10 Fabulous Fall Recipe Ideas

What do you think of when temperatures get cooler? Do you think about recipes that are delicious for fall weather? Here are 10 fabulous fall recipe ideas.

When fall knocks on our door, we tend to want dishes that are more substantial, a little ~ more.

I love food any time of year. I enjoy finding dishes that use seasonal fruits, vegetables, and herbs. That’s a good thing. Why? Eating with the seasons adds more variety to our meals.

The more interesting and flavorful our food, the more we are satisfied and the less we eat.

You can’t have too many delicious fall recipe ideas in your recipe box.

Last night, we had one of our favorite couples over for dinner. Although the weather still isn’t quite cool enough for heartier fall dishes, I decided to do some fall recipe searching for the coming months.

I’ve found some fabulous fall recipe ideas for you ~ and me ~ to try.

  1. I hope that you had a nice Labor Day weekend. Sweet Shark smoked ribs (his ribs are to-die-for) and made delicious baked beans. I made my awesome favorite slaw and grilled okra. We had a wonderful meal ~ twice because we plan for leftovers.
  2. We’ve been watching tennis at the U.S. Open all week. The American men and women have had a fabulous tournament. I did cry when Francis Tiafoe beat my boy Rafa. If anyone had to beat him, I’m glad it was Tiafoe. He’s a great guy and an up-and-coming American player. This weekend are the women’s and men’s finals and we will have new champions.
  3. I hosted my first blog hop on Thursday. It’s called Celebrate the Holiday. Halloween was the theme for the first month. I had a wonderful group of creative ladies join me. (See the link below.)
  4. Our son flew in from Denver on Wednesday night and had dinner with us. He was actually here to play golf with his local buddies. Then they gathered to pick their fantasy football teams. It’s great to have him here for a few days.
  5. Friday night we hosted our good friends Valerie and Bill. They loved my fall tablescape and our dinner. It was great to spend time with them after a summer hiatus.
  6. This week on the blog was about fall tablescapes and Halloween: How to Set a Fall Table with Leaves and Festive Halloween Decorations for Your Entry.

Fabulous Fall Recipe Ideas: 10 Fabulous Finds

Here we go with Bluesky Browsing #54.

As a former cooking instructor for 15 years and a culinary graduate, I’m really picky about recipes. I can’t count the number of times I’d find a recipe to test and the ingredient list or instructions were not clear or didn’t follow good cooking practices. If I really liked the concept, I rewrote the recipe for correctness and clarity. (Even The Barefoot Contessa a couple of times.)

Although I have thousands of recipes in my files and dozens of cookbooks, I do love searching for and finding new recipes.

What were my criteria for selecting these fall recipe ideas?

  • It looks delicious.
  • It has seasonal ingredients.
  • Clear and correct instructions.
  • Easy for any level of cook to make.

I’ve included one of my favorite fall recipes, too.

I found a group of recipes that could easily make up a menu or they can stand alone.

  • Let’s start with two appetizers ~ a fall-forward charcuterie board and one of my own favorite fall appetizers.
  • A couple of salads full of fall ingredients.
  • A few choices for a main dish ~ pasta, salmon, and chicken.
  • Two delicious desserts with fall pears.

Enjoy them all.
