Mini Apple Cranberry Popovers

I am feeling inspired by the crisp fall days and the cozy housewarming smell of apples and cranberries simmering on the stove. I need to create a nice brunch sweet for our ladies Christmas brunch at my church. I think that these warm, sweet, tart, fluffy mini apple cranberry popovers are just the perfect thing to bring!



Making these popovers in muffin makes these the perfect size, and brimming with the sweet apple cranberry filling these mini apple cranberry popovers will look festive on display at the Christmas brunch. When these popovers cool a bit I dust them with powdered sugar for a sweet finishing touch and I serve them alongside {homemade maple syrup} that can be drizzled over top.
Do you enjoy crepes? This apple cranberry filling is great in this {crepe recipe}!

Why Now Is The Perfect Time Of Year For Swim Lessons:

Why Now Is The Perfect Time Of Year For Swim Lessons:

I want my kids to enjoy all the fun you can have in the water, but do it safely. I have put swim lessons high on my list when my kids reach the proper age. I was going to do it in the summer, but then a good friend suggested I think about having the kids take lessons in the fall. After I gave it some thought, it made a lot of sense.

Toffee Hot Chocolate

There is no cozier feeling then curling up with a warm mug of hot chocolate after being out in the cold. Each year we create mason jar gifts to give out to the teachers, coaches, and instructors in our lives as a way to say thank you for all that they do! For the thanksgiving mason jar we have created homemade toffee hot chocolate! We made some first to make sure that it would turn out perfectly! Taste testing is always the best part of creating! 

This toffee hot chocolate has rich cocoa, milky chocolate chips, crunchy toffee bits, and sweet brown sugar mixed with creamy milk to make this heartwarming comfort in a mug.

Place ingredients in a mason jar, print out a label and say thanks to someone today for all they do!

#12 Days Of Thankfulness-Thankful Turkeys

My kids really enjoy holiday foam projects and two years ago I scored big when I found these cute turkeys in the Target $1 bin! Each year I take them out and display them. My kids really enjoy seeing their artwork displayed and they get a kick out of seeing how they use to write and draw! 
It's amazing to see their growth over the years and how the things that they are thankful for never change! 
Craft stores are filled with these great foam turkeys and cut out feathers, and no worries if you can't hunt these things down, the make at home version using construction and scrapbook paper is just as cute!
