    Apple Pie Crumble

    I have been LOVING eating all of my apples since our trip to the orchard a few weeks ago. But literally, as I was picking the apples, I was planning for this Apple Pie Crumble. I love the flavor of baked apple swirled with cinnamon and nutmeg and sugar… and butter… and sugar… okay lets be real – I love the crust from apple pie. And I love the buttery sugarI love the sweet apple goo. And I love the buttery sugar crumble from apple crumble. As for the apples themselves – well I really like the sugary goo in both apple pie and crumble!! I think this Apple Pie…

    Leftover Halloween Candy Fudge Brownies

    Growing up I always loved Halloween – I mean what kid doesn’t! Duh – you get Halloween candy. Actually funny story – my dad’s birthday is on Halloween! One might think, how fun is that? But growing up he hated it! Everyone was too busy wanting to celebrate Halloween to celebrate his birthday! So sad! Rude kids. This Halloween was Jake and my FIRST REAL ADULT Halloween! Yes, indeed we have been adults on Halloween before. But we have always lived in apartments, or been travelling – this was the first Halloween we were at home and had to prepare for trick or treaters! I was so excited but had…

    Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

    So its November – which means for the past month, our dear friend pumpkin has been getting ALL of the attention. Don’t get me wrong, I am guilty of pumpkin-centric thinking as well! In fact, I JUST posted a recipe for Classic Pumpkin Bread, so seriously – I am not one to judge. Pumpkin bread is obviously delicious. Adding chocolate chips obviously makes it even MORE delicious. But I think its time we take a step back and remember another on of my favorite quickbread flavors – Chocolate Chip BANANA Bread. If you had to choose only quickbread to eat for the rest of your life – pumpkin or banana –…

    Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel Bars

    JUST when I thought I couldn’t fall in love with another unexpected flavor combination… Salted caramel HAD to step into my life. At first I wasn’t so sure about it – caramel is sugar. So sugar with salt? Weird. But once I saw it the first time. I couldn’t stop seeing it! Suddenly it was everywhere! I HAD to try it. And boy oh boy… It was GOOD! Just like pumpkin spice. Only better. Because salted caramel is always appropriate. In fall – Salted caramel apples. Salted caramel dip. In winter – Hot salted caramel lattes. Warm salted caramel sauce. In spring – Salted caramel candies. Chocolate covered salted caramels. In summer –…

    Easy Caramel Sticky Buns

    During the summer, I have a few pretty standard meals that I rotate through for breakfast: Cereal, yogurt, fruit, smoothie, etc. Pretty much anything that is light, cool or refreshing. These items are all easy to put together fast and great on the go (except cereal – that is not easy on the go – unless you eat it dry). But as the weather gets colder, my cravings at breakfast totally change. I want warmth. Rich flavor. Something to wake me up and prepare my body to brave against the cold day ahead. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal – warm, delicious items that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside and out!! However, there is one item that…
