My favorite fall recipes

As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, certain foods give comfort. There are many foods that I like to have during the fall, but my two favorites are chicken stew and apple pie. 

Any type of stew or soup is good to have during the fall but I like chicken stew the best. Potatoes, carrots, chicken, corn and peas; what else could you ask for in the perfect dish? Recently, my mom and I made this dish together so she could teach me to cook. An easy recipe like this doesn’t take hours like your regular beef stew would. 

Apple pie is something my grandma would normally make when my parents and I go over to her house for dinner. This time, my mom and I decided to make it and see how it would turn out. At first we thought it wasn’t going to turn out correctly because it was bubbling all over the dish. In the end though, it turned out so good and I would definitely make that myself again. Adding a little bit of whipped cream is the perfect element to top this pie off with.
