Spiced Pumpkin Biscuits
Chicken, Kale, and Quinoa Soup
We took four of the top recipe search categories from our website—chicken, kale, quinoa, and soup—and combined them into one tasty dish that we think will become your new favorite. Rinse the quinoa to ensure that any bitter coating is removed.
Bacon and Butternut Pasta
Broth, thickened with flour and enriched with crème fraîche, forms the savory sauce in this dish. We like the addition of earthy, hearty kale which helps balance the sweetness from the squash.
Phyllo dough gives this pie a crunchy topping, with underlying gooey goodness hiding below.
Kale and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese
Let veggies in on the grilled cheese action with this gooey sandwich recipe.
Loaded Potato Soup
This delicious and comforting soup tastes like it took hours to make, yet is ready to eat in just 20 minutes. Provide a toppings bar of crumbled bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and thinly sliced green onions so family members can pick and choose their favorites.
Overnight Apple Butter
A mixture of apple varieties, rather than just one type, will produce apple butter with rich, complex flavor in this slow cooker recipe. Good choices include Esopus Spitzenburg, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Northern Spy, Rome, Stayman, Winesap, and York.
Enjoy the apple butter over toast or English muffins, or serve it with pork chops or chicken.

Whole-wheat flour dons an excellent disguise in these delicious muffins, a treat for both kids and adults.
Caramelized Onion, Gruyère, and Bacon Spread
Serve this savory caramelized onion, Gruyère, and bacon spread with crackers or bread slices. If you can't find Gruyère, substitute raclette, fontina, or Swiss cheese.
Spiced Caramel Cider
Snuggle up to a cozy fireplace with this warm, flavorful, and savory cider. If you'd prefer a beverage with less spice, try substituting apple juice for the apple cider. It's fantastic either way.
Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
Pop this cheesy casserole in the oven and let it bake while you sip coffee. Find turkey breakfast sausage in the freezer section of the supermarket with other breakfast meats.

The glaze on this mouthwatering cake is enough to make you want to lick your screen. Drain the canned pumpkin before making the cake batter to keep the cake's texture light.
