If you're looking for a reason to get on that cooking apron and get to work, then you're going to want to keep reading. Fall is in the air and that means that lots of cooking and baking is (hopefully) going to increase.
We love cooking because new recipes and ingredients pop up all the time! They allow us to try new things, eat delicious food, and get creative. That's why we decided to round up five (out of a trillion) fall recipes that we think you should try!
*It is noted next to the name of the recipe where we acquired the recipe from - as well as the link to the recipe right below the picture!
Farro and Tomato Salad with Crispy Capers (Country Living)
If you’re looking for something healthy, color and delicious then look no further. This Salad combines the earthy taste of farro with the sweetness of tomatoes rounding it out with the saltiness of capers. Country Living nailed this suggestion by proving that sometimes the simplest things are truly the best.
Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta (Food & Wine)
Listen, we know that Brussels Sprouts aren’t at the top of everyone’s favorite foods list, but thanks to Scott Conant, we think that might change. Let’s be realistic, adding pancetta or bacon and onions to almost anything automatically ups it taste game by like a million. This delicious appetizer, salad or just because dish proves just that. The ingredients of this delicious dish may be few, but boy do they pack a big punch.
Butternut Squash Pasta Carbonara (Cooking Classy)
Although it is (currently) still pretty warm in a handful of places, think of this recipe as summoning the brisk chill of the fall season. We chose this Cooking Classy recipe because who wouldn't want a warm, creamy and tasty bowl of "pasta carbonara" on a chilly October evening? This recipe takes the ever popular trend of "Spaghetti Squash" and pairs it with a classically loved dish. The combination is beyond delicious, and if you ignore all the cheese and pancetta in the dish, you can convince you're self it's healthier since you're not technically eating pasta!
Slow Cooker Turkey Quinoa Chili with Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans (Well Plated)
The healthier but equally hearty fall chili recipe that you never knew you needed. Nothing warms the soul like a bowl of chili, and this recipe (thanks to Well Plated) is going to be a staple meal for us all season! Not only does this recipe have fan favorite fall ingredients like: turkey, quinoa, sweet potatoes and black beans, but it's perfect for those busy mom's because the slow cooker does most of the work! Make a giant batch to freeze for days to come, or bring to a pot luck and prepare to be the talk of the town. Either way, this slow cooker turkey quinoa chili is the definition of comfort and we're already drooling.
Soft Caramel Snickerdoodles (Sally’s Baking Addiction & Jamielyn Nye)
We were 99% positive that Snickerdoodles could not get any better, and then Jamielyn Nye - from her I Heart Nap Time Cookbook - went and proved us completely wrong. How, you ask? By adding delicious and irresistible caramel into the recipe! If you like cinnamon, sugar, caramel and just delicious cookies in general, then this is going to be for you. Curl up with a nice book by the fireplace and try, just try, to not eat 10 of these in one sitting.... we dare you.
