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!
I found your blog a while ago when I was searching for chicken pot pie soup recipes (the one you have here is AMAZING, by the way). I’ve never commented before, so I thought it was high time that I did so. I just made the chicken tortilla soup for the first time tonight, and it was fantastic! I have yet to find something here that I dislike; apparently we have similar tastes. 😉 Anyway, just wanted to thank you for the wide variety of recipes you highlight here. This is one of the first places I look when I’m in the mood to try something new. The chicken tortilla soup will definitely be joining my regular soup rotation!
Thanks so much, Rachel! I’m glad you like those soups, they’re definitely my favorites, too.
