Sage Lemon Butter Chicken Piccata

Chicken is a weeknight dinner hero, but listen when we say it doesn’t have to be boring. This version from Half Baked Harvest uses a white wine pan sauce with tons of herbs, lemon, and butter to really enhance the flavor. Alongside your chicken, you’ll whip up a mashed cauliflower (don’t be intimidated, it’s just as simple as potatoes!), with a sprinkling of thyme to tie it all together.

Slow Cooker Garlic Pork Stir Fry

Every home cook needs a couple of recipes in their back pocket for those extra busy weeknights. The nights when you have zero time to fuss, and need a dinner that can practically cook itself. *Enter* this pork stir fry that’s made in a slow cooker with just a handful of ingredients. Set your slow cooker in the morning, boil your noodles at dinnertime, and serve up a meal the entire fam will love.

Orzo with Caramelized Vegetables and Ginger

If rice and pasta had a baby, it would be orzo. It’s one of our absolute favorite pastas to cook with, and this fun, seasonal recipe is no exception. You’ll be incorporating some hearty fall veggies like sweet potatoes, onions, mushrooms, and swiss chard. The result? Dinnertime perfection.

Creamy Pumpkin Ricotta Stuffed Shells

Would it even be an October dinner menu without a good dose of pumpkin recipes involved? Not a chance. This time around, we’re trying Freutcake’s pumpkin ricotta stuffed shells that are best described as cozy comfort in a bowl. Think lasagna without all the extra work and 100% weeknight dinner approved!

Fall Weekend Brunch Idea

Veggie Frittata

Any time we’ve got guests to impress for breakfast, a good frittata is our go-to. It looks super fancy, but truthfully, it’s one of the simplest one-and-done brunch items that’s so easy to customize. Love & Lemons is sharing their best tips to ace your frittata, and spoiler alert: a cast-iron skillet is a must.

Pumpkin Spice Braided Brioche Knots

 

Full disclosure: this recipe isn’t necessarily for the beginners. It starts with making your own brioche dough (an adventure in and of itself), and there’s a good bit of technique involved throughout the process. But if you’re up for a challenge, we promise these gorgeous pumpkin spice knots won’t disappoint. 

Fall Cocktail to Sip

Blood Orange Moscow Mule

We’ve all seen those cool copper mugs on Instagram, and now is the time to put them to work. We’re making Moscow Mules with a homemade blood orange simple syrup, all thanks to Zainab of A Classic Twist. With just a little bit of stovetop prep work, this is the fall cocktail you’ll be sipping on repeat.
