Scrumptious Caramel Apple Bites!




Today we are having a guest post by my second oldest daughter, Naomi:
One of my favorite thing’s about fall time is all the yummy food and treats. Pumpkin, apples, cocoa, caramel, chai tea, and soup are definitely the top ones! Sometimes the recipes for these foods are really complicated or time consuming, but this one isn’t. It did take a little bit longer than usual with the different steps but it was totally worth it. They turned out very good, everyone in my family loved them! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did and have fun making it!

Hello! My name is Naomi, and I am 16 years old. I'm the second oldest daughter in our family. I like to bake, cook, sew, read, practice my photography skills, have fun and spend time with my friends and family. I like to learn new things, grow my skills and am usually up for a challenge- whatever it may be. I want to travel the world when I grow up, but am safe and happy at home right now. 


"He says, 'Be still and know that I am God;
  I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth" 
-Psalm 46:10
