Welcome, October. Or shall we say, Crocktober.

Goodbye, summer heat—and our fixation on salads, grilling and anything besides heating up the kitchen. October kicks off the season for tasty, hearty fare that warms up your belly, soul, and sometimes, happily, your kitchen too.

Now that the Denver Broncos are back in business, why not gather with your fellow Stepping Stone neighbors over a football game and, perhaps, a crockpot full of barbecue? In honor of our community, so well-known for its friendly get-togethers, Stepping Stone has created several Pinterest boards for you to explore—to get your tastebuds tingling with seasonally inspired recipes or your creativity awhirl with ideas for crafty autumn party décor. Here are some highlights.

Starting with crockpots, here’s a board devoted to the art of fix-it-and-forget-it from Stepping Stone’s master developer Shea Homes Colorado. If you are operating under the impression that slow cooking menus are limited to soups and beans, check out the recipes for a savory and light sweet potato gratin, Chinese-style barbecue, and lasagna described as “the easiest lasagna you will ever make.” Sold.

On Stepping Stone’s Fall-Football-Fun Food boardyou’ll find more slow cooker recipes, as well as many other kinds. If you’re hosting a gourmet crowd, try out the Pork Belly Confit with crispy skin, torched caramel crust and yellow mustard. More of a traditional crowd? Then how about some Whiskey Meatballs, or Pineapple Pulled Pork Sliders.

There’s another board from builder Shea Homes that’s unabashedly devoted to the Broncos. Snag a recipe for a Denver Broncos cocktail made of blue Cucacao, vodka, and blood orange soda. Or orange and blue, candy-studded Broncos cookiesOr how about a whole Broncos-inspired menufrom appetizers to dessert? Another of our builders, Richmond American Homes, also has mouth-watering football food on their Game Day Snacks board.

And lest we forget that other October attraction, Halloween, head over to Stepping Stone’s Amazing Autumn Ideas boardwhere you can pick up seasonal recipes, craft ideas, and Halloween goodies galore. Check out 15 fun Halloween decorating tips here or learn how to roast pumpkin seeds salvaged from your jack o’ lantern. Or stack up a pile of yummy Pumpkin French Toast.

Hungry yet? If not, check in often. Pins are always being added, so be sure to take a look before your next Stepping Stone gathering.
