Fall Favorite Dinners

by jerseygirl on October 19, 2017 · 0 comments

The weather has gotten a bit cooler and I love serving a warm comforting dinner. Root veggies and autumn squash are perfect to incorporate into family meals. Take a look at a few of my favorites. Just click on the photo to take you to the recipe.

Red Wine Goulash via Food Fanatic

Mmmmnn, goulash. I remember being a child and my mom making this because my dad loved it. This goulash has a red wine gravy and I especially like egg noodles served with it.

Squash Gnocchi with Sage Butter

Melt in your mouth gnocchi made with squash and finished with sage butter. This is vegetarian comfort food.

Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potato by Souffle Bombay

A sweet potato stuffed with pulled pork. How convenient is that? It’s a whole meal in a potato!

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Delicata Squash Medley

Pork and delicata squash just remind me of fall. Add some potatoes and green beans. I love this meal which gets roasted all in one pan.

One Skillet Poblano Chili Mac

This is a favorite among kids and adults. It’s like chili mac but just a little more sophisticated. Not too spicy but it has the perfect amount of heat for a chili evening.

Fall weather is the best! There are so many good veggies that I have been getting from my CSA farm and incorporating them into my meals. What’s your favorite fall dinner?


Rustic Cinnamon Apple Tart

October 9, 2017

Watching the news lately has been depressing. Natural disasters, a mass shooting, politicians acting like spoiled kids…..it’s just too much for me to watch. I’m sure I’m not alone in this.   Turning on the TV makes me want to curl up with a blanket and watch a feel good movie. Some comfort food would […]

Pumpkin Monkey Bread Muffins #SundaySupper

September 24, 2017

It’s that time of year where fall has begun. I’m loving the cooler night- time weather, football on Sundays and watching my son’s high school soccer games. There’s apple picking, hayrides, bonfires and of course pumpkin season. Even though I think the pumpkin spice thing is sometimes overdone, I do look forward to baking with […]

I’ve been a little absent lately on the blog but I have been cooking up a storm. I have been enjoying my CSA shares from Fernbrook Farms every week. Right now there has been an abundance of end- of- the- season cherry tomatoes and I can never pick enough of them. So what to do […]

Summer Produce Recipes

July 27, 2017

Ahhh, it’s midsummer and I am enjoying all the fresh produce NJ has to offer. I really like belonging to Fernbrook Farms CSA. I have been getting produce that I probably normally wouldn’t buy and it is forcing me to try new vegetables that normally wouldn’t be on my menu. I also have a garden […]

Strawberry Basil Feta Skewers

July 9, 2017

In the summer, I love hanging out with a drink and a few appetizers. Entertaining doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated so I always keep some ingredients in my fridge to whip something up on short notice that goes well with a cocktail. As a matter of fact, these strawberry basil feta skewers are also […]

Cinnamon Cannoli Dip Recipe

June 9, 2017

Raise your hand if you’d like a cannoli. I can’t imagine that too many people dislike them. Growing up in an Italian/ Croatian family meant that at every family party or celebration had a pastry tray, cannoli or rum cake. There was nothing better than finishing off a meal with a crispy shell filled with creamy sweetened […]
