Have you started dreaming about all the delicious goodies you can make with apples?

We are in the midst of switching gears and headed into the depths of Fall. Kiddos are back in school (insert fist bump to parents), flannel, boots, coats, pumpkins, leaf peeping, fairs, and apple picking are all on the way. For me, it's not that I don't love fall, it's just that I know what comes after it. The dark never ending abyss known as winter. That is way I never want to run towards fall at all. I just fall into fall, LOL. Inevitably, you will being doing those 'fallish' activities and I have a way you can do one of them on the cheap.

Ricker Hill Orchards is located in Turner, Maine. A little over an hour from Portland. They are the ultimate spot to do your apply picking! That's not all you can do there! You can stuff your face with their famous homemade donuts. Sample some hard cider and the kids can play in the corn maze and more! Right now we have a Seize the Deal with Ricker Hill Orchards!

You can buy $50 in gift certificates for only $25! Now tell me THAT ain't nothin' to flick a switch at! Happy apple hunting and welcome to Fall times!

After you come home with your apply load, it's time to cook! Here are some yummy apple recipes to inspire you!
