Up To My Elbows in Apples…

It seems that I’m up to my elbows in apples.  This is apple time of the year and with the weather getting cooler, it’s a perfect combination to bake me some apples desserts! 

I’ve been trying all different recipes, here was one of our favorite – German Apple Cake – Yum!  I may bake this delight for Thanksgiving….

 Recipe from allrecipes.com ~~ CLICK ~~

This cake didn’t last very long.  Although, with 5 kids, no morsel of food lasts very long around here!

My Life as a Realtor – Day 162

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 162:

This time tomorrow, our home will be filled with family, coming over to celebrate New Years Eve for the 23 year!

 My mom and I were busy with cleaning and baking – a Ricotta Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Flan, and a Ham/Zucchini/Prosciutto Pie – YUM, YUM!  All while Tisha slept…

Tomorrow will be the real heavy cooking day.  For today, we did just a few things because we know that tomorrow will be crazy!  Remi is already feeling the house get a bit chaotic.  Today he decided to chew one of the chairs and then fell asleep on it – Amanda noticed and took this pic…

With work, I divided up my time – a little in the morning – afternoon – and evening. Ma and I did take a little break and watched “Four Christmases” with Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn.

                                         I look forward to tooting our horns and Welcoming 2010!!
