    My grandma (and now my aunt) has always made Waldorf Salad after we go apple-picking in the fall. There are several potential variations to the historic apples/celery/mayo recipe created by New York City's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in the 19th century. We like adding walnuts, grapes, and lemon juice too!

    CREAM CHEES PIE DOUGH ~~ This recipe will make enough for a double crusted pie or two single crusted pies. 2 sticks cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/4 inch pieces; 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour; 1 tsp salt; 6 ounces of cold cream cheese, cut into small pieces; 3 or 4 tablespoons of ice water. Combine the flour and salt in a food processor and pulse to blend it. Add the butter and cream cheese pulsing this until pea size clumps form. While the food processor is running add the water but only 1 tablespoon at a time and until the mixture comes together when pressed in your hand. Divide your dough into 2 pieces and then shape into a disk. Wrap your disks in plastic wrap and then refrigerate until they are firm, usually about 45 minutes. **If you freeze the cream cheese for about 1/2 an hour it makes it much easier to cut into small pieces.

    My easiest and kid friendly crock pot recipe is simply boneless chicken breast and sal in the crock pot on low all day. I then remove the chicken and use my Kitchenaid mixer to shred the chicken and return to pot. I use for tacos, buritos, or chips. Great for dinner or appetizers.

    We just got a Big Green Egg, and we love to do Pork roast on it. We cooked it about 5 hours at 200 degrees. We used season salt, pepper, soy and a little honey on the roast, IT was delicious.

    Love Fall! I enjoy desserts, but not the calories or making such a mess sometimes. Found this and it is so easy and oh so yummy: Apples in In A Bag Author: Paula Rhodes, 1 smalll apple (Golden Delicious or Granny Smith are my favorite) 1 packet of sweetener (Splenda is my favorite), or a spoonful of sugar ¼ teaspoon cinnamon ¼ teaspoon cornstarch 1 tablespoon water Small handful of raisins, optional Instructions Peel or don?t peel apple, core and slice or dice. Place in freezer-quality plastic zippered bag along with remaining ingredients. Seal bag and shake well to mix ingredients. Reopen bag just a touch to vent. Microwave on High for 2 minutes? longer if you use a big apple. Carefully (it will be HOT and steamy) open bag and pour over plain or cinnamon-sugar pita chips, flour tortilla chips, oatmeal or ice cream. I ate it with oatmeal. It was so good and warn.

    We Love baking apples in the oven and letting the wonderful aroma fill our home, it's healthy, it's yummy, no preservatives, use your favorite apples, depending on your oven, let them bake until skin is golden and peeling off the apple. When you spoon out the sweet apple, it's like eating a warm, yummy applesauce that only grandma used to make.......childhood memory lane.


    Turte apples, cover apple with caramel, chocolate and your favorite nuts and mini choc chips. So easy and delicious
