Slow-Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

This version has added vegetables and makes use of inexpensive leg pieces, which stew to tender perfection in the slow-cooker. Serving the flavorful sauce over brown rice stretches the meat, and makes use of every drop of chickeny goodness.

Roasted Cauliflower with Potatoes and Feta

A great side for a grilled chicken breast or tempeh steak, these baked veggies with feta can also be a main dish, served over orzo pasta, brown rice or polenta.

Italian Sausage with Fall Veggies

This is an easy and filling fall dish, and the ingredients are very flexible. Substitute your favorite root vegetables for the parsnip and sweet potato, or use any type of link sausage.

Spicy Korean Pork Stir Fry

Looking for flavor without the heat? Simply use half or none of the chili sauce in the mixture, and offer a dish of hot sauce on the side so your guests can add spice to their liking.

Blackberry Ricotta Pizza

In late summer, fresh blackberries make for a unique and tasty pizza topping. 

Nectarine Steak Salad

This is a great dish to make with a leftover grilled steak; just take it out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature while you prepare the salad. Slice the meat just before serving. Pair with a light red wine like a Pinot Noir or a Beaujolais for a festive late-summer supper.

Crispy Gluten-Free Baked Chicken

Try serving this crispy chicken on top of a green salad for a crunchy, fresh, tasty meal.

Baby Back Ribs with Maple Mustard Glaze

The simplest way to get perfectly cooked fall-off-the-bone ribs is to bake them in a low oven, then pop them on the grill for a final kiss of smoke and fire. If you want to skip the grill, just drizzle baked ribs with sauce, place under a hot broiler for a few seconds and serve with corn on the cob, potato salad or any other ’cue favorite side. 

Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

A lot of pizza dough is fussy, crumbly, and tricky to roll out, but this one is soft and stretchy and can be made in a fairly short amount of time. And bonus, the kids will love to help make it! 

Vegetarian Paella

 There are a lot of layers of flavor in paella, so keep it simple with the side dishes. A tapas-style selection of olives, chewy bread and Spanish cheeses along with a crisp green salad dressed in a vinegar or lemon vinaigrette work well.
