14 Yummy Fall Recipes

If there’s anything I love in this world – other than my family, friends, doctors, coffee, and books, but whatever – it’s cooking. And some dishes are made for cooler nights and the foods that are in season in the fall. So today I’ve pulled together a roundup of 14 good recipes perfect for your fall dinner or desert.

14 Yummy Fall Recipes

  • Easy Potatoes in Foil – Your life is busy this time of year, but that doesn’t mean that you should sacrifice the quality of your food. Try this easy recipes for potatoes for a delicious part of your meal without as much hassle.
  • Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas – One of my favorite things about this time of year is the return of the crockpot. Put the ingredients in, set it, and go about your afternoon!
  • Quinoa Taco Bowls with Avocado – Make your delicious dinner work for you by eating this taco bowl made with quinoa! Quinoa is the only grain that has protein in it, making its value even greater than its taste.
  • Vegetable Soup – Just because you’re a vegetarian doesn’t mean that you can’t eat soup! Or maybe you need to up your veggie intake, or maybe you just like vegetables. Whatever your reason, enjoy this vegetable soup.
  • Balsamic Chicken with Asparagus and Tomatoes – Balsamic vinegar makes almost everything better. It’s practically a fact. Try putting it on chicken in this recipe, along with asparagus and tomatoes for a delicious dinner.
  • Roasted Sweet Potatoes – I love sweet potatoes like there’s no tomorrow. Homemade fries, chips, roasted … ugh I love them. Anyway, here’s a great recipe to use for roasting them. And, by the way, sweet potatoes are better for you than others. I honestly have no idea why or how, but multiple doctors have told me this.
  • Spaghetti Squash Hashbrowns – This is a fun way to try hashbrowns, especially since it’s better for you because it’s a vegetable instead of a starch!
  • Spiced Sweet Potato Fries – Please see above rant on how much I adore sweet potatoes. Make these.
  • Almond Joy Granola Bars – Homemade granola bars that taste like almond joys. I’m all for every bit of this; and by the way, when you make something like this from scratch, you’re able to avoid the food preservers that are generally not good for you.
  • Quick Tex Mex Sweet Potato Skillet – I can’t have cheese, but if I could, I’d eat this with cheese. It looks delicious! Who doesn’t love spicy and semi-healthy things, especially when they are quick to make?
  • Baked Sweet Potato Fritters – I think at this point I’ll just stop rambling about how much I love sweet potatoes and just let you get the vibe from my previous descriptions of sweet potatoes.
  • Vegan Gluten Free Ginger Cookies – These are my go-to cookies right now! They are free of all the things that I can’t have and oh-so delicious. Right now, I’m not making them into gingerbread men, but just rolling the dough into small balls and pressing down with a fork. They’re so good that they rarely make it to the third day, let alone the fourth.
  • Paleo Chocolate Nut Clusters – This is the kind of dessert that you can buy at places like Whole Foods, but they usually have things in them that I can’t eat. So I make them from scratch! Satisfy that sweet AND salty craving with one item!
  • Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Cookies – For the past 3-4 weeks, I’ve been making a batch every week for my breakfasts. If you’re on Methotrexate, I strongly advise making these. I take mine every Sunday night and am generally rather nauseated on Monday. For me personally, I don’t actually get sick, but I feel like I’m going to. If I have a little something in my stomach, I feel less sick. So these are flavorful enough that they’re not bland, but because of the oats and the flour (I make them with gluten-free flour), they’re hardy enough that it helps my nausea. Also, they’re just generally delicious, so I eat them on days when I’m not feeling Methotrexate, too.

    Cooking in the fall makes me so happy because it’s all the warm comfort foods again. That recipe for the quinoa avocado bowl is calling my name I think…

      Exactly! It’s hard to embrace beef stew in August. The quinoa avocado bowl is delicious, too.
