Cherry-Nut Cobbler

Midwest Living

Since this slow cooker recipe calls for canned and frozen fruit, you can mix up this cozy dessert any time of year. Don't be intimidated by the dumpling topping it starts with packaged muffin mix, so it's quick and easy.

Greek-Style Mac 'n' Cheese

Better Homes and Gardens

Piquant kalamata olives, rich, tangy feta cheese, and oregano give this super-creamy macaroni and cheese just enough Greek flavor to take it out of the ordinary. Feta cheese, because it is cured and stored in brine, is sometimes called a "pickled cheese."

Creamy and Comforting Corn Chowder

Better Homes and Gardens

Consider this rich and creamy corn chowder for toting to tailgate parties -- it's a real warmer-upper! Cut leek lengthwise and rinse well before chopping, because leeks tend to harbor field dirt and sand between their many layers.

Spiced Orange Mocha

Better Homes and Gardens

Enjoy this mellow coffee simmered with spices, chocolate and an orange.

Mini Meat Loaves with Green Beans

Better Homes and Gardens

This recipe offers a twist to the classic recipe by dividing the batch into individual servings. Green beans serve as the perfect side dish.

Classic Pot Roast
