We have FALLen head over heels for fresh Fall fruits! While everyone else may be fawning and swooning over pumpkin-this, pumpkin-that, we’ll take a Garden Fresh apple, any day! If you’re as wild about apples as we are, you should see the other apple recipes we’ve dished out already! (Oh, did I mention that they’re both desserts?)
