Apple Crisp for anytime

I love easy recipes.  Don't get me wrong, I love to cook and "experiment" with new or different recipes and ingredients, but simple easy to make is overall the best.

If you are an apple lover, like my hubby, you will just love this one.  I can see this one being made weekly during the upcoming Fall season.

Yield: 6
Serving Size: ½ cup


  • 4 apples, peeled & cored
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ tbsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup old-fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ½ tbsp. Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning Blend
  • ½ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • ½ cup nuts, chopped
  • ½ cup butter, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. Assemble Mandolin with circular knob set to 4 and triangular knob set to “lock”.
  3. Attach apple to food guider and slide down Mandolin to slice. Repeat with remaining apples until all apples have been sliced.
  4. Place sliced apples in medium bowl, toss with lemon juice, seasoning blend, sugar and flour.
  5. In small bowl, combine all topping ingredients and mix well.
  6. Place sliced apples in UltraPro 2-Qt. Square Pan, sprinkle with topping evenly. 
  7. Bake 20 minutes or until apples are cooked through and crisp is golden brown.
If you would like any of the Tupperware pieces noted here, or if you want to see what is new at Tupperware (and yes so much more than those Burp Bowls of old) you can always check out my Tupperware Site any time of day or night.

Where you want to be

These were good examples of those "aha" moments for me.

And then when you think that its been enough "time" ....

It's then that when you look back and think about all the things that you went through or accomplished to be just where you wanted to be you can pat yourself on the back because

  • You have survived
  • You have gone through a ton
  • You survived
  • You accomplished a lot
  • You made it!

Now lets set our sights on where we want to be so that we will know when we have arrived.

#SHIKSHOOK Premium Cocktail Shaker Set

To keep big brother happy
I received this product for free to facilitate my review, in exchange for my honest opinion. I will only highlight products that I feel will be of benefit to or enjoyed by my readers. For more information regarding product review, please refer to my media kit.

The Shikshook Premium Cocktail Shaker is just a really nice set to have on anyone's bar. 

I was really very surprised with all the things that are available in the set.
It all fit in one relatively small box, but the shaker is anything but small!
The shaker is 25 oz with a built in stainer.

Inside this velvet sleeve, is everything you need to create some awesome drinks.

Believe it on not inside this sleeve is: 
  • 25 oz Cocktail Shaker
  • Double Jigger (1/2 & 1 oz size)
  • 2 high quality pourers

Oh and if you aren't a past Bartender,
you also get 100 cocktail recipes in a great e-book.

Shikshook Premium Cocktail Shaker Set
I really like this set.  
It is dishwasher safe, really easy to take care of because of it being made of Stainless Steel and has a Lifetime Guaranty.

I can see this sitting proudly on anyone's bar or you can use the velvet sleeve for storing away.  But it really is a nice shiny shaker, so I personally wouldn't be storing it away -- I will keep mine out and ready to use any time we want to check out some more of those 100 cocktail recipes!

I hope you will check it out.  
It would make a great gift too!

I did receive this product for free or at a steep discount as part of the Tomoson.com review program from Shikshook in exchange for my honest review.  Regardless, I never recommend anything that I don't feel would be of benefit to my readers.

Are You Having a Rough Day Today?

We all have bad days.  
Days where we just have no idea why we were even put on this Earth.
I'm sure you know what I mean.  
I don't think anyone is immune.

When I saw this I just had to share.
Hopefully it will give you a little more "insight" when those feelings hit.

So, no matter how bad of a day you are having .. Please Don't Give Up!
The answer, your reason, could be right around the corner.

Stop doing these things TODAY

This one I really like.
Sometimes I admit, they are very very difficult to stop.
It may be, at least in the beginning, something that you need to remind yourself of EVERY day.  Yes it is that important.

Shall we agree to start stopping these things TODAY?

Easy Fruity Cobbler

Want to talk about super super easy, this is it.
Ok so you end up with a visit from someone (maybe a mother in law) for coffee but you don't have anything to go with that coffee. Here is something to save your visit.

This one is so easy but tastes so good .... go to your pantry and pick up these "normal" pantry items and you will have a really nice dessert, or something special to go with coffee without breaking a sweat!

Fruity Oatmeal Cobbler


  • 12 oatmeal cookies
  • 1 can (21 oz.) pie filling, any flavor

  1. Crumble 8 of the oatmeal cookies in the bottom of the UltraPro 3.7-Qt Casserole Pan with Cover.
  2. Pour pie filling on top of crumbled cookies and spread evenly.
  3. Crumble remaining 4 cookies on top.
  4. Bake with Cover in the microwave on high for 8 minutes.
  5. Use the Ice Cream Scoop and serve with vanilla ice cream.
I love the UltraPro by Tupperware.  I use mine all the time for all kinds of things from dinner to dessert, some so easy its almost not really needing a "recipe",  just like this.

Want your own UltraPro?  Check it out on my Tupperware Site.

Just let go and See what happens

I saw this on a friends Facebook Page, thanks Janna, and knew it needed to be shared here.

Sometimes we get all caught up in what is going on around us or what we want to happen and we forget that not everything needs to be planned.

For me ... this is one of the most difficult things to do.
Not so much "planning" but just sitting back and "seeing what happens".

How about you?
Is this easy for you to do?
