A Collection Of 7 Thanksgiving And Fall Recipes You’ll Love
Here’s comfort food at its finest! When the air turns crisp and the leaves start to fall, you’ll love these comforting easy fall recipes that showcase all of the best flavors of the season.
So I don’t usually enjoy cooking, but my whole attitude about spending time in the kitchen changes the moment that fall rolls around and there’s just a little bit of a chill in the air! I have a whole collection of fall recipes that I love to prepare for my family when I’m ready to go into cozy mode. I go right into nesting mode and am ready to fill our table and our tummies with our favorite fall foods.
Every fall season, I look forward to the taste of pumpkin everything, sweet potatoes, apples and comforting dinner dishes. I’ve gathered up a collection of my favorite easy recipes to prepare for fall right here in one convenient spot for you! Just click on the name of the recipe above the photo to be taken directly to it.
THE WORLD’S BEST SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
This one – this recipe right here has to go at the top of the list! If I ever enter a contest for sweet potato casseroles, this one would bring home the blue ribbon. 🙂 I am my family’s best friend anytime I prepare this yummy, tasty, wonderful casserole dish. If I ever want to draw them over for a visit, all I have to do is tell them I’m making my sweet potato casserole!
To make it gluten-free, be sure to use Bruce’s brand canned sweet potatoes and gluten-free flour in the topping. Then you’re good to go!
SIMPLY SUPERB PUMPKIN BREAD
I’ve enjoyed lots of varieties of pumpkin bread over the years, but none of them come as close to the perfect amount of moistness and blend of flavors as this one! It’s great for breakfast with a cup of coffee or tea (try it toasted!), an afternoon pick-me-up or an after dinner dessert. It freezes well, so I always try to keep some on hand this time of year. Anyone who drops by for a visit thanks me. Leave out the raisins and/or nuts if you prefer and it’s still a delicious fall recipe!
WEEKNIGHT CHICKEN POT PIE
Talk about comfort food! When I’ve been out of the house all day, the last thing I want to do is to come in and spend a lot of time preparing supper. This delicious chicken pot pie is a snap to prepare and is sooo yummy. Don’t wait for the weekend for this one – this hardy fall recipe is easy enough to prepare any day of the week. It’s really a meal-in-one, but we love to pair it with a salad or fresh fruit.
THE WORLD’S BEST BAKED HONEYCRISP APPLES
This baked apple recipe competes with my sweet potato casserole for first place. No fall recipe collection would be complete without a delicious, mouth-watering recipe for baked apples and this one is IT! That is, unless you just can’t stand the taste of apples, or brown sugar or cinnamon or yummy things like that. 🙂 These baked honeycrisp apples are a snap to make and will be one of your go-to recipes this fall. Best ever. Promise.
PUMPKIN PIE DIP
This recipe has been around for a while – maybe you already make it. But, if not – this is a great, easy to put together recipe for snacking or as part of your harvest food table at a fall gathering. It’s yummy served with apple slices, vanilla wafers and ginger snaps, plus it looks really cute served in a small pumpkin that has been carved out!
30 Minute Chili
Now, come on – no fall recipe collection would be complete with a chili recipe! This is my go-to recipe for a bowl of chili every.single.time. It comes together super fast and is super tasty too! Another one of those satisfying meals that’s great when you’ve had a long day and don’t want to spend a ton of time in the kitchen.
Lib’s Famous Cornbread
And lastly – what’s the perfect pairing for a steamy, comfort filled bowl of chili on a cold day? Why, cornbread of course! Folks, I can’t tell you how delicious and moist this awesome cornbread is. It’s another one of those recipes that is famous around my house and will bring company coming for miles around anytime I prepare it. Just kidding – sort of. 🙂
Looks delicious! For the baked apples, do you scoop out all of the apple as well and mix it into the brown sugar mix or does it cook as is and then you eat it with the mix once it’s all complete?
Hi Kristin. I’ve done it two ways – scoop out just enough of the apple to hold the extra ingredients and scoop out most of the apple and mix it with the ingredients. Both ways work well!
I’m definitely making those baked apples, honeycrisp are my favorite! It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside just thinking about it. Here in Florida it’s warm outside so we don’t have the feeling of fall yet, but I like to pretend and enjoy the season from the air conditioning lol.
Buyimg the stuff to make baked apples for this weekend. Looking forward to this,
The baked apples sound yummy!!! Can’t wait to try them!

I’m fascinated with the stuffed apples, and am anxious to compare your sweet potato recipe with a “pumpkin crunch” casserole I make. Seems everyone LOVES “sweet potato sweets” … !!! Love the thought of how these both will smell when baking! Cannot WAIT!
