Fall Recipe Roundup

9 Easy Recipes to Keep on Hand in Autumn

Changing seasons in the kitchen can be a welcome adventure, but it can also be like changing out a seasonal wardrobe. We’ve gotten comfortable with our go-to meals and suddenly the strawberries aren’t as red and sweet and the summer squash flavor is lacking. It’s the time if  year when we start craving foods that are a little warmer, a little spicier and little cozier, like satisfying stews, homey curries and roasted vegetables with the slightest bit of sweet caramelization.

This is the time when I rely on my autumnal “keeper recipes.” You know the ones you can make with your eyes closed and your family loves? It doesn’t have to be a difficult shift out of your dinner rotation into more seasonal options.
