(Image credit: Joe Lingeman/The Kitchn)

My breakfast of choice for the majority of my elementary school years was apple-cinnamon instant oatmeal. I'd pick through the variety pack my dad bought every week for my preferred flavor. These squares are based off that oatmeal, but with a more wholesome spin, thanks to real ingredients and natural sweeteners. They also happen to be even faster than those little packets, since once they are baked, it's a true grab-and-go situation.

How To Make Classic Chicken Alfredo Pasta: The Easiest, Simplest Method — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

(Image credit: Joe Lingeman/The Kitchn)

Chicken Alfredo pasta was my favorite "fancy" restaurant order as a kid — luxe sauce clinging to fettuccini topped with crispy chicken. It was about as close to macaroni and cheese and chicken fingers as a 6-year-old could get at any good Italian-American restaurant. Perhaps this is why most takeout Alfredo falls short for me — it's too entwined in my own culinary memories. Or it could just be that the rich sauce gets too cold and clumpy while waiting for delivery.

Hellbent on enjoying my childhood favorite from the comfort of my own couch, I set out to recreate the Alfredo of my memory (and I bet yours too — whether it was eaten at your family's favorite Italian-American restaurant or your local Olive Garden). We've eschewed the authentic "no cream" Alfredo for a reliable take on this classic that's just as creamy, garlic-rich, and fun to slurp up as you remember.

Despite all the fun-sized candy bars, peanut butter cups, and gummy worms eaten with abandon this time of year, I argue that we still need more chocolate. And that's not just because I am a chocolate fiend (which, if you're curious, I am) — it's because Halloween would be infinitely better with these brownies.

They are as dark and decadent as they come. They're insanely moist, rich, and chewy, speckled with chunks of melty chocolate that pool into hot puddles of your favorite chocolate as they bake.

When tangy BBQ chicken shows up in our weekly meal plan, my husband's eyes always light up with excitement. But this time — when I told him it was coming in casserole form, that it involved tender riced cauliflower, and was Paleo — his eyes got squinty in the way that only happens when he's skeptical. I, however, knew it would be a hit with him. So when he asked if there was enough for seconds after taking his first bite, I wasn't surprised.

Recipe: Make-Ahead Pumpkin French Toast Casserole — Make-Ahead Breakfast Recipes

This is how you do French toast during prime pumpkin season (aka right now!). It's a sweet, seasonal breakfast casserole for a crowd and powerful enough to win over the most ardent pumpkin spice critic. Thick cubes of buttery brioche are soaked overnight and infused with rich custard packed with warm spices and a double dose of pumpkin. Then it's dotted with a crunchy brown sugar and pecan streusel that takes it over the top. Amazing, right?
