Update! October 1-7Posted: October 6, 2012
I’ve been busy in the kitchen earlier this week. It feels so long ago! I’ve had a few hits and misses and revisited some old favorites. The gnocchi mac and cheese was good, as well as the chicken ranch lasagna, but they weren’t huge hits. We really enjoyed the beef stroganoff and my husband liked the Mexican casserole. Tonight we’ll be trying the pizza casserole. I’m guessing I’ll find other goodies to make, too. . Here’s some of the other things I made this week:
Beer bread – it’s so quick and easy to throw together. I made it last minute to go with Autumn salad when a friend came over for lunch.
My friend took the rest of the beer bread home and I was craving more, so I tried this English muffin bread. HUGE hit! I made only half the recipe (2 loaves) and there’s still a lot left. My husband doesn’t get too excited about things, but he was excited about this bread! Oh, did I mention its super easy?!
And of course, it’s apple season. There’s so many apples and so many dips that I need to try them all! This week I made spiced caramel apple dip. Very yummy! But my brickle dip is still my favorite. And lets face it, the apples are just the excuse to eat the sweet dips! Enjoy the recipe!
Apple Brickle Dip
From my husband’s grandmother’s family cookbook

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
10 oz package toffee bits (either plain or chocolate covered taste great!)
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla. Fold in toffee bits. Serve with chopped apples. Refrigerate leftovers.
