Maple Apple Crisp

This post is sponsored in conjunction with AppleWeek. I recieved product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are my own.

Nothing says fall to me like apple crisp.  We've tried a lot of versions, but we absolutely love it made with maple sugar.   When I heard Flahavan's was sponsoring, I immediately thought about how great their Irish Oatmeal would be mixed into the topping.

I like to keep the apples pretty simple, just some spices and a little vanilla.  Depending on the variety of apple you use, you can add a tablespoon of sugar also.   I like to slice the apples, but cubed up works too, just adjust the baking time.  You want the apples to be soft, but still hold their shape. If the topping is browing too quickly, just cover it with some foil.

The guys like theirs with vanilla bean ice cream.  Sometimes I'll top mine with a bit of whipped cream. It's great both room temperature, or warmed up.  And since there's fruit and oats, I definitely think you can eat it for breakfast guilt free!

A little vanilla makes a world of difference! This looks fantastic!
Maple and Apples is such a great flavor profile. This looks and sounds wonderful.

I also usually avoid adding sugar to the apples, when I make apple crisp. Fresh apples are so sweet, they really don't need extra.
But I do love your addition of maple flavors to a classic crisp recipe. I'm going to need to try that some time!

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Strawberry Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite childhood cookies and I'm constantly looking for ways to put a new spin on them.  Since one of my favorite summer fruits is strawberries, I swapped out the vanilla in the original recipe with strawberry extract.  This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SummerDessertWeek !  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own. I also added some red food coloring to give it a pink hue, but you can skip that if you like.  I use a cookie scoop to portion out the batter, it keeps all the pizzelles the same size, plus it's quicker than using two spoons.   They're delicious as is but you can take them over the top by fashioning them into a cylinder which we like to call fauxnoli.  You can pipe them full of whipped cream or buttercream.  If you want to prepare everything in advance, store the pizzelle in an airtight container, and the filling in a pastry or zip top bag in the f
