Tasty Kitchen has some tasty recipes this week. Quick and Easy Cinnamon Bread, that looks great. Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Scones that the author writes are her "best scones ever." Crumb Dutch Apple Pie that uses the crumb mixture as a topping and the crust, in place of a traditional crust. These Easy Pumpkin Muffins look good for fall and they are very easy. 
If dry aging your own Filet Mignon sounds interesting to you, Judy at Judy's Kitchen has been successfully aging hers for over a year. She has great instructions and pictures that look easy to follow, and it looks easier than I had expected. If you are interested, you can check it out here.

Farmgirl Fare has a recipe for homemade Italian sausage with fresh basil, oregano, garlic and fennel seeds. It starts with a pound of fresh ground pork sausage and there is no stuffing into casing involved! She used her fresh sausage on a great looking pizza. You can see all of the above here.

This sausage, kale and lentil soup with skillet Parmesan rolls sound very inviting as a hearty fall meal. You can find both of them at A Feast for the Eyes.

Another soup for fall. Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness has a recipe for Pasta e Fagoli and a recipe for Tuscan seasoning mix that you use in this soup but would be good in many other dishes also. You can find both of those recipes here.

How does a 24-hour pot roast sound? You cook it at the lowest temperature that your oven has and all of the juices stay inside which keeps the meat very moist. You can start it and forget about it until the next day. You will find the recipe here. From Tried and True Cooking with Heidi.

These Coffee Cake Muffins from Baking Bites look very good, especially if you like lots of crumbs! You can use this recipe for muffins or individual coffee cakes if you have an individual coffee cake pan. These pans are have a removable bottom and the little cakes make a great presentation.
