Listening to music while I cook is an absolute joy for me. I mean, if I’m spending 30 minutes or an hour working on a meal, I might as well dance in the kitchen while I do it. And what better way to officially kick off the season than with a cooking playlist for fall 2020? Especially if you’re making pumpkin oatmeal or an apple-pear crisp.
Since I’m always listening to music in the kitchen, I figured I’d share some of my favorite tunes with you. Then we can both listen to the same playlist while we cook this season. And you can comment on this post and tell me which songs you loved and which songs you weren’t totally into.
This season I’m looking for chill vibes. The world is going through craziness right now, so all I want is a glass of red wine and a few tunes to soothe my soul. Soft tunes, folk music, Taylor Swift’s “cardigan”.
Now in the Hickman household, we are Apple Music lovers. So I’m going to share my Apple Music playlist with you here. And we may not pay for Spotify, but I did attempt to make a playlist for you through a free account. Links to Apple Music & Spotify playlists are below.
And if you don’t use either of those streaming services—fair enough. Here’s a list of the songs so you can make it wherever your music lives on the Internet.
So happy cooking—red wine is required.
