One of my favorite pie fillings are Lucky Leaf, matter of fact they're the only ones I buy and thankfully I've been blessed to be able to review a lot of products for the Lucky Leaf Brand.
Just a few weeks ago I was contacted again and asked if I wanted to try some recipes and give my opinion on my favorite recipe. Here is what it said:
Lucky Leaf has some exciting news for you. We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with Better Homes & Gardens to select the three winning recipes from our Made with Love Recipe Contest this year. The grand prize winner is Greg F. and his delicious Pork Chops in Apple Jalapeno Barbeque Sauce recipe. The runners up are Nadine M. and her Lemon Bar Blackberry Trifle, and Lindsay W. with her Harvest Apple Ice Cream with Warm Salted Caramel recipe.
So far, I've only tried one and I don't know how the others will fare because truthfully we are not a fan of Pork Chops with any kind of apples so my family has informed me that they're not interested in trying that one....I will let you know about the Lemon Bar Blackberry Trifle next.....but this first one, oh my....., little did I know that this would become one of my favorite ice cream flavors EVER, hands down, I'm actually enjoying a bowl as I type this.....amazing.
