Fall cooking

Welcome, fall. Or shall we say, Crockpot and football season.

by Shea Homes Colorado on November 9, 2015

 

Goodbye, summer heat—and our fixation on salads, grilling, and anything that doesn’t heat up the kitchen. Fall kicks off the season for tasty, hearty fare that warms up your belly, soul, and sometimes, happily, your kitchen too.

Now that the Denver Broncos are back in business, why not gather with your fellow neighbors over a football game and, perhaps, a crockpot full of barbecue? In honor of our Shea Colorado communities, so well-known for its friendly get-togethers, we have created several Pinterest boards for you to explore—to get your mouth watering with seasonally inspired recipes, and your creativity awhirl with ideas for crafty autumn party décor. Here are some highlights.

Starting with crockpots, here’s a board devoted to the art of fix-it-and-forget-it. If you are operating under the impression that slow cooking menus are limited to soups and beans, check out the recipes for a savory and light sweet potato gratin, Chinese-style barbecue, and lasagna described as “the easiest lasagna you will ever make.” Sold.

On Shea Homes’ Welcome Fall, you’ll find more slow cooker recipes, as well as many other kinds. You’ll never miss your summertime grill with this Peppered Corn on the Cob…wrapped in bacon. Want another barbecue variation, maybe on the sweet, Southern side? Here’s Pulled Pork with Bourbon-Peach Barbecue Sauce. And should you need some festive ambiance to go with all that good food, check out this board, 39 Clever Tailgating DIYs To Get You In The Spirit. Think pennant-shaped cupcake toppers, downloadable party invitations, and custom drink labels.

You’ll find another board that’s unabashedly devoted to the Broncos. Snag a recipe for a Denver Broncos cocktail made of blue Cucacao, vodka, and blood orange soda. Or some irresistible orange and blue, candy-studded Broncos cookies. Or how about a whole Broncos-inspired menu, from appetizers to dessert?

Hungry yet? If not, then check in often. Pins are always being added, so be sure to take a look before your next gathering.
