Fall Crockpot Recipes For Busy Cooks

The days just seem to get more and more busy around the twelveOeight house in the fall, and I love every minute of it.  The leaves changing color in my neighborhood, making yummy soups and casseroles, planning out a few visits to local pumpkin patches and more pumpkins than we know what to do with.
Amidst all of the fall awesomeness I have found myself on more nights than not wondering what I will throw together for dinner (this thought strikes usually at about 7:30pm.) So I am really excited to put together a delicious group of recipes that I can make ahead, and serve with a salad and some fresh fruit for busy nights.  The grocery list is easy to compile, the meals practically cook themselves, and my house smells wonderful all day while my trusty crock pot does the work.  That I can do.  In fact, I have my favorite Minestrone simmering away in my crock pot right now (will share the recipe this week 🙂

Slow Baked Mac And Cheese

I love Mac & Cheese, I have a recipe that I created for it here that is gluten free.  But you can easily alter it back to “regular” Mac & Cheese by adding wheat noodles instead of rice noodles.

This looks delicious, and I think it would freeze very well too.  What’s better than a crock pot recipe for an easy dinner? A dinner that is already cooked and just needs to thaw out…

These slow cooker enchiladas would be so easy to have for a Friday night meal with a glass of good red wine and your favorite movie (or book!)

These crock pot recipes will be saving me a lot of time this fall, with a little planning and a few mintues putting my ingredients together, my evenings are going to be a little less hectic now.  Which of course frees up more time to craft, surf Pinterest, and enjoy my family. 

Happy cooking, hugs & blessings to you!
