Our favorite autumn harvest recipes include lots of apples, squash, sweet potatoes, kale, Brussels sprouts, and pork. You know, all the good stuff that we crave when the leaves get crunchy and the sun gets lower in the sky. Stay warm and full, ya’ll.
Comfort finds us in unexpected ways. Thank goodness for that. And thank goodness for this not-too-sweet, subtly apple-y, kid-friendly quick bread.
Butternut Squash Gratin
"One of the best things I’ve EVER made." "Beautiful." "Comforting." "Delicious." "Easy." That's what folks are saying about this simple and satiating casserole.
Kale, Butternut Squash, and Farro Salad
This kale, butternut squash, and kale salad may conjure notions of autumn but it's actually really quite lovely all year long.
Edna Lewis's Apple Cake with Caramel Glaze
Warmly spiced with a pudding-like texture, this apple cake from Edna Lewis is truly easy—just stir together by hand. And it's unforgettable for reasons that have nothing to do with its ease.
Root Vegetable Gratin
This gratin is a great way to hide your veggies. Even from the kids. The hero? Cheese, natch. It'll have your whole family chowing down.
Quick to whip up, especially if you have leftover farro and squash, this salad bowl combines all the flavors you crave.
Chicken with Autumn Vegetables and Madeira
A Southern chef's riff on classic French coq au vin. We may have to change our allegiance from France to Frank. (Chef Frank Stitt, that is.)
Maple Roasted Pumpkin and Brussels Sprouts
Ever been tempted by those piles of beautiful autumn pumpkins and squash at the market, only to get home and wonder, “Um, now what?!” Thankfully, we have the perfect solution.
Roast Pork Loin with Apples and Onions
This pork loin, with its fennel and garlic rub and apples and onions roasted on the same sheet pan, is about to become your new favorite supper salvation.
So long, store-bought applesauce. Tuck into your own fuss-free, artisanal applesauce that's a little sweet, a little spicy, and as smooth or as chunky as you please.
Sheet Pan Chicken with Apples, Bacon, and Brussels Sprouts
Sheet pan dinners are not only trendy but they're a weeknight lifesaver, too. Less dishes to wash, less time spent in the kitchen and loads more flavor.
Roast Pork Chops
This simple recipe turns out comfort food of the most refined order. Not bad for a one-pan Sunday supper.
Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese
This skillet full of pumpkin macaroni and cheese awesomeness ranks off the charts in its indulgence-o-rama rating.
Pot-Roasted Pork Loin with Fall Fruits
Pork loin is first brined then pot-roasted for maximum flavor. Fall fruits, including raisins, figs, apricots, and prunes, are stewed and added to the pot.
Whole Apple Dumplings
These individual, apple-filled, rough puff pastry dumplings are superb for dessert. And just as good for breakfast.
Roasted Pumpkin with Parmesan
Roasted winter squash with a little bling in the form of Parmigiano-Reggiano. So simple. So surprising. So satisfying.
Roasted Sweet Potato-Brussels Sprouts Hash
An unconventional jumble of roast vegetables, crisp bacon, maple cinnamon pecans, and a dreamy, creamy maple-Sriracha yogurt sauce with a runny egg as a final flourish. Um. Yum.
Less fussy than a pie. With a charmingly and endearingly imperfect appearance that’s an ease to toss together. And a spare sweetness that's easy on the hips. You're welcome.
Pumpkin Swirl Brownies
These pumpkin swirl brownies are just as outrageously rich as you'd expect thanks to pumpkin spice cheesecake colliding with a pan of fudgy brownies.
