One of my favourite things about the colder months has to be making and then tucking into some delicious comfort food. Autumn always seems like the perfect time for casseroles, stews, and pies, packing them full of nourishing vegetables. My slow cooker works overtime this time of year. I’m always trawling Pinterest drooling over the tempting seasonal dishes and pinning them to my comfort food board.

I thought I would share some ideas and links to family favourite comfort food dishes. The kind of meals that fill your belly and stick to your ribs. I’ve also included some Autumn deserts too.

  1. Yum yum yum, I make all these during the winter apart from fish pie, I can’t stand fish and we like peach crumble in our house instead of apple with lots of hot custard #tuesdaytreasures
