Fall has arrived in the Smoky Mountains, and with it comes beautiful fall colors, cool walks on hauntingly beautiful trails, and of course, it's time for the best fall dishes of 2020. This week we have some of our favorite dishes and ideas that everyone in the family will love. Whether you are looking to cook at home or prepare a meal while vacationing in one of our luxury cabins, you'll find something for everyone in this week's blog. 

Homemade mac and cheese

Want a cheesy and delicious meal the kids will devour on a cool fall evening? This wonderfully simple mac and cheese is one of those staple dishes that everyone should have ready to go. We know the family will love it. 

Butternut squash soup

On a brisk fall day, there’s nothing more soothing than chopping and simmering vegetables over a warm stove. As the day goes on the kitchen fills with the earthy scent of sage, rosemary, and butternut squash, and when you’re finished, steaming bowls of butternut squash soup.


A  baked pasta dish – Pastitsio hails from Greece and features a rich bolognese sauce made with ground lamb which is infused with Greek spices and herbs. It's perfect for entertaining and can be made ahead! Ridiculously decadent and delicious and sure to be a family favorite. This is a great recipe to make in one of our well-appointed kitchens in your luxury Smoky Mountain cabin. 

Cranberry Pot Roast

This is a simple festive recipe loaded with flavor. Fall and cranberries are just made for each other. If you love beef roast baked to perfection, then you will love this simple recipe. Turkey may be on the back burner this Thanksgiving with this delicious recipe in your arsenal. 

Many-Veggie Vegetable Soup

If you love a hearty vegetable soup than look no further than this wonderfully simple vegetable soup recipe. Easy to make, it's loaded with vitamins and perfect to go along with a nice crusty piece of sourdough bread. 

Easy Vegetarian Chili

On cool fall nights, all I want to do is curl up on the couch with a bowl of chili and a great movie or book. Luckily for you this recipe is super easy to make! Once you start you are only thirty minutes away from a hearty bowl of chili. 

Simple Pumpkin Bread

If you love pumpkin (and who doesn't) this recipe is not only delicious, but also very easy to make. Not only does this bread feature the savory pumpkin flavor we all look for in the fall, but also begs to be paired with a hearty bowl of soup. Soup, fall and pumpkin bread...now that is a winning combination!

Coconut Curry

This quick curry is everything I want on a fall weeknight. It cooks up in 30 minutes, it’s chock-full of veggies, and fragrant spices like turmeric, ginger, and cardamom fill it with rich flavor. Serve with rice, and enjoy!

Butternut stuffed shells

Squash and pasta is a combination I think we can all agree are perfect for fall. This dish is not only easy to make, but filling and full of healthy ingredients that make it guilt free. 

Homemade pizza

Forget Dominos or frozen pizza. With this simple recipe you'll be making pizza dough like a pro. Think of it as creating a canvas ready for whatever toppings you like.
