Food that Brings People Together

In the Fall, the light summer salads and outdoor BBQs give way to warm comfort foods that fill your home with delicious aromas and feed your body and soul. That may seem like a tall order, but there’s nothing like a warm home cooked meal that brings together family and friends and what’s better for the soul than that?!

Speaking of bringing family and friends together, here are a few tips for hosting a Dinner Party in the fall:

  1. When planning the menu think about what produce is in season. So many delicious root vegetables, squashes and fruits are wonderful to cook with.
  2. Plan to serve some items that can be made ahead of time and utilize various methods of cooking such as crock pot, oven, stove top.
  3. Use fall foliage as centerpieces for the table.
  4. Set a simple place setting. Avoid busy patterns on the dinnerware and keep it to a 3 piece set of silverware.  
  5. Have background music playing that will help set the atmosphere.
  6. Lighting can also help add to the atmosphere too.
  7. Don’t hesitate to allow guests to bring dishes if they offer. 

Each category below contains appetizers, sides, main dishes, salads and desserts that are perfect during the autumn months. Be sure to check out the individual posts for tips and tricks that will help you make the perfect dish.
