Love Is... Free Printable

 Hi friends! 

You're probably here from instagram...thanks for popping over.  My boys start school tomorrow and while I am SO not ready for that, I am ready for one of my all time favorite activities...loving on all those teachers and staff. 

My lofty goal for the year is to make lots of printables to go with the goodies I give out.  I plan on sharing them here, so you can easily do the same!

I've been doing this sort of thing since my oldest was in preschool...making this my 8th year! I have a few tricks up my sleeve and lots of ideas.  I hope you'll be inspired to do what you can, where you can, with what you can!

Please please remember, anything is better than nothing.  I've heard more than once that teachers just love being noticed and thanked and appreciate and that does not take a grand gesture.

Tomorrow I am  bringing in this printable along with a little baggy of "hugs" and "kisses"  (from hershey).  Our theme this year is "I am...Love Does" hence the love inspired goodies. :) 

If not for school, I'm sure you can use it for something else. :) See the link below for the free download.

I like to drag it to a word file, resize it to a size that works for me and tile it on the page and print that way onto cardstock.

You can also download the shutterfly app and order them as 4 by 4in prints for FREE if you pay shipping.

Apple Cinnamon Honey Cake

A friend brought me some apples from her yard last week so I was on the hunt for a new apple kind of recipe to try.  Something that wasn't a pie or your usual expected apple dessert.  I am being dragged kicking and screaming into fall and I thought this would help.  It didn't but alas, we at least have a lovely end of summer dessert to show for it, right?


Apple Cinnamon Honey Cake

You'll need:
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 stick of butter melted
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Juice of 1/2 lemon or equivalent juice (I keep a bottle in the fridge)
4 apples
honey to drizzle


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray 8 by 8 pan and line with parchment paper. 

Combine flour, baking powder, 1 cup sugar and salt. 
Add eggs, butter and vanilla. Add batter to pan. 

Peel, core and slice apples, covering with lemon juice as you go. 
Add cinnamon and sugar to apples and toss to coat. Add apple slices to batter, arranging in rows for a pretty look.  

Bake for 30-40 minutes until center is set.  Allow to cool for a few minutes and drizzle lightly with honey. 

I then added a simple powdered sugar frosting.  A cup of powdered sugar, a tsp of vanilla and enough water or milk to make it drizzle! But this part is totally optional. 
Perfect with a cup of coffee!
