Apple Cinnamon Spice Bread

Tangy sweet apples are the star in this moist Apple Cinnamon Bread.

Hun... What's for Dinner? Apple Cinnamon Bread- Secret Recipe Club

This bread is so delicious that I ended up making it three times. Well, I was worried the first loaf was going to be a disaster, because I totally forgot to add the baking powder and baking soda (that's what happens when you try to catch up on Game of Thrones, while working in the kitchen!). I quickly added it in, before pouring the batter in the pan, but it was very thick and I wasn't sure it had mixed well. So, I decided to make a second loaf, to make sure I had one made properly for photos. Since the batter was a little thick the first time, I decided to add in a bit of apple cider. Well, I ended up bringing the second loaf to our PTA meeting, not having a chance to take photos. This loaf was SO delicious, that I knew I'd be back in the kitchen making a third loaf, to share with you guys today. 

The loaf is deliciously moist, studded with chunks of tangy sweet apples. The brown sugar adds a delicious deep warmth, along with the cinnamon. I love cloves in my apple recipes, so I decided to add some, along with a touch of nutmeg. Rather than sprinkle the top with additional sugar, I decided to make a glaze with some leftover canned vanilla frosting and apple cider.

Apple Cinnamon Spice Bread
Adapted from Mostly Food and Crafts

1 1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 C apple cider
1/2 C vegetable oil
1 1/2 C apples, peeled, cored and chopped (I used Nova Spy)

1/3 C vanilla frosting (I used Betty Crocker in a can)
2-4 Tbs apple cider

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter or grease a 9 inch loaf pan; set aside.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ground ginger and salt, in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl mix together the sugars, eggs, vanilla and oil. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and and mix until just about combined. Gently stir in the apples, making sure to not over mix. Pour into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes, to an hour; until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes in the pan, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the glaze, mix 2 Tbs of apple cider into 1/3 C of frosting. If too thick, add in more apple cider (1 Tbs at a time), until you reach a pour-able consistency. Drizzle over the cooled loaf, before slicing.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.

When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??

This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
#1 Visit a local pumpkin patch

Even though my health isn't the greatest, we haven't been living like hermits. We don our masks, bring hand sanitizer and make sure to social distance. So a trip to our local pumpkin patch, to pick our pumpkins, is one way we will be bringing a bit of n…
