Fall and winter is the best time to break out your cooking skills and really show them off, especially because fall recipes are pretty easy to make if you follow the recipe and stick to cheap, seasonal products. And basically everything looks delicious when it’s roasted, and basically every food is roasted in fall recipes so… problem solved. Here’s some Country Living recipes to try out.
Sweet-and-Spicy Chicken With Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Asparagus
This recipe is pretty easy, and you can make it with a cooked grocery store chicken for a cheaper and easier option, you just need to put the chicken in for a little in your oven (be extremely watchful of the chicken if you do this) to get the sweet chilli sauce soaked into the chicken. Otherwise, the meal is pretty easy and doable, and would make a perfect dinner for a get together!
Pear Tartlets with Brown-Sugar Crème Fraîche
These little tarts are perfect for that fall dessert recipe you’ve always wanted to make that doesn’t involve any sort of pumpkin (for those pumpkin haters out there). Plus, all of the tarts have half a bartlett pear, which means it’s healthy (in a way) and you don’t have to feel bad about it afterwards (even though you should never feel bad for dessert).
Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Rosemary and Pears
Another pear recipe for the fall, this one is really good and is definitely one of our favourites. This mix of rosemary, garlic, pears and onions gives this dish a perfect mix of fall flavours, and we even suggest adding a little (like a pinch) of cloves to give the plate a little extra fall flavour. Plus, this is a great dish to pull out cause it’s easy (pork chops are like, the easiest meat to make) and the pears and rosemary make it look fancy (if you need to impress someone).
Fall Vegetable Chilli
Chilli is one of the easiest dishes to make, and although it looks like a lot of work, should only take about 30-40 minutes. This specfic chilli is easy because it calls for the vegetables that you can find during the season at your grocery store, and not anything at all fancy. The recipe is also classicly spiced, so it tastes exactly like any Southwestern chilli, just with a little fall twist to it. Country living suggests pairing it with store-bought biscuits and a salad.
Farfalle with Grilled Fall Veggies
This recipe is perfect for making a fall recipe that’s not too crazy fancy, but still super delicious (plus, pasta is pretty hard to mess up). The recipe is literally just pasta with chopped seasonal vegetables, which you can find in your grocery store, all cooked with a bit of olive oil. Country living also suggests that if you have fresh basil, mint, parsley, or dill in the garden or the fridge, chop 1/4 cup and stir into this vitamin-packed pasta just before serving.
Another chilli, we know, but this one is a little different than the last: adding pumpkin and beef, as well as a little less Southwestern spice, this chilli is a little more on the classic autumn vibes than the first recipe we showed you, and also just as good. Plus, the recipe calls for canned pumpkin, not fresh, so you don’t have to get all up in a pumpkin’s business if you don’t want to.
