While I know it may not feel like Fall everywhere, it’s starting to cool down (at least at night) here in San Diego, so it’s time to start cooking my favorite cold weather dinner dishes. Here are a list of my favorites. Please share yours with me in the comments!
Roasted Tomato Soup – One of my favorite comfort food dishes! This recipe doesn’t take long at all and pairs oh so well with a delicious grilled cheese sandwich!
Slow Cooker Turkey Chili – What goes better with cold weather than chili?!?!? While I normally like “chop and dump” slow cooker dishes, this one takes a little bit of time up front, but the final product is worth it.
Whole Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary – OMG, I love roasting whole chickens. Not only is it super easy and makes your house smell amazing, but you can do so many things with the leftovers. YUM.
Broccoli Cheddar Soup – I still remember making cream of broccoli soup as a kid. It was one of my favorites back then, but isn’t something I’d thought to make in my own kitchen as an adult. I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago and it was sooooooo tasty. It totally brought me back to my kid days and my kid loved it, so it’s a win all around!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup – This is another easy slow cooker dish that is in our cold weather rotation. Tasty, tasty!
Mini Chicken Meatball Soup – I made this at least 2-3 times a month last year. It’s so hearty and makes a ton of leftovers.
One-Pot Chicken and Dumplings – Who doesn’t love chicken and dumplings? This was the first chicken and dumplings recipe I’ve ever made and I haven’t looked for another one since. It’s that good!
Chicken and Vegetable Pot Pie – To me, chicken pot pie screams winter. I love the flaky, buttery crust in chicken pot pie and could eat it everyday.
Chickpea Pasta Soup – I can’t even tell you how many times I made this last winter. It’s one of my favorites and I’m so excited to start making it again. Who doesn’t love pasta and lots of parm in their soup?
Cock-a-Leekie Pie – Yes, silly name, but sooooo good. This is similar to chicken pot pie in that it has a bottom and top crust, but the filling is really unique and has incredible flavor. One thing I like most about this dish is that I can make the filling during nap time and just put it together about an hour before we want to eat.
