Modern Rose Print Apron and Fun Ways to Serve Caramel Apples

Halloween and the other fall holidays are definitely my favorite holidays of the year.  I love the foods with the apples, squash and pumpkins and everything else that you can only get in the fall.  The problem is that sometimes you can’t get everyone to eat fall foods which is why I like to make them a bit more fun.  Instead of serving butternut squash, I make chips out of it with cinnamon and cayenne peppers and instead of regular pumpkin pies, I add in random spices to make it either spicy or chocolate to make it taste different.  In this post I created to ways to serve apples with caramel that make caramel apples fun for adults for a dessert and the perfect way to get your kids to eat apples.  However, before we go into the caramel apples, here is the perfect modern rose print apron to match the recipe and serve your caramel apples with.

Caramel apples for adults.

This one is extremely easy to make and more fun to serve.  In the picture I just placed it on a cutting board, but you could easily serve this on a plate for each person.  All you need is two apples (I used fuji apples because I like that they are sweet and they are short and wide so they are easy to carve the insides out), caramel sauce and a knife.

Take your knife and cut the top part of the apple out.  Then take your knife and at an angle carve out a cone shape from the inside of the middle of the apple.  Now take your knife and put it in the apple so that it is at an angle and turn the apple so that you get a peel coming out and you can hollow out the inside of the apple for the caramel sauce.  Now take the caramel sauce and pour it into the inside of the apple.

Now take the second apple and use an apple slicer to cut exact slices and then place them along the side of apple.  Then take the top part and lay it against the side of the apple.  This makes an awesome presentation and is a fun way to serve a caramel apple for adults.  They can dip the slices into the hollowed out apple and if they are still hungry they can actually eat the rest of the apple which should still have caramel inside it.

This is a really fun way to serve caramel apples to your kids.  Instead of worrying about your kids hurting themselves with the stick, getting everything messy if the apple falls off or even getting caramel all over their clothes or your table cloth.  All you do is hollow out the first apple like you did for the apple above.  Then take a pumpkin carving kit that you could buy anywhere or buy clicking on this link.  Now carve out a face like you would for a jack o lantern and you have an applelantern.  Now take your applelantern and put the top of the apple top side down on the plate.  Then place the applelanetern on top of the top of the apple.  Now pour caramel into the top of the apple so that it comes through the mouth.  Then take more caramel sauce and pour it over the bottoms of the apples. Now you have a fun way to get your kids to eat apples and have a less messy and less dangerous version of a caramel apple.

Fabulous pizza cups recipe.

This one is super easy to do and amazingly easy.  You can even make it with your kids, just make sure they don’t go near or use the oven since that is a huge risk.

What you will need for the pizza cups:

  • 1 muffin tin
  • Thin crust pizza dough
  • Your favorite sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • A mix of three shredded cheese (parmesan, asiago and your other favorites.)

Pre heat the oven to 425 degrees.  Now take the pizza dough and roll it out flat.  Now cut out large circles so that you can place them inside of the muffin tin and the tops are just over the edge.  Now take your favorite sauce, I like to use either tomato with garlic and basil or I do a pesto or buffalo sauce, and pour a little bit into the cups.  Now take a slice of the mozzarella and and whatever toppings you like, pepperoni, basil, mushrooms, etc… and lay them on top.  Now take the shredded cheese and add a layer on top of that.

After you’ve finished all of the pizza cups, place the muffin pan in the oven for 15 or 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted.  I usually take a cooking thermometer as well to make sure the middle is hot and everything is melted together.  When everything is cooked, take the muffin tin out of the oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes.  Now take the pizza cups out of the oven, place them on a plate and serve them.  These are extremely easy and fun to make and everyone will love them. You can also get more creative and add another circle over them to make them look like small pies which is even more fun for everyone.

Black & Pink Modern Floral Apron – Zucchini Tomato Pizza Recipe

zuchini and tomato pizza recipe

zuchini and tomato pizza recipe

The other day I made this amazing zucchini and tomato pizza that to me seems much more healthy than a regular pizza and if you are having a party, you can slice it into one and two bite slices for a perfect appetizer and finger food for your guests.  Not only was it amazing to eat, but I also had to make it again after because it was extremely easy and actually kind of fun to do.  Sorry about the bad photo quality, I used my iPhone.  Anyways, it also reminded me of a fun party styled black and pink floral apron that you could completely show this dish off in.  So after I show you the apron below, get ready to buy a zucchini squash and have this amazing and healthier version of pizza that even your kids will love.

black and pink modern apron for women Black & Pink Modern Apron for Women – $33.95

What I love about this apron isn’t just that it has an amazing and dramatic pink floral print on the front of it, but everything in the print is accented perfectly by the pitch black background and the amazing and gorgeous black neck straps and waist straps that tie in front with a bow to create drama with this look.  This black and pink floral apron for women has a vintage print with an amazingly modern style, cut and design.
One of the most popular twists to turn this black and pink womens apron into a modern look is the single ruffled bottom that runs along the entire bottom of this apron and shrinks as it moves upwards to the lower middle section of the apron perfectly outlining the bottom and making it rounded off.  You’ll love the ruffles and fringes and with the black waist straps tied in a bow around your waist with the ends of the bow hanging off in front of the ruffle, you’ll go crazy for this amazing black and pink womens apron and never want to take it off.  Not to mention that it easily matches meals and dishes that you serve with herbs, greens and vegetable plates like the one below.  I highly recommend you buy this black and pink apron for women as it is a must have for the modern and classic women who likes to cook with organic and natural ingredients, leaves, greens and vegetables.

zucchini pizza recipe

Now that you’ve seen this gorgeous black and pink modern floral apron for women, here is my recipe for zucchini pizza that you would be crazy not to love.

You will need:

  • zucchini squashes (1 large one per person)
  • chopped garlic
  • minced shallot
  • sea salt
  • ground pepper
  • large fresh mozzarella balls
  • brown heirloom or campari tomatoes
  • basil
  • oregano
  • cheese shreds (asiago, fontine, parmesan mix)
  • extra virgin olive oil

Start by chopping off the end of the zucchini squash with the stem.  Now slice it long ways in half and take a spoon and scoop out a bit of the inside so you can lay the other ingredients just inside of it and they’ll stay in place.  Now take about a tea spoon or table spoon of the extra virgin olive oil and pour it into the where you scooped out the zucchini squash.  Now sprinkle on sea salt, pepper (just a pinch on both to cover it randomly), take the chopped garlic and line the center of the zucchini with it (I use a ton of it since I love garlic) and now sprinkle the basil and oregano onto the garlic.  Now slice the tomatoes or half them if they are small enough and lay on top of the zucchini.  Place this in the oven for about 20 minutes on 425…you can do 30 if it doesn’t look like the zucchini is drying out.  Now remove from the oven and take the tomatoes off of the top.  Now slice a large chuck of mozzarella cheese into discs.  Now lay them long ways across the zucchini so that they cover the garlic, etc… and place the tomatoes back over the mozzarella, then sprinkle the shredded cheese over lightly.  Now place it back in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese melts and starts to brown, or place it on a high rack under the broiler so that it melts and browns faster.  The other option is to put it on a low or medium rack for 10 minutes then put it on broil for another 5 or ten or until the cheese melts and turns brown.  Now remove from the oven, let it cool and slice or serve however you’d like.

Spicy Lemon Chicken Burgers

If you’re looking for the perfect summer meal to serve with your brand new apron, my recipe for Spicy Lemon Chicken Burgers are absolutely perfect for you.  I thought of the recipe years ago and haven’t made it for a while, but will definitely be using it again this summer for my friends.

Ground chicken meat

Chopped garlic

2 Lemons

2 or 3 Jalapenos

Cheese of your choice (Chihuahua, Swiss or something white and creamy or strong)

Take skinless and boneless chicken breasts and have the butcher grind them.  If you can find ground chicken meat, then don’t worry about this part.  Now place the ground chicken meat in a large bowl.  Take two or three jalapenos and cut them into slices or rings and add about three rings per burger that you are making.  You can also dice them if you want.  I prefer jalapeno rings instead.  Add in the chopped garlic (you can add as much as you like so it tastes as strong as you’d like) and now squeeze two lemons into the meat.  (Only use one lemon if you are doing 3 or 4 burgers as the lemon comes out strong.

Take the burger meat with everything combined and mix it all together.  Now make your burger patties and throw on a very small dash of salt.  Now place the burgers on your grill and let them cook.  Once they are about done, take a slice or as much cheese as you want and place it on the burger with a lid or bowl covering it so it melts onto the burger.  Now place the burger on a bun and top the bun with a jalapeno ring and if you want, zest your lemons and place some lemon zests around the plate or on the burger as well if you have it opened face for a more fun presentation.  Now you have some amazing Spicy Lemon Chicken Burgers to serve with your favorite summer drinks.

Green and Purple Aprons & Pistachio & Lemon Cupcakes Recipe

So I woke up this morning (It’s Sunday but I’m lining the post up for later this week) and was craving cake. I don’t know how you feel about Sunday brunch but I crave moist, thick and dense cakes. When looking through my cabinet on what I wanted to surprise people with for brunch I found a fabulous lemon cake batter and was inspired to alter it to make it a fun Lemon and Pistachio cupcake with a lemon butter cream frosting. I also went to one of my favorite apron shops online and found this fabulous green and purple apron to match my mood for the cupcakes.

Green and Purple Apron

Brunch for me means filling food that are thick and leave you ready for a nap until dinner time. That’s why I love this purple and green apron.  I found these fun purple cupcake holders from mardi gras that were left over and the yellow and green reminded me of the lemons and pistachios that I am using in the batter.  (BTW, you can buy the green and purple apron and find more by clicking on the image or links above).  What you cannot see in this picture, but you can on the site, is that this green and purple apron had extremely long purple straps on the top and the waist straps match the design and pattern of the fabric on the rest of the green and purple apron.  You can use these to tie a purple bow on top or a long elegant one in the back.  It sort of makes cooking and baking more fun when your outfit matches your meals and you can really get a good feeling inside when starting to mix the ingredients which I think helps add love and extra flavor into your dishes.

You always hear Chefs talking about cooking with love.  I completely agree that when you are cooking and feeling the food and putting love into it, it somehow comes out better like your good emotions help make the food more enjoyable, and the people who are eating food made with love can somehow tell and enjoy it more.  Things like this green and purple apron help me to motivate in the kitchen and feel even better about my recipes and put more love into.  I’m sort of tacky in that I always dress and decorate to match my food and themes for the meal, but at the same time it helps me set the mood and really add love into my meals.  I know my friends enjoy it as well and that is one of the reasons I love these apron shops.

Finding these fun designer aprons with the double rows of fringes, extra details and vintage or modern designs really makes it more fun to cook.  When my friends come early to dinner they always love seeing the clothes I’m wearing and these fun styles always get them to want to take pictures and get them in the mood to help.  Everyone loves fun clothing and all of that good energy somehow goes into the food and makes the meal even better.   Anyways, here is what I did to make my lemon and pistachio cupcakes.  I can’t wait for them to come out of the oven.

Lemon and Pistachio Cupcake recipe.

2 or 3 lemons

1 cheese grater

Lemon cake batter – and everything you’ll need for the mix

your favorite butter cream frosting recipe – or a canned version

1/2 cup of shelled pistachio nuts – you can do a full cup if you love them like I do

First mix your lemon cake batter and pour it into the cupcake holders or pan if you are not using holders.  Now drop some of the shelled pistachios in, you may want to chop them first and leave a few whole.  Now place them in the oven for as long as the recipe calls for.  While those are in the oven, make your butter cream or take the canned frosting and squeeze 1 lemon’s juice into it.  (I like to push the lemon against the counter and move it around with pressure before so I can get a ton of juice out).  Now mix the frosting so it all blends in.  (If you want more lemon taste, add more lemon juice).  Now chop 3/4 of the remaining pistachios and leave the rest whole.  You’ll also want to zest the lemons so you get gorgeous yellow zests for decoration.

Now put the icing in an icing bag and when your cupcakes come out and cool off, put the icing on the cupcakes.  (You can also pull out some of the center and pour in some extra pistachios so there is a good fun texture in the middle).  When all of the cupcakes have icing on them, sprinkle the pistachio chunks on them and then lightly drop lemon zests over them.  After you finish with that, take one whole pistachio and lay it on top of the cupcake.  If you really want to be creative, take a lemon wheel and cut 1/4 of it out and let the 3/4 wheel hang from the top to the side of the cupcake.

I absolutely love the smell coming from the oven right now and was inspired by this fun green and purple apron, as well as the ingredients in my cabinet.  If you like this recipe, don’t forget to come back and leave a comment after making it and also to buy the apron above to help keep this blog going.  Thank you for reading and come back soon.
