Comfort Food Recipes Perfect for Fall

Comfort Food Recipes Perfect for Fall

It's midterm season, it’s getting chilly and the parkas are (almost) out. When friends complain about their unfinished essays, never-ending flu symptoms, and overall dreary gray-sky mood, my go-to response has been to preach the value of self-care. The best type of self-care? Food. Ditch the textbook, turn on your favorite *cozy mood* playlist, and spend the hours you should be studying holed up in the kitchen. Here are three recipes that have been my most unexpected comfort foods this fall.

Lablabi

Lablabi is a Tunisian dish, often referred to as "chickpea and harissa stew" in the States. A garlicky, harissa flavored soup, it's zesty, spicy, and absolutely delicious. The dish is traditionally served over pieces of crusty bread, but have fun with it, there are lots of variations to try!

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Hot, spicy, sweet dark chocolate. What more could you want? Pro-tip: serve with fresh whipped cream and sprinkles of cinnamon and cayenne on top. Treat yoself!

Apple Cinnamon Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting

This is one of my favorite cakes. The cake is dense and ultra-moist with gooey apple chunks, the frosting is smoky-sweet, with an almost fudge consistency. It is so, so hard to stop eating.

Now you officially have no more excuses. Close that laptop, head to the kitchen and eat up!
