Fall Recipes Roundup

Fall is the perfect time to make warm, comforting foods, try new recipes for holiday guests, and make fun appetizers for tailgating! 


Fall is here! Well, it won't be here until December in Texas, but that's not going to stop me. In honor of the best season, I'm rounding up my favorite seasonal recipes. Summer is great for using fresh produce and cooking outside, but there's something about the cooling air and days getting dark faster that makes me want to return to the kitchen and get to making things. Soups, stews, side dishes for Thanksgiving, new tasty tailgating treats - you name it, fall is a great time to return to the kitchen and use your oven! Some of these fall recipes are 100% made from scratch, others use store bought items to make them extremely quick and simple. There's truly something for all cooking abilities and all occasions in this fall recipes roundup!

Great list of fall recipes to try, from soups and stews to tailgating parties to Halloween and Thanksgiving recipe ideas

Ocktoberfest and Tailgating:
If you're going to be spending the day drinking, you need to have access to some great food to soak up that alcohol! My German Lentil Stew can be thrown in a CrockPot or InstaPot so that you can head off to your local Ocktoberfest and have a hot meal when you come home. My pizza-wing appetizer uses the help of store bought items to make an easy, classic, no-fuss appetizer perfect for your tailgating party, and that pairs perfectly with a Bloody Mary or a local brew.



Seasonal Favorites:
Fall means the start of root vegetable season! Sure, there aren't vine ripened tomatoes or fresh berries but that doesn't mean you can't eat healthy. My Roasted Root Veggie Pasta is versatile and tasty, and if you slightly under cook the pasta it keeps and reheats extremely well in the fridge. Halloween is the start of "sweets season" and my Playful Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies do not disappoint! Not a baker? Me either, this recipe uses store bought help to make it easier on us. 


Fall Holiday Cooking and Baking:
Get ready to plan your meals for holidays and parties, because it's hosting season! Even if you don't host, it's helpful to offer to bring a dish. If that's refused, you'd better be bringing a hostess gift (my Tart Cherry and Pistachio Biscotti is perfect for that!) I have an amazing Thanksgiving appetizer that will satisfy your guests without leaving them too full in my Sweet Potato Crostini. Have a ton of leftover turkey, including the less popular dark meat? Make my Leftover Turkey Gumbo! It's a great way to use leftovers while also changing up the flavor palette after you're sick of sage and butter that's common in Thanksgiving meals. Making casserole side dishes? Swap out canned soup for my Crockpot Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (there's instructions on how to make it cream of celery, cream of whatever you need cream of in the post, too)




Get the fall cooking and baking season off to a great start with these fall recipes, all rounded up for you and in one spot! Whether you're hosting a party, going to a tailgate, enjoying adult beverages at Ocktoberfest, hosting a holiday dinner or simply need a delicious hostess gift, these recipes are all great and useful for the fun that fall brings.
