Cinnamon and Nutmeg

During the fall it seems as though cinnamon and/or nutmeg is added to every recipe to brighten up the taste. In fact, did you know that cinnamon is great for jumpstarting your metabolism? During the fall, sprinkle cinnamon or nutmeg in your hot apple cider, on your oatmeal, throughout your apple and pumpkin recipes, and in whatever recipe you desire for a great autumn taste.


From caramel apples to caramel espresso drinks, you can find caramel everywhere during the autumn season. Caramel can be added as a main ingredient or as an added treat. Caramel is commonly used to take apple pie and crisp to the next level!
