The saying goes, as we know, that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. These days I’m more concerned about getting the right herbal supplements than eating apples. That said, however, I can’t resist a delicious, homemade caramel apple. Usually I’ll catch them on sale at Kroger and score a four pack. They’re the perfect mid-day snack when I’m craving something sweet. And, hey. There’s an apple hiding in there. So it’s still sort of healthy, right?

Making your own caramel apples, however, is relatively inexpensive. And that you can add your own favorite toppings is a huge plus. This caramel apples recipe is perfect for a weekday treat, an after school snack for the kids or a cake alternative at parties. (Although for a grown up holiday party, I totally recommend these bourbon balls for snacking.)

While you can buy apples from the grocery store or farmers market, I highly recommend a drive to a local orchard. Not only are fresh picked apples more delicious than those that have been kept in cold storage, you also don’t have to worry about the wax they use on apples so they look shiny at the supermarket.

The Best Ice Cream Milkshake Recipes

Ice cream milkshakes are a favorite summertime treat. Not only are they cold and delicious, they’re fairy easy to make. Simply mix three big scoops of your favorite ice cream flavor with 2 ounces of milk in a blend. Then add your favorite toppings! For a thinner ice cream milkshake, you can add extra milk. Alternately, if you are out of milk, try using an almond milk vanilla creamer in its place. You can also make a grown up version of your favorite ice cream milkshakes by substituting the milk with liquor instead.

The milkshake combinations, when you think about it, are almost endless. So whether you like your ice cream milkshakes spiked or kid-safe, topped with cookies or cotton candy, or drowning in caffeine, here are my favorite (mostly grown up) versions of ice cream milkshake recipes to try this summer.

Let’s Make Brown Sugar Drop Cookies!

When I was a little girl I baked with mom a lot. There are printed photographs still hanging around of me somewhere. My mom has numerous stashed photo albums from the 70s and 80s hidden in various boxes in her basement storage. In them are photos of me from about four years old on, baking cookies. Of course, in most of those photos I’m licking cookie dough batter off a spoon. Still, I still seemed to have grasped the concept of baking at a young age.

Not only did I learn that raw cookie dough is delicious. I also learned that if you want to eat raw cookie dough you had to actually make at least some of the cookies. These days, when I’m feeling lazy, I just pick up refrigerated cookie dough from the grocery store. Nothing, however, quite beats making homemade cookies from scratch. And I’ve found that by making something I enjoy eating, baking – and even cooking for that matter – really is a joy filled self care activity.

Back in the days when I was still under five feet tall and drawing with crayons was my favorite past time, I loved to bake snickerdoodles with my mom. You can of course roll these brown sugar cookies in a combo of cinnamon and sugar before baking them if you like. But these brown sugar drop cookies are actually delicious all on their own. And, this is a great cookie recipe to inspire a young (undiscovered) baker you may have in your own home.

Despite the name, these brown sugar drop cookies aren’t overly sweet. What they are, however, is pretty darn perfect. And quite frankly, I’ve never made an easier cookie. So, whether you’re getting back to your roots with some simple, old fashioned baking, or if you’re simply learning a new skill, this homemade brown sugar cookie recipe is a keeper.
