Fall is my favorite time of year for cooking. Transitioning back into cold-weather meals full of hearty ingredients is a pleasure after the lighter fare of summer has been taking up room on the table, and my whole family gets excited at the prospect of enjoying their favorite comfort foods again.

That being said, I also like to focus on simple recipes that can be made on weeknights. Between the hustle and bustle of work and school, it's always important that our meals are both satisfying and easy to put together, whether that means they're made in the slow cooker, they use pre-seasoned roasts or they're cooked on the stove top in just one pan.

If you're looking for the same, these recipes totally fit the bill. Creamy pasta dishes, hearty soups, meat-and-potatoes meals and more — these are the family-friendly fall meals you'll find yourself turning to time and time again.
