Skillet Apple Crisp #CreativeHOP

Skillet Apple Crisp

  'Tis the season for apples and apple recipes! Apples were always my favorite fruit, but I've been allergic to them for the last 16 years or so (it's a long story...something called oral allergy syndrome).

Cajun Cast Iron Skillet Potatoes

  I recently started building my collection of cast iron skillets and pots, and I've been searching for recipes to prepare in cast iron. *Some members of my family are calling me slightly obsessed.
