1: White Bean and Sausage Salad
Although salads are traditionally considered a staple of spring or summer, once you add a starch and protein, it can hit the spot on an autumn day. Making great use of convenient ingredients, such as canned beans, and versatile enough that you can use whatever sausage you have on-hand, this tasty salad can be put together quickly and easily.
5: Scones with Currants
Scones are a British-baked good that is typically served with cream tea. They are similar to biscuits; but instead of butter, heavy cream is used to give scones the crumbly texture for which they are known. Adding currants or raisins brings a lovely fall flavor without resorting to pumpkin spice.
Don't waste any time wishing you were a better taster. Put your effort into becoming a better taster through focused attention and curiosity every time you prepare, season, and eat food. This skill set is really foundational.
