I am addicted to cooking and baking. I love to find and make delicious recipes. Sometimes I create my own and I post them here. Other times I find a recipe and adapt it. I have posted those recipes here as well. Enjoy.

1 container Simply Raspberry Lemonade
Approximately ½ container Simply Limeade
1 cup frozen strawberries
½ cup frozen pineapple
½ cup Country Time strawberry lemonade crystals


Pour 1 container Simply Raspberry Lemonade into a gallon pitcher.  Add ½  container Simply Limeade.  Stir.  Just before serving, blend frozen strawberries, frozen pineapple and country time lemonade crystals together in a blender.  Pour into the pitcher and stir.  Serve well chilled.


6 – 8 apples, peeled and thinly sliced (I use Granny Smith and Honey Crisp for a tart and sweet combo)
Or 1 can of apple pie filling
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Cornaby’s Thick Gel, or corn starch
½ teaspoon apple pie spice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cake mix (I used a Caramel Apple Cake Mix, but a spice cake mix or a yellow cake mix would work)
1 cube butter (1/2 cup), cut into very thin squares.
7 squares of caramel, cut in pieces

As you peel and slice the apples, place them in a large bowl with lemon juice, stirring as you add more.  Once you are finished slicing the apples, add 1 tablespoon Thick Gel or 1 tablespoon cornstarch, ½ teaspoon apple pie spice and ½ teaspoon cinnamon.  Mix well. 

Pour apple mixture into a 13X9 inch baking dish.  Cover  apples with the dry cake mix.    Place the thin squares of the butter evenly over the cake mix.  Toss the pieces of caramel over the butter.  Bake for approximately 45 – 50 minutes or until golden brown.  If you are using the apple pie filling, your baking time will be approximately 35 – 40 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
