Fall is by far my favourite season (Christmas is my favourite time of year but that doesn’t count). Fall to me is comfort and homemaking, cooking and baking, lounging and cuddling, hugging and kissing… It’s just my favourite! It’s cool enough to wear my favourite sweaters but not so cold that I don’t want to go outside. Sadly, this fall I’m back to working outside of the home. Last fall I was working from home and that allowed me to spend as many hours as I wanted in the kitchen. Now, I need to be more efficient when it comes to my cooking. Enter: the slow cooker. Nothing says “life is good” quite like coming home to a meal that’s been slowly cooking while you’re out working your tail off.

See below for the top ten Slow Cooker recipes that I can’t wait to make this fall. These recipes specifically highlight comforting flavors that compliment cooler weather and what I think of when I’m ready to let go of the summer salads and fish tacos. Come on leaves… Start falling! Start orange-ing!

Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti

Chicken Parmesan Baked Ziti - Delicious and comforting baked ziti with just a couple staple ingredients. #easy #quick #pasta www.testingforthebestthing.com/chicken-parmesan-baked-ziti/

I used to have a friend who I found out doesn’t like pasta. I’ve since ditched that friend because she obviously can’t be trusted. I’m only kidding. We’re still friends but I’m slightly apprehensive. Kidding again. The point here is that I think just about everyone likes pasta. It’s comforting, warm, (usually) cheezy, you can add whatever your favourite protein/veggies are and it’s pretty easy to make. This recipe is no exception.

This baked ziti is one of those meals that you can whip up in 30 mins when you get in the door and have your “wash the day away” shower while it bakes. I love that! I don’t like to eat late so I cook as soon I get in from work but I love being able to get myself showered while something delicious bakes in the oven. This dish came out tasting just as I expected and it was a lovely weekday meal that tasted like “Sunday”. I hope that comparison resonates with at least one of you!

Read below for a couple tweaks I made, what I would do differently next time and how much I liked it!

Cheesy Garlic Butter Potatoes

Cheesy Garlic Butter Potatoes - MOUTHWATERING easy weeknight side dish that compliments all protein! #easy #garlic #potatoes http://www.testingforthebestthing.com/cheesy-garlic-butter-potatoes/

This recipe had me at “cheesy” and “garlic”. Those two words have almost the same effect on me as the two words “cookie dough”. Plus, I had some mini potatoes in my fridge to use up. The flavor was fantastic but not overly indulgent. The perfect balance of giving your taste buds what they need without a ridiculous amount of calories. That said, I may have added extra cheese. Hint: I did.

This side dish was simple enough to make but had a decent number of steps to follow. It might not be ideal for when you’re getting home at 7:00pm and have an hour to get the kids to bed, but it was simple enough to make on a typical week night (I did). I served this side as an accompaniment to an AMAZINGLY delicious chicken recipe that you can check out here: Crispy Onion Chicken.

I don’t have many edits to share but you many see below for what I do suggest to make these PERFECT!

Crispy Onion Chicken

Crispy Onion Chicken - INSANELY easy dinner that takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and is FULL OF FLAVOR! #easy #quick #dinner http://www.testingforthebestthing.com/crispy-onion-chicken

I haven’t made something this tasty that’s THIS easy in a long time. I’m talking 2 ingredients + chicken breasts. I make a lot of simple recipes because that’s how I roll but the amount of FLAVOR that comes from this stupid-easy recipe makes it worth sharing.

I’m not sure that I even feel comfortable calling this a “recipe” as it’s just as simple as slapping some honey mustard and sprinkling crispy onions on some chicken breasts. But it’s SO GOOD that I wouldn’t feel right keeping this mouth-party from you.

I have just a few little tidbits to share with you so please see below for my (minimal) notes and link to the recipe.
