Tomato Basil

On a cold evening, either in your dorm or at home, soup is always an option to warm the soul. With the addition of tomatoes to your diet can boost vitamin c and potassium, key elements to the diet. This is a quick and easy recipe to try that does not have many ingredients. Plus, you can add a side of grilled cheese. 

Ultimate Chicken Noodle

This light recipe is simple to make for any occasion, whether it be after a cool fall day or for an occasion. The only requirements for cooking this dish is to warm the broth on the stove and add in the ingredients listed. The ingredients are subject to change based on taste preferences. 


Acorn Squash

This sweet and savory side dish can be served in various ways. The recipe given either includes savory seasonings such as paprika, chili powder, salt, and pepper, or sweet seasonings such as softened butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Each option provides a taste of fall. 

Apple Cider Glazed Chicken

If you’re looking for a super flavorful meal, this chicken recipe will give you the satisfaction of fall. With some additives of apple cider and fresh herbs, there will be multiple flavors accumulating as it is cooked. The prep time is fairly quick allowing it to be a versatile recipe, regardless of the location of living.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These soft pumpkin cookies, with an addition of however much chocolate chips you prefer, are a perfect dessert for the fall season. The recipe is easily adapted to and can be changed based on chocolate sweetness (semi, milk, dark) and can even add walnuts.

Mug Apple Crisp

If you’re looking for a fall recipe that is easy and can be done right from your dorm room, this apple crisp recipe can be made right from the mug. Having tried this before, the ingredients are pretty simple and are cooked in a microwave, which comes out perfectly. The only thing I would mention is to use relatively hard apples (rather than soft apples). 

Fall is a great time to try new recipes since it is beginning to get much colder as the days pass by. Also cooking is a great way to relieve stress!
