Well is still doesn’t feel like fall here in Florida, but I am going to bake like it is. If nothing else I’ll be ready when the weather finally cooperates and cools down. This recipe is another take on an Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. I made one earlier in the summer with blueberries and it quickly turned into the hottest recipe of the summer for me. I love the addition of fruit to this cake as it takes away some of overly sweet taste this cake can have.
Apple Pie Jam
This apple pie jam tastes like apple pie on a spoon, it’s full of apple and cinnamon. It’s perfect on toast or hot biscuits in the morning. I even have a plan to use it with a cookie recipe I am working on.
I sure hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. I ate over at a friends house and we had mango salsa on hot dogs and it was amazing! I was a little dubious at first at a fruit topping on a hot dog but by gosh it works! I’ll share that recipe with you one day this week. It may just be may favorite new way to eat a hot dog. We also had a new cocktail that was really good made with hibiscus tea and tequila that was excellent.
Turkey Taco Salad is made with ground turkey and cannelloni beans, topped with romaine, roasted corn, tomatoes, red onion and a spicy sour cream dressing. Everyone I know is on a diet and we had a party to go to the other day so I decided to see if I could make this salad a little healthier than it normally is. This one is loaded with fresh veggies and I served the chips on the side so it was up to you how much you used or didn’t use. I also a can of cannelloni beans to the turkey and love them in the mix. I forgot the fresh cilantro I had bought to go with the vegetables and remembered on the way to the party.
Beef Roll Ups
This is a recipe my family has made forever. It is an easy to do recipe and can be done in the crock pot if you wanted also. I used a top sirloin steak today to make these but a round steak is a great cut for these, just increase the cooking time a little. The kids will love them because they are a finger food with the toothpicks in them to keep them round.
