You can make Oreo truffles out of any of the different flavors of Oreo. Try this caramel apple version, dipped in chocolate to resemble an actual caramel apple.
Happy Halloween! It seems fitting that today is also caramel apple day and since Oreo was thoughtful enough to make a caramel apple creme golden Oreo I went ahead and made truffles out of them. I even dipped them in green and light brown chocolate candy coating to resemble a caramel dipped apple on a stick. Or a green buckeye depending on how you look at it.
Try this homemade oatmeal recipe and you may never buy the microwave packets again. It’s hard to beat fresh apples and walnuts.
After nearly 4 years of blogging I’ve started what many food bloggers have done before me – remaking old recipes. The pictures from those early years not only do not do the recipes justice, but they may have been overlooked or forgotten after all this time which does not suit them. One recipe in particular is my dad’s apple harvest oatmeal. This is the oatmeal that ruined me for the instant microwave packets. In my world, nothing can compare to this oatmeal except maybe variants on the additional ingredients. For example, I recently shared the recipe for a pumpkin version which was a fun fall flavor change-up.

Apples, cinnamon, and peanut butter make for a delicious and easy snack. Served on a toasted mini bagel.
How many of you live in or around Cleveland, OH? Or maybe visit there every now and then? Heck if you just like board games and beer, hear me out. My friends are opening Cleveland’s first board game cafe called Tabletop Board Game Cafe. Tabletop will feature over 1000 board games, weekly trivia night, monthly diy design sessions in their maker space, and will be located in Ohio City. Cool right? If you don’t believe me check out the video on their Kickstarter to find out more and even play a role in putting the finishing touches on their cafe.
I have been helping them out by trying out various smoothie and bagel bite recipes for their menu. This recipe is yet another and although it’s not quite as exciting as some that I made in the past, there’s no denying apples, cinnamon, and crunchy peanut butter.

Turn those leftover apple skins and cores from making homemade applesauce and apple pie into jelly! Tastes great and you get to make the most out of every aspect of the apple.
So after you are done peeling and coring all those apples to make a delicious apple pie, are you supposed to just throw away the skins and cores? No! Don’t you dare throw those precious morsels into the waste basket. They are the perfect candidates for making homemade apple jelly. It make look a bit gross while it cooks down but I promise it results in the best apple jelly. And you will feel resourceful by using every part of the apple.
This recipe uses the skins and cores from 20 pounds of apples, which were used to make a bunch of homemade applesauce and two apple pies. In case you did not just have an apple-fest, you could also use whole apples to make this jelly. Five pounds of whole chopped apples may be substituted for the peels and skins from 20 pounds of apples. The most important part is making sure you have the exact amount of juice and sugar. Happy canning!

Apple crumble pie is the best of both worlds with a flaky crust and crumbly topping. This pie also has some maple syrup in the mix for added fall flavor.
The last day of September is upon us, seriously where did the month go? While I have finally succumbed to fall baking starting with apples the last two weeks it’s already time to start diving into pumpkin and Halloween candy with October. But first the apples. It has come to my attention that I have a decent supply of apple pie recipes. Regular double-crust apple pie, caramel apple, apple pecan, apple blackberry, and even an apple crumble. However, evidently I have not reached the quota and have yet another apple pie recipe for you and it may be my new favorite. It combines the classic deliciousness of a traditional pie crust with the excellence of a nutty crumble topping and some maple syrup for good measure. The sugar content of the filling may be slightly decreased but don’t worry the sugar in the crumbly topping compensates.

When tailgating for a night game sometimes a cold beer does not appeal. It’s getting cooler at night which means a warm beverage would be most appreciated. Spiced cider to the rescue! But instead of being spiked with rum I used amaretto. The almond flavor pairs exceptionally well with apples. It’ll warm you up from the inside.

Get ready for fall with these white chocolate, cinnamon-apple blondies. Topped with a drizzle of melted white chocolate.
A yea ago today, I was standing in front of a crowd presenting and defending nearly 7 years of research. A part of my soul on display. And it earned me a PhD. Yes a year ago today I defended my 189 page dissertation in a 45-ish minute presentation followed by an hour of questioning in order to stamp Dr before my name. Unfortunately I have not been able to take advantage of using the title as much as I would have hoped in the past year but I’ve definitely enjoyed this unconventional time off, post-grad school.
Today is also national white chocolate day and I love white chocolate. In honor of my doctorate anniversary I decided to combine it with apples because an apple a day keeps the doctor away – unless you happen to be one and then there is no escape! That was a terrible joke, my apologies. But I will not apologize for how good these blondies are. White chocolate, chopped fresh apple and cinnamon come together to make one chewy blondie with flavors fit for the first day of fall.
Let the patriotic celebrations begin with this red, white and blue white wine sangria. Complete with star-shaped apple slices.
The USA takes on Belgium today for the final game in the round of sixteen. With the 4th of July this week I decided to mix up a white wine sangria with red (strawberries), white (apples) and blue (blueberries) fruit floating around in it. But that’s not all folks, the apples are cut into star shapes to make it even more patriotic. It appeals to taste buds and patriots! I unfortunately will be working (without a glass of this sangria in hand) but thankfully the location at which I am today has a TV within view from the front desk, so you better know what channel I will have it set on.
With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, everyone is planning recipes for a meal to feed the masses. But what about the people cooking for a small group of people or ::gasp:: just one of two? If you fall into the latter category then this apple crumble is for you. Although I easily devoured the entire thing in one (short) sitting, it could definitely satisfy two especially if you serve it a la mode.
I went ahead and topped it off with my new favorite ice cream- Graeter’s Salted Caramel. Seriously that stuff rocks my face off and made me enjoy this crumble even more than I thought possible.
Liquid Frozen gold, I’m telling you.
