Tasty Tuesday #2

Today’s Tasty Tuesday spotlight is a SUPER SIMPLE delicious recipe from Tested, Proven, and Approved:

Apple Pie in the Apple

This photo is directly from the website, but I swear, when you make it yourself it will look this great!  I made this at home Saturday night.  It is fun to look at AND its delicious!  I love apple pie, and this version tastes great and makes a fantastic presentation!

For added fun, the website is in Portuguese, but it has a translator, so NO WORRIES!

Play around on Tested, Proven, and Approved, and you will find some deliciosas receitas (delicious recipes).



Tasty Tuesday

Someone asked me if I was going to add food to my blog, and while I wasn’t going to do this originally, I have decided to give it a try.  This will be just ONE day a week, only on Tuesdays.

My concern with adding food was that I really wanted things that inspired me to beautify my home.  HOWEVER, in talking about it I decided that adding food once a week would be fun for 2 reasons.  First of all because good food can inspire lively conversations, and conversations beautify my home!  Whether just family, or friends, and appetizers or entrees, food definitely inspires our lifestyle.  The second reason is that certain recipes always make me feel like we’re having a party!


For my first foody feature, I would like to spotlight Jenn from Peas and Crayons (www.peasandcrayons.com).  Her posts always feel like a party!

Jenn is not only an engaging blogger (& crafter), she is first and foremost an amazing FOODIE!  With a background in both art and dietetics, her recipes are works of ART and healthy, too (works of heART?)…

I don’t want to make this post too long, because I want you to go check out JENN’S BLOG and the RECIPE

But I have to tell you why I chose this recipe…  we were recently at a church luncheon and my 22 yo son and 14 yo daughter were DIPPING PRETZELS INTO THEIR PUMPKIN PIE!  And they insisted we go home and make some pumpkin pie and use it as dip…  I thought they were strange, until I remembered Jenn’s post.  HA, not that she is strange, but that she had created this amazing pumpkin dip.  And now I can tell you, it truly is AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS!!

PLEASE check out Jenn’s blog for this and other delicious recipes and fun stuff (plus a link party, too!)
