Fall Sheet Pan Dinner

Fall Sheet Pan Dinner

I’ve been on a real kick with the sheet pan and crockpot dinners lately. I love how simple both cooking methods are! For the crockpot, two weeks ago I shared a Loaded Baked Potato Soup that I have made countless times and this week it’s all about the sheet pan dinner. I wanted to incorporate some of my favorite fall vegetables into a dinner a few weeks ago and came up with this delicious and healthy mix of fall flavors for the ultimate fall sheet pan dinner.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I have shared my love for crockpot dishes before, but I think we have a new favorite in our house. Now that it is fall, I have been trying to do crockpot dinners at least twice a week. Not only do I love the ease of these recipes, but there is no beating a quick and warm dinner on a cold fall evening. I made this recipe a few weeks ago and have made it twice since. I am officially addicted! After making it for the third time, I think I have finally mastered the combination of ingredients to create the most delicious Loaded Baked Potato Soup!

Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo

Healthy and quick weeknight dinners are always on my mind, but especially at the start of fall. As I mentioned with last week’s Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas, I think it’s because I’m preparing for dinner without a grill in the colder months which forces me to come up with quick dinners indoors. This Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo is a spin on the traditional Fettuccine Alfredo but with a fraction of the calories. A relatively guilt-free dinner, you will find yourself reaching for seconds without feeling bad about it!

Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Post-Labor Day and the unofficial welcoming of fall has arrived. Fall is my favorite season for many reasons but two of the top can be broken down into two categories: food and fashion. Imagine that? As much as I love grilling during the summer, I am looking forward to dinners in the crockpot and oven. When it comes to baking dinner in the oven, I always try to come up with recipes that have quick bake times or are at least easy to put together. If they are quick to put together and have a longer bake time, at least you can accomplish tasks while dinner bakes. I have shared our love for Mexican food with you before but these sheet pan chicken fajitas take quick weeknight dinners to a whole new level.

Weeknight Summer Dinner with al fresco

As summer is quickly coming to an end, one of the things I will miss most about the warmer temperatures is quick weeknight dinners on the grill. The grill has become our go-to the past few months. You can’t beat how much of a time saver it is! Once a week, we reach for one of our favorite summer meals on the grill, al fresco chicken sausage. I always love coming up with new ways to serve this “better for you” sausage, but this sweet Italian style has become our favorite. Today, I am sharing the perfect quick weeknight summer dinner with al fresco.
