Basic Chicken Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 377
Chicken soup is the ultimate comfort food. It warms and satisfies, which is why you make it when you're feeling under the weather or chilled to the bone in winter. Our simple recipe has classic flavors and a short ingredient list—and it comes together faster than most versions (you'll have your spoon in a piping hot bowl in just over an hour). It's low-effort, too: All you have to do as the flavors meld together on the stovetop is give your soup the occasional stir.

All you need to make this hearty and delicious slow-cooker pot roast is beef chuck, onions, carrots, Worcestershire sauce, and a touch of cornstarch. It's an all-in-one meal that makes clean up a breeze. Just set it and forget it, the slow cooker does the work. You'll make this recipe again and again, it's so easy and so good.

Roast Turkey with Herb Butter

Rating: 4 stars 396
Getting a great-tasting turkey on the Thanksgiving table is easier than you might think. Here, the bird is rubbed with a flavorful mixture of butter and fresh rosemary, sage, and thyme before going into the oven. Use the roasted vegetables and turkey neck to make Rich Gravy.

Apple Crisp

Rating: 3.5 stars 1715
One of the definitive desserts of fall, apple crisp is easy and economical. Under the simple butter-sugar-flour-and-oat topping is the apple filling scented with cinnamon. Our test kitchen says baking apples, like Rome or Cortland, are the best varieties to use for apple crisp, but Empire, Gala, or Braeburn apples are also good in this recipe. Experiment with different types of apples and see which you prefer. Let the crisp cool for a few minutes before serving with a scoop of ice cream on top.

Apple-Cider Donut Cake

If you love the apple-cider donuts often sold at farmers' markets, you'll love this cake! Baked in a Bundt pan, it's essentially a giant cakey donut, made a little more wholesome with whole-wheat flour. A blend of olive oil and applesauce helps keep it moist and makes it our favorite fall dessert. This recipe appears in our cookbook, A New Way to Bake and Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes.

Beef Stew

Rating: 3 stars 2254
Two simple steps is all it takes to make this comforting, classic beef stew recipe. We skip browning the meat and instead use tomato paste and balsamic vinegar to amp up the flavor. This recipe also works well in the slow cooker if you prefer.
