Fantastic ~ Bake ~ Along – Apples!

Hello my lovely friends  💕 It’s that time again…Time for the ‘Fantastic Bake Along’ hosted by our lovely friend Tracy over at It’s a T-Sweets Day Every month Tracy inspires a long list of friends to do some baking. Usually we all bake one thing….but this month she just gave us a theme: Apples   😃  ~ inspired by Connie’s @ Connie’s Creations Applesauce Cake. I decided to follow Connie’s recipe for the Applesauce cake…and I strongly advise you to do the same. That cake is absolutely fabulous! We had some for dessert last night, and right after hubby was already planning the size of the slice for breakfast! 😂

Doesn’t it look amazing?

Throughout the weekend I saw a lot of mouthwatering Apple Recipes…Tracy’s Award winning Apple Pie, Apple Waffles, Apple Scones, Apple/Prosciutto/Parmesan Wraps…just to name a few.

Take a look…

Brenna’s Apple/Proscuitto/Parmesan Wraps Kathy’s Apple Waffles Kate’s Apple Scones AJ’s Gluten- and Dairy Free Applesauce Cake Abbey’s Apple Coffee Cake *There are more wonderful bakers – but thanks to the Shenanigans of either WordPress or my Laptop – or maybe it’s a combined effort –  the links show up as weird letter combos and hieroglyphs. Pfft…
y and Brenna have the full list posted if you wanna check out and enjoy the whole Apple deliciousness of this month.

Everything looks so delicious that I will definitely bake my way down the list. Meanwhile, this cake will definitely be a staple in this house, and once you make it (just follow the ‘Applesauce Cake’ link up there  ⬆️ ) you will feel the same. I promise!

Now I’m off to the kitchen…got some more baking to do. See – it’s Lorelai’s Birthday – and every year I spoil  her with her favorite peanutbuttery Doggy-licious cookies😍

Happy Birthday, Lorelai!

She keeps looking at me – I think she knows what’s coming! 😁

Thank you for stopping by today! 💕

I wish all of my US friends a happy, joyful, peaceful Thanksgiving Celebration! 😍

Sending Smiles 🙂 Hugs  🤗 and Love 💜 your way! 😘

Today is Lorelai’s Birthday! 💕


She loves treats of any kind, but these peanut-buttery ones are her favorite.
So I baked a batch to spoil her on her special day (and, since the recipe makes about 20 cookies, for days to come 😊).

If you wanna spoil your furry friend too – here’s the recipe

~1 cup flour
~3/4 cup oats
~1/4 cup wheat germ
~1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
~1/4 cup vegetable oil
~1/4 cup honey
~1 tsp. baking powder
~1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 Celcius)
Combine all ingredients, and mix on low until blended.
Form into tablespoon-sized balls, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet (I do use parchment paper)


Flatten balls to 1/4″ thickness using tines of a fork


Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack and…..
Let them eat treats! 🐶

Enjoy their happiness! 🤗

Until next time
~Tina xoxo

PS. Lorelai just had 2 cookies….now it’s time for a nap! 😄
