I made this twice in the past few days and plan on making it again this weekend.
It has to be THE easiest and best cake I’ve every made! with the fewest ingredients.
I’ve discovered you can even make it in a bread pan and call it Applesauce Nut Bread!
(Click on the picture for the recipe)
Here’s something I do to make this cake extra tasty:
I always grease/butter/or spray the bottom of the cake dish or bread pan then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. I do this on top as well when I’m baking it in a bread pan and don’t plan on glazing the bread. I suppose you could do it even if you do glaze the “bread”. It adds a little yum-yum flavor!
Bake it. Soon.

The last piece of apple pie is gone;
How did it disappear?
The bowl of delicious stuffing
Has also vanished, I fear.
It happens each Thanksgiving,
When leftover goodies flee,
And each of us knows the responsible one
Couldn’t be you or me.
The only way it could happen
Is readily diagnosed;
It must be the crafty, incredibly sneaky,
Still hungry Thanksgiving ghost.
Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
Bless my little kitchen Lord
And light it with Thy Love.
Help me plan and make my meals
From Thy heavenly home above.
Bless our meals with Thy Presence
And warm them with Thy grace;
Watch over me as I do my work,
Washing pots and pans and plates.
The service I am trying to do
Is make my family content,
So bless my eager efforts Lord
and make them heaven sent.
Tune in tomorrow for a delicious breakfast recipe!

My daughter either dreamed up this idea or saw it somewhere and was determined to make it.
All the items came from the Dollar Tree except the hot glue and ribbon that I already had.
1 apple scented candle
1 pack of cinnamon sticks
1 gift box
hot glue and hot glue gun
With a sharp knife, we cut the cinnamon sticks to about the same height as the candle. Using a hot glue gun, we carefully glued the sticks around the candle, arranging them as needed. The glue is hot, so be very careful. Let each one cool before adding the next.
Finish the candle off by tying a pretty ribbon around the candle. Place in a gift box and present with a smile.
My daughter made this one last year for the birthday of her beloved grandfather, Papa. Being the gracious man he was, he acted very happy to receive such a great gift.
Today I’m late, but I’m linking to
Have a great Sunday!
Today would have been Papa’s 83rd birthday. He was a man that lived up to his name…he truly was golden. He is greatly missed.

A crazy, hectic day at work means I get to re-post some goodies from the past.
When I think about all the great recipes and cooking I’ve done over the years that I never took pictures of…that I could blog about…I get sad.
All the years of Taste of Home and Quick Cooking subscriptions and all the recipes I made when my kiddos were young and I was a SAHM…they got me where I am today. Needing to lose some inches!
The longs lists of goodies made for the holidays, candy trays made for my mom to share at work, loaves of bread I baked for a sick friend…great memories.
My diet has changed, out of neccessity. Now I try to be a little smarter in my cooking and a little more choosy in my recipes.
Some of the old family favorites haven’t changed and probably never will.
Here’s some of my favorite candies and treats for the holidays…treats because that’s about the only time they get made! :)
Easy Peanut Butter Fudge
Pineapple Cheese Ball
Peanut Butter Balls
Cheesy Sausage Balls
Another Brownie Recipe
What’s your favorite can’t-live-without-holiday treat?

Today I’m joining link parties at
Felted Wool Fingerless Arm Warmers,
modeled by my daughter.
I made these last year for my brother using a wool sweater I got from Goodwill. I thought they turned out really cute and they’re really warm, too! I got so excited, I purchased several wool sweaters from the Goodwill and made several pairs of arm warmers for my daughters.
Directions: Take a sweater that is at least 85% wool and and cut off the sleeves and separate the front from the back. Toss the pieces into the washer and wash with soap on hot cycle, and rinse on cold cycle. They should shrink like crazy. If you want them even more dense, toss them into the dryer too. They may shrink as much as 70 percent. (The old name for this process was “boiled wool” or “fulling.”)
When you pull the sweater from the dryer, check to see if it shrank and if you can see the texture of the knitted stitches. If it did indeed shrink and the stitches aren’t visible, the sweater is felted and you’re ready to make the arm warmers.
Cut the sleeves to the length you want the arm warmers to be. Pull them on your hand and mark where you want the thumb hole to be. Remove them and carefully cut a small slot to put your thumb through. Some hem around this hole, others do not. I chose to. Using embroidery floss, I hemmed the hole with the arm warmer on and my thumb poking through. It wasn’t perfect, but for the first time, it wasn’t bad either.
Now’s the time to add any embelishments you want to add to the arm warmers. I chose 2 medium size black buttons since I was making these for my brother. I think they turned out great!

A few years ago, my hubby bought me a bread machine for my birthday.
I was thrilled! There’s nothing like the smell of bread baking in the oven. There’s a satisfaction of being able to bake your own bread. When I bite into a warm yeast roll fresh from the oven, there’s a certain sense of accomplishment.
I went on a search for the perfect yeast roll. This recipe was the best and easiest and with a name like Heavenly Yeast Rolls, what could be better?!
Heavenly Yeast Rolls
1 cup milk
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
2 1/2 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
Place the ingredients in your bread machine in order recommended by the instruction book and use the dough cycle.
Remove the dough from the machine and knead gently on lightly floured surface.
Divide and shape into 24 – 30 smooth round balls. Place the rolls about 3/4 inch apart on a greased cookie sheet. Cover with a cloth and allow to double in a warm place.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 18 minutes. Brush them with butter after baking to keep the tops soft.
*You can also substitute 1 cup of wheat flour for one cup of the bread flour for wheat rolls.
Optional: Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese before baking (see first picture.)
Serve with butter and jam.

Freedom from Want by Norman Rockwell
by Edgar Albert Guest
Gettin’ together to smile an’ rejoice,
An’ eatin’ an’ laughin’ with folks of your choice;
An’ kissin’ the girls an’ declarin’ that they
Are growin’ more beautiful day after day;
Chattin’ an’ braggin’ a bit with the men,
Buildin’ the old family circle again;
Livin’ the wholesome an’ old-fashioned cheer,
Just for awhile at the end of the year.
Greetings fly fast as we crowd through the door
And under the old roof we gather once more
Just as we did when the youngsters were small;
Mother’s a little bit grayer, that’s all.
Father’s a little bit older, but still
Ready to romp an’ to laugh with a will.
Here we are back at the table again
Tellin’ our stories as women an’ men.
Bowed are our heads for a moment in prayer;
Oh, but we’re grateful an’ glad to be there.
Home from the east land an’ home from the west,
Home with the folks that are dearest an’ best.
Out of the sham of the cities afar
We’ve come for a time to be just what we are.
Here we can talk of ourselves an’ be frank,
Forgettin’ position an’ station an’ rank.
Give me the end of the year an’ its fun
When most of the plannin’ an’ toilin’ is done;
Bring all the wanderers home to the nest,
Let me sit down with the ones I love best,
Hear the old voices still ringin’ with song,
See the old faces unblemished by wrong,
See the old table with all of its chairs
An’ I’ll put soul in my Thanksgivin’ prayers.

About the painting: Norman Rockwell’s Freedom from Want appeared on the pages of The Saturday Evening Post on March 6, 1943. This was the third installment of Rockwell’s famous Four Freedoms series. The painting was also originally reproduced on a poster promoting the sale of war bonds during World War Two. This painting is also known as Thanksgiving Dinner. Many people consider this the definitive Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving Painting.
