Fall Test Kitchen & Crunch Top

We asked for recipes, and you guys delivered! We cooked up a storm in our GND test kitchen and want to share our favorites while sipping on a cocktail. (Also make sure you are signed up for our newsletter to get a pdf of all the recipes shared!)


Americano (inspired by Kelsey's trip to Essex)

  • equal parts Campari and sweet vermouth
  • topped with soda
  • served over ice and garnished with an orange slice

Erica made maple puff muffins, cranberry salsa, warm potato salad with goat cheese, and crunch top sweet potato souffle. Kelsey tried pumpkin soup (great with the book Pumpkin Soup), peanut butter spice apple dip, Mushroom crostini, pumpkin cheesecake pie with gingersnap crust.

We thought we'd share this salsa recipe right here in case you need a last minute appetizer for Thanksgiving tomorrow. It's also great on a leftover turkey sandwich. Thanks Nichole!

Quick Cranberry Salsa

  • 1 bag cranberries
  • 1 bunch green onions (trimmed)
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 seeded jalapeño
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Just throw your ingredients together and blend til you get a desirable texture. Leave in the fridge overnight for the tartness to mellow. Enjoy with some colorful corn chips!
