APPLE PIE BREAD

Apple Pie Bread TSLC - CopyThis Apple Pie Bread recipe is one you will make over and over again.  It is a great way to use up apples and goes good with coffee or as a snack with milk. This bread makes a great gift.  My weakness when it comes to food is bread of any kind and I am always making bread.

Batter:

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup butter or 8 tablespoons or 1 stick, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/3 cup sour cream

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 eggs

2 cups shredded, peeled apples (I used red delicious)

Whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.  Add white sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, sour cream, buttermilk and eggs.  Mix well with a spoon. Fold in shredded apples. Spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with cooking spray and add the batter.

Swirl:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

3/4 cup raisins

Mix together with a spoon and spread over batter as in photo below.  Take a knife and swirl into batter.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 65 to 70 minutes testing to make sure bread is done in center.  Let cool 10 to 15 minutes and remove from pan.

Topping for Cooked Apple Bread:

3/4 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons milk, more or less

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix together with spoon and drizzle over bread once bread has cooled.

Makes 1 loaf.  Enjoy!

Note:  You can freeze this bread or reheat.  It keeps well for several days in a cool, dry place.  You can also refrigerate. If you want to make it special, soak your raisins in about 1/4 cup bourbon before adding to the bread.

CROCK POT ITALIAN SAUSAGE SPAGHETTI

Crock Pot Italian Sausage Spaghetti2 - CopyThis Crock Pot Italian Sausage Spaghetti is one of our favorites.   Just add some Italian bread or cornbread and you have a meal.  This dish is spicy and a great comfort food for cold weather. If you don’t like spicy, cut back on the seasonings.  Everyone I serve this dish loves it.

1 to 1 1/2 pounds Italian sausage

1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil

3 green peppers, seeded and cut into rings. (I use one orange, one green and one red)

1 large onion, peeled and cut into rings

1 (10 ounce) can tomatoes and green chilis

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth

1 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 bay leaf

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Few drops hot sauce (Optional)

8 ounces thin or angel hair pasta

Brown the Italian sausage in a skillet on top of the stove in the oil.  Add the pepper and onion rings to the crock pot and place browned Italian sausage on top.  In a large bowl combine the tomatoes and green chilis, tomato sauce, chicken broth, oregano, garlic, basil, bay leaf, black pepper, salt and hot sauce.   Stir to combine.  Pour over the sausage, onions and peppers.  Cook on low heat in the crock pot 7 to 8 hours or high 4 to 5 hours.  Remove sausage from pot and set aside.  Turn the temperature to high on the crock pot and add the spaghetti for about 30 minutes until tender and cooked. (I use the thin or angel hair because it cooks in 30 minutes.  If you use the thick it will take a little longer). Remove bay leaf before serving.   You can add the sausage back to the pot if you want to reheat it or just serve over the spaghetti and peppers on a platter.  Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!
