9 Fall-Inspired Family Recipes

The temperatures are dropping, the days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing and your belly is looking for some warming comfort food. For me, once the calendar turns to September 1, it's perfectly OK to indulge in all of your cravings for pumpkin, apples, squash, sweet potatoes and more, to keep you warm from the inside out. Now is the time to whip up family favorites like chili, soup and slow cooker recipes to take the chill out of the autumn days.

With the kids back to school and activities happening almost every night, you need quick, nutritious options. These nine fall-inspired recipes are simple to put together. Some can be made ahead of time (load up the freezer!), entirely made in the slow cooker and the whole family will love them. That means less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying one of the best seasons of the year.
