What better way to warm up on a day of Sunday afternoon football then with delicious rice balls? The fried snack is easier to make than you might think. Cook rice while combining pine nuts, shredded mozzarella, fontina cheese and parsley. After shaping the rice into 1 inch balls, insert the cheese mixture. Then, bread the rice balls and fry them. It’s that simple!

Make a weekday dinner fun with chicken topped with arugula pesto and an orecchiette and green bean side.  Begin by cooking the pasta and green beans and toss with parmesan cheese, olive oil, lemon zest and garnish with salt.

Next, add arugula, lemon juice, parsley, cheese, olive oil, salt, water and toasted hazelnuts into a food processor.

Smoked Pork Chops with Corn and Okra

This meal will impress your family and it only takes 15 minutes to cook. Begin by sprinkling the pork chops with Cajun seasoning and pepper. Cook to golden brown in a large skillet of vegetable oil. Pro tip: pork chops can be substituted for ham steak! Once cooked, remove pork chops to a plate while you add the onions in and cook until soft. After, add okra and corn until they are crisp and tender. Next, add the tomato, honey, water and some more Cajun seasoning and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until tomato is soft. Finally, add the chops back into the mixture and cook until tender. Then you’re done! This simple fall recipe is perfect for any occasion.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Pillow Popovers

How can we not give you fall recipes without adding pumpkin?! These pumpkin cheesecake pillow popovers take your average cheesecake and crank it up a notch! To make the popovers, take two mini muffin trays and spray with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, beat sugar and cream cheese, then add an egg, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and of course, pumpkin. Cover the bowl and chill.

Next is the dough. Take cans of crescent rolls and lay out on a floured baking sheet. After creating squares, place them into the muffin cups. Just be sure to place the dough in every other cup so there’s enough room. Spoon the cream cheese and pumpkin mixture into the dough and twist the top of the dough to securely close it. Bake for around 14 minutes, let cool and sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar. It’s great to serve with ice cream!
