Happy Sunday Morning!
I’ve been leaving you guys hanging for an apple recipe since Friday when I wrote about my apple picking experience this year. Well, I’m about to share one with you.
I hope that in return you’ll stop by the Health Fair at the Oak Square YMCA at 10am this morning. I mean, I’ve been up since 6am to setup and prep the event with the other coordinators. And I’ve breathed #oakscare for three straight weeks. So please, come. I promise you’ll still have plenty of time for baking this afternoon.

This was so good. And I’ve made some really yummy breads before! Tim said he even thought he might like this better than my whole wheat banana bread, my banana and blueberry bread, and my cranberry nut bread. He may be right…
Another delicious fall recipe. And I bet it tastes even better after attending a community health fair.
