This is the best meatloaf you will ever eat. And I mean…leave it to the cake lady to turn meatloaf into cupcakes. Just saying. Meatloaf: 1lb ground turkey- dont use the extra lean it will dry out … Continue reading
So it’s about that time of year when I start getting antsy for longer…warmer days. We usually take a family trip to Key Lime Cove to try and combat the winter blues…they keep the pool area at least 80 degrees … Continue reading
So it’s been 100 years since I’ve posted a recipe. Get over it. I’ve been a little busy you know having a baby and starting a new job. Now, I have to admit this recipe is a copy cat. It … Continue reading
So there’s a lot of people out there who don’t like chocolate covered cherries….or cherries and chocolate and I really have no idea why. I’ve always kind of strayed away from a chocolate cherry cupcake for this reason. Last night … Continue reading
I hosted a baby shower this past weekend with a fall theme. Among the spread was chili, pumpkin dip, and of course cider. Now anyone who knows me wasn’t surprised to find out that not only did I make hot cider but homemade caramel sauce and cinnamon syrup to go in it. I was forced to break down and buy canned whipping cream (made with only 100% heavy cream and sugar of course). Maybe for Christmas someone will buy me one of these and then I wouldn’t have to feel guilty 🙂
Now as always you can sub store bought versions of these ingredients but I like to think my way is both cheaper and yummier.
Hot Caramel Apple Cider
What you need (per 8 oz cup):
8 oz apple cider (any type is fine)
2-4 TBSP cinnamon syrup
3 TBSP caramel sauce
Whipped cream for topping
(Recipes for syrup at the end. Caramel recipe can be found in my post on caramel apple pie)
What to do:
Heat up cider in the microwave. Once hot stir in caramel and cinnamon syrup. Top with whipped cream (pretty easy right?)
You can add more or less caramel and cinnamon syrup to your taste!
Two whole cinnamon sticks
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups water
Mix all together in a saucepan over low heat.
Don’t allow to come to a rolling boil, but let simmer on very low heat, uncovered for about 30 minutes.
I’m a huge soup fan, but when it’s 500 degrees out I really don’t want to cook and eat hot soup. I’m glad it’s fall again and I won’t get overheated eating soup 🙂 This recipe is a good one … Continue reading
Over the last year I’ve really started enjoying entering baking contests. I’ve entered essentially the same recipe 3 times to different pie contests and I’ve decided this is the best pie recipe out there. After all…who doesn’t love pie. And … Continue reading
