Cider Donuts

The holidays are almost here. It’s a time for family and friends and a time when all our seasonal foods come together.

I recently bought a donut pan. All autumn I’ve been wanting to make cider donuts, but I’ve been so busy with everything else that I haven’t had a chance. Well, this morning I finally did!

I used this recipe with some substitutes. I was so happy to find something that didn’t use any eggs because I just ran out. They were just perfect for this season.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🙂

Christmas And Fiesta Friday

Happy Friday, Everyone!

In light of the Christmas season, I’ve decided to post a little extra this month. It should be filled with baked goods and candies, maybe some decorating or projects as well!

I’ve decided to participate in Fiesta Friday this week. Jhuls from The Not So Creative Cook invited me to join in on the fun last month, and I’ve been waiting for a good time to begin! This seems like as good a time as any whereas I’ve been so busy throughout the month of November that I haven’t had the chance yet!

So, in preparation for Fiesta Friday, I made these cinnamon apple cookies last night! Then proceeded to enjoy them with a warm mug of hot chocolate, which made for the perfect cozy evening.

The recipe still needs a bit of tweaking, but I’ll be sure to post it after I’ve experimented a bit more!

Have a great weekend! I’ll see you Monday, or perhaps a bit sooner on Facebook.

Cinnamon Apple Pork Chops

Happy  Thursday, everyone!

As promised, today I have the recipe for cinnamon apple pork chops.

My husband and I both loved it, though we realized as we sat down to eat that neither one of us likes cooked apples. A fact we had known previously, but I suppose conveniently forgot because they sounded good at the time. (Kind of inconvenient because I made an apple crisp for dessert. We ate it anyway. With some amazing ice cream!)

That being said, I missed yet another year of apple picking this year. Which I was really disappointed about. My husband’s never been, and I’ve missed three years now. Oh well, hopefully next year!

I served the pork chops with my autumn rice which you can find here along with a brown sugar acorn squash. I also forgot the squash the night of the pork chops. So sad. It was still a good meal though!

And the pork chops were even more amazing leftover when I sliced them and fried them with the apples to reheat them! Caramelized brown sugar, yum!

Here’s the recipe, I hope you enjoy!
