Apple Salad with Candied Hazelnuts and Lemon Vinaigrette

Apple Salad with Candied Hazelnuts and Lemon Vinaigrette
So, I promised you the recipe for Apple Salad with Candied Hazelnuts and Lemon Vinaigrette a few weeks back when I shared the recipe for Spiced Candied Hazelnuts. I know.. I know.. It's long overdue, but it's so good. It's based on the salad from the Athenian we enjoyed way back in September.

The flavors are perfect for fall all the way into winter. We usually make it as a side, but it would be so delicious with Roasted Chicken or Leftover Turkey as a main course. We totally forgot to add the Bleu Cheese in the photos, and only realized once we sat down to eat. Logan was thankful for our mistake, since he's not big on cheese. The bleu cheese really rounds out the flavor of the sweet Spiced Candied Hazelnuts, and tart yet sweet Granny Smith Apples. 

Shall we make the recipe?

Cajun Meatloaf

This post is sponsored by Safeway all thoughts and opinions are my own.

We made Cajun Meatloaf the other night after we were done hitting up our local Safeway for the stock up sale.

The chilly weather and torrential down pour of rain left me craving comfort food. Of course we didn't plan dinner while we were out shopping. Luckily, I had picked up everything I needed for Meatloaf except Oatmeal, or breadcrumbs, so I subbed them out with crushed up Cheerios™. Luckily it worked like a charm, and the kids didn't even know the difference.

Make sure to take advantage of the just for U® savings tool which is a feature found within the Safeway app. It will save you from having to clip coupons, plus they almost always have a deal that is only available on the app. It's saved us a lot of money since we started using it.

I always love when I have a cupboard full of great products with multiple uses. It saves me time and money.

Apple Coffeecake With Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb

The minute the leaves start changing all things to do with Apple, Pumpkin, my favorite long socks, and boots start to happen. 

This Apple Coffeecake With Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crumb Swirl has been a regular on our fall must haves for years. I originally made it with the Krustez Cinnamon Crumb Coffeecake mix for years until I had perfected  this little gem..

It's perfectly moist and the cinnamon brown sugar crumb topping provides the perfect contrast to the tart Granny Smith Apples. I usually use whole wheat pastry flour to increase the fiber, but all-purpose flour works equally well I can never tell the difference in this recipe between the two flours.

The cinnamon crumb swirl ensures a taste of the cinnamon brown sugar crumb topping in every bite.

We love this cake for brunch or dessert and it's always a hit. Make sure to catch the new recipe video right above the recipe card!
