Better Homes & Gardens October 2016 Recipes

Chorizo-Stuffed Squash
It's time for fall. Make the most of the season with easy autumn recipes from the pages of Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Plus, we're sharing new takes on classic paella and a must-try twist on savory oatmeal.

Pork & Butternut Paella

Roasting the squash first is the key to this autumn paella. Finish the dish with a sprinkling of chopped hazelnuts and fresh sage.  

Helga's Potato Salad

A couple things make this potato salad better than the rest: Adding the dressing when the potatoes are still warm so they soak up all the flavor and a sprinkling of crispy bacon.

Warm Indian-Spiced Acorn Squash Salad

Magic happens when you top roasted acorn squash with garam masala, mustard greens, and pomegranate seeds. 

Gesine's Plum Tart

This buttery plum tart is perfectly sweet on its own, but we like to drizzle it with honey just before serving. 

Coconut Acorn Squash & Carrot Soup

For crunch and extra flavor, top this creamy soup with fried onions, toasted squash seeds, and basil.

Ginger-Sesame Oats with Mushrooms and Charred Green Onions

This savory oatmeal bowl is just as good with quinoa, buckwheat, or barley. 

Chicken, Shrimp & Chorizo Paella

If you're new to paella, start here. This simple recipe is our riff on the classic rice, meat, and seafood dish.

Roasted Chicken with Grapes

Serve this tipsy chicken with a German wine, such as Gewurztraminer. 

Bavarian Pretzels

These classic pretzels are best served with spicy brown mustard. 

Spicy Sugared Almonds

These sugary nuts are also a little spicy, thanks to cayenne pepper and cinnamon.

Braised Cabbage with Brussels Sprouts and Squash

Say good-bye to bland, mushy cabbage. Adding an apple at the end gives this fall side a little sweetness and plenty of crunch.

Kale & Mushroom Paella

Your search for a filling and flavorful vegetarian dinner is over. 

Apple Cider Cocktail

Who knew gin and apple cider were a perfect match?

Mixed Seafood Paella

The stars of this show are a trio of fresh seafood and sweet smoky paprika. 

Squash Carpaccio with Goat Cheese and Figs

Take a break from zoodles! Try slicing your zucchini into thin ribbons -- you'll fall in love with the delicate texture and beautiful presentation.

Chorizo-Stuffed Squash

Your dinner tonight just got a whole lot spicier thanks to Anaheim chile pepper, Spanish chorizo, and poblano chiles.
