What I’m Lovin’ Wednesday: Apples to Apples

When I was thinking about what I wanted to write about this week for "what I’m lovin", my taste buds screamed APPLES!!!  It must be something about this time of year (ha-ha) that makes me love apples.  In fact about this time last year, I wrote about apples (see here).  I guess some things just don’t change, and thank goodness!  Last year I shared apples in general with you, but this year I really want to focus on apple recipes because I personally just can’t get enough.  Do ya feel me on this one or what?!

I’ve never been to an apple orchard to pick my own apples; this is something I need to get around to some day.  While I’ve never picked my own apples, I’ve certainly cooked my fair share, and here are some of my favorite apple recipes.Apple Recipes

Oh I love apples in the fall! We go to an apple orchard each year and pick apples and then I have a ball in the kitchen with them :) Today I ate some of my vanilla applesauce that I made (my favorite recipe ever!) and I'm making an apple pie this weekend! I actually have never baked an apple pie - can you believe it?!

Whoa, that is one awesome round-up of all things apple! I need to pin some of them! I have missed visiting you, sweet friend. I hope things are going well, especially with the changes in the upcoming future for you. Have a great week!

WOW WOW WOW! Thanks for this. I have so many apples and no clue what to do with them. I was too lazy to look on Pinterest so thanks for this post- I think I need to get on those quick apple dumplings {like now}. What kind of apples do you use {in general}? I have never had luck with store bought apples.
