September has finally arrived and with that comes an array of seasonal foods and festivities. Perhaps one bizarre (but much welcome) food holiday in September is that it is National Honey Month!

That’s not all you can make with honey, however. Here are a few of our favorite sweet and savory recipes from around the web.
