As the nights get cooler and the leaves begin to change, fall settles into the air. It must mean it’s apple season! Apples are one of my family’s favorite fruits. Even though you can get them year round, they just seem tastier in the fall. My first link party with the Celebrate365 bloggers is All About Apples!
I’m excited to co-host my first Celebrate365 blog party with three of my blogger friends. Carlee from Cooking with Carlee, Jan from The Tip Garden and Val from Corn Beans Pigs and Kids. We’d love it if you checked out what’s happening on our blogs. Then come back here to check out the delicious recipes and ideas in the blog party.
Favorite apple recipes from my co-hosts blogs include applesauce oatmeal bread with vanilla honey butter over at Cooking with Carlee, easy apple dumplings from Corn Beans Pigs and Kids and this kielbasa, apple, bacon, sweet potato skillet meal from The Tip Garden.
I love all of the apple recipes on my blog, otherwise they wouldn’t be here, but I just want to point out a couple of my absolute favorites:
These cinnamon apple turnovers with maple drizzle remind me of my Dad and my childhood. My Mom used to buy frozen apple turnovers and every once in a while my Dad would make one for each of us. The smell of apples and cinnamon in the house was intoxicating. I always, always burned my mouth because I could not wait to dig in once they were out of the oven. I think my Dad would have applauded my homemade version and would have loved the maple drizzle.
This warm apple topping of my Mom’s became a new family favorite after I made it for #AppleWeek 2018. I topped apple cider pancakes with it but you could also serve it over ice cream, grilled pound cake, waffles, French toast or even as a side dish to ham. My youngest loves the fried apples at a major restaurant chain. I usually buy a jar when we pass by to have in the pantry. Now I will make this instead and I know everyone will still be happy.
I took sparkling cider pound cake to a meeting a few years ago and it was well received. When people ask for the recipe, I consider that a win. I initially made it for #AppleWeek 2016 but I’ve made in many times since then. It makes nice potluck dessert or for a holiday buffet table served alongside a selection of teas and a pot of coffee and maybe a carafe of milk for the kids.
All bloggers are welcome to link up all things apple to celebrate apples.
That includes recipes, crafts, ideas, and tips as long as it relates to apples.
It’s a week long blog party and you’re invited to join in the fun!
