Fall is the time of football parties, hot cider, and fall leaves. It is also time for your favorite fall munchies. Time to fire up the grill, wash the crockpot, and get out the party platters for these favorite fall comfort foods. Here are some handy recipes sure to please.

Crock Pot Chili

Everyone has their favorite chili recipe and here is mine. It is made up of lean ground beef, garlic minced, salt, pepper, and chili powder. In a skillet, you saute it all together until the beef is browned. Then you drain. After, put the mixture into a crock pot and add these ingredients: tomato sauce, red kidney beans pre-cooked, tomato paste, salt, cocoa powder, sugar, and chiles if you like a spice. Once you are done, let this cook clow for a few hours and top it off with shredded cheese and sour cream. For a final touch, serve to your family and guests with corn/tortilla chips or crackers. No one will be disappointed here!

The Best Apple Cobbler

If you want the best apple cobbler recipe, look no further. Peel tart apples such as Granny Smith and place them in a buttered Pyrex glass dish. Sprinkle with raisins, chopped walnuts, and caramel or toffee bits. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and eggs together until they have a gritty texture. Sprinkle over apples. Pour melted real butter over everything. Bake at 350 F for about 30 min. Serve with pecan ice cream. This is something everyone will love!

Spicy Apple Cider

When you think of the colder fall and winter months, you think sipping on hot apple cider – yum! All you need is cold pressed apple cider, ginger juice, cloves, fresh lemon juice, mint springs, and cinnamon sticks. In a crock pot on the low setting, add the apple cider, a small amount of ginger juice, lemon juice and cloves. Pour when warmed into glass mugs, adding the cinnamon and mint as a garnish. This drink will be a crowd pleaser!

Southern Firecracker Cornbread

Nothing soothes the taste buds like some goold old fashion cornbread. For this delicious meal you will need the following ingredients: unsalted butter, stone ground cornmeal, bread flour, creamed corn, chopped green onion, minced red pepper, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, and buttermilk. You will need to preheat the oven to 425 F. In a large mixing bowl, fold together cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, buttermilk, creamed corn, and butter. Fold in onion and red pepper. Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture slowly, folding it together until the cornbread mixture is wet and lumpy. Pour into lightly buttered cast iron skillet and cook for 20-25 min. Cornbread is always a winner!

Planning a big event is a lot of hard work. You may want to consider hiring a meal delivery service with all your favorite fall comfort foods made by a Foodini’s personal chef in New Jersey.
