Caramel Apple Cupcakes

Caramel Apple CupcakesIt is time for The Secret Recipe Club

Yes, I know how time flies, and must say this is the quickest I have ever made my chosen selection. I was assigned From Chapelhill to Chickenville this time around, and I think I made my assignment about two days later. After reading through every single recipe I finally decided to give these Caramel Apple Cupcakes a try. They were delicious! Even my husband, a I would rather have chips than a dessert sort of guy, really liked them. I tried to whip that icing up into a frosting but mine still turned into more of a glaze but hey that was one yummy glaze and the caramel portion of this recipe makes your house smell divine. All my kids came in from the park proclaiming the house smelt like Christmas. Make these, enjoy these, I highly recommend!

Caramel Apple Crisp

Caramel Apple CrispLast night we had the absolute pleasure of reconnecting with an old friend. A lovely evening was spent catching up, and eating. For dinner we had BBQ Beef Sandwiches, Roasted Potatoes, and Caesar Salad. This gem was for dessert. It wasn’t chocolate, so obviously not my very favorite dessert, but as fruity desserts go it was pretty darn good!

Recipe from Betty Crocker

  • 6 Cups peeled and sliced apples
  • 1/2 cup caramel sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2/3 cup oats

1. Mix together the apples, caramel sauce and cinnamon, place in an ungreased 8 inch square baking pan.

2. Using the same bowl, mix together the flour and brown sugar, cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in oats. Pour on top of apple mixture.

3. Bake for 45  minutes at 375 degrees.

4. Eat and enjoy!

Caramelized Apple Grilled Cheese

Apple Cheese SandwichIt is time for another Crazy Cooking Challenge and this month it is Grilled Cheese Sandwiches!

We usually have the standard Kraft singles grilled cheese served with Campbell’s tomato soup. A combo that just can’t be beat! However, now that I have found this gem of a recipe from a wonderful blog Closet Cooking I may have to change my tune. I didn’t really realize that there were so many grilled cheese options out there, sure I like to melt a little smoked gouda once in a while, occasionally I have dabbled in havarti with jalapeno, however Kevin really has mastered the grilled cheese! Go check out his site for oodles of grilled cheese (and other) amazing recipes! Here is the one I chose because it just looked plain delicious!

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  •  1 tablespoon brown sugar
  •  1 dash of cinnamon
  •  1 apple (peeled, cored and sliced)
  • 2 thick slices of good cheddar cheese
  •  2 slices of good bread
  •  1 tablespoon butter

1. In small skillet melt butter and add brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook until brown and bubbly. Add apples and cook for about 5 minutes.

2. Spread each bread slice with 1/2 Tbsp of butter, assemble sandwich butter side down on skillet, top with one slice cheese, apple mixture, second slice cheese, and bread with butter on outside.

3. Cook over medium heat, flip when first side is golden brown, continue cooking until second side is golden brown.

4. Eat and enjoy!

Thank you Kevin for all the wonderful recipes! (Especially this one)
