Roasted Pineapple Bars

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and we're here to help you get ready. Let's begin with dessert! When using roasted pineapple in these bars, a summery treat suddenly looks in place on a Thanksgiving buffet.

Seasonal Comforts: Very Veggie Beef Barley Soup

Turn to your Instant Pot to get an all-day simmered flavor on the table in under an hour. Seared beef blends with tender barley and a bevy of fresh vegetables that's both beautiful in the bowl and hearty enough to fuel you for hours.

Seasonal Comforts: Spicy Shrimp and Corn Chowder

Take an hour and build an incredible autumn-inspired chowder from scratch, including making a special stock. The shells from shrimp and cobs from corn blend to make this a soup with incredible depth and flavor. Crown it all with spicy-sweet shrimp!

Seasonal Comforts: Spicy Asian Pork Chops with Sautéed Mushrooms

A quick, simple, and delightfully spicy sauce gives this dish its kick. If you have lovely red Korean peppers, they make the prettiest sauce, but good 'ol serranos or jalapeños will also work well. Pork chops give it a tender, juicy foundation and sautéed mushrooms give it a fitting crown.
