One of my favorite things during cold fall evenings and weekends is locking myself in the kitchen and cooking up warm, hearty meals. I love rich pasta dishes and quick, easy oven bakes. I’ve been scouring Pinterest for recipes and inspiration and a handful that I found are worth sharing. I’ve included them and their links below.
ONE// Vegan Mac & Cheese
I’m not vegan, by any means, but this mac & cheese looks amazing. I love warm, filling comfort food during chilly fall nights and this recipe is all that, and easy to cook as well. I appreciate that it’s a healthier alternative to most mac & cheese recipes out there; it definitely makes you feel less guilty when spooning up a second bowl.
I’ll admit it, I’m a pumpkin fan. I think it’s a great flavor- hardy and savory, perfect for fall. Add that to creamy risotto with goat cheese and I’m sold. The salty and rich flavors blend so well, creating a gorgeous meal for any occasion.
THREE// Sheet Pan Chicken and Potatoes
One pan recipes are a must during the fall when school is in full swing. I think this chicken recipe looks incredible, both warm and filling. I grew up eating a lot of chicken, so I feel like it’s always my go-to when I’m looking for something everyone will like.
As a kid, I wasn’t forced to eat brussel sprouts, and I think that may play a part in why I like them so much now. I think this salad looks wonderfully tasty and would be great as a side or a light main dish. It also seems like it would be great to make a large dish and have it for leftovers the next day, which makes everyone’s life easier.
FIVE// Brioche Bread Pudding
I had to close out this post with something sweet. Bread pudding is one of my favorite fall desserts because it’s warm and rich. This recipe looks amazing and not overly difficult. I’m also a huge fan of caramel sauce, which looks like the perfect add on to this dessert. I will definitely be making this as soon as I’ve got access to an oven.
I would love for you to let me know if you try any of these recipes- I certainly will be. And if you have any go-to fall meals you cook, throw them in the comments below!
