30 Comfort Food Recipes for When It Gets Crisp and Cool Out

I have this theory that there’s nothing some hearty comfort food can’t fix. Forgot your subway card and had to walk a mile home in the snow? There’s a warm, creamy pasta bake for that. Ran into your ex at the grocery store while looking *unwell* after a night out? There’s a cheesy homemade pizza for that. Feeling low because the sun now sets at 6 p.m. and your yearly existential crisis has set in? There’s a chicken and rice casserole for that.

While I’m wildly excited about knit sweaters, Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, and buying all the fall candles the world has to offer, I’m even more excited to indulge in all the comfort foods that bring me so much joy. Whether you’re looking to warm up on a crisp fall evening, forget a subpar day at work, or reward yourself for walking home instead of taking public transportation, there is a comfort meal for you.
