One thing we love during this time of year with the FALL season is our crock pots. I usually always have two out on my kitchen counter at this time of the year One makes my dinner and the other makes my dessert :).

With so many after school activities going on right now this is SUPER handy in not having to start dinner at 8 in the evening. I start my dinner while at work and as soon as I came home from work I usually start the dessert.

One of my favorite sites for crock pot recipes is the awesome crockpotladies. If you have not checked out their site, PLEASE head over there right now.
