With the arrival of autumn’s crisp, cool temperatures comes an air of excitement and anticipation for fall activities and the coming holiday months. We’ve traded in the tart and citrusy tastes of summer for the warmth and comfort of more savory spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove.

As the days begin to get shorter, nothing is more appealing at this time of year than cozying up inside with family and friends to share a warm meal. And as Oct. 31 gets closer, planning out the perfect Halloween get-together is high on the agendas of many.

Use these four autumn-inspired recipes to capture the celebratory essence of fall and bring everyone together around the dinner or snack table.

Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Lattes

These days, fall is 100 percent synonymous with the now infamous PSL. This beloved beverage will be a raving hit at any group gathering (especially where the female head-count is high), like a book club meeting, baby shower, or girl’s night in.
