My Favourite Apple Recipes

I love this time of year, summer lingering, but cool Fall air coming, and of course apple season! I have a few favourite apple recipes, but honestly I have two that I make over and over again . . . my mouthwatering Authentic Polish Apple Fritters (which the recipe has been re-pinned +400 times on Pinterest!), and…

Barbie Birthday Cake

It was a very Barbie Birthday party this past weekend to celebrate my daughter’s 5th Birthday, and I couldn’t resist re-posting the cake recipe I use because it is just SO good and always gives me great results. This may be a yearly tradition with a new theme every year! So, once again I went to…

The recipe was passed to her from friends, and…
