Cancer

Get excited, because fall is going to be filled with social opportunities coming your way. You’re great at sweetening up these situations all on your own, but remember to embrace your spicier side while schmoozing at parties, dinners, and maybe even a wedding or two. It’ll make for much more interesting results—just like using Spiced Vanilla Bean Sugar in place of regular sugar does. Warm spices like cinnamon and allspice make this option perfect for autumn, especially when added to cupcakes, pancakes, and French toast...or take things in an unexpectedly savory direction and show up to one of those parties with Cinnamon Apple Baked Beans.

Consider skipping out on some of those tempting late nights out and opt for quiet time at home when you can get it. If you master that, everyone else will be trying to figure out how to keep up with you. The key: Supreme Saigon Cinnamon. This ultra-flavorful variety of a classic fall spice is all you need to conquer any challenges coming your way. It’s sweet, strong, and stands out, just like you.

Scorpio

You’re coming off a summertime high of exciting new experiences that were great in the moment but could leave you feeling less-than-satisfied as life slows down a bit in autumn. You may be tempted to let your frustration and hot temper show, but try to remember that taking some time to pamper yourself can feel just as good as that summertime fun. Instead of being salty to others, eat something spicy and salty instead. You can get all the heat you need with a sprinkle of Ghost Pepper Salt anytime. This seasoning is balanced by a chocolate note, which tames its bite a bit (Scorpio, take note) making it perfect in Ghost Pepper Salted Double Chocolate Cookies.

Sagittarius

You’re feeling the pull to take some risks and you should go all in on that instinct. That extra dose of confidence you’re feeling may end up attracting some new friends and social connections. Don’t settle for the same old same old this season; be ready to change things up. While you’re at it, skip the usual Crushed Red Pepper and opt for Crushed Aleppo Chiles instead. They can be used in all the same ways as Crushed Red Pepper—think pizza, pasta, salads, and potatoes—but they bring fruity, earthy notes to the flavor party. One sure way to impress those new acquaintances? Make this Curried Cauliflower with Crispy Chile Tofu.

Mulled Wine

Capricorn

Be patient with others this fall, as some may interpret your serious nature as you being too strict. Don’t let this dissuade your diligent efforts to be the best at your commitments though. Instead, take it as a personal challenge and make an effort to change others’ opinions of you through positive action. You may need some time to mull things over before finding the right path, and that’s exactly why fragrant, soothing Mulling Spices are ideal for you this season. Practice that patience by making a double batch of Mulled Wine or Mulled Apple Cider. Enjoy a little as you unwind and get a clear head, then share the rest to start mending relationships—one sip at a time.

Aquarius

Your skills as a visionary have been on a real roll lately as you’ve been learning new things and finding innovative ways to turn ordinary into extraordinary. You can keep that energy going into fall, but you need to remember that getting back to the basics is often the best way to continue pushing forward. That’s why Salt & Pepper Tableside Seasoning is your go-to for autumn cooking. It’s a quick, easy way to build a solid base for any dish or to give finished meals the extra “oomph” they need. It’s also super flexible in the kitchen, saving you time and energy to dream. Use it to whip up some Pepper Roasted Chicken Wings, the ideal snack for those times when you need a simple, yet satisfying, meal to keep your creativity at its peak.

You have a tendency to get lost in your imagination, so take some time this season to come back to reality, just long enough to get your growing to-do list under control. Once you’ve cleared away the clutter, who knows where your fantasies will lead you! In the meantime, keep things exciting with a dash of heat in the kitchen using Piri-Piri Seasoning. It’s spicy, yet complex, which is sure to keep autumn interesting (even as you tackle some less-than-exciting responsibilities). Plus, you can use it to make these Kimchi Style Cucumbers, which come together in just 15 minutes but will last for several weeks in the fridge—giving you easy access to a crunchy, spicy bite anytime.
