That special time of year is upon us. The sun is still warm, but the first day of autumn is around the corner. It’s a season for apple picking in the local orchard, lazy naps in the park under a shade tree, and snacking on berries throughout a simple afternoon. The hazy, crazy days of summer are sliding into a bustling, beautiful fall, with football Friday nights, weekend thrills, and weather that nips and chills as the days grow shorter. It’s the perfect time of “in-between,” and that calls for something unique.

Perfect treats are made precisely for such in-between moments. Whether it be a cocktail hour, an after-school snack, or something to munch on when you don’t know what else to do, in-between eats and treats are the answer. They may be healthier than a dessert (or not), they may be heartier than a quick breakfast (or not), but they are almost always easier than an entrée.

Veggie Chips

Put down the chips, but hold on to the potatoes. And snag a few colorful veggies, because there’s no turning back once you’ve tried this tasty treat that’s easy, healthy, and oh-so-delicious.

Blackberry Mint-Osa Cocktail

Some drinks are fancy. Some drinks are schmancy. And this drink will knock your fancy-schmancy socks off. It’s beautiful, bubbly, and as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Golden Apple Fritters

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. And an apple fritter a day keeps the hunger at bay. Consider it a breakfast pastry, a post-meal dessert, or the perfect late-night snack.
