Now that fall is in full swing, and the holidays aren’t far away, I thought I’d share a roundup of a few of my favorite soup and stew recipes with you in the hopes of making your meal planning–and life–a bit easier!
Since fall is all about keeping things warm and cozy, my suppers this time of year revolve around hearty and flavorful soups, stews, and chilis. I love throwing a bunch of ingredients in a pot or Dutch oven and just letting it simmer while I take care of other things. (Plus, it makes the house smell amazing while it cooks!)
All of the recipes I’m sharing here are quick and easy to put together, healthy, family-friendly, and most-importantly, delicious! Simply add a side salad and some bread, and dinner is done.
If you’re looking to make your life simpler and happier, you’re going to love these 7 warm and comforting recipes. They’re fast, they’re flavorful, and the perfect ending to a chilly day!
