Some suggestions: fall flavors like apples, raisins and wild rice and mouthwatering spices from sage to garlic to oregano.

One Pan Autumn Chicken

Chicken? Bacon? Simply scrumptious roasted veggies? Count us in for this delectable dinner recipe that'll have the whole family begging you to compete on MasterChef. If using the oven or cooking proteins is new to you, ask an experienced adult to help—who knows, you may even learn the secret to that mysterious Thanksgiving dinner recipe. 

Autumn Rice Pilaf 

When you're in need of an easy recipe, don't skimp on the flavor. Instead, throw last night's leftover rice in a pan with *everything* in the fridge and pantry—onions, sunflower seeds, carrots, cranberries, mushrooms and anything else you can think of. Spice away (be sure to add cinnamon for that oh-so-autumn vibe) and dinner is served. 

Sweet Potato Pie 

Because it wouldn't be a meal without dessert. End the night on a bold (and fabulous) note with this go-to fall treat. Pro tip? Sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice, add a dollop of whipped cream and be sure to save some leftovers for tomorrow!
