When I lived in New England, I loved apple picking and choosing from all of the wonderful varieties. In fact, it was something that I got to do in September. Baked apples don’t seem so suited to September in the South. Actually, in Georgia, it seems like the orchards don’t have the same selection. (Luckily, we do have a great collection of peach choices.) In Connecticut, during college, I used to go to the orchard with friends, and we’d bake apple crisp at the house of the person with a oven. I guess I need to track down that recipe! (In fact, I’ve emailed the recipe holder because he also had an amazing Goulash recipe.) While this super easy, slow cooker baked apples certainly isn’t his apple crisp, it does bring back those flavors of New England. It’s also such an easy dinner to make for guests because it takes only a few minutes to prepare, and looks impressive on the dinner table!

When I first met the wonderful Cricut staff in Utah during Snap Conference along with my friend, Crystal, at Hello Creative Family, I learned all about the materials that one can cut with the Cricut Explore Air. It’s an impressive list; however, I was particularly excited about its ability to cut wool felt. You see, I have this love for felt, and enjoy using it for many different projects. I was thrilled with the idea that my Cricut Explore would be able to cut out intricate designs for me to use. This week I used it to create this Happy Holly Days Felt Ornament without any need to use my own scissors.
