4 Fall Recipes You Need to Try!

I get so excited when the season starts to change over to Fall. It is definitely my favorite season to cook and bake. Cool temperatures, crisp air and so many fun flavors! I have made and loved all 4 of these fall recipes so I thought I'd share them with you.
Lentil Chili: This chili has become my husband's favorite. There is no meat in it, which I thought we would miss because we both love a good hardy chili, but we don't miss it at all. Just trust me when I say you need to make this! I always make it with a side of beer bread and use a pumpkin flavored beer.

Rachel Ray's Pumpkin Pasta: When I first read about using pumpkin flavoring in a pasta I was almost disgusted, but then the first day of fall rolled around and I decided now or never and made it. You guys, this is surprisingly delicious. I love the flavors of the pumpkin, sausage, sage and garlic together. Please don't miss out on the amazingness of pumpkin in your pasta!

Chef in Training's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies: These cookies have just the right amount of pumpkin in them. They are soft because of the instant pudding and are delicious! If you can't find the pumpkin pie spice instant pudding no worries...use plain vanilla instant pudding and add about a teaspoon of regular pumpkin pie spice. Problem solved!

Pioneer Woman's Apple Dumplings: This has to be my favorite fall dessert. I've made these too many times to count and everytime people ask me for the recipe. This recipe has a secret ingredient that I did NOT expect...Mountain Dew. Make these then thank me later!

What are your favorite fall recipes?

Those apple dumplings. I want some now.

Have you seen that Rachael Ray recipe for butternut squash and sausage pasta (I think she calls it Butternut and Sausage Riggies)? It's on my to-try list this fall!

I am definitely going to try the Lentil Chili! My husband is such a meat lover, but I don't like the greasy-ness that is often leftover in chilli because of the meat... anyway, totally trying it!

All of these recipes make me want to make them right now. I don't even know which one sounds like my favorite, but chili is always a winner in my book. Bet Aiden will love your cooking!

I love a good beef stew in the fall...maybe with some Guinness for flavor!
