Glazed Apple-Oat Cookies | recipe on

According to the calendar, fall is still a week away…but according to the cool, gentle breeze outside, fall has arrived.  I was absolutely ecstatic to put on jeans, socks and slippers the other day while cooking up some good ol’ comfort food.    And after my monthly stack of magazines arrived last week (I’m always excited for fresh reading material!), I was flipping through Food Network Magazine and spied their list of an entire month of apple recipes.  Then my Friday afternoon turned into a loaf of applesauce granola bread and a batch of these little beauties.

If you’re a fan of soft, cake-like cookies, these are for you.  Full of spice and grated apple, these cookies are just begging to be made on a cool, fall afternoon.  Don’t skip the glaze, it’s the icing on the, errr, cookie ;)

Glazed Apple-Oat Cookies
  • 2¼ cups FLOUR
  • 1 teaspoon GROUND CINNAMON
  • ¾ teaspoon BAKING POWDER
  • ½ teaspoon BAKING SODA
  • ½ teaspoon SALT
  • ¼ teaspoon GROUND ALLSPICE
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) BUTTER, melted and cooled slightly
  • ½ cup BROWN SUGAR
  • ½ cup WHITE SUGAR

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line baking sheets with Silpat mats or parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, oats, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and allspice in a bowl.
  3. Stir together butter, sugars and eggs in a large bowl. Add grated apple and vanilla, stir well. Add flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  4. Use a cookie scoop (mine was 1½ Tablespoons) to scoop dough onto baking sheets. The cookies can be fairly close together because they don't spread out too much.

  6. Stir together powdered sugar, milk and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Spoon onto cooled cookies.

Balsamic Chicken and Pear Salad | recipe on

Main dish salad…it’s what’s for dinner.  Does that go over well at your house?  For my husband, a main dish salad has to include protein, fruits/veggies and be full of flavor or else it may not be considered ‘dinner’.    This is an ideal meal for busy nights because all you’re doing is a little chopping, tossing together and before you know it a nutritious meal is ready….

Dilly Beans

Dilly Beans | recipe on

My new favorite ‘pickle’ Dilly Beans are zesty, crunchy and oh so delicious!

I was bitten by a canning bug this summer and, while I didn’t can everything in sight, I did a few things to get my feet wet.  Apricot jam, pickled cherries, dill pickles, dilly beans and candied jalapeno peppers were all delicious.  I particularly LOVED the dilly beans.  These beans are everything a pickled veggie should be – crisp, crunchy and zesty.

You can make these as refrigerator pickles and store in the fridge after the brine cools (you have to let them cure for 2 weeks before enjoying) or can them in a water bath to make them shelf stable.  I can’t wait to use them on my relish trays during the holidays and every time I have company in between.  They are seriously addictive, as in I shouldn’t be left alone with a pint jar ;)…

Pumpkin Butterscotch Squares

Pumpkin Butterscotch Squares | recipe on

Creamy and delicious, Pumpkin Butterscotch Squares are a great way to welcome fall!

Fall = cooler weather, sweaters and boots, colorful leaves for crunching through, apples, cider and, of course, P-U-M-P-K-I-N.  Since, the weather isn’t all that cool yet, let’s start things off with a creamy, cool dessert.  I found this one when flipping through an old church cookbook that had been given to me and I knew it was a must try.  A graham cracker crust, topped with a cream cheese layer, covered in a pumpkin butterscotch pudding and crowned with creamy whipped topping…oh, and the little dusting of pumpkin pie spice makes all right in the world.  If that doesn’t entice you, maybe you aren’t a pumpkin lover?!  I guess we can still be friends, that leaves more for the rest of us ;)…

Cheesy Mexican Rice Skillet

Cheesy Mexican Rice Skillet | recipe on

 This easy, weeknight meal is brought to you by Uncle Ben’s.

I confess…weeknight dinner is sometimes a thorn in my side. My kids are not the most agreeable eaters, but they also know that I do not run a short order kitchen. Our house rule is – you eat what’s on the table for dinner or you can wait until breakfast to eat again. ‘Not liking’ what’s on your plate is not grounds for eating something different. That being said, there are nights that I know everyone will eat what I have planned and I mix up those nights with days where we try new recipes. It all evens out.

Cheesy Bacon Corn Dip

Cheesy Bacon Corn Dip - recipe by

Because it’s not a party without a cheesy appetizer…this recipe for Cheesy Bacon Corn Dip is brought to you as part of an ongoing partnership with Kraft 

One of my family’s favorite things to do is entertain. I’m not talking about tablescapes, place settings and name tags – I mean everyday, anytime, pull out the paper plates kind of entertaining.  We usually get together with friends every other week or so for dinner at one of our homes.  The menu often includes an appetizer and more times than not it is made with cheese!  The versatility of an 8 oz. block of cream cheese is amazing to me at times.  You can make so many different things with it.  I love using Philadelphia Cream Cheese as the starting point for a hot or cold creamy dip….

Mini Caramel Chip Icebox Pies | recipe on

Let’s talk for a minute about no bake desserts.  Could there be anything better?  Getting your sweet tooth fix without even turning on the oven?  I think not.  Mini Caramel Chip Icebox Pies take a little bit of planning ahead, but there’s nothing difficult about them.  They make a cool, creamy treat that’s super easy to love.  There’s a layer of ganache in between the filling and the crust – making ganache is a simple process that takes two ingredients and elevates this little dessert to serve-me-after-dinner-with-friends status.

Genius marketing…Lay’s Potato Chips has it figured out.  Opening up a contest where people suggest flavors for new chips and then creating them and narrowing it down to four finalists…is a super idea.  I then I ‘have‘ to buy 4 bags of chips to ‘see‘ what I like the best.  Well, except for Cappucino (could that actually be a serious contender?!)…my personal favorite are definitely the kettle cooked Wasabi Ginger. #notsponsored

If you’re looking for an easy and flavorful meal that makes dinner easy or game day delicious, these sliders are it.  The work is minimal and the results are intensely flavorful.  I served them alongside my favorite new chips and cucumber slices, but they’d be tasty with Potatoes Au Gratin too!…
