Soups, stews, casseroles and pasta bakes; we just can't get enough of fall comfort foods. But here's a spin we haven't explored yet: adding some sweetness and spice to otherwise hearty and rich dishes. A dash of teriyaki sauce, a sprinkling of chile pepper or even a chopped apple can add a ton of flavor and personality to a dish that will keep your family on their toes. Try making these dishes this week to spice (and sweeten!) up dinner time:
