Fourteen for Fall, Week 1!

The first recipe, Easy Caramel Apple Cake, is made and the first bites have been eaten. The taste-testers - my children and husband - have entered their verdicts!

Brendan declares it a -34 on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the best. WOW! I guess that's a compliment, in some sort of mathematical sense :) Aubry agreed with Brendan, although it was "at least a zero" in her terms; slightly less mathematically significant but I'll take it. Hubby and Lauryl chose non-verbal feedback; a second slice was quickly chosen and consumed by Paul while Lauryl took her time, savoring each bite, a trait that is commonly chosen by her when she wants the experience to last as long as possible.

All in all, I'd say that's a resounding 'yes' to this cake! My thoughts? Super moist, easy to make (as the recipe not-so-subtly implies), and made even easier by using caramel sauce pre-made for ice cream! (Yep, this was a busy weekend for me.)

On to Week 2: Pumpkin Cheesecake for my husband's 34th birthday this coming Saturday!

To Fall and all it's beautiful blessings!
