Our Favorite Fall Comfort Foods Are Here!

Actions

There are plenty of things to be excited about for fall — the Insta-worthy changing leaves, the #sweaterweather, and, of course, the chance to cozy up with some serious comfort food. Yeah, we're talking pumpkin. And a whole lot more. Check out five faves we can't live without.

Creamy pumpkin pasta

Pumpkin isn’t just for the PSL or sugary muffins. Explore the gourd’s more savory side with this easy pasta recipe . We love it 'cause it's sooooo creamy and comforting, yet so much more interesting than your average bowl o' noodles.

Roasted vegetable soup

The perfect way to spend a chilly night in? Curled up with a cozy fire and a bowl of hot veggie soup. This recipe comes loaded with healthy root veggies that will keep you nourished (and feeling pleasantly full!) all season long.

Beef, beer and BBQ stew

Featuring your favorite beer and three glorious pounds of beef, this stew is (obviously) the ultimate game day dish . And because it’s so easy to make — hello, slow cooker! — you'll have plenty of time to work on the rest of your Sunday spread.

Carrot cake whoopie pies

What’s better than carrot cake? Snack-sized carrot cake. While traditional layer cake requires a plate and fork (so we've been told), we consider these whoopie pies the ultimate fall finger food. We can't help ourselves.

Indoor s’mores

Campfire season is over, but the s’more lives on! This recipe gives you the gooey, graham crackery goodness of s’mores from the comfort of your kitchen. No skewers required.

Simple applesauce

Sometimes the simplest foods take up big spaces in our hearts. Case in point: applesauce. This recipe only takes few ingredients and three easy steps to make, but has a story as rich as its flavor.
