On the Subject of Apples


It's been three full days of apples and honey and what a lovely holiday it's been. Thank you all for your good wishes. On my Pinterest recipe board I've been collecting lots of yummy fall recipes, most of which are at least 500 calories just to look at them. In an effort to wear the same clothes for all of October I'm sharing a much healthier, but still fun, recipe. It's also easy, though I haven't attempted hollowing out an apple. I'm generally challenged in the area of garnishment and I may be eating lots of apple pieces while I attempt to get the carved out apple carved. The entire recipe -- direction is more apt -- is to hollow out an apple and serve spiced cider in the apple. A few small slices of orange and a cinnamon stick and it's a great fall beverage.

Tomorrow we have the winner of the "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Giveaway." There's still time to enter. and I'm putting together a few little extras for the giveaway package.

Happy, healthy and sweet!

I'm glad you had a great holiday. What a clever idea to serve spiced cider inside the actual apple. I think adding an orange slice and cinnamon stick makes it perfect. Sounds delicious. I still can't get into Pinterest, my mind doesn't work that way. But I know most people love it. Looking forward to more of your recipes. Have a nice weekend.

Love the idea! I wonder what is the best way to hollow out an apple (maybe I'll experiment)?

Lovely Blog, you made me laugh; I know what you mean by recipes that 'cost you' 500 calories just to look at!

What a cute idea this is - - - using the apple as the cup!

But, how HARD is it to do all that scooping????
