BLOG CANDY....finally!!

Ok...so I am a few days late...but what else is new?!! I can't even explain how busy it has been at my house!! I have been on the run non-stop since I got back in town and it's not quite letting up yet!! {note to self...don't leave town 2 weeks after school starts...too much going on!!} This is a random little pile of things for blog candy, but still counts as good candy I think!! I also wanted to hit Archivers before I posted this to add something or 2 somethings...but I haven't found the time to go yet but I should be able to make it there later this week...so whoever wins this candy will get a little extra surprise with their candy!! I have no idea what question to ask?....my mind is too full of 'stuff' to even think...hmm...give me just a minute!...Oh I know...how 'bout this...Do you have a favorite baked good you like in the fall? There is something about fall that makes me what to bake even more and one favorite I have that I save for this time of year is my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread! Oh, just typing about it makes me what some right now!! (...of course it could also be that "fall" smell on my hands, I just came from Bath & Body Works!) I will share my recipe for my, oh so good, (if I do say so myself) Pumpkin Bread later this week! *How to get this candy?...Leave a comment on this post (just one please) and you are entered to win! I will draw a name on Friday at noon, so you have until then!! Good Luck! Have a fabulous Monday!!!
***THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you who visit my blog...you are absolutely wonderful!!!***

Shutterbug said...

I have a recipe for Harvest Pumpkin Brownie. The name itself says fall and it tastes like all the wonder and flavor of the season mixed into one.
I'll see if I can find the recipe to share it with you. It's so easy to make and OH So DELICIOUS!

Heidi said...

You make the cutest stamped stuff!! Thanks for letting me come look at all your ideas!!
This time of year is all about pumpkin and I love this pasta with pumpkin sauce on it...weird I know but oh so yummy!!

jodene said...

One of my favorite recipies for this time of year is Veggie Pizza. It is a cold pizza made with cream cheese. We do more entertaining in the fall and I look forward to making this. Thanks for the chance!

Cindy Vernon said...

I love making a nice warm pot of soup!

Melissa said...

All right. . .everyone who has posted on here HAS to give up their recipes! I'd love to have some new pumpkin recipes. . .so give em up! :)
That being said, I don't know that I have a favorite thing I bake in the fall. I love to bake anyways. . .so I guess it's more chocolate chip cookies for me. I do have my favorite candle to burn in the fall though. . .Mulled Cider from Gold Canyon Candles. Whenever I burn it, my boys tell me it smells like fall!
Love the stuff on your blog!

Cathy said...

Sweet candy! Sounds like life has a hold on you. You need to stand up and tell life that it is taking away from your FUN stamping time! I love homemade peach cobbler, apple pie that is warm with ice cream on top. Thanks for a chance at your sweet giveaway.

I love your cards that you share with all of us! You are so creative. My favorite fall baking item is my mom's apple dumplings with either vanilla or cinnamon ice cream on top. Yum!!

Plain and Simple said...

I love pumpkin roll. It is so good and moist with just a hint of sweetness. Mmmmm, my mouth is watering, I may have to see about making some.

Ghazal(ghazal_31005@yahoo.com) said...

WOW! Yummy comments!!!
Any thing apple or pumpkin would be my favorite. Love to see some fall recipes.

Angel said...

Oh man, I was just going to say my fave fall treat is Pumpkin Roll w/ cream cheese, but that's what someone else posted! It's still a fave, but a VERY close second would have to be Apple Crisp! Love those file folders you made!

Kathy T said...

Iced pumpkins muffins are my favorite this time of year - moist, spicey, slightly sweet... Hmmm, I can almost taste them now!!!

Kay said...

I like the smell of something spicy baking in the fall. Pumpkin is nice, but gingerbread is my favorite, with lemon sauce or whipped cream. Not the box kind, but made from scratch.

Linda SS said...

Yum...the flavors of Fall. My favorite is Zuchinni Bread. I also have a wonderful recipe for zuchinni chip cookies. Every year we love to go to a pumpkin patch here that makes fresh pumpkin donuts - there is nothing tastier than a bag of hot fresh donuts. No matter how many we buy, they are generally all gone before we get home with them:)

Chantelle said...

Apple pie and banana bread are my favourite!! But your pumpkin bread sounds really yummy. TFS. Great blog and idea's.

rebecca said...

I must have visited the same blog Pattyjo did. I love warm apple crisp, especially in the Fall and Winter. This is a good version, plus you make it in a crock pot and get to smell it all day. Thanks for letting me play along. Looking forward to the pumpkin bread recipe. I discovered pumpkin ice cream in the store yesterday, so am in heaven!!

Nutty Apple Streusel Dessert

6 c. sliced, peeled tart apples
1 1/4 tsps ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 c. milk
2 Tbs butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c. biscuit/baking mix

TOPPING:
1 c. biscuit/baking mix
1/3 c. packed brown sugar
3 Tbs cold butter
1/2 c. sliced almonds (I think I had walnuts, so used those)
Ice cream or whipped cream, optional

HOW TO: In a large bowl, toss apples with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Place in a greased 3-qt slow cooker. In a mixing bowl, combine the milk, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and baking mix. Spoon over apples.

For topping, combine biscuit mix and brown sugar in a bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Add almonds; sprinkle over apples. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until the apples are tender. (I think mine was done in 3-4 hours, so it may depend on your slow cooker). Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.

If any of you have a Great Harvest Bread Company in your area, reserve your pumpkin cream cheese roll now for the holidays! It's as good as homemade and a great substitute when you don't have time!

I am so ready for fall and to get rid of these 90'+ Texas temperatures!!!
