Fiesta’s Fall Must Haves

Fiesta’s Fall Must Haves

It’s hard to believe that fall is just around the corner. It seems like summer just started and now we’re already pinning tasty pumpkin recipes on Pinterest, shopping for comfy new sweaters, and seeing Halloween decorations in all the stores. Although we’re lamenting summer coming to an end again, we are excited to enter autumn in style. Today we’re bringing you our top 10 Fiesta Fall Must Haves so you and your kitchen can be prepared for a very fashionable fall!

1. Anything Claret

1

Our newest color is a beautiful burgundy hue that is the perfect addition to your collection, especially for fall! Picture Claret, Slate, Sage, and Ivory adorning your dinner table on Thanksgiving, or any autumn day! We can’t wait to see how you set your tables with this beautiful shade.

2. Tapered Mug

2

Cooler weather calls for coffee and cocoa, and what better way to enjoy them than in our 15oz. Tapered Mug? The Tapered mug is ideal for hot beverages on chilly mornings, as it holds more than our Java and Ring Handled mugs and fits so snuggly in the hand.

3. Skillet Baker

3

The dropping temperatures mean that we can get back to one of our favorite pastimes: baking! We’re tying our apron strings and turning our ovens back on after a summer of ice cream and popsicles to keep cool (don’t get us wrong, we love our cold summer treats, too!). One of our favorite items for making baked goods is our new Skillet Baker! You can find a recipe for Gourmet Skillet S’mores here: bit.ly/2aMEytS

4. Halloween items

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays here at Fiesta Dinnerware, as you might have noticed if you’ve seen all of our Halloween ware! We have everything you need to celebrate Halloween right this year: scary cats, hooting owls, flying witches, spooky pumpkins and newest of all, our trio of skeletons and ghosts patterns! Scare easily? Don’t worry. These characters are more cute than creepy!

5. Covered Casserole

5

The Covered Casserole was one of our favorite new items in 2015, and it still has our hearts this year! Think delicious soups, hearty casseroles, and even fresh baked bread kept warm by one of our most stylish pieces.

6. Tortilla Warmer

6

Yes, the much anticipated Tortilla Warmer has made our list of fall must haves. Why? Much like the Covered Casserole, it is able to keep meals hot with its ceramic lid. And you don’t need to be limited to warming tortillas! We love using the Tortilla Warmer for small casseroles, dips, and any sides you need to keep warm. The Tortilla Warmer will be coming soon!

7. Appetizer Plate

7

Fall represents different things to all of us. For some it means the start of school, for others it marks the beginning of holiday shopping (yikes!), and still other see the leaves changing and think one thing: football season. Whether you’re a fan or not, we think everyone can get on board with a good tailgate party! We love all the classic foods that go along with cheering on your team, and we have the perfect plate for your viewing party munchies: our Appetizer Plate! Go for the extra point and get a set in your team’s colors.

8. Signature Bowl

8

Another of our newest items might just be made for fall dining: the Signature Bowl. Just think of coming home after a blustery stroll outside to a beautiful bowl of hot soup or stew waiting for you. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it!

9. Pie Baker

Did we mention we love baking already? Well, we’ll say it again. We LOVE baking! Is there anything better than fresh baked goods straight from the oven on a crisp fall day? We don’t think so. Another of our favorite bakeware pieces is our Large and Small Pie Bakers, perfect for pumpkin, apple, pecan, and every pie in between! Check out our recipe for mini pumpkin pies here: bit.ly/2bS7tk3

10. Square Ware

10

Autumn is the season of change; the leaves are changing colors, and you’re changing out your dinnerware! If you’re used to the usual round plates, bowls, and mugs, consider switching it up this season with our square Fiesta line. It’s chic, modern, and lots of fun to combine with the classic round pieces to bring a different look to your table.

There you have it; our top ten must have Fiesta items for fall. Do you agree with our list, or are there other pieces you think should have made the cut? Let us know in the comments!

Gourmet S’mores Skillet for National S’mores Day

Fiesta Dinnerware Gourmet S'mores Skillet recipe

When we noticed there was an entire day dedicated to s’mores, it didn’t take us long to grab our new Individual Skillet and try some sticky marshmallowy recipes.

We created a Gourmet S’mores Skillet that grownups and kids alike will devour. Warning: you might want to double or triple this recipe.

This spin on a campfire classic can be made right at home in the oven, which means it can be made any time of the year. And that’s just fine with us!

 

Fiesta Dinnerware Gourmet S'mores Skillet recipe

It starts with a layer of a buttery pretzel crust. We subbed pretzels for graham crackers because, let’s face it, sometimes after eating s’mores we’re left craving a bag of chips. And then you need something sweet again. It’s an endless cycle of salty/sweet. We figured, let’s just put the salt in the sweet and save all the trouble and extra calories.

Next is a layer of creamy dark chocolate fudgy goodness. We traded the milk chocolate that’s traditionally used in s’mores for decadent dark chocolate because here at Fiesta Dinnerware, we’re colorful and different. Our recipes are a little different too! The saltiness of the pretzels combined with the richness of the dark chocolate is completely divine.

The final layer is simply marshmallows. That’s what ultimately makes a s’more a s’more, right? We chose mini marshmallows, but you could use larger marshmallows if you’d like. The marshmallows toasted to a perfect golden brown under the broiler in our Individual Skillet, featured in the new Foundry cast iron-like finish.

Print
For the pretzel crust
  1. 1 cup finely crushed pretzels (about 3 handfuls)
  2. 4 tablespoons sugar
  3. 12 tablespoons melted butter
For the chocolate filling
  1. 12 ounces dark chocolate chips
  2. 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
For the marshmallow layer
  1. 1 (10.5 ounce) bag marshmallows
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease two Fiesta Individual Skillet Bakers or 1 8x8" baking pan with butter.
  2. Make the pretzel crust. In a medium bowl, stir together the pretzel crumbs, sugar and melted butter until all of the crumbs are evenly moistened. Pour half into the prepared Fiesta Individual Skillets or the full amount into an 8x8" pan and press evenly into a tight, compact layer. Bake until it is lightly browned and has a faint toasted smell, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  3. Make the chocolate filling. Place the chocolate and sweetened condensed milk in a heatproof bowl and set it over a small pan of barely simmering water. Stir occasionally until it is completely melted and smooth. Immediately pour it over the pretzel crust and spread it into an even layer.
  4. Immediately place the marshmallows on top of the chocolate filling, pressing down slightly. When ready to serve, turn on your oven's broiler and place the pan on the center rack. Broil until the marshmallows are puffed and browned, 1-2 minutes. Removed from the oven and let cool briefly.
