Make It Yourself Caramel Apple Bar / #SundaySupper

 I can remember lots of sleepovers when my son was little. It was always fun for me because I got to be creative and make tasty foods. One night we made caramel apples, which was a great time! Everyone made their own, from dipping into the caramel to adding the sprinkles. This activity brings out the creativity in everyone! This Make It Yourself Caramel Apple Bar is a great way to celebrate special days and events, like fall! You can coordinate the sprinkles and decorations to fit any occasion, and it is a great time for your guests!

Make It Yourself Caramel Apple Bar

 (printable recipe at end of post)

Trader Joes Organic Apples

Sticks for apples

Caramels

Milk Chocolate

Mini reese cups, mini reese pieces, mini bullseyes, mini candy corn

Sprinkles, crushed mints

Chopped nuts, crushed whoppers, mini marshmallows, smarties

Take each apple and dunk it into boiling water for 30 seconds, remove and wipe dry. This will remove the wax from the apples.

Place sticks into each apple.

Melt caramel in a crock pot, or a pot on the stove. Do the same thing to the chocolate.

Place candies, nuts, and sprinkles in containers with easy access.

Make your caramel apples anyway you like. As you can tell by the pictures, we are not Picasso's here at The Freshman Cook house, but we sure enjoyed making these and eating them too!
I hope you and your family give this a try, and I would love to see how you decorate your apple!

Thanks for stopping by today! Keep reading to find a list of what wonderful creations the #SundaySupper family made for today!

 Much thanks to Marion from Life Tastes Good, for hosting today's tasty event!

Pumpkin Hummus / #PUMPKINWEEK

I am starting to get some ideas together for special food and drinks I would like to serve during the holidays. Every year I like to serve something different than the year before. The only exception is that I also make whatever was the favorite from the year. This holiday season I will definitely be serving this Pumpkin Hummus. It is the perfect appetizer! The flavors are amazing together and this appetizer is not difficult to make at all. It has a pretty, festive color, and I served it with baked tortilla chips for something different!


Pumpkin Hummus
(printable recipe at end of post)

1 3/4 cups dry Garbanzo Beans
15 ounces Pumpkin Puree  
5 ounces Lemon Juice
1/3  cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup Tahini Paste
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
Sprinkle of Cayenne Pepper
Salt  To Taste



Place the beans in a pot and cover with cold water, Let stand for 8 hours or overnight. The next morning, drain and rinse beans, and place back in pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Refrigerate beans and the liquid. Once beans and liquid are cold, drain the beans, but keep the liquid.
Place the beans in the blender and add 1/2 cup of reserved water. Blend until smooth.
Add the pumpkin puree, lemon juice, olive oil, tahini, garlic, cinnamon, pepper, and salt. Blend until smooth. You may need to add some more reserved water if needed.

Serve with crackers or tortilla chips!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies / #PUMPKINWEEK

I love all things Whoopie Pie! It is probably one of my top 5 favorite things to bake. I love how versatile they are. You can create any filling you want, to go with any cookie you want. It's up to you and your imagination! And they are so soft and creamy! Mmm!
So I decided to look up some history on Whoopie Pies, and I found out that who originally came up with the Whoopie Pie is a controversial subject. Who knew?! Apparently Maine claims it as theirs and Pennsylvania says that it was first a product of the Amish kitchen. So I decided to look up Amish Whoopie Pies and the first thing that came up was a recipe for a Pumpkin Whoopie Pie! I knew I had to make it for #PumpkinWeek! This recipe for the cookie portion is directly from their web page, except for two changes. I used dark brown sugar for the brown sugar, and I changed the filling. I wanted something to compliment the taste of the pumpkin and not add additional sugar. I simply softened a block of cream cheese, whipped it in a bowl with a mixer, and piped it onto the cookie base. It is perfectly addicting, and I know you will love it! 
Pumpkin Whoopie Pies
(printable recipe at end of post)
 (Yields 2 dozen)
 
2 Cups Pumpkin
2 Egg Yolks
2 Cups Dark Brown Sugar
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon Cloves
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ginger
Pinch Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3 Cups Flour
8 ounce Cream Cheese, softened 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Add pumpkin, egg yolks, dark brown sugar, vegetable oil, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and flour to a large mixing bowl. 
Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, place scoops of batter on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes, checking pies to make sure they are done by using a toothpick.
Let cool completely on cooling rack.
Mix cream cheese in a bowl until there are no lumps. Using a #2A decorating tip, pipe whipped cream cheese over the flat portion of half of the Whoopie Pies. Top the whipped cream cheese with the other half of the flat portion of the Whoopie Pies.
Refrigerate and Enjoy!

Pumpkin Bread / #PUMPKINWEEK


It is #PUMPKINWEEK, and everyday this week I will have a different, yummy recipe featuring pumpkin! I am starting off  with a recipe for homemade Pumpkin Bread! I look forward to baking this bread every fall, and giving some away to friends. I wish I could send everyone a loaf of this pumpkin bread, but because I can't, I am sharing it with you today. This recipe has been in my family for a good many years, and I must say, I never get tired of it. I hope you like it!

Homemade Pumpkin Bread
(printable recipe at end of post)

3 1/2 cups Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
Pinch of Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Nutmeg
2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 cup Corn Syrup
4 Eggs
2/3 cup Water
2 cups Pumpkin

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and brown sugar in a bowl. Make a hole in the center. Add the corn syrup, eggs, water and pumpkin to the bowl. Mix together. 
Pour into loaf pan of your choice, about 1/2 way up the pan. If using a metal loaf pan, you will need to lightly grease the pan. It is not necessary with most disposable pans.I like these disposable ones when I am giving the bread to friends. I like that they don't have to worry about returning the pan to me.  Place in oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes or more, depending on the size of your pan.
Once baked, remove from oven and cool completely. Enjoy as is, or spread a slice with whipped cream cheese.
Decorate, give to a friend and enjoy one yourself.

Sausage, Pepper, and Onion Kabobs w/ a Boiled Cider Drizzle / #SundaySupper


I grew up in a small town outside Cincinnati. Most of the people I knew and grew up with were of German descent, and even though I am not, Oktoberfest was an exciting and fun time of the year. The festivals were always full of music and games and the food was so amazing! This year I am celebrating Oktoberfest by cooking up some Sausage, Pepper and Onion Kabobs with a Boiled Cider drizzle!
Right down the street from my house is a Lowes Foods. They recently added a section they call "SausageWorks". It is amazing. They smoke the sausage outside, and the parking lot smells heavenly! I dropped by the counter to see what they would recommend for my kabobs. They suggested the Bavarian sausage. It is a traditional German blend of house-made pork bratwurst sausage, and it is amazing! They told me that a customer took some home and reported back saying that he had been to many Oktoberfest celebrations when he was stationed in Germany and that Bavarian sausage tasted exactly the same. So that sold me!
I decided to change things up a little, by making kabobs instead of the traditional sandwich, adding peppers and onions, and topping it with an easy Boiled Cider drizzle. 
Sausage, Pepper and Onion Kabob w/ a Boiled Cider Drizzle
(Makes 4 Kabobs)
(printable recipe at end of post)

64 oz. Apple Cider
4 Bavarian Sausage Links
4 tbl. Butter
1 each Red, Yellow and Orange Pepper
1 Medium Yellow Onion
4 Skewers

Pour the apple cider into a non reactive pan. Heat on medium high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low for 4-5 hours. It should be reduced to a about 1 cup. You can test it by seeing if it will coat a spoon. Remove from heat and refrigerate. This can be done days before you cook the sausages.

Unwrap the sausages, and pierce with a fork in several places on each side.
Place sausages in a non stick pan and fill with about an inch of water. Bring to a boil. Cover the pan and reduce the heat, cooking for 10 minutes.
Chop peppers and onions. Cut onion in large pieces, and cut peppers into wide pieces. Saute each in 2 tablespoons of  butter and cook just until they are soft. Be careful not to overcook.
Remove sausage from pan and place on the grill. Turn so all sides are licked by the flames, about 2 minutes a side.
Cut the sausages diagonally.
Build each kabob with the peppers, onions, and sausage pieces.
Drizzle kabobs with cider drizzle.
Enjoy! Thanks for dropping by today!
