5 Quick and Easy Cozy Fall Dinners

September 12, 2014

The cool weather of fall is a great time to love cooking. Finally, we can get back into the kitchen and begin making those warm, comforting meals that our family craves. We have gathered some awesome comfort foods that are all quick and easy, and are family friendly for parents and kids. 

These recipes are also good basics to perfect, so you can change them up as you want. I love making a recipe my own by taking the technique I learn and using that new technique to create a new recipe. It's as if a new cook is just showing me how to improve my own cooking. 

King Ranch Bubble Up

From Plain Chicken 

Bubble up is a great name for this type of quick and easy recipe. Take your favorite canned biscuit and cut them up to drop onto a rich layer of flavors. Once you master this recipe for King Ranch, try using the same technique and tweak this family friendly recipe your own way. I'll let you in on a little secret. Using the *biscuits on top* style, is a tasty way to use up leftovers you may have as well. So yummy!

Enjoy the flavor, without the work!
