At the start of each month, we'll be looking back at the most popular recipes from the previous one, stopping just short of ten and giving you a helpful tip, not recipe, or drink instead.

You know the scariest thing about October? How quickly it just disappeared. And now we’re in Thanksgiving Month, er, November, we’ve got pies, potatoes, and big, beautiful birds top of mind (20 more days, y’all!).

But, before you start that stuffing, let’s take a moment to look at all the wonderful recipes you loved the most in October. Spoiler: Fuss-free weeknight mains trumped candy and sweets! Spooky!

And, as usual, we've also included a "half": not quite a full recipe, but a very useful trick, tip, or cocktail that you couldn't get enough of. Scroll down to check it out.

Slow-Cooker Beef Stroganoff With Mushrooms

And as a special treat, our "half" recipe is a cocktail from Director of Partner Content Cory Baldwin. She discovered this glorious combo of whiskey and boiled cider years and years ago from a colleague, and has been making it every fall since. Save us a glass, Cory!
