Mini Apple Pies

My Grandpa’s funeral was on Sunday and it was a very nice Sunday. There were many tears, but mostly from laughter. My grandpa was a pretty funny guy and surrounded himself with pretty funny people. The memorial afterward was filled with delicious foods. One of my favorite desserts was the mini apple pies. Not only were they the cutest things I’ve ever seen, but the best apple pie I’ve ever tasted. I always think of Thanksgiving when I think of apple pie, but now I will remember the time I ate mini pies with Bonnie Hunt as she told me how I should pursue acting. The miniature pies looked difficult to make but if you’re ever looking for a challenge, go get creative. Comment below if you’ve ever had mini apple pies and if you’ve ever made them please share your recipe! If you don’t like pie, comment your thoughts on Jumanji or Cheaper By the Dozen, two movies I love that Bonnie Hunt played large roles in.

Sushi Sushi Sushi

On Wednesday I ate every meal with Ryan. We carpool on late starts and if we have time grab breakfast. Although it was cold we got blenders because it’s the quickest and easiest. For lunch on Wednesday we went to Habit and got burgers. Dinner was my favorite meal by far. Ryan came over after his golf practice and ordered Restaurant Connection to my house. Restaurant Connection is extremely convenient. Although we can both drive, we just wanted to sit in my room in PJs and watch TV. We used to only order burritos from Los Agaves but then we both got stomach aches and realized we liked sushi way better. My favorite roll is the eel roll and Ryan gets the rainbow roll. Ryan likes to share food which usually means he just eats mine so we ordered two eel rolls, a rainbow roll, and a side of fried rice. Because it was Restaurant Connection is ended up being $50, but it was well worth the delicious food delivered in the comfort in your own home. Next time you don’t want to leave the house but don’t feel like pizza, call Restaurant Connection!

Smoothie Extravaganza

I’ve already spilled my secret smoothie smoothie recipe (pun intended), but I’m here to share more recipes. I could drink smoothies for every meal if my mom would let me.  My mom tries to limit my smoothie intake to one a day because of my “acidity intake,” probably just an excuse to not slave for me and make me food. Smoothies are a great on the go meal to fill you up and provide you with energy and vital vitamins. I love raw veggies, but for those of you who are grossed out by greens, put them in your smoothie, you won’t even taste them!  If you drink fruity smoothies, I dare you to had a handful or two of spinach, punch me if you taste it.

Girl Scout Cookies All Year Round

Ah, it’s the time of the year for stocking up on our favorite cookies. I personally think Girl Scout Cookies are overrated, but I was once a Girl Scout and remember the conniving competition of selling the most boxes so I do purchase several boxes a year. For the non Girl Scouts I think it’s the excitement of young, cute entrepreneurs and that you can only buy them once a year. My family loves the cookies and girl scouts so we buy tons of boxes and fill our freezer, unfortunately it doesn’t last throughout the entire year. For those of you who do the same, don’t worry, you can make your favorite cookies in your home 365 days a year. My favorite cookie is the Samoa, chocolate, caramel, and coconut on a thin cookie, yum. Click here for a recipe to make scrumptious Samoas.

Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about the classic Thin Mint, click here for the recipe.

I have yet to try these recipes myself, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were better! Comment below with your results!
