Our Family’s Favorite Fall Recipes

I love summer cusine, but isn’t there somthing so cozy and nostalgic about the food we prepare and serve this time of year? The cinnamony smell of pumpkin baked goods. The sizzle of fresh greens on the stove. The satisfying taste of a perfectly flakey, buttery crust on a veggie filled pot pie.

I’m hungry just thinking about it.

Thanks to a suggestion from my dear friend, Diane, I’m sharing with you some of my family’s favorite recipes that I make each fall. I hope you’ll give a few of these a try and let me know what you think!

a simple and delicious pumpkin muffin

apple dumplings: the perfect way to use your fresh picked apples

a brie and apple pairing sure to wow guests at your next fall party

and speaking of parties! The perfect fall sangria for your next gathering, book club, or campfire!

a pizza recipe for all your roasted fall veggies

this pasta recipe is a great way to introduce butternut squash to your family

my favorite, most unique fall flavor combination includes kale, apples and curry powder

pumpkin for breakfast? try these pancakes 

my guys love a good baked potato soup recipe

this dish with chicken, apples, and fall veggies is great for a family gathering!

the perfect recipe that calls for brussel sprouts and your cast iron skillet

nothing says “cozy” more than a good shepherd’s pie!

I’m dying to try this yummy apple and cream cheese appetizer

parmesan chicken and Alfredo shells in one of my family’s favorite cool weather comfort foods

we can’t forget the magic that is candy corn. Try making this trail mix for a yummy snack!

  1. Wow!!!! Ask and yet shall receive. Awesome selection!!!! Can’t wait to dive into the recipes you provided. Thank you very much, I’m always looking to try new recipes. They all sound delicious.

  2. It would be fun to do a food tasting night with a recipe exchange. Everyone bring a tried and true go-to dish that everyone can sample and then you take a copy of the recipe of the ones you want to try. Except I just want you to make all of the above 🙃

  3. Fall is my favorite season for eating. 🙂 I can’t wait to start making chili, pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, pumpkin coffee cake, chicken stew, tomato soup and grilled cheese…yum. I love shepherd’s pie, but Paul doesn’t like his food to touch, so that’s out for us. LOL.

    1. I have a wonderful pumpkin coffee cake recipe that I wanted to include, but it was hand-typed and I didn’t want to share it without the proper attribution. Do you have a link to a recipe? And I agree, tomato soup and grilled cheese are one of my favorite things about this time of year ;-).

  4. I have some tried and true recipes, but I really love to experiment, so I’m always trying new things (my husband doesn’t love this as much as I do). Sometimes they’re duds, but it’s how I find the keepers 😉

    Fall is just the best season to cook, and bake. It’s cool enough that you can actually turn the oven on, and everything just tastes more comforting and warm in the fall, I swear. I will be making these recipes a lot this season.

    1. Hey girl, I’m SO excited you posted these recipes! I can’t wait to try them. Thank you! I’ve seen your photos recently. I’m so happy for you that you have your kitchen back up and running and looking so spectacular!

    1. I usually use the old stand-by from Betty Crocker. I too am always looking for “the one,” though. Betty’s is good and worth trying. It’s easy to make and works well if you make a traditional pizza or a cast iron skillet pizza. It’s just missing “something,” and I’m not sure what.
