Taurus' are known for their luxurious tastes, but that doesn't mean you're too good for comfort foods. In fact, your earthy nature makes you a lover of going slow and taking it easy. And as a sign who enjoys routine and stability, you're a bit of a homebody who might like a recipe that takes all day to prepare. So, if you're looking for a sweet and savory dish to celebrate the cooler temperatures, a crockpot-ready pumpkin soup should do the trick. This versatile dish can be served hot or cold, with croutons or in a bread bowl. Not to mention, it's freezer-friendly, so you can make it in bulk to last you through the winter.

You're used to doing things your own way, Aquarius, and other people's opinions never slow you down or stop your rebellious streak.

You'll still get all the cheesy goodness you'd expect with lasagna but with a festive spin that will get people talking.

Pisces: Pumpkin Pie

That's why, for you, pumpkin pie is the perfect sweet treat to enjoy during the colder fall months.
