You know the feeling, as soon as the temperature starts to change so do our eating desires. I wonder if it is inherit in us? Maybe something to make us want only what is available? Some sort of cave man like insight? Either way, I know that for me when the sun starts to set earlier, the clouds start to roll in and the air turns crisp, all I want to do is snuggle up with a warm blanket and eat some of my favorite comfort foods. <–This might also be why I tend to put on a few pounds over the season. Well, that or the fudge and cookies. One can never tell. 🙂
Since many of us here in Michigan are just starting to kick on the furnaces, I thought that this would be the perfect time to share my favorite fall foods with all of you. These recipes are my tried and true favorites, the ones that keep me coming back year after year. I hope you enjoy them too and if you have a favorite fall recipe to share, you can link to it in the comments. Really, linking off to other recipes is welcomed and encouraged! One can never have too many fall favorites.
This is one of my favorites, that’s why I listed it first. This super easy crock pot meal is a dump and run. Just dump in all of the ingredients and heat. Go here for the recipe and instructions.
Fall is all about the hot apple cider in my house. With more than a couple apple orchards within driving distance from us, we are constantly tempted to stop and pick up more fresh cider, apples and even donuts. You would think that hot apple cider is just warmed up cider, but it’s not. It is actually made by combining a few ingredients together and heating.

Speaking of apples, here is another great apple recipe. This one makes for a super great fall dessert and uses fresh apples! Check it out here.
I simply love a good casserole in the fall. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s usually carb filled. 🙂 This recipe is all of that and more. Give it a try, you’ll be happy you did! You can find the recipe and instructions for Easy Beef Stroganoff here. #sponsored
Here is another tasty casserole idea. This baked spaghetti is packed with flavor (and cheese). Check it out here. I think you’ll be glad you did.
After all of these carb loaded meals, I thought that I should throw in a yummy comfort food that has been redone to make it more health conscious. #sponsored Here you will find the recipe for a healthier version of my favorite holiday spinach dip. I could eat a whole bowl of this stuff, which I guess it’s a good thing it’s made with yogurt.
In the fall even Friday night pizza night can be transformed! Check out this recipe for Brussel Sprout pizza that I know your family will love. It’s got brussel sprouts, bacon, cheese, mushrooms and tons of other super tasty ingredients. Seriously, don’t count this one out before your try it! We’ve come to like it even better than delivery!
Finally, part of the seasonal fun is making caramel apples. This super easy make at home recipe will get you started, then you can add in your own favorite toppings. Check it out here #sponsored.
Geez, who am I kidding. Here is a bonus recipe because, hey, I like bonuses. This one is quirky, but I think you might just love it. We sure did.
