I’m sitting here with my window open next to my desk, and brisk 60 degree air is blowing in.
THIS IS WHAT I LIVE FOR GUYS.
Anyway, I’m finally in the mood for fall and I wanted to share my favorite comfort foods to cook in these chilly months. You may notice that I have a favorite person whose recipes I use often in the mix. . .
pioneer woman frito chili pie – this is what is pictured above. It’s hearty, flavorful, and perfect topped with freshly grated medium cheddar and diced red onions!
meat lasagna – I’m horrified at the photography from this post, so much so that I’m determined to redo this recipe this fall. This is EASY to make and very much a crowd pleaser!
pioneer woman potato soup – One of my absolute favorites for the fall.
pioneer woman chicken & dumpings – So delicious, especially perfect for family coming to town. While it does reheat well, the dumplings are better on day 1 of the soup!
oven “fried” breaded pork chops – Justin is a huge fan of these and I like them too! It’s a nice change up from the usual chicken focused weeknight meal.
baked chicken thighs with creamy garlic spinach sauce – Chicken thighs save me from complete dinner boredom. They are usually moist and delicious, and can handle a whole slew of flavors.
and because I can’t leave out sides. . .
Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Corn Dip – Simply, I don’t make this enough. It’s so good! Great for football on Sundays or in addition to a weeknight meal.
Baked Green Bean Fries – I’ve made these a few times! They lack a little bit of flavor so I usually double the cayenne pepper!
In general, if I’m looking for something new to cook, I’ll check out Damn Delicious, Skinny Taste, Smitten Kitchen, or Pioneer Woman. If I’m looking for something to bake, my go-to is Sally’s Baking Addiction!
Do you have a favorite website to look for new dinner ideas? I finally experienced a breakthrough that made weeknight cooking easier, but I’m always looking for new recipes to add to the mix!
