Easy Fall Feasts for Family and Friends

Growing up in the South, we love our Fall traditions. Of course, the most popular one is football! Our family is looking forward to a great season on Saturdays and Sundays. But Fall also means comfort food! Who doesn’t love a good bowl of chili with cornbread? Or how about some mac and cheese with ham? Yum!!

I can’t wait to share some recipes that are quick and easy to make for your family and friends. As the weather starts to cool off, you won’t have to spend as much time in the kitchen. You can enjoy some family time and fun activities instead! Let me do all the work for you! Here are some of my favorite Fall dinner ideas:

1. Chili & Cornbread

2. Macaroni & Cheese with Ham

3. Homemade Pizza

4. Tacos

5. Beef Stew

A little bit of sweet and a little bit of spicy is just right in this fall favorite.


1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

Dash ground allspice

Dash ground cloves

2 tablespoons butter, softened

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 cup milk


In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, allspice and cloves. In another bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk; beat just until combined. Pour into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cut into squares; serve warm with butter if desired. Yield: 9 servings.

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love everything about Fall: warm sweaters, crisp weather, the first frost and snow, colorful leaves, and most importantly all of the delicious food. I could eat squash every day and never get bored of it.

I decided to share with you some of my favorite recipes that are perfect for Fall. My family loves them and hopefully yours will too! If you want to see more recipes, check out my blog at https://allspiceblog.com/.

You will fall in love with this feast. It’s the perfect way to end a meal and the best part is that it only takes about 5 minutes to make! A crisp, buttery puff pastry, topped with a layer of whip cream cheese filling and sliced strawberries. The final touch is drizzling chocolate sauce over the top.

This can be made smaller by reducing the size of your circle and then cutting it into wedges or making them individually in ramekins. I just like to cut mine into slices and serve on plates.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter and add 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Fill puffs with mixture and top each with a slice of strawberry. Drizzle with melted chocolate and serve immediately.

We’ve enjoyed this easy-to-make dish for years. We found it in one of our favorite cookbooks, “The Best Recipe,” and have adapted it to include allspice and nutmeg. It’s really a cross between a custard and a quiche. But whatever you call it, this dish makes an excellent breakfast, lunch or dinner.

If you like the taste of nutmeg, but don’t like having to grate it every time you use it, we suggest buying ground nutmeg. It’s a little more expensive than the whole nutmeg berries (which keep better), but you can find it in most grocery stores these days. If you can’t find it in your local store, you can order it online at Penzey’s Spices. It comes in a 2-ounce bottle that lasts forever!

When making the crust, it helps to freeze the butter for 30 minutes before grating it on the large holes of a box grater. It makes grating the butter easier and keeps the butter cold longer so that when you mix it with the flour and salt, your hands don’t warm up the batter too quickly.
