October means it’s officially scary season! Whether you’re looking for a scary movie or a (slightly) terrifying episode of your favorite TV show, there’s certainly no lack of content in this department. 

What to cook:

It’s officially apple season!

Amanda Haas shared her go-to apple recipes so you can get really creative with your fall haul. 

What to read:
