink will stay cold longer and won’t melt as quickly.

Stuffed Pump-Ke-Mons
This recipe is healthy and delicious—and a great way to use the pumpkins once you're done decorating. Get the kids involved to help pick out the pumpkins or scoop out the seeds for baking. Put your own twist on it with fresh veggies you're still harvesting from your summer garden.

  • Five Lil' Pump-Ke-Mon pumpkins
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked long-grain brown rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, plus additional for drizzling
  • 5 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 lb Swiss Chard, ribs removed and leaves chopped
  • 2 large bell peppers, chopped
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Cut off the tops of all the pumpkins, and scoop out the seeds and stringy insides.
  • Place the pumpkin bottoms, cut side down, in a large baking dish with 1 cup water and bake for 30 minutes.
  • While these are baking, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until soft and starting to brown, about 6 minutes.
  • Add the Swiss Chard and peppers and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the rice and spice and cook until soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • When pumpkins are done cooking, remove from water and let cool for a few minutes.
  • Stuff with rice mixture and sprinkle with grated cheese of your choice; place back in oven for 5 more minutes so ingredients are warmed through and cheese melted.
