French Apple Pie (Gluten & Dairy Free!)

Wow, I did it again! Ive been slacking on my posts lately 😦 It’s crazy how life sneaks up on you and you find yourself without time for things! That and my kitchen has been taking over and getting all the finishing touches before our appraisal next week!! Even now, I am without an oven (again!) so the floor can get finished! I’ve got a ton of recipes just sitting here waiting to be posted, so I’m gonna try to get caught up! Especially since I’m trying to fight a cold, which means I’ve gotta take it easy…. guess I’ll just have to curl up on the couch with my laptop and start blogging right?! Heehee! OH! and I just realized that Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away! And since I’ve let everyone know that Thanksgiving needs and WILL to be at my house this year because 1. I have a beautiful new kitchen to use and 2. I’m the one with food allergies, so it will just be easier for everyone to come here and let me cook! So…..the whole family (well almost, 1 sis is halfway across the world, maybe we can Skype her in?! LOL) will be here! YAY! I’m super excited, but there are a few things I need to do, like plan the menu and then do a test drive on my new recipes! Ive already done that with my GF & DF pumpkin pie, but now here is the apple pie! I mean, you can’t just have one pie right?! Options are wonderful! 🙂  And apple pie is just so American!! LOL This pie is amazing! Its the apple pie that I grew up eating….and now that i have a wonderful pie crust recipe that works AND tastes great, it was easy to make this one! It turned out fantastic too! You could also use the pie crust and topping from my 5-Fruit pie, if you want a little more substance to the crust and topping. Either way, they’re all delicious! I’ve got fresh apples to use up, and I’m thinking of making an apple crisp later! YUM! So….more coming, since this post is getting a little long. Enjoy! 🙂

Apple Pie Pancakes (Gluten & Dairy Free)

Yep! That’s right….another amazing pancake recipe! I’m all over this fall thing! LOL Again, in the spirit of Autumn… I just HAD to try a tasty new fall recipe….and it certainly won’t disappoint! An American favorite….apple pie! I love love love apple pie, and I’ll get there! But in the meantime, lets just celebrate it in pancake form! Aren’t pancakes fun!? I love that there are so many different kinds…. and I’m always coming up with new kinds too! And the best part (other than it being both gluten and dairy free!) is that pancakes are about one of the simplest and quickest things to make. I bust out my big ole grill and cook em all up at once! Sometimes I’ll even get lucky and there’s leftovers! I don’t mind a day old pancake! I’m not that picky! Haha. The maple vanilla glaze on these is amazing! But leftovers warranted a drizzle of maple syrup and that was simply delicious too! They really do taste like apple pie! And you don’t have to worry too much about them being unhealthy cause they’re full of oats and apples! Can’t be THAT bad right?! Give it a try! Lots more on the way! Enjoy! 🙂
