There are few things as comforting as your favorite food. Whether it’s something mom or grandma used to make (or dad/grandad) or it’s something you made once with your best friend at a sleepover, food has the distinct ability to make us recall even the deepest of buried memories and bring us closer together.
Food during fall is even more magical. Here are my favorite recipes for fall.
I mentioned in this post why I love this recipe so much, but suffice it to say, this soup just screams fall/Halloween to me. It makes me so happy and cozy inside.
Kristin and I discovered this last year and kind of made it on a whim, but we both agreed we’re so happy we did. It’s got a lot of incredible flavors and the addition of the pumpkin made it so creamy and hearty. When I made this again for the first time this year a few days ago, it just made me so incredibly happy.
I tried this recipe on a whim when I was looking for easy fall recipes when we got our fall weather tease a week or two ago, and I really could not have been happier. It’s so creamy and warm and hearty and flavorful. I added some frozen mixed veggies to it and used a whole can of biscuits instead of half and enjoyed it, but Shane requested that next time I make it, I add more veggies and fewer dumplings, so next time I’ll add only half a can (like the recipe calls for) and a half a cup of mixed veggies (I used a quarter cup last time).
This is also in that post mentioned about, but I have to say, even though I made it in the middle of summer, it felt like a delicious, hearty fall chili to me and I can’t wait to have it again when it’s also chilly outside. 😉
This is kind of an easy, “cheater” version of tortilla soup, but it’s just as flavorful and delicious, if not slightly less healthy. I love to add cheese and sour cream and scoop up the filling on a tortilla chip and eat it, drippy and all. My mom used to make this doubled for the family, so when I asked her for the recipe, she told me I could halve it since it makes so much.
That’s it, friends. Those are my favorite fall recipes, and I’m so excited to be adding them back into the rotation. Let me know if you try any of these, and what your favorite fall recipes are!
