I posted this dessert topping recipe over on You Are My Fave a little while ago (like a year ago), but thought I’d share it again here as we’re getting into apple picking time and I’m sure a lot of you are wondering what to do with those huge bags of apples you picked.
This is a really easy, and really delicious addition to any dessert. It would taste really great on a cheesecake or ice cream, or maybe just rolled into a warm tortilla mmmm.
Apple Dessert Topping:
- 4 Apples, cubed
- 10 Tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- dash of nutmeg
- 4 Tablespoons flour
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1. Melt butter in medium sized saucepan
2. In a small bow mix together all dry ingredients.
3. Stir the cubed apples into the dry mixture.
4. Add apple mixture to the butter once it’s melted and stir, add vanilla.
5. Let simmer on low heat for 20-30 minutes.
We have a bed, we have closets!! (I’ll post some pictures tomorrow once they’re more put together) The next step is filling in the room with some lighting. We have a golden flying saucer light on the ceiling (very 80′s and nothing next to our beds. We have one table lamp in the room that we turn on at night when we go up to bed but that’s it. I’ve been scouring the internet for some dreamy, yet affordable options and here’s what I’ve narrowed it down to. What do you like best?

Our bedroom is a disaster. Seriously, a cluster cuss. Our office is in there and we have only one tiny closet to share between the two of us so all of our clothes are on clothing racks or in a dresser that’s too big for our bedroom. Our kids come in all the time mess with everything and make it feel even more messy. It’s time to change things. I have plans. I need a place that’s peaceful and organized and more serene. Chad needs the kids to stop touching his stuff and so do I. When we moved in (not that long ago, I know) we decided we wouldn’t really put any effort into our bedroom. But I can’t deal with the chaos any more. Time for a solution.
Here’s my inspiration:
Neutral tones with a rustic, but modern feel.
We need some pictures up on our walls. There’s nothing for poor Chad to look at in there except my ugly mug. Closets!! Built in PAX wardrobes from IKEA, which is what we’re going to go with. A bedside table! We’ve had nothing since we moved. Everything just gets tossed on the floor next to the bed…and then subsequently stolen or stepped on by children.
Here’s the progress so far: Closet building materials have been purchased, the giant dresser has been sold (which means all of our clothes are now on the floor, and I bought a new bed, something I’ve been dreaming about for 5 years. I’m excited for everything to come together in the next couple of weeks!
I’m on the hunt for some nice rustic picture frames, anyone have a good source?
