Apple-Cinnamon Stovetop Potpourri #AppleWeek


Today’s #AppleWeek theme is crafts and décor!

I decided to bring some stovetop potpourri to the party, since it’s a bit more crafty than foodie.  Or maybe a foodie craft?  Yeah, let’s go with that one.

I love this potpourri because it is crazy easy to make, uses up the apple scraps and makes the whole house smell like apple pie!

Mini Apple Pies with Cheddar Crust #AppleWeek

Do you eat apple pie with a slice of cheese on top?

My family loves it!

A slice of salty cheddar cheese balances a sweet slice of apple pie perfectly.

For our desserts day in #AppleWeek, I decided to take it to the next level and add the cheese directly into the crust!

Honestly?  I was surprised at how subtle the cheese was.

Sage Pork Chops with Apple Pan Gravy #AppleWeek

It’s #AppleWeek Day 2 and it’s all about the entrées!

This recipe is all about happy coincidences.

First, I was planning to have Hubs grill pork chop for dinner, but he got home super late, so I decided to cook them stovetop instead (I really need to get over my grill fear).

Apple Pie Martini #AppleWeek

Today is the kickoff of #AppleWeek!

And what better way to start off than with drinks? 

Every good party start off with cocktails, right?

Last year I made a completely amazing Pumpkintini, complete with a pie crust swizzle stick, so I knew I absolutely needed to make the same thing happen only with apple pie!  And so the Apple Pie Martini was born!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I did that thing again.

I bought a bunch of bananas, thinking I was actually going to eat them.

Then I let them sit on the counter until they got all brown and scary and attracted fruit flies (where do those things come from?!?)

So it was time to play with banana bread again. 

This time, I wanted to add chocolate chips and coffee.  Then I decided to go all in and add peanut butter too.

Cookies 'n Creme Rock Fudge

I was playing with my food again.

I took Cookies ‘n Crème Fudge (which is super delish, by the way) and made it into some pretty convincing looking rocks and sent them with the boys to a cub scout event.

Crème Brûlée French Toast

My mom always makes an amazing overnight French toast at Easter.  I usually provide the challah and she makes the amazing brunch!

I’ve always wanted to make it myself, but I never really needed to make a large batch of French toast for just my little family and I don’t ever really have company over for brunch (I’m more in the breakfast for dinner camp).

Then, I made challah for secret recipe club AND my in-laws were in town, so I finally had a chance to make my French toast!
