Swiss Chard & Italian Sausage Lasagna

Gnocchi with Sherried Shallots

Here's an easy way to make the most of your shallots. The cream and sherry bring out the sweetness, while the gnocchi soak up the flavorful sauce.

Pumpkin Risotto

"Awesome recipe. I keep a stock in my freezer for days I don't want to cook. I enjoy it with a little extra pumpkin!"

Talk about an easy weeknight meal! This sheet pan dinner is unbelievably simple — a real crowd-pleaser.

Stuffed Cabbage

Bring the homey flavor of cabbage to life with these rice-and-beef-stuffed leaves.

Wild Mushroom Stroganoff

Grilled Pear, Ham & Cheese Sandwich

"I knew this would make a great flavor combination, but I didn't know how good until I tasted it!"


Pomegranate, Pear & Arugula Salad

"I used pomegranate molasses instead of honey and upped the sugar slightly. A refreshing salad to cheer up a cold day!"

"I like this recipe a lot. I used fat-free Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Best part? It's easy to make."


Pumpkin Ravioli With Sage Butter Sauce

"I have made this recipe before for my spouse and I, and we just absolutely loved it. I did have to make homemade ravioli due to not being able to find them in stores. The filling was a little hard to work with, but it paid off in the end. I would definitely recommend this recipe to others.”


Butternut Squash Orzo

"This is a very good quick dinner for us now! The second time I made it I doubled the garlic, added half an onion more (and caramelized them) and added a big pinch of nutmeg (it complements the squash). I also toss in leftover roast chicken if I have some. Very good, very easy."


Shrimp & Butternut Squash in Coconut Milk Broth

"So good! I broiled some pressed and cubed tofu and used veggie broth to make this soup vegan. My spouse loved it! I did too!"


Pressure-Cooker Butternut, Chard & White Bean Soup

"Just got my Instant Pot and tried this recipe and the whole family loved it!! I added some pork shoulder meat to make it more tasty. Thank you."


Hungarian Mushroom Soup

"We loved this soup. Everyone ate it so fast that I immediately made a second batch. One thing I changed was to use an eight-ounce brick of low-fat cream cheese instead of the milk and flour."


Slow-Cooker Pork Roast & Mushrooms

"My spouse loved this and so did I! All in all it was a wonderful roast with lots of leftovers, enough gravy for tomorrow and more to freeze for future use.”


Kelly's Southwestern Beef Stew

“Fantastic! I must admit that I cheated a little and just threw everything in a slow cooker and turned in on low for eight hours (did not cook meat first). I also added two tablespoons of cornstarch the last hour to thicken it."


Slow-Cooker Rustic Lamb Stew

"A hearty and heart-warming stew — home style cooking at its best! I used half potatoes and half rutabaga. The gravy was bread-dippingly delicious and the lamb and vegetables were fork tender.”


Sweet Potato Curry With Spinach & Chickpeas

“This is such a great vegetarian dish, you won't miss having meat at all! the sweet potatoes and chickpeas are so filling and the tomato sauce is so good.”


Indian Lamb Curry

"I served this last week for our dinner after heading out to the mountains to get our Christmas tree! I made it a few days prior to allow the flavors to develop. It was the best lamb curry ever!”


Feta, Sweet Potato & Spinach Crustless Quiche

"This recipe is so delicious! It is amazing and I never would have put the ingredients together but wow! What a great quiche! I made the recipe as directed and it was perfect."

-Jennys Happy Food

Pear & Gruyere Omelet

"I absolutely loved this omelet! I made it as written and found it easy to make with a terrific taste. Will definitely make this again.”


Cheesy Ham & Potato Soup

"My kids aren't done eating this and I must rate it. I have the most picky five- and nine-year-old children in existence. My five-year-old had a second helping and my nine-year-old is finishing his. They both like it. It was super easy.”


Slow-Cooker Loaded Baked Potato Soup

"Love this recipe. Simple and delicious. In reference to other comments, this soup will be thick or thin depending on the size of potatoes you are using. If you prefer your soup on the thicker side like chowder, use large potatoes or add a few more than what's called for. If the soup is too thick, add more stock.”


Crock Pot White Chicken Chili

"Excellent! It is so good, we are having a hard time waiting to get into it before the football game today!”


Fall Chicken Tortilla Soup

"I made this last night for my partner and two of his male friends. It was completely gone. They loved it!”


Hamburger Skillet Supper

"Now this was good. Very Fast. I added a tablespoon of soy sauce and used mixed veggies. I just did not want to cook and this recipe helped. We both got to eat. I do believe children will love this one."


Pasta with Mushroom Garlic Sauce

“The first time I made this it was great, the second time I used a mixture of different types of mushrooms and it was still great.”


Chestnut & Bacon Risotto With Savoy Cabbage

"Superb recipe! I had to amend the amounts though, as I felt that the amount of rice was not enough to feed a family of four. No vermouth either, but white wine does the trick as well! Taste-wise, the mixture of chestnuts and cabbage against the white backdrop of rice makes it look good and taste fabulous. Certainly a top-drawer recipe!"


Baked Pork Chops & Apples

"Just made this for the first time. Best pork chops I have ever had and husband loved them too! Served them with cheddar au gratin potatoes and the meal was a hit!"


Autumn Chicken Salad

"I just made and ate this delicious salad. I did not chill it in the fridge, as all the ingredients were already chilled, plus I subbed chopped, cooked turkey for the chicken. This salad is a great way to use up the leftover cooked turkey after Thanksgiving.”

-Cindi M Bauer

Autumn Chicken With Harvest Vegetables

"Lovely flavor and attractive. Healthy recipe with a favorite assortment of vegetables. Next time I will cut the veggies in larger pieces as they were a bit overcooked but still very tasty.”


Autumn Sausage Soup

“A great recipe for a cold day! It was very tasty and a change from spicy soups — the sausage made it a one pot meal. I served it with French bread. A keeper!”

-French Tart

Autumn Chicken & Rice

“Four stars! Hearty slow-cooker meal. Used boneless skinless chicken thighs and unfiltered apple juice. Also used the seasoning packet in the rice. The apple flavor was subtle and wished it were a little more prominent but enjoyed this for dinner.”
