In a medium-sized frying pan, cook 1 pound of ground beef with ½ chopped onion until the onion is tender and the ground beef is browned. Add the ground beef and onion mixture to your crockpot. Next, add fresh corn, and green beans, peas, cabbage, diced potatoes, carrots, and celery. Pour diced tomatoes with juice and beef broth over the top. Season with basil, oregano, salt, and pepper.

Dish up in your favorite bowl with freshly baked bread and warm butter. Autumn soup is not only tasty, but it’s also good for you. Now that the soup is done, it’s time for dessert. If you thought dump cake was easy before, you’ve never made it in a crockpot.
Crockpot Dump Cake
Clean your crockpot and dump two cans of your favorite pie filling. Cherry, apple, or peach. Next, melt one stick butter in the microwave. In a medium bowl mix one box yellow cake mix with melted butter. Dump cake mix over pie filling. Cover your crockpot and cook on high for 2 hours. Best served warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
