Blog Love:

We're right in the middle of a really busy weekend, but I wanted to share a quick Blog Love post with you.  Here are a few things in blog-land that have caught my eye this week: 

Just in time for apple season, Lisa shares a tutorial for her Stouffer's Harvest Apples Copycat Recipe.  I love fried apples and cannot wait to try this recipe!  I have 2 granny smith apples on my kitchen counter, so I'm thinking I'll be making this recipe very soon! 
Just so you know, Lisa and her family follow a Gluten Free diet.  She shares a lot of recipes (including this one) that are safe for her GF family.  Check out her blog, Extraordinary Life.


Here is yet another reason that I need to get my sewing machine fixed and learn (again) how to sew!  How adorable is this Barn Tent?  Not only is this tent oh-so-cute, it's also frugal!  Christy was able to make this tent using a $3 flat sheet from Walmart, a thrift shopped picture frame and a Ralph Lauren bedskirt that she also found in a thrift shop!  I love crafty stuff!  But FRUGAL crafty stuff is even better!  If you haven't checked out From Glitter to Gumdrops yet....you really should!  Christy is super-crafty!  She makes so many great kid-friendly items and lots and lots of fun cupcakes!  Mmmm! 
 



If you have a picky eater at your dinner table, you should really check out this Sneaky Foods post over at Frugality is Free.  I know that I try to sneak some veggies into our recipes, but it's always good to be reminded!  Frugality is Free even takes it to another level by using veggie scraps to sneak add some vegetables into lasagna and meatballs!  Read her post to find out how she added 8 cups (8 CUPS!!!) of veggies to her lasagna and her picky eaters didn't even notice!  Awesome! 


I'll be linking this (a little late) post to Share Your Faves at It's a Blog Party!  where you can find a linky party every day of the week!

I love recipes that sneak vegies into regular meals! sloppy joes, soups of all kinds, and bolognese are favorites in my repertoire.

Alison thank you so much for featuring my sneaky lasagna, you are so sweet. If my boys (and husband) only realized the amount of veggies they are eating:)

I also want to thank you for participating in The Wednesday Window @ Frugality Is Free.
