I am so excited to be taking part in the second annual: Battle of the Pies with Wayfair.com! Today I will be sharing with you a delicious pumpkin fluff pie! It’s going to be your go-to pie for Holiday time and people won’t be able to get enough of it, believe me!
Well hello there! Boy, do I have a treat for you today!! If you’re anything like us you’re busy, busy in the Summer going to cookouts and looking for something yummy you can make! Today I’m sharing a very simple, light and delicious summer-time fruit salsa with homemade cinnamon sugar chips! Oh-my-yum!
I first made this recipe a few years ago for the first time, but not since. We were having a Memorial Day cookout with family and friends, so I decided to make it again! It’s a great alternative to fattening desserts, plus it’s light and fresh!
You’re going to need:
2 apples, peeled and diced
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 nectarines, diced
8 strawberries, diced
handful of blueberries, cut into fourths
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons fruit preserves (I used natural strawberry)
12 10″ flour tortillas
4 tablespoons melted better
cinnamon sugar mixture
It’s really quite simple, begin preparing your fruits and putting them into a glass bowl. Dice everything pretty small since you’re going for a salsa consistency! Next mix in your white and brown sugar and preserves. Let chill for at least 30 minutes before serving (I made mine the day before, so it sit over night).
For your homemade tortilla chips, grab a tortilla and brush with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, flip over and repeat on the other side. Using a pizza cutter, slice the tortillas to your desired chip size. Do this for the remaining tortillas. Cook for 8 minutes, until lightly brown and slightly crispy. Let cool completely before serving.
Another thing I love about this recipe is it’s super fun and easy for the kids to help make! My little one had a lot of fun helping Mommy in the kitchen, and she did a great job brushing on the butter and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar! Not to mention, she loved telling everyone that she made it all by herself 😉
Don’t be surprised if you are asked numerous times for the recipe 😉 We will certainly be making this one again! I hope you enjoy!

If you’re anything like me, you have a sweet tooth! It’s just one of those things that sometimes, you have to give in to 😉 As we all know, sweets can be fattening and unhealthy. As I have been watching what I eat, I was really craving puppy chow. I knew how fattening and unhealthy that was… So I came up with a much healthier alternative. And quite honestly, I think it tastes better than the original.

Let me start off by saying this recipe is NOT diet friendly, but it is sooo tasty! A few weeks back we enjoyed a relaxing dinner at my in-laws. My mother-in-law baked a deeelicious apple crisp for dessert and I was quickly asking for the recipe! Lucky for you, I’m sharing it today (wink!)
If you haven’t been already, plan a fun afternoon to go apple picking with the family to gather some of the delicious fruit for this recipe! For this recipe I used gala apples, but any kind will do!
Begin by slicing your apples, I use an apple slicer which makes this part a breeze! If you prefer, peel your apples too, I leave mine on 🙂 Add the apples to a mixing bowl and sprinkle with the lemon juice to keep them from browning. Next add sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon and apples, mix well. Pour this mixture into a buttered 9×13 casserole dish. In a separate mixing bowl mix together the melted butter, flour, white & brown sugar and oatmeal, mix thoroughly and add to the apple mixture as the topping. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Let cool at least 10 minutes before serving. To really top this delicious dessert off, add a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, mmm mmm!
Do you have a favorite family apple crisp recipe? If so, I’d love to hear it so please share 🙂

Who doesn’t love a good apple pie?! Well today I felt brave enough to attempt one by scratch. Yes, that’s right, I didn’t use a recipe and it turned out delicious!! Last Fall we went to our local fruit farm (Lynd’s) and picked way too many apples, so I froze some in our deep freezer. I went to the basement two days ago and brought them up to thaw. They felt a little mushy but perfect for cooking!
Here’s what you’re going to need:
- pre-made pie crust- 2 rolls
- at least six cups of sliced apples
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- a pinch of salt
- a dash of cinnamon
- 5 tablespoons of flour
- 2 tablespoons stick butter
- caramel sauce for drizzle
One of my favorite things about Fall is all the yummy food! I love to cook and bake, and this past weekend I decided I’d give a tasty recipe I found a try! Pumpkin crumb cake, hello! Here’s what you’re going to need :
