My Favorite Fall Recipes

 As many of you know, fall is hands down one of my favorite times of the year. I love how the thickness of summer starts to fade away and that the mornings are greeted with a crisp lightness to the air. I not only love the weather, fashion, and holidays that accompany this time of year, but I just adore the food that is typically associated with the cooler months of the year. I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite fall recipes, and most of them are super easy and do not require much time to put together!

Classic Minestrone Soup

This is hands down the best Minestrone soup recipe I have ever tried, and the best Minestrone soup I have ever had, period. Perfect for a fall winter night!


Chicken Noodle Soup

There used to be a restaurant in Nashville called the “Bread & Company”, and they had the best chicken noodle soup. It was always so comforting on a rainy day; you could ask to have it in a bread bowl, and the soup always had linguine noodles with plenty of chicken and vegetables – it was food for the soul. Last year I tried to recreate the recipe and it turned out to be a hit with friends and family!


Easy Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

I always love a recipe that you can pretty much dump in a crock pot, set the timer, and forget about it till it’s time to eat. This slow cooker chicken chili is delicious, packed full of flavor, super easy to make, and serves about four or five people {and to feed more all you have to do is double the recipe}. Love this recipe for days when I have a lot to do or am feeling a little lazy…


Slow Cooker Turkey Chili

This one is slightly more time involved than the chicken chili because of the prep work, but this is another chili recipe that you can put in a crockpot, set and forget about. Personally, I am not a big beef person, and this turkey chili is so amazing and such a great alternative to a traditional beef chili. Side note: I personally love to put some macaroni noodles on the bottom of my bowl then top the noodles with chili and my favorite chili toppings!


Stuffed Belle Peppers

The pioneer woman has the best tex-mex recipes, and this one is another of hers that really hits it out of the park. You can make these are ahead or make them in the moment. I love the fact that there isn’t a ton of meat in this recipes and the veggie and rice mix is the ultimate comfort food for the cold night. If you are like me and aren’t a big beef person, I usually sub ground turkey or chicken for the beef.


Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

I think at this point it is safe to say that I am a fan of Tex-mex food, if you aren’t I promise there are different recipes coming up, so keep reading… This is one of the easiest recipes to make, and it is always so delicious! Perfect for a night when you don’t want to spend a lot of time on dinner


Barefoot Contessa Fried Chicken Sandwiches

Fair warning, these sandwiches are time involved, but the end result is so worth the effort that goes into making these sandwiches. This Barefoot Contessa recipe was inspired by her favorite chicken sandwich from the Shake Shack, and no offense to the Shake Shack, but Ina’s Chicken sandwiches are next level! You will love how this recipe turns out.


Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie is one of my most favorite fall and winter dishes. Anytime a restaurant has chicken pot pie as an option on their menu. I really wanted to be able to make this dish at home, but could never really find a recipe that I 100% loved, so I started playing around with coming up with my own recipe based off of some chicken pot pie recipes I had already tried, and not to toot my own horn, but this recipe is pretty fantastic, and easy to make!


Cider-Roasted Pork Tenderloin

At first, I was a little skeptical of cider-roasted tenderloin, but Ina always knows best, and this recipe is amazing and the flavors in this dish just taste like fall.


Chicken Parmesan Pasta Skillet

This is one of the easiest things to make and it is beyond delicious. Pasta, in my opinion, is one of the ultimate comfort foods. This recipe only requires one pan and it is just so delicious!
