11 Savory Pies and Tarts You Can Eat for Dinner

Believe it or not, some of us prefer savory over sweet, salt over sugar, and cheese over dessert. But that doesn't mean we don't *love* a flaky and buttery pie crust! Thanks to these savory, golden-baked pies, we don't have to miss out. From juicy tomatoes to creamy chicken, these crusty goods were made for that not-so-sweet tooth.

Beet, Honey, and Pine Nut Tart: The use of phyllo pastry is reason enough to dig into this tart. The addition of earthy beet root, sweet honey, and pine nuts makes it completely irresistible. (via Garlic Matters)

Ratatouille Pot Pies With Parmesan Buttermilk Biscuits: Why make pie crust when you can top your veggies off with a buttery biscuit? Break through it to find a healthy spiral of tomatoes, squash, zucchini, and eggplant. (via Rhubarb and Cod)

Weeknight-Worthy Chicken Pot Pie: When we think "chicken pot pie," we think Sunday dinner — but this recipe makes things simple and quick enough to bring one of our fave comfort foods to the dinner table on any given weeknight. (via Fresh Fit Kitchen)

Polenta Cake With Mushrooms and Garlic Lemon Oil: Polenta acts as a crust for this mouthwatering vegan recipe that incorporates a white bean-based sauce, meat-y mushrooms, and a garlicky lemon oil. (via Wild Growth)

Spinach, Artichoke, and Blue Cheese Galette: Forget about spinach and artichoke dip, because this golden galette filled with spinach, artichoke hearts, mozzarella, blue cheese, and walnuts is even better. (via A Bond Girl's Food Diary)

Mini Tomato and Chevin Tarts: These puff pastry tarts carry out the essence of Margherita pizza with basil pesto, tomatoes, soft chevin cheese, and a drizzle of tangy balsamic. (via Cupcakes and Couscous)

Grain-Free Seafood Pot Pie: Chicken pot pie needs to take a back seat; this gem is a pescetarian's dream, with a hearty and silky mixture of scallops, shrimp, and crab. (via Lila Ruth Grain Free)

Curried Vegetable Galette: Curry-seasoned carrots, beets, and cauliflower are packed into a crumbly crust with crumbled cheese, and it's heaven on a plate. (via The Seasoned Vegetable)

Chili Cornbread Pie Casserole: A tender cornbread crust tops a hearty chili including smokey chipotle chilies, crunchy walnuts, and a medley of beans for a casserole worth curling up with. (via Catching Seeds)

Heirloom Tomato Galette With Honey and Goat Cheese: Do not mistake this for a pizza. This recipe brings tomatoes to a crust in a whole new way with tangy goat cheese and honey, and it's ah-mazing. (via Coffee and Crayons)

Feta and Herb Phyllo Tart: An herbaceous filling made up of salty cheese, parsley, tarragon, and mint is wrapped in a crispy phyllo for a tart that can act as breakfast, lunch, AND dinner. Sign us up. (via New York Times)

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
