The fall season is one of our favorites around here. There’s something magical about the cool, crisp mornings followed by warm afternoons that inspires us in the kitchen. We love watching the colors change on the trees knowing that the holiday season is just around the corner.
As we welcome in fall this year, we’re sharing our favorite fall recipes. We hope you’ll enjoy them too.
Everyone loves a good appetizer. Whether you’re cooking for a small group of close friends or planning to entertain at a large gathering, bruschetta is going to be a hit. We love a traditional Italian style bruschetta that features ripe Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, parmesan cheese, garlic, and of course olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Check out our go-to recipe here.
2. Roasted Acorn Squash
Squash takes center stage in the fall from butternut to acorn to spaghetti there are tons of recipes out there featuring these tasty options. One of our personal favorite sides for any meal is roasted acorn squash. All you need is a little of your favorite olive oil to drizzle on top and you can have an easy and delicious meal ready in no time.
This dish is also a great one to experiment with different olive oils to find the one you like best. We recommend any of our ultra-premium olive oils as well as garlic and rosemary.

3. Corn Bisque with Crispy Fried Shallots
There’s nothing better in the fall months than a good soup or a hearty, warm chowder. There are dozens of options to choose from and any of them will be great in a pinch. One of our personal favorites features another fall classic – corn.
This corn bisque is delicious and the best news is, that it’s best when made in a pressure cooker. That means you can have a piping hot meal in a short amount of time. What’s not to love about that?

4. Bacon Cheddar Quiche
Breakfast is a meal that we can’t forget to mention, and one of the best ways to start a day in the fall is with quiche. Not only will it help ensure you start the day with a full stomach, but your house is going to smell delicious for the whole day. Bonus that leftover quiche (if you’re lucky enough to have some) is an easy dish to re-heat throughout the week while maintaining its flavor.
There are lots of ways to make an excellent quiche, but if you’re looking for a new recipe that will become a favorite then give this one a try – https://www.dolivotastingbar.com/recipes/bacon-cheddar-spinach-quiche/
5. Cauliflower Stir Fry w/Peanuts
If you’re like us then in the summer we try to avoid cooking indoors to help fight the heat. That means when fall hits we’re ready to fire up the stove top and oven again and that means a good stir-fry is once again in season. One of our favorite parts of a stir fry is that it truly can be a last-minute throw together using whatever vegetables and meat that you happen to have on hand.
While any stir fry is a great option, we can’t help but rave about this vegetarian version featuring cauliflower, peanuts, UP extra virgin olive oil, chili sauce and more.
6. Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake
We’re rounding out our fall list with a delicious dessert that’s the perfect combination of fall flavors. Cranberry (of course) and orange are two flavors that always pair well together, but they really highlight the fall and winter seasons for us.
Baking is the perfect weekend project so be sure to grab these ingredients and whip this up sometime soon. https://www.dolivotastingbar.com/recipes/cranberry-orange-olive-oil-bundt-cake/
