  8. You had me at "Giveaway"!!!!! :) (Hopefully, you've seen the movie "Jerry McGuire" and you get that weak attempt at a joke! ;) I love the cooler weather and the beautiful leaves that Football season...er, I mean Fall brings! My favorite Fall recipe is instant hot chocolate! You just open up the packet, dump it in your favorite mug, add some hot water and of course, marshmallows! Yummolicious!! I'm not a fan of pumpkin, but my family loves this easy pumpkin dip: 8oz Cool Whip, small box instant vanilla pudding, 1 can pumpkin and 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice - mix together and serve with gingersnap (their fav) or shortbread cookies. (You did say each word of a comment is an entry, right? ;)

  27. One of my favorite fall recipes is apple dumplings, a recipe I got from a friend during our time in Colorado.

    2 cans of crescent rolls, 8 rolls per can
    2 Granny Smith apples cut in to 8 wedges each
    1 stick butter, melted
    1 1/2 cups brown sugar
    1 1/2 cups Sprite
    cinnamon

    Spray the bottom of a baking dish with non-stick spray. Place one wedge of apple inside each piece of crescent roll dough and shape dough around apple. Place in pan. Mix melted butter and brown sugar and pour the mixture over the top of the apples. Pour the Sprite over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Allow to stand for 10 minutes after baking to allow sauce to thicken.

    Yummy with ice cream too!
