Cinnamon Apples with Bourbon Syrup

Cinnamon Apples cooked in butter and sugar make the perfect topping for fluffy sweet bread. The bourbon drizzle is like icing on the cake!

Cinnamon apples are cooked in butter and brown sugar then set over sliced sweet bread. Each serving is drenched in a simple bourbon syrup. My five-year old skips a lot.  I started noticing the skipping when we'd take the dog for a walk.  Her happy little legs would be skipping in front of me while I’d be left to bring up the rear.  Every four or five skips, my daughter would do a leap, with her arms swinging over her head to propel her … Continue reading →

My husband's birthday was yesterday.  We won't talk age.  I told my kids my husband and I are counting backwards now.  They didn't buy it.
