The autumn season is a time for gathering with your loved ones. So, whether getting ready for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or a fun-filled evening by the fire, you can easily incorporate the flavors of fall into the foods you make. These unique fall recipes use the latest smart kitchen technologies and appliances to make entertaining a breeze.

Butternut Squash in the Air Fryer

Nothing says fall like a side of roasted butternut squash. With its rich orange color, butternut squash is the perfect side dish to serve with a warm and cozy fall meal. Plus, roasting butternut squash is easier than ever when you use an air fryer.

This delicious recipe uses basic ingredients you likely have already, like cinnamon, olive oil, and salt, to quickly roast delicious butternut squash in your air fryer.

Pumpkin Soup in an Instant Pot

Pumpkin soup is a classic fall recipe that incorporates the hearty flavors of fall in a warm and comforting—not to mention nutritious—meal.

The instant pot is one of the most popular new appliances that simplify cooking. Lightweight and compact, this counter appliance can work as a pressure cooker and slow cooker, making it versatile for various recipes. For example, this easy pumpkin soup recipe is perfect for the instant pot, and it makes a delicious soup your guests will rave about for seasons to come.

Pumpkin Bagels with a Smart Toaster

Looking for something with autumn vibes to serve for breakfast or brunch? Pick up some pumpkin bagels at your local bagel shop or grocery store and serve them with cinnamon and cream cheese. This complementary pairing will leave you and your guests feeling immersed in fall. To toast the bagels perfectly, though, say goodbye to your outdated toaster. 

With a neat touchscreen, a smart toaster allows you to visually identify the toast level. Speedy smart toasters let you toast bagels for each of your guests, precisely to the toasting level they enjoy! A smart toaster can toast so much more than just bagels, though. Delicious pumpkin bread, cinnamon swirl bread, zucchini bread, and more are perfect autumn treats to serve the next time you entertain guests for breakfast or brunch. 

Pumpkin Spice Margarita in a Smart Blender

Every fall festivity needs a seasonal drink added to the mix! This simple pumpkin spice margarita recipe is one you can quickly whip up in a blender using classic tequila while incorporating autumn ingredients like pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spices. Newer blenders, such as the Vitamix Ascent blender, have amazing smart technology features and Wi-Fi connectivity that make them more fun, customized, and easier to use.

Clean It All Up with a Smart Vacuum

Is your floor a mess after prepping these delicious fall treats? Count on a smart vacuum to clean the floors while you put ingredients away or step out to enjoy a beautiful fall breeze on the patio. Smart vacuums are specially designed to run autonomously and even come with sensors; this means they won’t fall down the stairs or crash into your china cabinet while sweeping up dust, allergens, crumbs, and grime.

Much like these smart technologies can help optimize your cooking and entertaining, technology incorporated into the home can create the convenience of smart homes.
