Fall Recipe Collection

Good morning!

Are you guys lucky enough to have a long weekend this weekend like I do?  I love Columbus Day weekend — smack in the middle of fall and there are usually lots of fun activities and so many autumn things to do.  And there’s nothing like a Monday off!!

In the spirit of one of my favorite fall weekends, I figured today would be a good day to post a collection of some of my favorite fall recipes.

What’s your favorite fall recipe?

Off to continue the long weekend!  Hope you are doing the same!

Fun Ladies + German Apple Cake = Great Night!

Happy Friday!!

Last night I had some friends over my apartment.  What a fun night!


There was vino, Shipyard, and Slesh’s drink of the week – The Grape Cognac Cocktail.

And lots of yummy snacks to go alongside them!

Winner = Cristin’s spinach artichoke dip.  All natural from Stonewall Kitchen and she used all low-fat or fat-free ingredients.  Score!


For dinner we ordered from Naked Pizza.  As you guys know from one of my first posts on Naked Pizza, I love it because it’s all natural and better for you than regular pizza.  Also, one of my friends has celiac disease and we wanted to make sure she could still join in the deliciousness with some yummy gluten-free options.

Note:  Cute Halloween plates.  Thanks Bridge!


Remember in yesterday’s post when I said I baked an apple cake for dessert?

Here it is!  I got the recipe right off the Honey-Pot Hill Orchards flier I picked up when I went apple picking last weekend.

This recipe was really easy to make since pretty much all it takes is mixing everything together in a big bowl!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 cups chopped apples
  • 1 cup chopped nuts


  1. Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Bake in a 13 x 9 pan at 350 degrees for 45 – 55 minutes.  Recommended check in at 40 minutes.
  3. May frost if desired or cut into squares and serve with ice cream.


Really yummy.

Thanks ladies for coming over!
