Crockpot Recipe : Apple Cobbler

Slow Cooker  * Apple Cobbler 





 

  • 40 ounces apple pie filling 2 20-oz cans, 1 can if using a crock smaller than 4.5 quart
  • 16 ounce box white cake mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter melted


Empty both cans of apple pie filling into the crock. If you like, sprinkle apples with cinnamon sugar.. Mix cinnamon into the dry cake mix, then sprinkle dry cake mix mixture on top of the apples. Spoon the melted butter onto the cake mix layer. Do not mix the butter with the cake mix. The moisture generated from the slow cooker will bake the cake. Cook on high setting for 4 hours (or on low for 6 hours).. Serve in bowls with ice cream. 

Color my World

Hi ! I am Lisa and Welcome to my blog. 


If you are like me 2020 has been a stressful year. I lost my parents  and weathered 3 Hurricanes here in Louisiana. But crafting is a great stress relief : 

REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY
Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest after a long day at work.

Halloween Tags

 

It's 

What does Halloween symbolize?
The history of Halloween goes all the way back to a pagan festival called Samhain. The word "Halloween" comes from" All Hallows' Eve" and means "hallowed evening." Hundreds of years ago, people dressed up as saints and went door to door, which is the origin of Halloween costumes and trick-or-treating


It's Tag Tuesday this Halloween. My two purple tags are decorated with symbols of Halloween  that is layered on a solid base. Enjoy my Halloween tags.

Tag Tuesday Is Pink

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month 

Why do we wear pink for breast cancer?
The pink ribbon represents fear of breast cancer, hope for the future, and the charitable goodness of people and businesses who publicly support the breast cancer movement. It is intended to evoke solidarity with women who currently have breast cancer.
