Fall Favorite Recipes

I have lots of yummy recipes to share with you today.  I cooked a lot this month which always makes for a delicious round up the last week of the month.  We ate game day food, comfort foods, pumpkin treats and salads.  Basically, there is something for everyone in this post.

Enjoy!!  I hope you find a new recipe or two to try at your house.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Banana Mini Bundt Cakes -
recipe here - could easily be made into loaves, mini muffins, muffins or bundt cakes!
These were a little lighter and fluffier than pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.

Layered Nachos -
I gave the Pioneer Woman's Layered Chicken Nachos a try this month and they were so good.  Perfect for game day or a fun dinner at home.  We baked them and then added all of our favorite toppings.

Spaghetti & Meatballs-
This is one of my favorite meals and my husband doesn't love it.  He'll eat it occasionally, but I always plan to make it when I know he isn't going to be home for dinner.  Recipe here

Pumpkin Coffee Cake - this was so easy with a boxed yellow cake mix
recipe here

Salads packed with veggies!  I made sure to buy a buy container of mixed greens or baby spinach every week to ensure we ate lots of salads.  We tried a yummy Cranberry Gourmet Dressing from Aldi and then ate our usual favorite Ken's Honey Mustard.

Italian Nachos-
A copycat recipe from Old Chicago that's so good.  They've basically got all of your favorite pizza toppings on nacho chips dipped in marinara.  How could you go wrong??  Recipe here

Baking and Roasting-
We did lots of baked chicken and roasted veggies month.  I marinated the chicken in Zesty Lime Vinagrette and Montreal Steak Seasoning.  Baked the chicken for about 45 minutes and it was so good!  We'd have it for dinner and then I'd make chicken & veggie bowls for lunch.

We roasted green beans, broccoli and diced sweet potatoes.  Wash everything well.  Cut them up into bite sized pieces.  Drizzle olive oil and sea salt.  Roast at 400 for 20-30 minutes until they're browned enough for you.  So good and really great reheated.

Caramel Apple Crisp -
My recipe calls for light caramel and uses a couple different kinds of apples.
It was so good! recipe here

  1. I'm always so glad when it cools off enough to start roasting things in the oven again! I refrain from doing that all summer and I miss it so much. You made such a great variety of yummy things this month, from salads to sweet treats! I don't know what I'd do if my hubby didn't like spaghetti. We have that at least once a month - usually more. Paul doesn't like layered nachos, though - so I have to live with that! :)
