Hooray, Friday Recipes are back!! Did you miss ’em? I know you did, I know I did.

I spotted this recipe over on Pinterest (duh), and I pinned it because I’m pretty sure I started drooling as soon as I saw the picture. It’s the goodness of an apple pie in a bite size package. Cookin Up North swiped it from Taste Of Home magazine.

All you have to do is cut up an apple, wrap it up in some store bought pie dough and cinnamon and sugar, brush with melted butter, cook ’em up and enjoy! I really hope I get a chance to try it this weekend, it’s the perfect Fall snack.

So glad to have us all together again to celebrate recipes, have a great weekend!

It got dark tonight at 7:30pm.  7:30!  And although the days are still pretty hot, the mornings are getting cooler and so Fall is definitely on its way.  When I ran across this recipe at Creature Comforts earlier this week it made me think of Autumn and hot cider and cinnamon and falling leaves and… comfort.  I could use a good dose of comfort this week, how about you?

The recipe is really easy: dip the cored-apple rings into a simple batter, shallow fry them and drizzle with a buttery-cinnamony icing.   For the full recipe (which is really from howto-simply.com) at Creature Comforts click here.  Happy Weekend!

Simple Bites: Overnight Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

Anybody just go back to Fall “school” schedules and having a hard time making breakfast for the kiddos and still get them out the door on time?  Anybody having out-of-guests stay over and you need an easy breakfast idea?  Anybody trying to find budget friendly but still yummy recipes?  Anybody making a conscious effort to eat a healthy breakfast?  Anybody love the idea of comfort food to start your day off right?  Then… I think I might have found a recipe just for you!

Aimee over at Simple Bites posted this recipe recently and I think it’s a winner.  I happen to like oatmeal but I don’t always want to stand in front of the stove in the wee small hours of the morning to make it.  But this is a make-ahead recipe and it sounds DI-VINE!  Plus, it uses the most basic of ingredients:  oats, apples, eggs, butter, etc. to make a comforting and filling meal.  I especially love that you grate a small apple into the mix which makes it 1) almost texturally undetectable (important for picky eaters) and 2) my sister makes an amazing grated apple pie (the only apple pie I like to eat) and so this recipe reminds me of her pie.

I hope you give it a try!  Happy weekend everyone!
