Whats For Dinner Next Week 9-24-17

Fall is officially here and we are beginning to really enjoy some of the fall days. It is hard to believe that with all the rain that we have had we are currently under a burn ban so no fires in the fire pit just now. That means no S'mores after the game on Friday night. I really enjoy planning a fall menu and looking for a way to enjoy those warm cozy spices of the season.

Parmesan Crusted Potatoes With Sour Cream Sauce

One of our favorite sides for a grilled steak is a great baked potato piled high with sour cream, cheese and chopped green onions. I decided to create a whole new potato side and this one is delicious. The potatoes are covered in a cheesy crust that has just the right seasons. They are crusty on the outside and soft and full of flavor on the inside. Then we are topping it with a kicked up Sour Cream Sauce. We love this new potato side and will be serving it many times in the future.

Maple Pork Loin Roast With Apples and Vegetables

I like to have a very special one pot meal that we can enjoy as a family and when we have guest. This recipe for Maple Pork Loin Roast has a fabulous flavor and the apples and vegetables just complete the maple flavor. I made a gravy from the cooking liquid that is almost like a creamy dessert, just delicious. We loved the recipe and I sure hope that you and your family will enjoy it!

Whats For Dinner Next Week 9-17-17

We are having a beautiful week here at the cottage. I have been collecting dried Zinnia's for next years flowers, we love our Zinnia's. I am working on my screen porch today, watching the birds, little squirrels and making my meal plan for the next week. I recently did the pantry and freezer inventory for fall, so I know what I have on hand. We also just recently went on our monthly shopping trip for basic staple replacement. All this preparation makes it much easier to make my meal plans and the meal plans save me time and money. We are getting into the busy fall season when our meal plans really pay off in saving time.

Apple Doodle Cupcakes With Caramel Frosting

We love Snickerdoodles here at the cottage, it is one of the more popular cookies with our family. I have been working on this cupcake recipe and have developed it around our love for the Snickerdoodle cookies. The cupcakes have the wonderful flavor of a Snickerdoodle with little bites of apple, then topped with a rich caramel frosting. These cupcakes will be a favorite here!

I had a very interesting experience getting these special cupcakes to this point. You will have to read the little story about the "Cupcake Journey".
