Breakfast – quite possibly one of my favorite meals to eat as well as cook. Now this pancake recipe is easy as pie – forget the bisquick and krusteaz people!! It’s really as easy as just mixing a few ingredients together, and what’s better, is you probably already have the ingredients at home – which is always my favorite.

After making my Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes I knew that I had to make more mini cheesecakes with other fall flavors. And it’s no surprise that I immediately settled on apple. These little delights are filled with homemade applesauce and topped with sliced apples and homemade caramel sauce. And WOW are they good!

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. The smells, the food, the holidays and all of apple and pumpkin flavors. Pumpkin is something that I have not used in anything other than pumpkin pie. But this Fall, I am branching out and finally incorporating one of my favorite fall flavors into my recipes. This recipe uses canned pumpkin puree to create delectable mini pumpkin cheesecakes. The aroma filling the house on a chilly evening was exactly what I had been waiting for all year. I just love it! The other great thing about this recipe is the crust – gluten free. Instead of the typical graham cracker or Oreo crust you generally see on cheesecakes, this uses oatmeal, which was surprisingly tasty and has a great texture. I can’t wait to use it for other cheesecake recipes, I’m thinking of doing a caramel apple or apple crisp cheesecake next. Look out cupcakes, I think mini cheesecakes are the new delicacy in my house!

And of course Fall is my favorite because Thanksgiving is coming!!

Here’s the recipes… Read the rest of this entry »
