Wow i’ve pretty much fallen off the planet! My sewing machine has been collecting dust, i’ve purged craft supplies of all kinds, I’m just not in a creative season. We are in a busy season as most are during summer but i’m also just in a season where most of my time is spent working or reading or doing bible study or prepping for a 5k. I’ve finished my christmas gifts except for my husband but we went with bought gifts this year it was just easier. (The only redeeming factor is we did our best to buy from brands that give in some way). That all being said the fall is upon us in 2 days!!! So since i’m busy at bible study, and leadership training, and going on camping trips my creativity has gone to the kitchen! I wanted to share a few of the recipes i’ve been trying out lately some better then others all thanks to pinterest! (if you don’t know I’m a pinterest-a-holic then you don’t know me!) Now please note most of these are fallish recipes and even though its been a hot hot hot few weeks i started in with my first fall recipe mid august. 🙂
Ok now before you scroll for those recipes i just want to say that today i baked a pumpkin apple pie all of my own recipe creativity i plan to share it so check in hopefully tomorrow it will take me a bit to type up the recipe. Ok now onto the pinterest ones……
Apple sauce bars
Apple Enchiladas (now note i don’t use the apple pie filling they suggest i found another recipe i prefer that you mix fresh apple slices with 1 box vanilla pudding mix, 4tbl water, and some cinnamon)
Cookie dough bites
Pork stuffed Yams
Did you think i only bake? I don’t I do cook real food to!
Peanut butter squares (YUMMMMM!)
The best shrimp dip you’ll ever try!!!!
our current addiction- Baked zucchini
Flourless zucchini muffins (let me tell you these bad boys rocked!!!!!)
Ahhhh apple picking season comes with fall!!! I made our regular apple bundles but i’ve also whipped up some of the best apple sauce i’ve made yet!!!!
check it out so easy!!!! i didn’t have a cinnamon stick so i used just seasoning.
and lastly my son helped me make these cookies. he liked them as did my husband and me the pumpkin lover wasn’t super impressed!
Well i’m off to type up the easies pie recipe you ever did make that sounds super gourmet and had everyone impressed! Be sure to check back!!!!
I love cooked apples and lucky for me its the fall so the recipes are in abundance. But i decided to invent my own the other day and it was yummy. I warn you not really healthy and really much more of a dessert but i didn’t care and neither should you! You should just make and it and enjoy it!
Here is my recipe:
1 pizza crust. (i used 1/2 the tube of pillsbury pizza dough)
cinnamon and sugar
lemonade, citrus soda (7-up, sprite), orange juice, or apple cider
1) Spread out dough on a greased cookie sheet or pizza stone. stab with fork and let sit for a few min
2) Wash, peel, core, and chop or slice apples
3) Pour a cap full- 1/4 cup of your liquid of choice. ( I totally eyed this you want just enough to cover the dough in a thin layer not drench the dough so its pooling or running off your stone)
4) Spread out apples ontop of dough
5) Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to taste
6) Bake at 350 for 20 min or until dough is cooked.
7) Slice and enjoy!
This is basically my apple dumpling recipe, which is done by wrapping the apple pieces in crescent rolls instead of spreading them out on top of the dough.
