Happiness is Homemade 341
This week’s features are all sparked by my fascination with Fall and anything apple related. I know Fall is pumpkins but it also is all about picking apples and making scrumptious recipes and crafts.
Let’s get started shall we first up is a stunning Fall Apple Tray from the House on Silverado. She opted for an early Fall theme because the eather is changing so quickly. Working with apples instead of pumpkins. a perfect opportunity to display some of my vintage baking utensils, since several of them worked with my color scheme. Plus, apples and baking go hand-in-hand, right?
Looking for a cake with fresh fruit? Well how about a moist and no-fail Fresh Apple Cake with perfect amount of sweetness plus large chunks of apple, that adds a great flavor and texture to this cake. Treat and Trick shared this awesome cake on her blog and with us this week. She uses Granny Smith apples for that tart apple flavour. Mine is made of granny smith but other varieties such as gala, red delicious, McIntosh or combination of them should work too. Don’t use a food processor to chop the apples. It should be roughly chopped into 1/2 in chunk.
and then I saw Apple Fritters, and went on my goodness. How tasty do these look. Cook,Clean and then Repeat has me wanting to try this that is for sure. This easy apple fritters recipe will quickly become one of your favorites. They’re such a delicious fruit dessert. The combination of crunchy, sweet, and fruity deliciousness is a classic accompaniment to any meal in my mind.
OK, face palm I fibbed not an apple post but it is a Fall Tablescape. I saw the hint of Orangey Red and the leaves and the vintage centrepiece and it sparked an interest. Maybe no Apples in Clover House’s Table for Two but I bet she was thinking apples. As usual, I mix a few old pieces with new ones. I love using my Pioneer Woman (PW) dishes for my table settings. They literally can go for any occasion or season! Also, in case you’re new here, I use my vintage flatware for photos only, we do not eat with these beauties!
and just in case all that reading made you thirsty, how about a Spiced Apple Ice Tea from Cindy’s on Line Recipe Box? A seasonal twist to everyone’s favorite refreshing drink * ICED TEA * … Although I do live in Texas, this isn’t Sweet Tea (except for what’s in the apple cider packet) * with sugar or sugar-free
