Apple Hand Pies

I have not been great at getting new recipes up lately and I feel so bad! I really do try to get at least recipe up a week, but it's a struggle - my weekends are full of lesson planning and other course work. I am really hanging onto to this being my last week and a half of students teaching. Once I'm done, I will have much more time to spend in the kitchen and I am so excited to get some new recipes up!

Last weekend, I made these fabulous hand pies and today, I'm sharing the recipe with you! I'm typically pretty transparent about how difficult recipes are and I love sharing quick & easy recipes with you. This recipe, is not one of those recipes. The hand pies are not difficult to make but they are long to put together. That being said - the end product is so worth it! The little pies were so delicious and they were so impressive to serve to guests! I found this recipe on Oh Sweet Basil you can find the original recipe HERE.

As I sit down to write this post, all I can think is when can I share Christmas music? I've been listening to Christmas music since early November - maybe even the end of October! And I am so ready to share all of favorite with you! I think I'll wait for December before I break out the Christmas music though! For today, I'm going to talk about my favorite Chris Stapleton songs!

Quilting with Quiltologie Mini Mania

I've talked about sewing woes before (maybe I should not call them woes and just call them challenges). I've always loved the idea of sewing, I've just never been able to 'get it.' That is, until very recently when I picked up a little quilting kit to help me get started! When I was in the States most recently, I was at Joann's Fabrics and found a little quilting set called Quiltologie by Mini Mania.

I started working on a mini quilt and I was impressed to discover how much support Quiltologie offers. (I realize that this sounds like a brand deal, but I promise, it isn't! I just really love them that much!). The instructional manual is so easy to understand and really walks you through every step of the process. If at any point I get stuck or confused, there are YouTube videos that accompany each project that I can rely on - so helpful!
