Hooked on Southern Apples!

Submitted by Christi


Okay, not just Southern apples, any apples. I love when September comes around and we start getting that fall feeling.

I love the taste of apples and the smell of apples as in Aromatique’s cinnamon cider candles:


How about the smell of Apple Crisp?:


See today's Lagniappe

You can decorate with apples:


Eat off apples:


You can even drink and apple:




1 1/2 oz Smirnoff® Green Apple Twist vodka
1 oz DeKuyper® Sour Apple Pucker schnapps

Stir ingredients together with crushed ice in a cocktail/martini glass, and serve.

Hooray for apples!

    There used to be (maybe it’s still there) and apple market in Winter Haven, FL. They made their own cider, and it was soooooo good! I love the smell of apples, whether baked, in candles, or fresh cut.

    Happy FF…

    The apple crisp sounds delish! …and is one of my favorite desserts! I’ll have to give your recipe a try! I have a very easy and simple apple cobbler listed for my post you might want to try. 🙂 ~Rhonda

    Apple crisp is one of the best things about fall. The cooler weather made me want oatmeal cookies so I baked a batch and have eaten lots! But I’m also mailing some to my son in San Diego. When I told him we were having a cool rainy day he was jealous! I guess you can even get tired of perfect weather! He is missing fall!

    Ummmm…. apples. As soon as I’m done dealing with my box of tomatoes, I will begin on apples… and a crisp is definitely in our future!
