In our house, a lot or socializing happens in the fall. There are school functions, parent meetings, sports team events, and what have you. We’re the kind of eager cooks who will happily bring some kind of homemade snack to just about anything but we’re also total DIY nerds who love to keep the things we made seasonal so they really make everyone feel at home no matter what time of year it is. That’s why we’ve had our eyes peeled for fall finger foods lately!
