I am excited to write about all things I am passionate about...and some, well, that I may not be passionate about. But all things are happening in this LIFE. And, I want to document and have accountablity to living life with intention. And so it goes...

Apple Fritter Block Party

Call me impulsive. I checked here and saw the recipe for Apple Fritters and you guessed it, I high-tailed it down to the local food market and got me some Granny Smith apples. So what do you think the kiddos had for a snack on this beautiful 50 degree March afternoon??


Apple Fritters turned out really good. They are similar to New Year's Cookies that Steve's grandma makes, but with apples instead of raisins. My critics much prefer apples to the raisins as was evidenced by an inhalation of their snack today. Granted Apple Fritters have apples in them, I would not necessarily call them healthy, per se. Fried in oil and all, and then smothered in a donut type icing...uh, yeah. Therefore we made it a neighborhood block occasion and took some to our surrounding neighbors. We were NOT eating that whole batch although we could have...easily.


Definitely good. Definitely a keeper. Definitely a 5 smiley star. Definitely need my treadmill...

I made the apple dumplings today....if that doesn't make you want to get on the treadmill I don't know what will. Maybe a little too gooey for me but still delicious, definitely have to eat them fresh and warm when the top is still crispy.

Oh my goodness...you are quick! I saw that one today and it made my mouth water just reading the recipe :) between you and PW...I feel a rise in my blood glucose level coming on :)

Good to know, Kayla! I have been wanting to try the dumplings for awhile. They look so interesting and easy--with Mountain Dew? I can't wait to try them.

Dawn, I shudder to think of my blood glucose level yesterday... Neither of these apple recipes probably are as beneficial as just eating the darn apple! ;)
