Chocolate Apple Pie #Choctoberfest

It is the perfect time of year to load up on apples… and this week is also #Choctoberfest, which means that it is also the perfect time of year to load up on chocolate. So… why not a recipe that combines both? My version of Chocolate Apple Pie is based on a recipe from from […]

Applesauce Spice Cakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These spice cupcakes are one of my all-time favorite desserts of all time. When we were picking wedding cupcake flavors, I instantly know that this needed to be one of the options (my husband Jeffrey chose red velvet with white chocolate buttercream, and we also did a lemon cupcake for good measure). Here’s a photo […]

Apple Cinnamon Sangria

It’s the perfect time of year for sangria! Most people think of sangria as a summery drink, but the truth is that you can tailor your sangria to the season by using different fruits, spices, wines, and alcohols. How about a nice apple cinnamon punch for the holidays? Added bonus: it looks really pretty on […]

Easy Apple Tart with Toasted Pecans

Fall is here and so is apple season. There are so many great kinds of apples available for eating and baking. Here at The PinterTest Kitchen, we like to make apple crisp, applesauce pancakes, apple pear scones, caramel apple cookies… pretty much anything with apple in it! We posted a huge list of apple recipes […]

An Apple (or Two) a Day – 60+ Sweet & Savory Yummy Applelicious Recipes

Usually, around the first of the month, I post a meal plan to give you lots of yummy ideas for those nights when you just don’t know what to make for dinner. This month, I wanted to try something a little different. I know, I know, pumpkin spice everything is invading our lives. And hey, […]

Caramel Apple Cookies

Okay, time for a truth bomb: While we love pumpkin here on The PinterTest Kitchen (so much we did an entire pumpkin recipe round-up last year), that is not the top flavor of fall for me. In fact, I put it third on the list, behind my two favorites, tied for first place: apple and […]

Apple Pear Scones

Every home chef has to have at least a couple of recipes up their sleeve that never fail to impress. We become known for these recipes, and when all else fails, we can whip up a batch and all else is forgiven, no matter how crispy and black dinner may be. For me, that “up […]

Chunky Applesauce Cinnamon Pancakes

I was looking around for something different to make for breakfast that didn’t involve a whole lot of extra ingredients and time. Sometimes you get sick of the usual eggs, toast or cereal. I came across a Taste of Home recipe for Cinnamon Applesauce Pancakes, which I pinned. It looked simple to make and had […]

Cookies! Cookies! Cookies! Apple Toffee Pudding Cookies

Well it is that time of year when we think the most about cookies. If you are like me you are busy baking your holiday cookies. One of my favorites parts of the holidays is getting out my many recipes and choose what I want to bake for the year. I also like to look […]

Fancy Mac and Cheese with Apples

I love mac and cheese. Not the crappy boxed stuff that I liked when I was a kid…real, adult mac and cheese. Okay, I still eat the crappy boxed stuff from time. But I drink wine when I do, so that makes up for it, right? Anyway, when I saw this pin, a recipe originally […]

Crockpot Apple Honey Pork Loin

Pork recipes make me happy. Apple recipes make me happy. So what could be better than a recipe that combines the two? And as you may know if you’re a regular reader, I love easy peasy recipes that I can get ready in the morning, stick in the crockpot, and forget about until dinnertime. So, […]

Pinter-Mess: Apple Cider Caramels

I love apple cider. I love caramels. So why not try a recipe that combines the two? I had really high hopes for these apple cider caramels. I attempted making them a few days before my Christmas party last year, to serve to my guests. Let’s just say it’s a good thing I made so […]
