Favorite Recipes for Fall?

What are some of your favorites for fall?  I'm going to start using the crock pot more often in order to avoid dinnertime disasters 3 nights out of the week (TKD is interfering with my ability to make dinner). 

Some of my favorites are crock pot chicken chili, which doesn't really have a recipe.  It varies based on what I have in the pantry, but it's usually chicken, fajita seasoning, great northern beans, Rotel, corn, and whatever else seems to make sense.  I also love pumpkin cheesecake.  I try to only make it once for big family parties since I'd eat the entire thing if I made one just for us.

Crock pot stuff is good. I need to use mine more... I was supposed to do pork in there today but forgot. Pumpkin rolls are my favorite fall dessert..chili, both regular and white chicken... roast... I'm ready to start using my oven again!

I'm so excited for cool-weather cooking!  My mum was able to find a lid that fits my slow cooker (I broke the last one) so I used it for the first time in ages last night to make sopa azteca.  I love making roasts and the things that go with them.  This year I want to try making Yorkshire puddings.  I love meat pies, too, but The Man isn't so keen on those.

Butternut squash soup in the crock pot or thermal cooker Beef stew served in a roasted pumpkin Soups! Au gratin potatoes and ham Pumpkin muffins Pumpkin cake Pumpkin pancakes Pear carmel cobbler Fruit leathers I love to cook year round. But I am an extremist due to kid's allergies, I grind all my own grains for flours. I make almond milk for my girls. Everything is made from scratch due to corn, soy, dairy, wheat and latex allergies

How do you make the fruit leathers? Those sound so good and I refuse to buy fruit snacks. Sounds like you make a lot of pumpkin stuff around your house! We grew pumpkins this year and only 1 is really big enough for carving so I've been trying a lot of pumpkin recipes. I'm not sure how a pumpkin soup would go over but the muffins, and pancakes were a big hit and of course pumpkin pie.

Does any one have a good recipe for a roast in a  crock pot, not using soup mixes?

I just made more apple mush for my daughter, that is what I most often use the  crock pot for, cooking jam and pureés.

Favorite fall recipe, candied apples wins all the time.
