My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Caramel Apple Dip

{ Prep Time: 5 mins / Difficulty: Super Easy! / Yields 8-10 servings }

8 oz light cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup peanuts, for garnish
4-6 granny smith or Cortland apples (any tart, firm apple will work)
Strawberries, or other fruits of your choice (optional)

1. With a hand mixer, beat the first 4 ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth. Chop peanuts in a food processor and sprinkle on top of dip right before serving. Slice up apples and use for dipping. To prevent apples from turning brown rather quickly, sprinkle with 1-2 Tbsp of lemon juice.
**This recipe can be prepared as an appetizer or a dessert!**
