Fall is my favorite season! It’s not quite yet fall weather here in Tennessee but I know it’s right around the corner.
I have been trying to avoid using the oven since ours is gas and it heats up the whole house, although the warmth has been feeling nicer as fall is approaching.
Using the crock-pot is a great way to avert the heat… PLUS, it’s easy!
Dump ingredients, turn on and walk away. Well, it’s mostly that easy. Most recipes like chili or stew are that easy but this one needs some attention here and there.
My daughter loves to help me cook, whether it’s cleaning the produce, cutting up veggies or adding things to the pot, crock-pot in this instance. I try my best to teach her what a good homemaker is because one day she might be one. I am still a work in progress and fail miserably at times but I hope I am instilling in her a love for God, how to love her husband, be a mother and how to keep a home, among other things.
She even helped me make this recipe and take pictures with me after.

It’s perfect for fall, especially if you can go apple picking to get the apples. One of my other fall favorites are these Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins–everything’s better with pumpkin or apples in fall!
What’s your favorite fall treat? Have you had an apple crumble yet this fall?
