Crispy Caramel Apple Turnovers


Yep, its officially fall. Time for an apple recipe. Autumn is hands down my favorite season! I start daydreaming of fall in about August when I'm sweating bullets. It's starting to cool off (which means highs in the 90's in Arizona) so I got my bake on. This recipe was inspired by my husband's love for Taco Bell's caramel apple empanadas, sad to say. Years ago, when he was single, he came up with his own version using Hostess apple pies- true story. In full disclosure, they're actually pretty good. BUT.... not exactly my "style". I decided to come up with an upgrade.

If You Like Me, You'll LOVE Them

Being a blogger, I kinda feel like its my job to read other blogs and stay up on what's new (that's what I tell my husband anyways). I often get asked which blogs I follow. I follow a wide mix of different blogs; some DIY, some craft, some home design, and a couple recipe. When it comes to DIY and furniture, I have my standbys that I make sure to read everyday.

I often get asked what is my favorite piece of furniture I have built. Although there have been many pieces I've loved, I am especially proud of my World Market "Aiden" Knock-off. This is the first piece I welded by my self, and it totally fits my style.
