If you’ve followed this blog long enough, Dan swears I’m trying to kill him by making him eat healthy. Every once in awhile I will try a recipe that I know isn’t healthy in any form of the imagination. I started to frost the apple upside down cake from Woman Behind the Curtain. Dan walks into the house wondering what Im doing. I told him it was breakfast for this week. He then proceeds to grab his stomach and swears Im trying to make him fat. So I offered to bring it to work. Dan then said “don’t be crazy”. So I decided to leave it at home and have it for breakfast. It was SOOOOOO yummy and SOOOOO easy to make. If you only pick up one fall recipe from this blog I say this is it.
