Three Easy Crock Pot Meals

August is drawing to a close and fall is quickly approaching which means it's time to break out our scarves, boots, sweaters...oh and our crock-pots! Nothing says fall like a wonderful meal slow cooking all day and filling your home with wonderful scents.  Also, it doesn't hurt that crock pot meals are easy, and this lady is definitely not turning down an opportunity to save time.

So, I've put together (with the help of pinterest) three great crock-pot recipes that scream fall. Click on the title to see the full recipe. I hope you enjoy!

  • Slow cooked macaroni and cheese 

  • Slow Cooked Macaroni and Cheese...of course this is my first pick! I LOVE macaroni and cheese...its one of my favorite food groups, (closely followed by cheese cake). This meal would go great with a side of peas or maybe a Caesar salad!?
Crock Pot Baked Potato Soup
  • Baked Potato Soup...It's like going to Panera but better because you don't actually have to leave your house! Doesn't this soup look amazing! Pair it with some french bread for dipping and you've got yourself a great meal.

Fall/Winter crock pot meals

  • Chicken and Dumplings...Can't you imagine eating this on a blustery day? Yum! I would pair it with some garlic cheese bread and call it a day. My favorite part about this recipe is that you throw everything in and come back six hours later :)

So what is your favorite crock-pot meal? What's your favorite thing about fall?


  1. Yum! Comfort food from the crock pot! Will have to try the mac and cheese for my little man. Kathy Penney @ Pinner Takes All.com
