Spiced Crumb Bars

PumpkinCrumbBars

Monday Morning is here to welcome you with a sweet start to your week. I sure hope you had a wonderful weekend! We spent the last couple of days studying and getting caught up on housework. My husband was frequently found with his head buried in textbooks – preparing for the second out of three exams he has to take for his job this morning. I know you will do great, honey! While he was busy I was able to catch up on chores and fun projects. Sunday morning was filled with a family photo shoot of dear friends of ours . Fall is in full swing and we had to take advantage of its beauty. A Green Bay Packer win and a birthday party was the perfect way to end our days off. In hopes of sweetening the beginning of another week, I decided to make some scrumptiously Spiced Crumb Bars. I adore any dessert that’s topped with a crunchy and buttery topping. There’s just something about melting two layers of different textures together and enjoying both of them in one bite. Moist bars and crispy yumminess make a perfect team! [Read more…]

Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

PumpkinBars

In our house fall wouldn’t be fall if we didn’t have these bars. Since almost all the trees are in full foliage, it was definitely time to bake up a batch. This is a family favorite that has been passed down from generation to generation. Something so pure and perfect that is simply unforgettable and loved by all. Tweaking recipes and changing them up a bit is something that comes naturally to me. I am definitely not one that enjoys the same thing over and over. Hello food blog! I like to keep myself engaged and try new things whenever possible. But I realize that some things are meant to be preserved and cherished. Pumpkin Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting are certainly one of them. I follow the recipe to a T and can’t think of a time that these didn’t come out just right. Another reason why this is a family fave, I suspect. [Read more…]

Harvest Apple Fritters

Fritters. These little pillowy (how is pillowy not a word?) bites can be filled with pretty much anything – meats, fruit, vegetables, or anything else that pops into your head. Since we recently picked plenty of apples, my choice was an obvious one. I was so pleased with how these fritters turned out. You see, I always have had a problem when it comes to producing perfectly fried foods. The oil always seems to either be too cold or too hot (even with the help of a thermometer) and I end up with either burned or soggy pieces of food. No bueno. Since I like a challenge and am not easily deterred, I had to give it yet another try. This time around, I used less oil and after said oil reached the perfect temperature (350 degrees), I turned the heat to medium low and started to drop in spoonfuls of dough. Out came the most perfect fritters and I couldn’t have been more elated (yes, I am easily entertained). Don’t know if any of the above mentioned changes have anything to do with making beautiful fritters, but I like to think that these fritters are foolproof. If I can do it, you certainly can, too!
