Foodie Collection of '30 Fall Apple Recipes' & Skinny Apple Spice Cake Recipe

This post is part of the sponsored campaign.  However, all opinions are my own.

Check out Fall Apple Recipes
by Amanda Shute Taylor at
Fall is here, it is my favorite season of the year!  I love the trees changing colors, the crispness in the air and baking.  I especially love September/October because it is apple season, my favorite fruit, and most of my recipes include apples in them.  So in honor of my favorite season and favorite fruit, I put together this awesome Foodie roundup of 30 Fall Apple Recipes.

To go along with this amazing apple recipe roundup, I figured I would include a delicious, easy and skinny recipe to share with you all today.  That is my three main goals when it comes to creating a dish; easy, skinny and delicious!  I am a full time working mom, I do not have the hours in the day to spend in the kitchen creating 20 ingredient dishes.  So, my recipes need to be quick and easy!  The Apple Spice Cake I made the other day, certainly combines all three requirements.  It is super easy to prepare, delicious and I "skinnied" it all up!  Hope you enjoy the recipe, my taste buds sure did!

Disney Studio Reveals Moana: Opens in Theaters 2016

I smell another huge hit in the midst since Disney Animation Studios revealed plans for Moana.  What's Moana, you ask?  A CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors' quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker ("The Little Mermaid," "The Princess and the Frog," "Aladdin”).

Henry Mancini: The Classic Soundtrack Collection out November 17th

Legacy Recordings has announced, Henry Mancini's The Classic Soundtrack Collection is scheduled to release on Monday, November 17th.  Just in time for Christmas!  I received an early copy for review purposes.  While I am not the music connoisseur in my household, my husband certainly is.  He has an eclectic taste in music and is a drummer in a local (instrumental) surf rock band.  I found it only fitting to have him listen to the Soundtrack and share his thoughts on it!  Here it is:
