A list of fabulous fall recipes featuring hearty and flavorful dishes like baked apples, pumpkin pie and mashed sweet potatoes.

Enjoy the flavors of apple, pumpkin and seasonal vegetables in this list of fall recipes, with plenty of options for casual dinners and elegant gatherings.

Fall is one of the best times  of the year to focus on cooking and baking. Most of my favorite dishes are considered fall recipes and I’m always tempted to make them all year long. I get pretty impatient because ingredients such as pumpkin are just too good to wait for!

I’m pretty sure each one of these recipes makes fall feel like an even more magical time of the year. You could make the perfect party spread from this list of seasonal dishes.

Of course, food is one of my favorite things and fall food, especially, has the perfect blend sweet, savory and festive options. Between apples, pumpkin, pears and root veggies, it’s hard to choose what the best flavor of fall would be. No fall gathering is complete without a spooky Halloween charcuterie board or harvest themed Thanksgiving charcuterie board!

I’ve had people attempt to convince me that fall and all its lovely flavors were overrated. I know it can feel like pumpkin comes out of nowhere and blasts onto the scene to take over the fall season. However, there are so many other recipes that don’t involve pumpkin that are perfect for cooler weather. This list has everything from cookies and cakes to savory side dishes along with some comfort food classics like turkey noodle soup.
