Wine Suggestion:

Enjoy with an Italian red like Chianti Classico or Barbera.

--Christine L., submitter

"This is the best recipe I have found on this site ... period. Takes some time to prepare, but well worth the effort. It's a crowd-pleaser and a restaurant quality recipe. Highest recommendation!"

Wow, all red meat. How disappointing - I was hoping for a little variation on the word hearty.

Totally agree with Katie. And I feel this kinda missed the point of "fall" recipes. Not a single recipe included seasonal fall produce!

I actually like this list of meals. When I think of fall, I definitely think of many of these 'comfort foods'. I can't wait to get started on cooking them. :)

Really, this was a little disappointing. Where's the pumpkin, the squash? ANYTHING with cinnamon or nutmeg? Corn? All beef? Where's the variety?

Good recipes, but WINTER recipes. No pumpkin, no squash, no fall veggies=NOT FALL RECIPES

i agree where is the "fall" in these except maybe the chili recipe. by the way i made that recipe awhile back....awesome chili

Katie, you do know pork isn't read meat... right... ;-) Pork, the other white meat... and these are comfort foods, and require an oven, or some heat for a long time, which more people do in the fall because it's colder outside.
