Top Ten Fall Recipes I Love

Posted on: October 12, 2010

Top Ten {Tuesday}Despite a heat wave putting a slight damper on the awesome fall weather, I’m still cooking like it feels like fall. I’m a big fan of soups {easy to make during naptime} and of course all the sweets I can eat. Or could eat. Here are some of my all time favorite recipes.

1. Maple Dijon Chicken – This is one of my personal favorites because of the sweet potatoes. It’s a great crock pot meal that is tender and juicy.

2. Baked Potato SoupI’ve been making this recipe for years and it’s amazingly simple {again a crock pot meal}.

3. Spicy Chicken Soup – Jonathan loves this soup. Add in cheese and serve with some hot rolls.

4. Cider Baked Butternut Squash Soup – I just made this for the first time two weeks ago. If you can get past the orange color, the taste is divine {I kid you not}.

5. Cream of Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwich – A fall/winter staple for me. Easy, perfect for lunch and great with pepper jack cheese.

6. Beef Chili – Chili. Cold weather. Need I say more?

7. Easy Chicken and Dumplings – Nothing like Southern food made easy. Refrigerate biscuits as dumplings. Makes for good leftovers too!

8. Pasta Fagioli – This soup taste just like Olive Garden’s. Hmm… garlic bread sticks.

9. Apple Pie – Can’t make a fall food list without apple pie. I love apple pie. Which might explain my apple orchard obsession.

10. Pumpkin Bread – I use to think I didn’t like pumpkin. Oh, I was sorely mistaken. I LOVE pumpkin. Love. It. And pumpkin bread smothered in butter {or whipped cream} is mouth watering.

Mmmm soup goodness!! I can’t wait to try some of these out. I also LOVE pumpkin. I know you can cook your own but I’m not there yet. Unfortunately, we haven’t had any canned pumpkin in Seattle due to some kind of harvest shortage. But when we do watch out!

those look really good- if only andy liked soup! 🙂

Thanks for posting your Cider Baked Butternut Squash Soup recipe! I’ve been coveting it ever since you tweeted about making it. Do you think there could be a lazy adaptation where it all goes in the crockpot, or do you think all the involved work is worth the taste?

I don’t see why you couldn’t do the crock pot since you have to cooking the apples, rutabaga and onions for so long. You’d just need to make sure your squash is cooked before hand (maybe night before?).
