VOTE FOR WHAT I SHOULD COOK! OCTOBER EDITION!

Welcome back to voting for what I should cook the October edition.  September was such a hit and so much fun to see the votes and cook something that I may not have chosen for myself and would have been missing out.  Due to the huge success I have decided to make this a monthly thing!  So come on and vote for what I should make next weekend for dinner and dessert.  One of the entrees from last month has made it over to become an option again for this month as well as a few desserts that didn't quite make it for the win!  Come on and vote and enter any suggestions for things that you would like to see for next month's voting challenge.  Thank you so much for your participation because without your votes, there would be nothing chosen for me to cook!

In case you want to see the voting from last month check out : September's Options

And to check out the winning dishes that I made go to: Burgundy Pork & Apple Raz Crumble

MAIN DISH

Option A:  Slow Cooker Chicken Chili
I don't use my slow cooker nearly as much as I should, and am always looking for great new recipe inspiration.  I love messing with Chili and this looks like a great recipe to try.

Original Recipe:
slow-cooker-chicken-chili













Option B: Creamy Baked Pumpkin Risotto
It's that time of year again.  Fall, comfort food, pumpkin everything.  And this recipe looks interesting and delicious!



 Original Recipe:
Creamy Baked Pumpkin Risotto












Option C: Chicken and Dumplings
 Another delicious comfort food, I used to sneak as many of the dumplings as I could and eat them all when I was little haha.  As an adult I always add extra when I cook it for myself, but I haven't made it in many years, so it would be great to revisit it.






 Original Recipe:
Chicken & Dumplings












Option D: Caramel Apple Pork Chops
 You can't have fall without caramel apple, so what better to add than pork?  Pork is always great for adding anything sweet to it, it really complements the sweet flavors.




 Original Recipe:
Caramel Apple Pork










DESSERTS

Option 1: Caramelized Banana Pudding
One of my all-time favorite desserts is banana pudding, this looks like a delicious twist to an old favorite!




Original Recipe:














Option 2: Rice Pudding with Cherries
Rice Pudding AND Cherries, and there is also WHITE chocolate, I am salivating just thinking about it!




Original Recipe:










Option 3: Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake 

I love fall for all of the delicious Pumpkin recipes and I also love cheesecake.  What better than cheesecake and pumpkin all in one bite?





Original Recipe:
 Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake









Option 4: Carrot Layer Cake

Carrot cake used to seem like such a weird concept to me when I was younger, but as I have grown older I have learned to love the flavor sensation in my mouth as well as the amazing cream cheese frosting, however I have never attempted to make a carrot cake myself, so this would be my first try.





Original Recipe:
Carrot Layer Cake
