Easy Fall Recipes

With school starting up soon (or already for some!) and fall just around the corner (as much as it pains me to think about) I wanted to do a roundup of some easy fall recipes that are hopefully simple to incorporate into your school year routine. I had a lot of recipes to choose from so I chose to focus on recipes that had easy ingredients, not too expensive, not too many steps and would please most of our household with 4 teenagers that are sometimes picky. All recipes and photos are being shared with the permission of the original creators.
