Fall Book Club Menu

Hosting book club this month? We’ve got you covered with our Fall Book Club Menu! 

Fall Book Club MenuWe’re back, as promised, with our fall book club menu. Do you guys remember how this all started? Our friend, Rachel, who used to be in our book club (but has since moved away) was persistent with her requests to “Just tell me what to make when I host book club this month!”. Literally. If you need a refresher, check out our first post in the series here. So we thought why not share some of our favorite book club noshes with our readers, too? 

We know fall can be a crazy time of year with the holidays quickly approaching, but don’t neglect that girl time. A few hours of good food, friends and wine does wonders for the soul. And with that in mind, here are some tasty bites for your fall-themed gatherings – literary or not! 

Crostini with Savory Tomato, Bacon & Apple JamCrostini with Savory Tomato, Bacon and Apple Jam: Make the jam a few days ahead of time, so assembly is quick and easy the night of your party. The jam is also killer on grilled pork, too. Just sayin’.

Creamy Porcini SoupCreamy Porcini Soup: Chilly fall evenings call for belly-warming soup. This rich mushroom soup is seasoned with thyme and garlic. Don’t forget extra crostini. 

Give pizza night a fall twist with this Roasted Butternut Squash Naan Pizza!Roasted Butternut Squash Naan Pizza: Who can say no to “pizza”? It’s also a great way to use up any leftover squash you have in your fridge. 

Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Citrus VinaigretteShaved Brussels Sprouts Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette: My new favorite way to eat brussels sprouts, complete with craisins, pistachios and avocado. Gotta get those greens in before you hit the dessert platter, right? Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars with Biscoff Cookie Crust on a dark sheet pan. An apple, forks and a bowl of caramel sauce sit beside the bars.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars with Biscoff Cookie Crust: There is enough goodness in the title that little needs to be said about this dish. Except make it. Now. 

The nights are growing longer, and all I want to do is snuggle under a blanket with a good read and a glass of wine. What are you reading this month? We’re always looking for great suggestions. Send ‘em our way!

    Thanks for the book club bites. I belong to 3 book clubs and we need some fresh ideas. One is at 9:30 am so is a bit more challenging this early in the morning. All of your suggestions look delicious and easy to prepare. Thanks. Love Garnish With Lemon!

      Maybe we can do a food for crafts trade, Jeannie? I’m sorely lacking skills in that department. 😉

    I want to join a book club too, but can’t seem to fit one in. So many are during the day. But I could be a one person book club, because I do read a lot. So I guess that qualifies me to make one more of these intriguing and delicious recipes for ‘my book club’.

    Even though it will be a new season by the time I host our book club, this is a terrific resource…and I’ll still make those apple bars. SO yummy!

    Can any of these be made gluten free?
    What do I fix if it’s hot in the fall like we are having right now. Any ideas?
