Is there anyone out there who wouldn’t list comfort food as one of their favorite things about fall? For me it’s right up there with cozy sweaters, the vibrant foliage, football Sundays, and apple picking. And because the fall/winter seasons last forever here in New England (seriously, we’ll be lucky if spring weather arrives by April…), comfort food becomes a way of life for nearly six months. So I thought it only made sense to collect some of my very favorite recipes here in one place so I don’t have to go hunting for them when I’m meal planning every week.

Hearty soups and stews, big pots of chili, baked pasta dishes, slow cooker meals, and so much more – I just know you’ll find something to love! I was planning to include desserts in this round-up too, but as the list of savory recipes got longer and longer, I decided to break it into two parts. Stay tuned, the sweets edition of fall favorites will be coming soon!
