Apple Pie Bars

Reality just hit that we are officially four weeks away from the first day of school. Four weeks. Where the heck did summer go? I feel like I’m finally just getting a chance to slow down and enjoy the sunshine, but before you know it, the kids and I are going to be knee-deep in math homework, spelling quizzes, and sports equipment, so I guess I better enjoy these last few weeks while I can!

I was in the mood to do some baking the other day and found inspiration in a big, beautiful bag of Granny Smith apples that I had just picked up from the store. The boys and I love snacking on apple slices and peanut butter (creamy for them, chunky for me!), but I couldn’t help but crave a giant slice of warm, fresh apple pie after spotting those apples in my fridge. I needed some apple pie. ASAP.

So I pulled out my baking ingredients and got to work. As I started chopping up those bright green apples, I started thinking… what if I turned my regular apple pie into bars? Little individual, handheld bars that you could easily pack up for a picnic or the school lunches that will soon need to be packed every morning. I loved the idea and loved the amazing results of this glorious baking creation even more! So today I’ll show you how to make my Apple Pie Bars with a fresh apple filling, homemade double crust, and a sweet vanilla glaze drizzled on top!

These Apple Pie Bars are the perfect handheld dessert and SO delicious! Made with a fresh apple filling, homemade crust, and sweet vanilla glaze! | LoveGrowsWild.com [Continue reading...]

Welcome to my Office – Before

White Office

First, I just want to say a million thank you's for all the love you've shown on my living room makeover! That room challenged me in so many ways, and hearing your sweet compliments made all the late nights, million trips to Home Depot, and extra holes in my walls worth it. You guys rock! But after a few nights of good sleep and playing catch-up on all the laundry and dishes that were waiting for me (sorry, family), it's a new day and time to … [Continue reading...]

How to make Coconut Shrimp at home! This recipe for crispy coconut shrimp makes a delicious appetizer OR main dish! | LoveGrowsWild.com

Lately I've been getting tired of the same old chicken and beef recipes, so I've been adding more seafood into our meals. When I'm craving some light and healthy, I go for my spicy cilantro shrimp with honey lime dipping sauce. When I'm craving something with a little Mexican flair, I make these grilled tilapia bowls. But when I'm in the mood for some good, old-fashion fried comfort food, I make this Coconut Shrimp!   … [Continue reading...]
