Throwback Thursday: The Apple Edition


On Thursdays we recap a blog post or two sharing something from the past.  Today is one of those days…Throwback Thursday.

My apple tree is loaded with apples.  It’s time to dig out some recipes.  I’m guessing some of you are in the same situation so I thought I’d share some of my apple recipes on this rendition of Throwback Thursday.

A standard favorite around here that came from Hubby’s mom is Apple Crisp.  Hubby and the boys here love it.  Find the recipe here.  Grandma used to always make it when we came.


This apple salad will only use up a couple apples but it’s one of the more healthy recipes on the blog.  You can find the recipe here.

German Apple Cake is next up.  This recipe came from The Mississippi Valley Quilters cookbook.  It was yummy.  You can find the recipe here.


German Apple Rolls are a HUGE favorite.  I can’t get them to last much more than a day around here.  I might as well just make two batches at once.  Here is the recipe.


This Swedish Crustless Apple Pie is about the quickest recipe of the bunch..and good too.  Now that it is mainly Hubby and I around to eat, this is nice as it doesn’t make a large amount.


I for sure want to make a batch or two of this yet this fall….  Apple Pie Jam.  It honestly make toast taste like apple pie.  YUM.  Here’s the link.



I stumbled upon the recipe and love it.  This is a hearty cake more like carrot cake… Butterscotch Apple Cake.  You can find the recipe here.


This one might be Hubby’s favorite of the bunch…  Sour Cream Apple Pie.  You can find the recipe here.


Then there is my quilt…Criss Cross Applesauce.  That’s probably my favorite “apple recipe” on the blog.  You can find it here.

This quilt is really the family favorite.  Being it’s made with all recycled fabrics it is super soft.  I also used Hobb’s 80/20 for the quilting so it’s even softer.

Well…I am off to mow lawn.  I hope that task will end soon…then to pick apples.  I think supper time will include a Sour Cream Apple Pie.  I have LOTS of apples so if any of you have a recipe to share, I’d love to give it a try.

Throwback Thursday: Some Favorite Recipes


Each Thursday we pick an old blog post and retell about it…thus Throwback Thursday.

With all the work we’ve  been doing on the house meals times here get pretty late…and unfortunately, somewhat chaotic.  I had been in a good routine of making the food ahead and then throwing it in the over once we’re home…then I lost the battle and we ended up at the local bar and grill for supper a couple nights in a row.  That’s when I knew it was time to scroll back through the blog and pull up some make ahead foods.

I’m guessing with the start of school and the upcoming harvest season, many of you might benefit from the same recipes so I decided to feature a few of those recipes on Throwback Thursday.

This is Mexican Tortilla Omelets.  We eat these any time of day.  You can find the recipe here.


Chicken Tortilla Soup.  Just make the soup ahead of time.  Put it in the crock pot on warm.  When it’s time to eat, scoop it up, cut up a tortilla to put on top and sprinkle with a little cheese.  Hubby is a big eater so I give him a sandwich to go with it.  You can find the recipe here.

My Beef Stew recipe is made in a crock pot so it’s always a great option when I need a meal to cook on it’s own.  You can find it here.

Beef Enchiladas always go over great here.  The thing I love about this recipe is that I make two pans at once.  One to eat now…and one for the freezer.  (which reminds me, I have a batch in the freezer-supper tonight I guess).  I love pulling one out of the freezer for those days when I know it’s going to be hectic.  The recipe can be found here.


With cabbages in the garden that need to get used up, this recipe is soon going to be on my table again, Potato Cabbage Soup with Ham.  Any soup recipes are awesome for convenience, they can be made one day and warmed for a meal the next.  By adding some fruit or a grill cheese sandwich, meals can come together quickly.  You can find the recipe here.

There are many more recipes on the website that work well for quick meals as that is typically my meal time style….hearty food, fast.  I hope you get a chance to try one or two of these….right now, I am off to pick a cabbage.  Writing this post has me hungry for soup.
