Irresistible and Delicious Fall Puppy Chow {Easy to Make}

This puppy chow recipe is truly fall in a bowl. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE the fall crisp weather, wearing hoodies, no mosquitoes, etc. There is just something about the colors and flavors of fall that just makes me happy. Then, of course, there are the comfort foods that I love like Chicken & Dumplings, Chili and Beef Stew.

In addition to comfort dinners, I also love the fall desserts! In fact, baking is something that I LOVE to do and wish I had more time to do.
