Stovetop Apple Cider.

If you know me you know I love warm weather, BUT one of the best things about a chill in their air is getting to enjoy some of the most classic Fall favorites. I love spending time time with my family cozied up by the fireplace enjoying a treat and this is one we always break out on Halloween and sip all season long - Apple Cider.

Today I am going to share my favorite apple cider recipe. This is the perfect quick and easy recipe to get the kids in the kitchen to help with, and even if you don’t love drinking it I promise you’ll want to put a pot on just to make your house smell amazing for Fall. This is also an easy recipe to move to the crockpot too, especially green when you’re entertaining because it stays nice and warm for your guests.

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 apple (cut in half + with peeling)

1 small orange (cut in 1/4 inch slice + with peeling)

2 tsp whole cloves

2 cinnamon sticks

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp allspice

Begin by inserting the whole cloves into all sides of the apple. Using a dutch oven or saucepan begin heating the apple juice over medium heat. When it becomes heated begin to stir in the brown sugar until it dissolves. Add in the remaining ingredients and let the mixture simmer for about 20 minutes. Remove the apple, orange and any other whole ingredients. Serve hot in your favorite mug, and enjoy.

Apple Buttermilk Skillet Cobbler.

After the best apple picking trip in the North Georgia mountains with my big guy Wyatt, we wanted to bring back our peck of apples and make something yummy for the family.

This recipe is one that we love from a cookbook that we're so into. The author, Brooke Bell passed the book, Cast Iron Baking along to me and I fell in love with this recipe. You know any book where I can cook with my cast iron skillet for each recipe is a win / win.

For as simple as this recipe is it's absolutely delicious and beautiful too. And trust me, it may seem like a lot of butter when you pour the batter in, but it all works out in the end. How's that for Southern cooking?
