Apple Pudding Cake with Caramel Sauce

Apple Cake with Caramel Sauce

Today I have a Recipe Redo of the very first recipe I ever shared here on the blog back in November 2007.  I think the the very first dessert recipe definitely deserves a Recipe Redo and a little more attention, don’t you?!

I anxiously await the fall each year so I can make Apple Pudding Cake.  It is one of those desserts that just needs to be eaten in the fall. Apple [Continue Reading...]

This week was our twice a month Activity Day for the 8-11 year old girls at church.  When I asked them what were some of the things they wanted to learn in Activity Days one of the answers I got from quite of few of them was cook/bake.  So this week we decided to teach them to make pies.

What is it about Fall that just says apples, cinnamon and nutmeg? When I asked for muffin recipes on my very first Muffin Monday post, Cheryl graciously sent me the link to this recipe that is on her blog.  She has a food blog that she does with her three sisters and her mother – how fun is that.  The recipe originally came from AllRecipes. The recipe calls for diced apple and grated apple.  I only had two apples so I just diced them both.  The muffins were delicious but [Continue Reading...]

My parents were coming for dinner last Sunday so it was the perfect opportunity to try out one of Deb’s recipes – Dulce de Leche and Apples. I am a big dulce de leche fan since our [Continue Reading...]
