Comforting Recipes for When the Temperatures Fall
We all know it is coming. The leaves are starting to change. The temperatures are dropping at night. The boxelder bugs are out in force. Winter is coming. With the cooler nights and the transition into autumn, it is time to dust off the casserole dish and bring out the apple peeler; comfort foods are on the horizon. Here is a list of some of our team’s favorite fall recipes.

Favorite Fall Recipe: Chili
Now chili brings us to a much contested part of the article. If you talk to five different people you will have five different ideas for what makes a good chili. For the sake of today’s topic we will stick with the basics. Here is a cookbook staple recipe for chili from Betty Crocker.
Jeff Flanery, Reverse Mortgage Manager
Favorite Fall Recipe: Tater Tot Hotdish
Nothing says Minnesota like Tater Tot Hotdish! When I spoke to Jeff he mentioned that his wife, Wendy, recently swapped out the ground beef for shredded chicken in her recipe and it was a game changer. Here is the traditional version from Delish.

Favorite Fall Recipe: Lasagna
Similar to the debates about chili, lasagna is another food where you will have differing opinions on what makes the best one. For our Office Manager, Jody, it is all about the ingredients. Sure, you can make a lighter version, but should you? This recipe from Giada de Laurentiis is the classic Italian version inspired by her Italian heritage.

I know, I know, we are back at chili. However, this version is a complete 180 from the traditional version we mentioned above. This recipe for white chicken chili from Taste of Home will make enough for your next potluck or to reheat the next day for lunch.
