12 Apple Recipes
These tasty apple ring pancakes are simple, easy, and make light and fluffy pancakes. Such a healthy, delicious recipe with fresh fruit and cinnamon.
This is another dessert on a dinner plate thing. It's a 9×13 pan-sized pancake full of diced apples and pecans. I like to serve it with eggs or sausage for a more filling meal.

Cheese is a theme for us because our kids love it, and they will eat a lot of things disguised with it. This soup has a base of cauliflower, but because it is puréed, they would never know. It's just full of cheesy goodness.
This delicious soup is loaded with fresh veggies and lots of cheese. Super quick and easy, this is the best comfort food for families in fall and winter. Low carb.
