Fall Favorite Foods: Homemade Apple Pie

This is one of my favorite holiday desserts! I am a pie junkie. My favorites are apple, cherry, and chocolate pie. My kids love apple pie so I can’t wait to share this family favorite with you.

Homemade Apple Pie

Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Filling:

  • 8 cups cored, peeled, sliced apples (around 8; Granny Smith) 
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for top of crust
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • splash of water

 

Directions

[When ready, preheat oven to 375º F.]

In a food processor, using a metal blade, pulse your flour, sugar and salt together. Add in cold, cubed butter and pulse. Slowly drizzle in ice water, one tablespoon at a time. You should have a coarse, crumbly mixture. (If you don’t have a food processor, combine ingredients in a large bowl, using a pastry blender or a fork.)

Before the dough has formed a ball, remove the blade and take dough out, bringing it together by hand. Form the dough into a disc and wrap in saran wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. It’s very important to work with cold dough. In a large bowl, toss apples in lemon juice, flour, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside. Once dough is cold, take dough out of plastic wrap and divide in half. Return one half, in plastic wrap, to the fridge.

On a lightly floured surface, roll your 1/2 of dough out into a circle, 12-14 inches round, about 1/4-inch thick. Gently take the corners, lift the dough and transfer it to pie pan. Lightly press sides against the bottom and sides of pan. Trim overhanging dough so that you’re left with 1/2-inch and fold excess under the edge of the pan. Take second half of dough from fridge and repeat process of rolling it out to a 12-14-inch circle, 1/4-inch thick.

Pour apple mixture into pie pan and cover the top of apples with pats of butter. In a small bowl, beat your egg yolk and add a splash of water. Brush the edges of pan, covered by the dough, with egg mixture.

Cover the entire pie with remaining rolled out dough in a lattice pattern. Seal the edges of the pie by fluting the dough (stamping the dough with a fork or your fingers) around the edge of the pie pan. Brush egg mixture all over the top of crust and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 50 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.

Usborne Books

I’m so excited to start sharing with you all these wonderful new books that my kids are falling in love with! Today’s book I’m sharing with you is my daughter, Brooke’s favorite Usborne book.

Nibbles, The Book Monster

Nibbles the book monster is a cute, animated story about a little monster who eats his way through books. To share the cuteness, here is Usborne’s description.

“Nibbles is on the loose, and he’s chomping through all of your favorite fairy tales! With books within the book, Emma Yarlett’s utterly appealing artwork, and lots and lots of nibbled holes, this laugh-out-loud funny and ferocious charmer’s unstoppable appetite for the printed page will nibble a hole right through your heart.” -Usborne

My daughter loves this book so much! She memorized it after the first reading of the story. The detail and excitement throughout the story has children laughing in joy over the character. We absolutely love reading this book and sharing it with others.

The link above shows you how to get a copy for your little one too. Nibbles has a continued story with the book Nibbles the dinosaur guide.

Fall Food Favorites: Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie

Can anyone else believe that October is almost over? I certainly cannot! But I must say that I am in LOVE with the cooler weather here! With our crazy busy schedule, this recipe is a great recipe to throw into the oven and have ready a little while later. Today’s recipe I renamed to…

Cornbread Chicken Pot Pie

The original recipe I found online and was called Cornbread Chicken Casserole. I renamed it to something that made more sense to me. For this recipe you need the following things:

  • 3-4 Chicken breasts cooked and chopped
  • 1 bag Frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 can cream of chicken
  • 1 bag of sweet cornbread mix
  • Milk
  • Egg

How To Make It

I cook the chicken ahead of time and put it in the freezer. This is one of my meals that I will cook all of the meat on Sundays and then add it to the meal later in the week. It saves a lot of time! On the night I am cooking the meal, I throw the cooked chicken, cream of chicken, and frozen vegetables into a glass pie pan. Then I mix the cornbread mixture, following the package directions. (This is where the egg and milk come in). Then I pour the cornbread batter on top of the chicken mixture. Bake it at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until the cornbread is cooked thoroughly.

This recipe is so delicious! My kids hate casseroles but this one they love!

What’s Going On?!?

It’s hard to believe that it is already October. I have been so behind on writing and trying to keep up with everything. So what’s been going on in our lives?

School & Back to School Activities

All three kids are in school now. My girls go five days a week to Kindergarten. They absolutely LOVE being in school. This is their first year to be apart and have mixed feelings about this. It truly depends on the day as to whether or not they like being apart or wish to be together. I guess you could say we are still waiting on the official verdict of that.

With school being back in session that means back to school activities. My girls are both in a bible study once a week. This takes up an entire afternoon once a week but it is a wonderful experience for them. They have started soccer again so this takes up two afternoons a week with practice and Saturdays for the games.

On our off days its usually working on homework and taking some time to play after school. I have to be completely honest here. I thought that parents were a bit ridiculous when they said they enjoyed summer time when the kids were home. My kids fight when they are home so I couldn’t imagine them being home all day. I now retract that statement! My life has been overwhelmed with activities and I miss the easier days when they were less busy.

Mason is also in “school” twice a week. He seems to like it but is still a momma’s boy who would rather be at home. We attend a bible study together once a week as well.

Usborne Books

Another new adventure for me is that I became a consultant for Usborne Books and More last month. I decided to take this leap into direct sales for the books because I wanted the discount on books and the fun of sharing them with other moms. I love the books, love the parties, but it has been a big adjustment to my schedule. I have spent so much time advertising and working on networking that I have fallen behind on my other passions.

Remodel

The remodel that you have heard about all summer was finished the last week of September and turned over to us at that time. Unfortunately, it was not really finished. We had finishing touches that we had to make to the project and our contractor is not done. It’s the middle of October and we still need to finish the project. Currently it’s minor things on the inside that need to be done such as the door handles on the closets, the mirror in the bathroom, the shower door in the bathroom and furnishing the office. Those are minor things that we need to do and will not have our contractor work on. The biggest problem with our project is the external brick. The brick guys made a HUGE mistake on our brick when they installed. They let a guy they were training lay several bricks and did not correct his mistakes of uneven bricks. This caused the entire brick job to be crooked! So, they now have to come back, take the brick off the house, and then redo the brick. This means that we cannot put our fence back up until the brick is finished and it means more people in our backyard to fix this issue.

This project has given me a major headache and I am trying to not think about the drama.

Coming Up

I’m hoping to catch up on some past posts. I will be sharing with you my Usborne business along with fantastic books. I have some FANTASTIC fall recipes to share with you along with wonderful Young Living products. Be sure to check back for some great fall posts.

Fall Food Favorites: Chicken Tortilla Soup

Cooler weather always means my favorite soup, Chicken Tortilla Soup. This soup is one that my family gets excited for every single fall. As soon as the weather changes they are asking for Chicken Tortilla Soup. And yes, I’ve already made it once this season!

Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Ingredients

1/2 bag Frozen Corn

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

3 chicken breasts

1 can stewed tomatoes

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon paprika

1 l. chicken broth

Shredded Cheese (topping)

Chips

I add all of the ingridents into the crockpot and cook it on low for 8 hours. Then I shred the chicken and put it back into the soup. I top with chips and cheese to serve. Some people like sliced avocado on top. If you add something different to your soup, let me know in the comments below.

Picking Halloween Costumes

I still can’t believe it is already October. In our home that means Halloween Costumes. The girls are starting to show interest in picking their own costumes which is a bit scary to me. You never know what they are going to want for Halloween Costumes.

Luckily this year I was able to help them choose a costume. In past years I was very particular about picking out a costume that could be a dress up outfit as well. I hate to spend money on something that was only for one use. This year is not going to be any different. The girls have light up butterfly wings, tutus and leotards already. So I talked to them about being fairies for Halloween this year. I ordered embroidered flowers to sew on to the tutu and leotards to bring in the floral aspect. The leotards are black so I wanted to add color to bring the costume together. They have some wooden wands that they plan to carry as a fairy wand. I will create a fairy floral tiara.

For Mason, I chose for him to be a cowboy. We have chaps and a vest but they do not fit. So I ordered a cowboy costume off of Amazon. His costume will have a vest, chaps, bandana. I will add his cowboy hat and put everything over a long sleeve shirt, jeans, and boots. I can’t wait to see him in his little cowboy outfit! We went with this because it didn’t require a mask or hood. He doesn’t not like hats generally so he may not wear the cowboy hat. I’m hoping he will! The rest of the outfit is still recognizable without the hat which is why I went with it.

I’ll be posting pictures later when they are all dressed up.
