Fabulous Fall Soups

How to Make Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

If you ask me, fall is the perfect time of year for soup. Not only are there amazing ingredients to use, but there's just something about a hot bowl of soup that screams, "comfort food." Whether it's butternut squash, pumpkin, or pear you love, any one of the delicious soup recipes below is sure to get you in the fall spirit. 

Editor recommendation: Red Pepper Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons - If you're a grilled cheese and tomato soup lover, this is a fun take on that recipe you won't be able to put down!

  • Red Pepper Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons

    Served at room temperature on a warm day or served warm on a cool late summer evening.

  • Pumpkin and Pear Soup

    The easy soup recipe comes together incredibly quick, but tastes like it took hours of simmering on the stove. 

  • White Bean Stew

    Made with ground beef, Great Northern beans, tomato, onion, red pepper flakes, spinach, and Italian spices, this is one hearty stew you won't want to miss.

  • Copycat Panera Autumn Squash Soup

    If you've ever tried the Autumn Squash Soup at Panera Bread, you know how delicious and flavorful it is.

  • Slow Cooker Reuben Soup

    If you are a fan of reuben sandwiches, then you are going to adore this soup recipe. It's everything that you love about the sandwich, but it's in soup form!

  • Creamy Cabbage Soup

    What sets this Creamy Cabbage Soup apart is that it's an easy soup recipe that's creamy thanks to the addition of milk and cream.

Fall Favorite Sides & Appetizers

Creamy Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Fall means harvest time and holiday food. And what's better at any holiday table than sides and appetizers? They really bring the meal together. For me, the best sides are cheesy, gooey and ultra comforting. We're talking mac and cheese, pasta, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. All of these recipes (and more, less carb-filled ones) can be found below. Enjoy!

Editor recommendation: Puff Pastry Baked Brie with Pears - This dish brings together literally ALL my favorite things. Bread, cheese, and fruit. If you're looking for an easy-to-make, crowd-pleasing appetizer, this is the one. 

Fall-Inspired Dinner Recipes

Crisp and Cozy Pork Chop Pan Dinner

These hearty mains will fill you up and completely satisfy your cravings for all things fall. From a tasty pork chop sheet pan dinner dressed with apples and onions to butternut squash stuffed pasta shells baked with alfredo sauce and comforting chicken pot pie, these easy fall dinner recipes will remind you why this season is one of the very best for foodies. 

Editor recommendation: Super Stuffed Acorn Squash -  This is one of my favorite things to make as a Thanksgiving side dish, but it works well for any meal. Perfect for vegetarians, this dish brings savory, hearty flavors to your plate with ease. Depending on the size of the squash, this can be made as a main dish or a side.
