Some of you might pull out the slow cooker all year long, but if you're anything like us, you spend most of your time in the warmer months putting that grill to work. Now that the temperatures are starting to dip and the grills are getting their last hurrah, we're looking ahead to crockpot season. Is anyone else as excited as we are about this?! There's nothing like coming home to a delicious meal all hot and ready, simply waiting for you to dish up, at the end of a long hard day.

We love putting our slow cookers to the test all fall and winter long, so we've rounded up the ultimate list of comfort crockpot foods to keep your belly and your heart happy! From classics like beef and bean chili, to new favorites like mozzarella stuffed meatballs, you'll be able to cure any weekday blues just a few minutes after you get home.

From milkshakes to desserts, breakfasts to cocktails, the list below has everything you need for the rest of pumpkin spice season.

Pumpkin spice everything season is here! I don't know about you, but sometimes I need a break from all the meats and BBQ to satisfy that sweet tooth of mine. These little cakes are perfect for fall. They are packed with so much pumpkin spice, you will forget all about that PSL you were craving earlier this morning. Then you top of the moist, dense, delicious cake with cream cheese frosting and a little sprinkle of candied bacon (because we can't completely give up our meats now can we?).
I love making these cakes in the larger ramekins because they end up looking like giant frosted cupcakes! You can also make them in smaller ramekins if you don't want to be SO gluttonous. But who really wants to do that, right?
You can even make them cupcakes if you want to! Regardless, these cakes will be gone in a blink of an eye as soon as you serve them. Are you drooling yet? Time to get your bake on piggy peeps! Celebrate fall before that cold cold winter sets in. ;)

The first week of football is wrapping up and we couldn't be more excited. We are sad to see the end of summer so clearly, but all that football and tailgating amazingness in front of us is comforting our souls hardcore right about now. You know we are allllll about that tailgating food, but we also want to make sure we have the drinks part covered for y'all too. What's a tailgate party without some booze anyway? So we're bringing you these 15 fall cocktails to keep your tailgating spirits high (and extra boozy). These cocktails have all that apple and pumpkin goodness you start craving the moment September 1st rolls around, plus some extra odds and ends cocktails to give you a break once you start wearing yourself on everything apple and pumpkin. One of our favorite manly drinks below (pictured above) is Smoked Bourbon with Candied Bacon. Our smokers are running well into fall, low and slow, so we take advantage of that smoke by bottling it up with some bourbon. Top it with a slice of candied bacon and all the dudes out there basically melt as soon as they see it. It's also the perfect consolation prize if someone's team loses. As long as you give them one of these, you can mock them all you want.
