it's fall...

Hi all!!
I hope you had a Marvelous weekend!!! My computer is having some issues, so she is going to the doctor today for a check up...I hope she isn't going to be gone long!!!! Let me say...I have sure missed having her over the weekend!!! Luckily I have my backup laptop *smile*



I don't know about you...but I still cannot believe that it is October!!!

I don't have very many Halloween stamp sets, but decided to pull out the I had and get a start on my Halloween stamping.

Since I don't have access to my desktop~I will have to post my family room decor' project later this week (hopefully I well get her (computer) back soon).

While I was visiting my mom in CT a couple of weeks ago, she made a yummy apple cake that I remember having when I was younger...so I whipped one up over the weekend~it was delish and put me in the "fall" mood (even though the temps here in AZ are still in the triple digits).

Here is the recipe if you'd like to give it a try...(it is NOT Weight Watcher friendly!!!).

Yummy Apple Cake
4-6 apples (peeled and sliced) any kind except delicious
3 C flour
2 C sugar
1C oil
4 lg eggs
2 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C orange or pineapple juice

combine apples w/ 5 Tblsps sugar and 2 Tblsps cinnamon. combine eggs and sugar; beat until smooth and creamy. add vanilla and oil; beating slightly. combine dry ingredients; add alternately with juice. mix until creamy. using a tube or bundt pan (well greased); place layer of batter, then apples, repeat ending with apples.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 min, reduce heat to 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 min or until done.

Enjoy!!
