Easy & Sinful Recipes for Bulky Sweater Season

Easy & Sinful Recipes for Bulky Sweater Season

The fall season has arrived and along with it comes all the sinful (and delicious) cool-weather recipes popping up on Pinterest, Facebook, and pretty much all over the internet. Recipes for game days, tailgating, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas… the list of occasions goes on! This time of year it’s all about celebrating good times with friends and family… and FOOD! Now of course these recipes are not for every day, but for those special days when you just want to wow a crowd, or want to spend a nice quiet evening (after the kids go down) with a gigantic loaf of cheesy garlic bread and Netflix streaming. And who doesn’t need that once in a while??

So I’ve compiled a list of recipes that will probably make you start salivating instantly. You might want to go get a snack before you read these! I don’t have the time or patience to deal with a recipe that takes longer than about 30 minutes to prep, involves more than 5 – 7 ingredients, and that has too many expensive ingredients. I like ’em cheap, fast, and easy (like my men! LOL) so the majority of these recipes follow those rules.
