September falls in the awkward time when we’re all transitioning between late summer and early fall, and Southerners react by focusing on two things: football season and comforting fall food.
Luckily we’ve got the perfect recipes to kick off tailgating time, including four game-day snack trays that’ll feed your crowd all season. These creative supper ideas range from pepper jelly-glazed baked chicken wings to bacony deviled eggs.
And what about the weeknights between game-day weekends? We’re glad you asked. Serve up one of our five fix-and-freeze dinner recipes—think sheet-pan shrimp fajita bowls and pasta shells stuffed with smoked pork—and a flavorful new (Indian-inspired!) twist on red beans and rice by chef Cheetie Kumar.
To finish any feast, there’s no better way to welcome autumn than with our best-ever old-fashioned apple pie. Tart, spiced apples plus a buttery latticed crust equals perfection—and your whole crew will agree.
Here are 20 cozy new recipes to get you excited for fall.
