Candied Orange Slice Recipe

Candied Orange Slice Recipe |

If you're serving cake this holiday, and need to save time, do what I did here. Buy a white cake at the grocery store, and add some homemade touches like candied orange slices and I promise your guests will be impressed.

Making these candied orange slices was super easy. The only thing you need to be aware of is that your orange slices need time to dry, like two hours in a warm oven. Other than that, there's really nothing to it and the candied orange slices were delicious -- sweet, tangy, and chewy. They're definitely great for cake decorating, but you can serve them on their own as a candied treat, and your guests will eat them up!

Pumpkin Pie Blondie Recipe |

We love putting new spins on classic dishes, and when Safeway asked us to do it for a traditional Thanksgiving recipe, we were excited, and came up with this pumpkin pie blondie recipe.

I think these blondies give traditional pumpkin pie a run for its money. They've got a delicious rich, moist, pumpkin-y flavor, lots of cinnamon and spice, plus, they're easy to serve, perfect for a potluck or to give as a gift!

Apple Crumble Cake Recipe

Apple crumble cake recipe |

Lainey, my daughter, wanted to make a cake yesterday so we used my apple crumble cake recipe and made this delicious treat!

The crumble cake is filled with lots of apples, plus there's a touch of apple cider vinegar in the cake batter to give it a little brightness. The crumble topping is beyond yummy with lots of cinnamon and sugar. I made sure to put on extra crumble because I know how much Lainey loves it! This is the perfect cake for fall because the apples and cinnamon will really warm you up.

Burrata Artichoke Dip Recipe

by Jillian Leslie on

Easy burrata artichoke dip |

My favorite Italian cheese is burrata. It's got an outer shell of solid mozzarella, and an inside of both mozzarella and cream. It's rich, mild, and utterly divine. I've been dying to do a burrata recipe for the blog, so here's my burrata artichoke dip recipe that is my new go-to dip for entertaining.

In fact, we served it at a recent family birthday party instead of traditional cheese and crackers and it was a big hit! This dip is so yummy because it's both creamy and sour, and you can really taste the artichoke. If you haven't tried burrata this easy dip is the perfect way to get introduced to your new favorite cheese. :)
