All righty guys, who is ready for some fantastic book recommendations?? I don't know about you all but as soon as the weather starts to even have the hint of coolness (or in the case this year, the weather is still very warm but Starbucks has released their Pumpkin Spice Lattes), all I want to do is hibernate with my books and my coffee the rest of the winter.
Sometimes I am very envious of bears and their caves.
But, enough talk! On to the books!!
Every year, like clockwork, I always get the urge to go re-read this amazing book by Francine Rivers. The Atonement Child is an incredible story of redemption, forgiveness and a girl coming to know exactly who Jesus is. Such a beautifully written story! I can't recommend this enough.
Jenny B. Jones is a hilarious writer and her book Save the Date is no exception! I loved this romance and I know y'all will too. It's the perfect thing to read while snuggled up under a blanket and drinking something hot and sweet. :)
And it's almost exactly a month from this book's release date... ;)
Yay! I do hope you'll join me for more of Paige, Luke and Tyler in Paige Rewritten!
Tonight I'm really wanting something apple-y and fall-y and sweet, so I think I'm going to dig up our old fall favorite and make our infamous That Apple Thing! Here's the recipe for anyone who wants to make a truly easy and totally amazing dessert! I might even whip up a quick powdered sugar and milk icing to drizzle over the top. :)
That Apple Thing
1 can of
Pillsbury Crescent Roll Creations (this is just a can of crescent
rolls, but they aren't perforated. Makes it a lot easier)
1 Granny Smith apple
3 heaping tbsp butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp sugar mixed with 1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
the apple finely and dump it, the butter, brown sugar and 1 tsp
cinnamon into a saucepan. Mix together on medium-high heat until apple
Roll out the crescent rolls sheet (if you're using
just regular crescents, just mash the perforations together). Spread the
apple mixture on it almost up to all the edges. Then quickly roll up
from the short side, pinching all of the edges together so you've got a
little log of deliciousness.
Brush the top and sides with a
little of the egg and then sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mix over the top.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Enjoy! What are your book recommendations?? And do you have any tried and true fall recipes??
