Okay, I’m cheating a little with this post. I’ve just gotten back from vacation so I haven’t had time to try out any new recipes in a few weeks, but I did bake a bunch of muffins and breads to take on our trip and that got me looking though my recipe archives. Plus, I’ve seen a big increase in search engine traffic looking for soups and other Fall comfort foods, so I thought I’d make a list of my favorites.
I’ll be back next week with something new, until then try out some of these great recipes:
Chicken Pot Pie Soup
One of my go-to soups in the fall and winter. Great for using up extra vegetables you have in the fridge or freezer. I have two different versions, a very simple, low-fat version that can be made in 5 minutes with stuff from your pantry or a slightly more involved (and higher fat) version with fresh vegetables. Both versions are great!
Pumpkin Apple Streusal Muffins
Just made up a batch of these for the trip. They’re low-fat, too!
Swirled Caramel and Pumpkin Cheesecake Supreme
Definitely not low-fat, but worth it!
Double Chocolate Pumpkin Cupcakes
I love the flavor that pumpkin adds to the chocolate. I will be doing more experimenting with pumpkin and chocolate this year.
Chicken Tortilla Soup
This soup is very healthy and filling. I alternate regularly between this and the Chicken Pot Pie soup. I could probably live on just these two soups all Fall and Winter long and be completely happy.
Probably my favorite cookies. I’ve been making them since I was a kid.
I also made a batch of these for my trip. They’re a great snack for the road, but be careful or you’ll wind up eating them all! They’re quite addictive.
Lentil Soup with Bacon
Another good, hearty soup. I wasn’t a big fan of lentils before this, but bacon makes everything better.
Banana Coffee Cake with Cinnamon-Chocolate Chip Streusel
I love the cinnamon streusal and chocolate chips together. I haven’t made this recipe in a while but I’m planning to make it again soon.
Pumpkin-Cinnamon Streusal Buns
Yeah, I just posted these a few weeks ago, but they were a big hit, so I had to include them in this list. You won’t regret making these, plus they’re light, so you don’t have to feel guilty about eating them!
