Every season when fall hits, the basic in me hulks out and takes over. Yes, I’m that person walking around with a pumpkin spice latte oohing and aahing over the “changing of the leaves,” and getting all giddy about “sweater season.” Hell, this year I’m actually planning on going apple picking. Yes, apple picking, in an actual orchard. This excitement is real.

Anyways, with Halloween literally around the corner, I say everyone should embrace the basic within. Just indulge in the most cliché fall activities possible, one of which is getting overly homey and baking till your home smells like a Tollhouse factory. So, to save you some time, I’ve compiled a list of easy to make fall treats that would make the Martha Stewart in all of us proud.
