I absolutely love all the things you can do with apples especially in the fall.  Last week I made an apple cake with apples my friends brought home from the orchard.  It is a simple cake that you just stir up by hand.  I was just visiting over at http://cakeduchess.com and http://cafeterrablog.com and reading some great apple recipes on the Apple Bloghop.  I have many to go because I want to check them all out but back to my story…reading those made me crave Caramel Apple Salad.  The recipe was given to me by my best friend Susan and was called Taffy Apple Salad…I renamed it because it tastes just like a caramel apple to me! The great thing about this recipe is that you also just stir it up in a bowl and takes just minutes!   I also love making my own caramel apple cider (a starbucks copycat) and my son makes a Apple Pie Shine (alcoholic) but you would never know there is alcohol in there, in fact it is so decieving that it should come with a warning label on every glass!  I hope you make and  enjoy the caramel apple salad as much as I know I am going to!!!!!
