Fall Baking

Our hometown had their annual Johnny Appleseed Festival over the weekend and the apple theme put me in the mood for baking with apples. Sorry but somehow these pictures got a bit out of order but I think you be able to see all the deliciousness none the less.
These first two pictures are Apple Dumplings made with Mountain Dew. Yes I said Mountain Dew. I got the recipe from Ree at If you have never been to her blog and you love cooking, make sure you stop. She is so talented that she even has a cookbook coming out soon. I know I will be one of the firsts in line to order this one. I so love cookbooks and she makes cooking sound so fun and easy.

These were so easy to make and served with ice cream they were delicious.

Next I made a Moist Carmel Apple Cake from an old reliable recipe from I make this at least once a year and everyone just loves it. It is so moist and the caramel sauce makes everything so gooey and yummy. Definitely try this sometime if you have a fall picnic or gathering to attend. Your friends and family will thank you for it.

Well that's all I have time for today. I'm a bit impressed with myself. I've been complaining that I haven't had time to post much lately and here I am posting two days in a row. I wonder if it is possible to go three in a row????

Have a blessed day ladies.



A Few Fall Touches

Good Day Prim Friends. Where does the time go? I had planned on posting this a week ago but time just got away from me. I was finally able to dig out a few of my fall decorations and I wanted to share a couple of pictures with you all. Hopefully this week I will be able to post a few more and possibly some outdoor pictures as well. I hope you like what I've done so far.

This first grouping shows a precious little pumpkin that my niece (who by the way is 3 months older than me) bought for me for my Halloween birthday a couple of years back. I just think he looks so adorable sitting there with his legs crossed. Kind of looks like he is up to something. He is holding a little crow under his arm. You can't really see it too good in this picture though.

This next picture shows a little fall picture frame I put together and a framed felt picture of a pumpkin that I picked up at one of my favorite Prim Shops here in town where I live. Hopefully one day soon I can post a website for this shop. I know Chris has been busy trying to get one set up for some time now.

(I just noticed the lonely black shoe in the picture. I suppose if you squint real hard, you could kind of think it adds a little prim touch to the fall theme.)

This next shot is a little grouping I put together with some coffee stained rag balls that I made. I love the color of the leaves surrounding them. This sits on a table in front of my love seat.

This last display is on my coffee table. I just love the beautiful colors in the flowers in this basket. I could leave fall colors out all year round I love them so much.

Well this is all I have for now. With my daughter having Volleyball games 3 nights a week, decorating for fall has just been pushed to the back burner. My intentions are good but my time is limited.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
