Tasty Tuesday – 3 Ingredient Apple Cake

DSCN1001-2

TODAY is the day!  Belinda and Ashley are arriving in Phillie this morning.  I am on my way to the airport to pick them up.  So excited to have them home for Christmas.  It seems like forever since the wedding in August.

Thank you Made 2 B Creative for today’s recipe.

 

Ingredients

1 box Duncan Hines® Signature Spice Cake Mix
3 large eggs (beaten)
1 can Duncan Hines Comstock® Country Apple

Baking Instructions

In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix, eggs and pie filling.
Stir together until well mixed.
Bake in greased Bundt pan, 350 degrees for 35 minutes or test with toothpick for doneness.

I haven’t tried this but it sounds yummy!  I have to admit that I have horrible memories of using bundt pans in the past.  I am sure they are more advanced now!  I always made a mess!  LOL.

This is one of those cakes that can be used as a dessert or for brunch.  A perfect thing to have on hand when unexpected company drops by this holiday season.  How about serving it warm with some ice cream?

It travels well too if you pack it up in a Thirty One Family Fun Thermal.  Take the party anywhere with this thermal that’s perfect for picnics, tailgates or block parties. With new Leak Lock lining you can even fill it with ice and use it as a beverage bin. Easy to tote with a detachable shoulder strap. Approx. 9.5”H x 14”L x 10”D.

Tasty Tuesday -Sweet Spicy Appy

slow-cooker-sweet-spicy-sausage-4

I LOVE this recipe and every time I make it, everyone raves about it.  The only difference is that I use frozen “turkey meatballs” instead of sausage.  Thank you Jenny Bullistron

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • 12 ounces chili sauce
  • 12 ounces grape jelly
  • ½ tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 32 ounces fully-cooked sausage, cut into ½-inch piece

Instructions
Pour the oil in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Then add the chili sauce and grape jelly and mix together. Cook for 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently.
Place the sausage in your slow cooker. Add the spices to the sauce mixture, stir and then pour it over the sausage. Cover and cook for 1½ – 2 hours or until the sausage is hot and the sauce is bubbly. Stir once after 1 hour.

NOTE:  I throw everything into the crock pot – less mess, less to clean up!!

Tasty Tuesday – Sweet Potato Bundt Cake with Marmalade Ribbon

Today’s Tasty Tuesday is courtesy of LouisianaCooking.com who shared this recipe by By Cindy Nerat of Menominee, Michigan.  I have lots of people who tell me that they don’t like sweet potatoes but I am sure that this will convince them how YUMMY they really are.

Ingredients

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
¾ cup orange marmalade, divided
3 large eggs, divided
1 (16-ounce) can candied yams, drained, syrup reserved
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 (15.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix* (They used Betty Crocker Super Moist Yellow Cake Mix)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1½ cups confectioners’ sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 12-cup Bundt pan with baking spray.
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add ½ cup marmalade and 1 egg, and beat until combined. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mash yams until smooth. Add oil, cake mix, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ½ cup reserved syrup, and remaining 2 eggs; beat with a mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes. Place half of the cake batter in prepared pan, spreading it evenly. Spoon marmelade filling on top, staying away from the edges of pan. Spoon remaining cake batter over marmelade.

Bake until a wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 30 minutes before inverting onto a cake plate. Let cool completely.
In a small bowl, microwave butter until melted. Stir in vanilla, remaining ¼ cup marmalade, and confectioners’ sugar. Stir in 3 teaspoons of reserved syrup. Spread glaze over cake.

The best way to travel with this YUMMY treat to your friend or family’s house is with Thirty One’s Family Fun Thermal.

Who’s Ready for Football?

football LUT

As you can guess by the title – I am excited about football season starting.  Alright, I was never really a football fan until Rob and I got together.  I tolerated the Sunday ritual in the beginning by finding things to keep me busy while the game was on. Then one day a light bulb went off – that AHA moment when I realized, why not just enjoy the time together.  So now we watch football together – I am a little more vocal than he is but it is fun times except when our teams are playing against each other.  He is a die-hard Giants fan.  I am a JETS fan.  No heckling allowed!

The Fall season brings with it lots of different outdoor activities especially football which means tailgating or cold benches as the crisp fall air comes rolling in.  Maybe you are already dreading hauling snacks, planning football parties or even thinking ahead to Super Bowl Sunday. There was a great blog by Kim of The Celebration Shoppe about the “10 Must Haves for Tailgating & Football Season”.  Numbers 7, 8, 9 & 10 involved Thirty One products!  Okay, so some of those may be retired but there are NEW ones to replace them.  Lots of options for tailgating including the NEW Family fun thermal that you can use ICE – yes I said ICE!

The large utility is  must have not only for tailgating but for all of the shopping that takes place BEFORE the event.  You can personalize it in your favorite team colors. How about adding a picnic thermal.  The picnic thermal will hold up to TWO six packs of your favorite drink.  You can add a top to your large utility tote too so everything stays neat and inside your bag.  Many customers also use their picnic thermal and their large utility tote for grocery shopping.

Need to convince  the males in your life that Thirty One is NOT just about purses!

for men

What better way than using our spirit collection or the camo print in a variety of products.  My hubby swore that he wouldn’t carry Thirty One – WRONG!  He now has an out and about lunch tote for work and when asked where he got it tells everyone that his wife sells it.   What a great advertisement for your business, right?  Make sure you always have business cards or mini catalogs handy when you are tailgating for the opportunity to share Thirty One.  Who knows that tailgating party could turn into an impromptu party.

So, are you ready for football?  LUT display I am especially since pre-season has already started.  Don’t be left out in the cold, get yours today and show your school spirit!

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
