MT. PLEASANT, Mich. -- Fall is now one week away here in Michigan, and we're starting to feel it! One thing we can all agree upon at Graff Mt. Pleasant is all of the great seasonal recipes you can whip up, and we'd like to share with you some of our favorites to try!
1. CHILI COLORADO
There's nothing like a big bowl of chili on a cold autumn day. This recipe adds a Mexican twist to the seasonal staple, made with pork or beef and stewed in red chili sauce.
2. APPLE CIDER DONUTS
Few things capture the taste of Fall better than the sweet combination of a tall glass of apple cider and a donut. This recipe uses apple butter rather than sauce to achieve their delicious texture and flavor.
3. PUMPKIN PANCAKES
Pumpkins pull double duty as both a fun Fall craft, as well as a tasty treat! Your taste buds will thank you for a stack of these bad boys slathered in maple syrup. Delish.
4. ROASTED ACORN SQUASH SALAD
If you're looking for something on the lighter side, this recipe combines seasonal favorites like acorn squash and cranberries with arugula for your greens, all tossed in a dressing consisting of apple cider vinegar and maple syrup for that autumn flavor.
4. CIDER-BRAISED CHICKEN, BRUSSEL SPROUTS AND APPLES
This one-pan dish sweetens braised chicken with apples. Serve it with bread or mashed potatoes to soak up all the amazing flavor.

5. PUMPKIN PIE
You weren't thinking of finishing off that autumn dinner without some delicious pumpkin pie, were you? We didn't think so.
6. CRISPY SALT AND VINEGAR POTATOES
Fall without potatoes? Perish the thought.
7. SHORT RIBS BRAISED WITH MUSHROOMS AND POTATOES
Hearty meat and potatoes with the addition of some nice Fall mushrooms. *swoons*
8. BEEF STEW
Like chili, beef stew is an absolute must during the Fall season.
9. HARISSA AND MAPLE ROASTED CARROTS
Maple roasted anything is an essential part of autumn-inspired dishes, but maple roasted carrots? That's a gift.
10. VANILLA APPLE GRATIN
If you're looking for a less fatty or sugary autumn dessert, look no further than this recipe. All the flavor of apple pie topped with a scoop of ice cream with none of the guilt.
