Though I enjoy apples all year round, there really is nothing like a crisp, perfect apple come fall. The past two years, my sister and I have gone apple-picking, which was a blast! I also enjoy scoping out the selection at local farmers markets. Sure you can find some of those varieties in the stores, but I’d rather give my time and business to the farmers themselves when I can.

HelloFresh is highlighting apples this month too! This nifty infographic shows off a few of my favorites:

I posted something like this a few years ago and then kind of forgot about it. Recently, though it’s become one of my go-to snacks again. It tastes just like apple pie but without the hassle of actually, well,baking a pie. It’s delicious on its own (I especially love with a spoonful of peanut butter-Surprise, surprise) or as a topping for yogurt or oatmeal.


Shortcut Apple Pie



  1. Mix ingredients together in a microwave-safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on HIGH 1-2 minutes or until soft. Pause a few times during cooking to evenly distribute heat.

If you’re feeling ambitious and want to make a real, honest to goodness apple pie, my mom’s recipe is my all-time fave : )

Looking for a savory apple recipe? HelloFresh has some great ones on their blog. The roasted pork tenderloin with caramelized apple glaze is totally calling my name.
