Can you believe the Holidays are almost here? And you know what that means. It means shopping, baking, cooking, and most importantly getting together with the ones you love.
Well, here we are, another Lucky Leaf giveaway and more yumminess being whipped up in the kitchen.
The folks at Lucky Leaf sent me a really cute baking kit, which included the sweetest little ceramic pie bird and of course delicious pie fillings. I can never have enough and always have cans in my pantry.
From the recipes included in the kit, I picked, or rather the family immediately picked the Caramel Apple Pie. Can't get more American than Apple Pie right?
Oh my, this was delicious, my brother enjoyed a big slice before heading off to work and my sister in law even had two slices, it was that good.
