It's "Favorites Friday" | Five Foods I Must Try

Wow, that week flew by. I had wanted to come on here earlier and give some updates but here we are at Friday.

So - what's new this week? Hmm... it was horrible. Those changes I mentioned in life has its ruts... well we're still making our way through them and will have news soon! [fingers crossed] For now, let's forget all those people and places that think it's so much fun to put stress on a pregnant woman and her husband!! And, let's move onto food. Because we all know retail therapy - which I'm limited to at the moment - and food, cure all! haha Okay not all, but pretty close.

That brings me to another Favorites Friday... this time five foods I've been dying to make off of my food & drink board on Pinterest (come follow me). Anyways, here goes!

I absolutely love blue cheese and hot stuff... these would be great this weekend!

I'm sure ;) Have a great weekend out there... today's the hubby's birthday so I've convinced him to at least go out for dinner (he's a no fuss, forget it's even happening type of birthday guy). Oh, and don't be afraid to share your favorite fall recipe or one you've been dying to make in the comments below - I'd love to hear from you!

Apples in Bloom Recipe.


Alright, as my treat to everyone out there and as a Happy Thanksgiving to my neighbors to the south, I'm going to share my favorite apple recipe with you. When I was in grade 7, we used to travel to the high school one day a week to participate in a home studies class. While there, I picked up my absolutely favorite apple recipe and have been making it ever since. Here it is:

Apples in Bloom

4 to 6 apples - I just peel whatever I have, you can never have too many apples!
1 tsp butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar 

Dry Ingredients:

1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1ml salt
3/4 cup white sugar

Wet Ingredients:

1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Wash apples, cut into quarters, core and slice. Mix dry ingredients together in one bowl. Mix wet ingredients together in a separate bowl, then add to dry ingredients. Put batter in 9x9 pan and place sliced apples on top of batter. Dot with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. Bake for 25 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean.
