Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet ~ Blushing Apples


OK... we know you have all these recipes that you love to make. You got them from your mother, your grandmother, a magazine, or maybe you made it up, perhaps you don't even remember where the recipe came from. Well, how about sharing them with all of us? We are going to share ours with you every Thursday!

My good friend and (according to her husband) excellent cook, Dolly over at XmasDolly and I are now doing a recipe swap; we want to share ours with you and wold LOVE to get some of your favorites as well... So welcome to Thursday's Recipe Swap Meet, here is all you have to do:


Post a recipe on your blog, sign the linky on either blog (they will be linked), grab our new button - isn't she cute - hubby says she looks like me... TeeHee? (above, on my sidebar and on my Co-Chef Dolly's blog) and check out the recipes. Don't forget that each week you actually will be getting at least TWO for the price of ONE because both Dolly and I will post a recipe on each of our blogs. How simple is that??

Today I chose a really simple dessert recipe (but forgot to take photos... DOH!!)

Blushing Apples

2 pkg. (4 serving size) cherry gelatin (I recommend Jell-O brand) - you could also use your favorite flavor
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 cups water
4 medium Granny Smith apple (you can also use McIntosh or your favorite apple)
1/2 c whipped cream (I like to make my own homemade, but you can use your favorite)

~ Combine dry gelatin mix and cinnamon in saucepan. Add water, bring to boil on medium-high heat stirring frequently until gelatin is completely dissolved.
~ Peel and core apples. Add to gelatin mixture in saucepan, PARTIALLY cover pan with lid and return to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 10-15 minutes gently turning apples every 5 minutes. Remove apples from liquid.
~ Serve apples either warm or cold with fresh whipped cream.

This recipe only received 1 out of 6 puppy tail wags... but that's because my babies are really carnivores and Mumbo will eat just about anything. =)

So now all you have to do is sign our linky so we all can find your recipes. You check out all ours and we will check out all yours. If you don't want to write it all down and you know of one on line just post a link to it on your blog or leave it in a comment if you prefer!

For more recipes, head on over to Ms.BiBi at Daily Organized Chaos.

Let's get cooking..... Bon Appetit!
