apple dumplings

Love this easy to make recipe for something so sweet and fall like as apple dumplings. I found this recipe on a great blog from tennessee check it out here

1 large Granny Smith apple
1 stick of margarine or butter
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of Sprite
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 can of crescent rolls

Peel and cut apple into eight equal pieces. Wrap each piece of apple in a crescent roll, starting at the large end of the roll. Mix the other ingredients and heat until sugar melts. Put crescent rolls with the apple in a 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with oil. Pour the liquid over the apples. Cook at 350° degrees until brown and bubbly (about 25 minutes). You will want to double this recipe because they will go fast! (I like to spoon some of the liquid over the rolls after they are done.)

The third one said, “Soon I’ll have scary eyes.”
The fourth one said, “I’ll have a candle light.”

I am so excited about the upcoming Happy Holidays giveaway hop. The hop is hosted by life with two boys and Mom Blog Society. Be on the lookout for more information


Do you have a fan of football in your family? I sure do and while they love to play football they can not always find time to participate as much as they would like to. That i why I love teenymates. With the world being such a busy place there are times when you may have just a few seconds to fool around and for any busy football player TeenyMates are perfect.
TeenyMates are 1-inch quarterbacks figures representing all of the major NFL teams that join the Lil’ Teammates family.
These tiny 1" tall, officially licensed NFL figures for any lover of football from ages 4 and up. Great for fun to play with as well as to collect and trade. Each foil pack of teenmates comes with 2 random quarterbacks and 2 puzzle pieces. This makes it a lot of fun to see what your next purchase will be. As a kid I can remember trading cards with friends Teenymates will provide the same fun and excitement in my opinion. 
There is a total of 32 NFL quarterbacks and 35 duble sided puzzle pieces. There are also 3 hard t find rare figures which include a throwback QB, a metallic gold QB and a glow in the dark QB. The double sided puzzle allows you to build either a cllector mini poster featuring all 32 QBs or a football field display set. 
Look for TeenyMates at Target, team shops, and sporting goods, gift and toy stores across the nation for a suggested retail price of $3.99 each.

Big Daddy Weave

autumn salad

whether you are in search of a salad recipe to serve with your fall inspired recipes or you are planning ahead to Thanksgiving you will love this recipe as the colors and flowers to me all say Autumn

Autumn Chopped Salad

*6 to 8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
*2 medium pears, chopped
*1 cup dried cranberries
*1 cup chopped pecans
*8 slices thick-cut bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
*4 to 6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
*Poppy seed Salad Dressing (I like T. Marzetti)
*Balsamic Vinaigrette (I like Newman’s Own Light Balsamic Vinaigrette)

On a large platter, combine the lettuce, pears, cranberries, pecans, bacon and feta cheese. Drizzle generously with poppy seed dressing, followed by some of the balsamic vinaigrette. (I would estimate that I used about a cup of dressing: 70 percent poppy seed dressing and 30 percent balsamic vinaigrette) If you prefer your salad to have more dressing, feel free to experiment with the combination.
