Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars (And other things I haven't blogged about in the last week...)

It's been an insane week. DH just got back last night from a four day business meeting, so I've been by myself with all three kiddos all week. I'm pretty used to going it alone since his work hours are so insane, but it doesn't exactly allow for extra crafting time! Just in this week alone we have had dance classes, tumbling classes, volunteering in classrooms, special school events, and curriculum nights. Whew! It all makes for one tired momma, but I did get a few new recipes tried out so I thought I'd share!

First off the AMAZING: Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars. I can't really say anything bad about these other than the fact that they took a little while to mix up. (It's really four recipes in one.) The kids all loved them, I loved them, and they will definitely go in my "make it again" file. I LOVE fall desserts! (Well, any dessert really. I'm not picky!)
And then the "I'm not sure about this one" recipe: Crockpot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken. It was okay. The adults of the house liked it well enough, but the kiddos weren't thrilled with the spice level. (The sauce was pretty spicy, much more so than I was expecting.) The Professor and Bug ate it, but only to get dessert. Mistress turned her nose after one bite and got Daddy to make her pasta instead. Normally what's on the table is what you get at our house, but it was pretty spicy for her three year old palate. All in all, I'm not sure this one will get made again, but if you like spicy it may be the dish for you!
This weekend officially begins one of my FAVORITE months! October is by far my favorite month of the year. Pre-holiday rush, cooler temperatures at night but still nice and warm during the day, the leaves will start to change here by the end of the month, Halloween and all the fun that goes with it, trick or treat, pumpkin patches, apple picking, mums...I LOVE OCTOBER!!! Hopefully we'll have a few great treats to share soon!

  1. I had that recipe bookmarked as well. Thanks for the review. I wanted to try it because it looked so simple- three ingredients....
