Fall is definitely here! The days have turned cooler, and what better time to whip up something warm and comforting in the kitchen? Take a look at these easy favorites, most of which can be made ahead. If you’re looking for a dessert to pair up with these, try some Carrot Snacking Cake or Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.


apple buttermilk pancakes

Take advantage of the bounty of apples this time of year and whip up a batch of these tasty pancakes. The other night I tried peeling, coring, and slicing up four apples, then sauteing them in a few tablespoons of butter. When the apples were soft, I added a few heaping tablespoons of brown sugar, which melted into a buttery, caramel-like sauce. Let it bubble just a bit, watching carefully. Spooned over the pancakes, it was an amazing treat that completely eliminated the need for syrup!

hamburger soup

This is a filling, economical soup to put on the stove and forget about, then freeze for another day. When I make it with lamb, I serve it with a side of tzatziki and pita.
