Oh, MIMI, all your recipes look so so good. I just spent 30 minutes, making copy of all on this page. Will go back thru time and pick up some more. I just wish more people knew of your blog. I am going to cook some of these great recipes and send more people over!!
Can't wait to try the apple dumplings....and I have a basket of Pink Lady apples we picked this week. Now, are you telling me that I need to peel, core and leave the apple whole while baking it in a dumpling crust??
