{Sunday’s With Joy} Honey Mustard Roasted Cashews

This is one of those recipes that you make and you say, “Oh….WOW!” I snack on nuts every day. Cashews are one of my favorite nut, all buttery and crunchy, yummy on salads or just by the handful. This is a fantastic way to eat a cashew. I could eat up every little last piece of these wonderful Honey Mustard Roasted Cashews, but I must refrain myself! Your friend’s will be thrilled if you make these before you go to a party and bring them as a gift, or else you may be sitting in front of the computer shopping and then unbeknown to you, your bowl of nuts has vanished!  Not that this happened to me or anything like that.
I am fortunate to be a part of a wonderful group, Sunday’s With Joy, and this recipe was chosen this week from Joy The Baker Cookbook. Do yourself a great favor and get yourself a copy of  this wonderful cookbook. I have loved every recipe that I have made from this cookbook, you will too! Nettie

< Sunday’s With Joy > Apple Crisp

This recipe comes from Joy The Baker Cookbook, 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes. I have changed the recipe a bit by adding a cup of blueberries for the filling, I just had to, I have a lot of blueberries still! For the topping, I also added a half cup of slivered roasted almonds and a half cup of unsweetened coconut. Apple crisps are just perfect like that, you can add whatever you have on hand, in this case I happen to have lots of almonds, pecans and coconut!
Lily is having her first dinner party with sister and brother in law and we are invited and I am in charge of bringing dessert! Oh goody, I made two apple crisps! We served the apple crisp warm over ice cream. Lots of ooohs and ahhhs were going on, so I think the party was a success!
It was a perfect day for apple picking! Have to get the right apples for the crisps!
Last day to pick Paula Red’s and Ginger Gold’s. Just keep walking until you get to a fence, slim pickings but if you are persistent, you can find them!
First stop, taking thousands of photos of sunflowers. Hubs likes taking just as many pics as me, probably more! Joy The Baker calls this crisp, “Man Bait Apple Crisp”. I’ve got my man and he is in love with Sunflowers and me. He’ll be even more in love with me when he tastes this crisp!
Second stop, grape vineyard, lots of photos of grapes too, because we can.
Oh yes, I remember this is why we came to the apple orchard, to pick apples!!
Of course the star of the show, The Moore Paparazzi is going crazy for these beauties.
How many can we get? As many as you can carry!

{ Sunday’s with Joy } Apple Crostata


Hands down, apple pie is hubs all time favorite pie. If I were to make an apple pie every week for the rest of his life, he would be a very, very, happy man. But I don’t, why? Because variety is the spice of life and because I like to try new recipes all of the time! Get this, if I am happy, he is happy and when I make an Apple Crostata, he is way happy, no way, yes way! So when I came upon this new recipe from Joy the Baker, I thought to myself, self, hubs is going to be a happy guy. He actually said that this was better than apple pie…. I know, can you believe it? I can’t! Why is it better than apple pie? Because it’s your own personal apple pie, that no one can deny…. oh yeah! Sounds like a song…anyway, I made Joy the Baker’s Apple Crostata, eight Crostata’s to be exact and I think hubs ate six~ I can’t keep an eye on him all of time for goodness sake, he is a grown man and this is better than pie! Look out! Do yourself an incredible favor and if you haven’t already, get ye to a bookstore and get ye this wonderful cookbook, ye will be so happy that ye did. Ye Got It?? GREAT!Nettie

< Sunday’s With Joy > Cheddar Chive Jalapeno Biscuits

Growing up, biscuits were a staple at my Grandparent’s breakfast table. Hot flaky buttery biscuits, smothered in peppery sausage gravy.  How can you resist a simple buttery biscuit? Until now, my biscuits have not been adorned with other ingredients. Joy the Baker has brought my biscuit world to a higher level. The Cheddar Chive Jalapeno Biscuit is now the King! My mouth is watering now, craving another biscuit! These biscuits are like a meal in of itself.
