Mac & Cheese has been a go-to meal of mine since I can remember.

Mac & Cheese will just always be something I never want to live without.

This recipe is easy to make and is perfect for warming you up during the fall and winter. I, personally, love pouring this vegetable curry over a bowl of quinoa. It’s one of my go-to dinners–especially as the chilly weather rolls in.

 14. Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples

Speaking of chilly weather go-to’s…these cinnamon apples are another one of mine! I love eating them just as is, with some vanilla Greek yogurt, or even on top of some healthy pancakes or waffles in the morning. They’re the perfect fall snack, breakfast ingredient, or dessert!
