Fall Recipe Favorites

by Jen on November 4, 2012

I made a pot of my favorite chicken tortilla soup this evening and it reminded me of all the “fall-ish” recipes that I love but have kind of forgotten about on my old recipe blog, Bakin’ and Eggs. I thought I would do a little roundup to give you some recipe inspiration. And yes, I am still planning to migrate the recipes/content from that blog to a recipe index on Peanut Butter Runner. It will happen!

So here are 10 forgotten favorites. And be kind regarding the photography…some of it is pretty bad!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Island Pork Tenderloin

Three Ingredient Pot Roast

White Chicken Chili

Chicken Pie with Biscuit Crust

Pumpkin Tart with Gingersnap Crust

Herbs de Provence Chicken and Orzo

Beef Bolognese

Roasted Spiced Sweet Potatoes

What is one of your very favorite fall recipes? Links encouraged!

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting:
(These are always a HUGE hit!)

Lima Beans with Monterrey Jack & Bacon
(A favorite holiday side dish.)

Tuscan Bean Soup
(I made this last night. SO good!)

And my all time fave cold weather dish is a chicken & dumpling recipe I got from your blog! I’m forever grateful for that one!

These all look yummy, Jen! RIght now, the chicken tortilla soup sounds perfect. My favorite, must-have for cold months isn’t a dish, but a kitchen staple. I always have a nutritious, homemade broth made or stored in the freezer that’s ready to use. Rich stock/broth is the foundation for most winter dishes here. I use it for soups and stews of course, but also to cook grains in, use to flavor sauteed foods and stir-fry, etc. We also will just drink it like tea sometimes, maybe with some miso paste. I save bones from roasted chickens and also buy chicken feet from a farmer here (I know, that probably sounds gross). I store a stock bag of veggie scraps and then always have the ingredients ready for the next batch. Add cold, filtered water, apple cider vinegar and strain 24 hours later. I can’t live without it in the kitchen.

That chicken orzo looks great!

I really like my pumpkin tempeh pie… even if the hubby didn’t. ;)

That chicken orzo dish looks fantastic! I definitely need to try it. I love chilis and soups, but I also am head over heels for the Vegan Pumpkin cinnamon rolls! http://www.ahealthysliceoflife.com/recipes/?recipe_id=6008371

oh yum! i have had a serious cinnamon roll craving lately!

All of those look so comforting and delicious- like they should be eaten fireside & wrapped up in a warm blanket! My favorite fall recipe is by Williams Sonoma- Pumpkin Dessert Squares. They tell you to use their brand of pumpkin butter, but I usually use TJ’s or HT’s! You will not be disappointed if you make these- but you might become addicted! They are a little too easy to make and keep around the house:)
