Apple Burritos


What a depressing day this was. I think I hugged my girls every 2 minutes. Lucky for me, they don’t mind and they hug back. We spent the night playing Just Dance 4. That wore me out! But I will cherish every minute of it.

Apple Wraps

Yesterday was my mom’s birthday. I really wanted to try to make her favorite cake from scratch but Megan told me it wouldn’t be a good idea to experiment on Gram’s birthday. So instead we had my favorite pot roast and a Nothing Bundt Cake which was really, really good. I guess I’ll have to experiment on a normal day.









They didn’t even plan this…

But earlier in the week I used up the last of the Costco apples… These were really good and quick and easy to make.

1 can Crescents
1 Apple, peeled and cut into 8 slices
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 Tbs Butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Separate crescents into triangles. Mix butter and cinnamon in a small bowl. Using a rubber brush, lightly brush the butter mixture onto each triangle. Place one apple slice on each one. Roll up and brush tops with butter mixture. Bake for 13-15 minutes.

Apple Quesadilla

Last week at about 8pm Megan asked me if I could take her somewhere. When I asked her where she said “Costco”. That was the last place I expected her to say. When I asked what she needed at Costco she said “Samples!” So yesterday I took her to Costco for lunch. She was a little disappointed. They had granola, Nutella Quesadilla, peanut crunch bar and pretzels. But she did manage to find an adorable super soft leopard robe that Lily seems to think is a new bed….

For this recipe we used the flatbread that we found at Costco.

21 oz Apple Pie Filling
4 Roti-Chapati Flatbread
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Powdered Sugar

Warm apple filling in microwave or stove top until warm.

Preheat skillet over medium heat. Place 1 flatbread in skillet and cook for 15 seconds on each side. Repeat with remaining 3 flatbreads. Put apple filling between two pieces of flatbread and grill on each side for another 15 seconds.

Apple Pie Crescents

I love anything baked with apples. This was so easy to make and really yummy. I had to quickly run them down to my sister’s house so I wouldn’t keep eating them.

Since I’m sure you’ve all been waiting….here’s my Fall Village. It even has an apple market! This one is the girls’ favorite because it has 3 little squirrels that they take turns hiding to see if they can find them.

1 can Crescent Rolls, 8 rolls
10 oz Apple Pie Filling
1 tsp Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Separate crescents into triangles. Fill each crescent with about 2 apple slices and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 13-15 minutes.

Caramel Pecan Banana Sundae


I’ve come to realize that staying at home has turned me into my grandfather. He had unfinished projects all through the house for the first 18 years of my life. My favorite unfinished project was the sheetrock that he put up in the family room. He spackled (I have no idea how to spell spackle but apparently this isn’t it) the nail holes after he put the sheetrock up but that was where he stopped. So for as long as I can remember they had polka-dotted walls. I took inventory of my unfinished projects today…I have polka dots on 3 walls, 2 tables to refinish, 12 chairs to recover (1 is done so there is a mismatched set somewhere), plants for the yard (those are almost finished), herbs to plant, a broken armoire that needs to be moved and an attic door that won’t close. Oh! And I just refinished the shades on my chandelier – one to check off my list! I figure I have enough projects to get me through the summer. So to save some time in the kitchen, here’s a really quick, easy and healthy dessert for when you get a sweet tooth.

2 Medium Bananas, sliced
2 Tablespoons Sugar-Free Caramel Sauce
2 Tablespoons Chopped Pecans

Warm caramel sauce in the microwave for 15 seconds (30 if it has been refrigerated). Pour sauce over bananas and top with pecans.
