Cinnamon Apple Scones inspired by The Secret, Book and Scone Society #CooktheBooks

Flaky dough studded with apples and flavored with cinnamon, these fresh apple scones are a delicious way to start the day.

I was inspired to make these scones after reading our Cook the Books Selection for this period......

Malted Chocolate Cake with Baileys Irish Cream Ganache #CakeSliceBakers

This cake is very deceiving with it's look of elegance.  It goes together very quickly and is just as rich and decadent as it looks.  

It is my selection for this month's edition of The Cake Slice Bakers......

Air Fryer Roasted Broccoli #MultiCookerMonday

The next time you are looking for a vegetable side but are tired of the same old steamed veggies and didn't leave enough time to roast your veggies, turn to the air fryer.  This broccoli was roasted in the same amount of time it would have taken to steam them.   So very delicious.

It's time for Multi-Cooker Monday.....

Frank is back to teaching and the Weekly Menu

Howdy Folks.  Good news around here.  Frank continues to heal up beautifully, in fact he is feeling so well that he is giving a CPL class Sunday.  Not bad when you consider only 2 months ago we weren't sure he was going to live or ever walk again.

Marissa's uncle Mark's father passed away last week. Friday night we stopped  by to celebrate his life before heading over to Amy's to celebrate her birhday.

Here are the Teen and the Angel Face serenading Amy for her birthday.  It was a fun evening with tons of love filling the house.  Amy brings out the best in everyone she meets.

Yesterday spent getting ready for the class  so we threw hot dogs on the grill, opened a can of baked beans and made a blue box of mac and cheese.  The Teen was in heaven!!

As always, we are serving breakfast and lunch to Frank's students today.  Afterwards, we will grab dinner out before we head over  to John and Kirsten's for a visit.  Their son Mike and his wife, Amy who blogs over at Amy's Cooking Adventures, came into town for a Wedding.  I always look forward to seeing them when they are here.

The rest of the week is pretty quiet so I will be sharing some more #MerlotMe posts sharing the wines I received and the recipes I made.  Stop by and hang out for a while.

Bourride served with a Chardonnay from Jura #FishFridayFoodies #Winophiles

 Fall weather always makes me crave comfort foods.  Unfortunately, for me, that brings to mind rich, hearty soups and stews as well as pot roasts and pasta dishes.  Delicous but not necessarily healthy.  This Fish Stew soothed me and settled that craving.  Delicious and Healthy.  That is a big win!!

Fish Friday Foodies are serving up comfort food today.  I paired this lovely fish stew with a bottle of wine from Jura to include the French Winophiles group as well........
