Have The Coziest Season Ever!
While each of the four seasons has their own charm, Fall is one of the best seasons!
The explosive color of the leaves alone, before they die and drop to the ground, makes autumn far superior to the rest.
The weather can be chilly, unpredictable, and lovely! The trees look different every single day. The food is warm and comforting. The nights are cool enough to snuggle up under a blanket in front of the fireplace. It’s glorious!
We’ve put together this list of meals, drinks, and home decor to help you have a Cozy autumn for the rest of this season (before you know it, the Christmas trees will be up).
***** HOME DECOR *****
Fun Ways To Get Cozy:
-Add Throw Blankets
Find some nice, quality throw blankets that coordinate with your living area and bedroom. A nice throw blanket on the living room couch encourages guests to make themselves right at home. Keeping a throw on your bed can give it a nice decorative touch. You can even pick out your most stylish throws and find a nice woven basket or blanket ladder to put them on display that invites your guests to grab a blanket and stay a while!
-Accentuate The Fireplace
If your house has a fireplace, highlight it by decorating the mantle area with things like vases, candles or other decorative pieces. However, don’t try too hard to follow a set decorative plan for your mantle. Finding pieces that work with your style and coordinate with the room will help give your space some personality. Also, putting one big focal piece, such as a mirror or painting, in the area above the fireplace will help draw the eye and pull the room together
-Let There Be (Candle) Light
Having plenty of candles around your home gives it a sense of warmth. Put a couple candles in each room and people will feel a sense of comfort no matter where they are in your home. Plus, your home will smell great, too!
Hanging artwork and mirrors are the best way to decorate any home. In order to make home cozy we aim to avoid blank walls. Artwork not only brings personality to the room but it also insulates walls. It reduces the echo in the house where the sound is bouncing off the walls.
Even though blank walls can absolutely be a design choice. You may decide to hang one single piece of artwork on a statement blank wall. However, it should be an intentional choice, relflecting you and your style.
There are a variety of options for hanging on the wall:
DIY abstract art; paintings and artwork; prints; mirrors; textile wall hangings; family photographs; kids' artwork and more!
Artwork and paintings can get expensive. However, there are a lot of affordable print options that you can get online if original artwork is not for you. With so many ideas circling the internet you can absolutely DIY artwork and frame it.

Braised Brisket Sandwiches
Braised brisket is a Jewish holiday staple and Rebecca Firkser upped the ante so that it would turn into an even better sandwich (not something that’s dry and tastes, well, like leftovers). You can thank pomegranate juice, tomato sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, and an assortment of dried spices for the punchy flavor.

Pimiento Cheeseburgers with Bacon Jam
"This is like a bacon cheeseburger that went to heaven," says chef Edward Lee, of Whiskey Dry in Louisville. The pimiento cheese and sweet bacon jam both melt into one dreamy, messy bite — this is not a burger for the faint of heart (quite literally).

Stuffed Peppers With Lamb, Orzo & Halloumi
There are millions of recipes for stuffed peppers on the internet right now. Some call for the peppers to be blanched in advance or stuffed raw and cooked longer—either way, both techniques result in peppers that taste steamed rather than roasted. I much prefer to roast the peppers to soften, then stuff and roast them again. The first round in the oven guarantees some sweetness and caramelization. Then the second round ensures a pepper that is tender but not falling apart.
Peel every thin, flaky layer of these buttery biscuits and watch as steam escapes. Add a smear of butter and jam for an easy-to-pair side dish.
Brown Sugar–Brined Pork Chops With Hot & Sour Peppers
“In this recipe, pork chops get the brown sugar treatment (malty! molasses-y!), which helps them caramelize in the pan, creating a deep, dark, lacquered crust,” writes Food Editor Emma Laperruque.
Mashed potatoes, ground beef or lamb, and one giant casserole dish equal the makings of one perfect comfort food recipe.
Cast-Iron Skillet Cornbread
There are a few things that make this classic cornbread recipe better than ever. For starters, it requires baking the bread in a cast-iron skillet, which makes it extra crispy and golden brown on the outside. But it’s also a moister-than-ever cornbread, thanks to buttermilk or kefir and a sweeter-than-ever cornbread, thanks to a little bit of maple syrup instead of the usual sugar.
Tater Tots & Cheese Sauce
Tater tots have always been a kid-friendly side dish favorite. But they will jump for joy when you tell them that not only are you serving them for dinner tonight, but they’ll be covered in an ooey-gooey cheese sauce too.
***** DRINKS *****
