Hey everyone!

I love Autumn as it is a beautiful time of year here for us in Canada. One of my favorite things the cooler weather brings is the need for comfort foods. Well, I can't speak for you, but it's a need for me. lol

Anyhow, I especially enjoy making soups, stews, and chili this time of year. That's not to mention Fall fruit treats, such as apple pies, crumbles, jams, and so much more. I love it all! Fall comfort food makes me happy.

For me, I love soups, especially! I will make soup from just about anything. I didn't grow any pumpkins this year, but I will definitely be buying one or two. Creamy pumpkin soup is one of my absolute favorite things to make. It lends very well to spices of different sorts, which makes it exciting to work with. It works with curries, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and so on.

And lets not forget pumpkin pie. What Thanksgiving table would be complete without some form of pumpkin pie? So yeah, pumpkins, squash, and all the other wonderful Fall harvest veggies are amazing in comfort foods.

I especially love chanterelle mushrooms, which grow in abundance locally here....if you know where to look. Sadly, they are not cheap to buy at the grocery store, but they are my absolute favorite mushroom, which fall into my Fall comfort foods. Truthfully, I haven't met a mushroom I didn't like, but Fall harvest is amazing for shrooms, especially chanterelles. Love em!

What are your favorite comfort foods for Fall? Post your favorite things to eat in the Fall. Even if you live down under I would love to know what your favorites are? I realize it's just entering Spring for members down under, but you can still post your favorite Fall recipes.

ButterNut Squash Soup

There are better recipes. (The NYT and Minimalist Bakers are my two favorites)

This is one of the simplest.

This is amazing. I’ve made it several times, playing with the recipe as I go along. I added potatoes one time. So delicious.

All of the recipes mentioned are probably delicious. Most I have never even tried. Trying out pumpkin pie gets now on my bucket list. Is there such a thing as pumpkin pecan pie? In Star Trek Enterprise Tucker mentioned that he likes pecan pie. That with vegan vanilla ice cream, damn!

I'm lazy, so no matter what the weather is, I'll most likely eat what I always eat. But for me, my normal meals are comfort foods. I'm boring like that. But I don't get bored.

When my birthday arrives at October, I might buy something special. Maybe vegan sour cream and onion lentil chips. Maybe chocolate or cookies. But I'm too lazy to bake or cook something special myself.

I'll get hungry thinking about treats. I must stop now.

Reading you talking about "savoury" this and "treacle" that makes me want to listen to 1980s British music (and so I am!).

My favorite fall comfort foods are pies (both savory and sweet), apple-anything, casseroles, chilis and soups. I'm going to be making roasted butternut squash-ginger soup soon.
