Apple Cake, Super-Fast, Tasty Style

Easiest quick apple cake

It’s Granny Smith apple season! They make the best applesauce- you don’t even need sugar. Well, IMO anyway. And they make awesome pies! But they are also perfect for this super-easy apple cake. It gets kind of busy this time of year, so it’s nice to have a dessert I can literally whip up in a few minutes. YUM.

Vegetarian Soup w. Roasted Peppers

Quick Chicken Alfredo

Plate w/ Fettucine, Chicken and Cream Sauce

“Leftovers”? Put to Work, and Awesome! This popular Italian pasta dish, with its creamy base and fresh garlic flavor, can utilize “leftover” chicken. Delicious! While “Fettucine Alfredo” is most traditional, we use rotelle pasta at The New Deli, which cooks up easily (it’s less likely to stick together). Our version is also lighter than most…
