8 Best Fall Recipes to Try This September

September is here, and with it comes the beloved season of warm days and chilly nights, sweater weather, colorful leaves, pumpkins, and pumpkin-flavored everything, autumn fun, and festivities, and, for a lot of us, a much busier schedule. Having more things on your agenda means having less time for cooking, and particularly scouring the Internet for special fall recipes to capture those autumn vibes.

Let’s kick off the back-to-school season with easy and practical fall recipes for busy weeknight dinners, snacks, and all our favorite autumn-ish freshly-baked goods. Plus, given that many of us are still working from home for the foreseeable future, why not add some freezer-friendly, make-ahead lunches to our cooking repertoires?

From creamy pumpkin pasta and slow-cooker pot roast to apple crisp and pumpkin bread, here are eight fall recipes to inspire your cooking all month long.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
