We are currently experiencing summer temperatures along much of the East Coast. But fall has officially arrived, and pumpkin spice is lingering in the air. What does one eat when it’s 90 degrees F in late September? We’re ready for braising, slow cooking, and stews, but the weather cues us to head back to the grill.
Here are a few recipes that work any time of the year, and will make the transition from summer to fall a tasty time. These six recipes will work in any season, but we picked them for the transition from summer to fall. Try one on an evening that still holds enough light for al fresco dining, or enjoy a cozy meal when an autumn breeze chills the night.
Rich, creamy, and ready in less than 20 minutes? Yes! This easy carbonara is your go-to meal when you want comfort food and you want it now. Whatever the weather, pasta is always welcome. Smoky duck bacon makes this satisfying dish extra-special.
Our organic exotic mushrooms, creamy Gouda, and fresh herbs are packed into a black truffle butter short crust in this easy quiche recipe. Make this a day ahead for a quick brunch or supper. Serve the French way: alongside salad greens with a bright vinaigrette. Serve cold on a hot night.
Not as heavy as steak, not as light as chicken, here’s a simple veal dish that comes together quickly and is packed with flavor – perfect for weeknight dinner. Fines herbes and lemon zest keep the creamy pan-sauce fresh and light.
