Last night I had some friends over my apartment. What a fun night!
There was vino, Shipyard, and Slesh’s drink of the week – The Grape Cognac Cocktail.
And lots of yummy snacks to go alongside them!
Winner = Cristin’s spinach artichoke dip. All natural from Stonewall Kitchen and she used all low-fat or fat-free ingredients. Score!
For dinner we ordered from Naked Pizza. As you guys know from one of my first posts on Naked Pizza, I love it because it’s all natural and better for you than regular pizza. Also, one of my friends has celiac disease and we wanted to make sure she could still join in the deliciousness with some yummy gluten-free options.
Note: Cute Halloween plates. Thanks Bridge!
Remember in yesterday’s post when I said I baked an apple cake for dessert?
Here it is! I got the recipe right off the Honey-Pot Hill Orchards flier I picked up when I went apple picking last weekend.
This recipe was really easy to make since pretty much all it takes is mixing everything together in a big bowl!
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup oil
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 eggs
- 4 cups chopped apples
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl.
- Bake in a 13 x 9 pan at 350 degrees for 45 – 55 minutes. Recommended check in at 40 minutes.
- May frost if desired or cut into squares and serve with ice cream.
Thanks ladies for coming over!
Question of the Day: What are your plans for the weekend?
Athena, I love Honey Pot and I’ve been making their apple cake recipe since 1996! It’s awesome! Except I usually leave out the nuts. I made it over the weekend! Keep up the good work on this blog.
Thanks Steve! I love this cake 🙂
I felt like I complete midwestern-er when I read the first line. I grew up saying: “I had some friends COME over TO my apartment…” I can never get used to the East Coast “come over my apartment”. I just get an image of paper doll people flying around in the air over a building! I’ve been here for more than 20 years, you think I’d get used to it…still takes me by surprise! 🙂 I am glad you had fun last night, we missed you at bootcamp–which was super terrific!
mmmm that recipe looks delicious! and i’ve also ordered naked pizza- we thought we’d have leftovers too but there were none left! it’s that good 🙂
looking forward to meeting you at a boston blogger event soon!
