Happy Baking from a beautiful Oregon Autumn. I pulled this family, easy favorite out of the recipe box to celebrate the end of camping season. Knowing it travels and keeps every so well. Cold, warmed, breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacking just because. My family eats it up. Nothing says fall is coming than picking the first King apples off the tree. As you can see in my pictures below, King apples, beautiful, large not able to fit through my apple peeler. But oh the taste makes up for the extra effort. I made this huge batch purposefully to send the extra pan of Fall Bliss, over to my "Senior" folks, happy faces and appreciative tummies. Be sure and browse the recipe wealth and take a look inside my recipe box. With the holiday's around the corner and the weather cooling, you will want to create some hearty soups and treats for all table guests. Happy Harvest Baking. and of course, I love celebrating and sharing my new book, The Unfinished Book available in all formats. Bliss-ings
