  • Slow Cooker Cranberry Apple Cider

  • Fall beverages are just as important as the food. Classic choices include hot chocolate, apple cider, and anything with caramel. This cranberry apple cider is a delicious twist on a classic.

  • So, if you're still riding the pumpkin wave, keep it up. But if you're ready for some other fall goodness, give these recipes a try.
