A slow cooker Autumn Pork Roast is one of the heartiest dishes to serve in the fall, and goes well with freshly roasted carrots and baked potatoes. The full-bodied flavor carried out by this recipe will have your guests coming back for seconds – maybe you should make two! Here’s the recipe.

Pumpkins are plentiful during the fall and can serve many purposes, especially throughout October. Our Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin Cinnamon Chip & Pecan Granola Bars use canned pumpkin, but their bold flavor is as vibrant as the real pumpkins from your garden or front porch. See both recipes here.

Irish Soda Bread

What you’ll need:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and softened butter. Stir in 1 cup of buttermilk and the egg.
  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead slightly and form into a rounded shape. Place on baking sheet.
  4. In a small bowl, mix melted butter and the remaining buttermilk and brush loaf with up to half of the mixture. Use a knife and make two shallow line cuts in the top of the loaf.
  5. Bake for about 50 minutes, removing loaf at about 25 minutes to quickly brush with remaining butter and buttermilk mixture. Use the toothpick test to test for doneness; serve.
