The fall season is here, and holidays are just around the corner.  For me, this means the season of good eats and sweet treats is upon us!  But when you’re a wife and mom, you usually don’t get to just enjoy the treats around you, you also have to come up with your own dessert ideas to bring for functions.

Whenever it’s time for Thanksgiving and Christmas parties, I’m usually tasked with bringing desserts. (And I’m okay with this, because desserts are my favorite recipes to make!)  But if your family participates in a lot of activities, you may find yourself in a pinch for a quick dessert recipe!  School and church parties, fall festivals, and school fundraisers (like a bake sale or cake walk) are just a few events I can think of where you may need to bring a dessert, and I’m sure you can think of many more!

Valentine’s Day is this weekend! Will you be eating something sweet with your honey?  I used to love Valentine’s Day for the heart-shaped boxes of chocolates it would ultimately bring to me, but since I already have a supply of chocolate (including some left over truffles from Christmas), Valentine’s Day now puts me more in the mood for a baked delight.  If you’re looking for something sweet to serve your honey this Valentine’s Day, but you don’t want to spend all day long in the kitchen, look no farther!  I have the perfect recipe for you: Caramel Apple Dumplins!

This dessert is an old-time classic favorite, and it is so warm and comforting to eat during the fall and winter months.  And beyond that, this version is oh-so-easy and made with ingredients that a lot of you likely already have on hand!  (That’s my favorite kind of recipe!)  Check it out!
