Easy "Family Approved" Apple Crisp

Each year when Fall rolls around I can't help myself but start baking...everything! Pumpkins, Apples you name it..I want to bake delicious desserts with all the season goodies! Anyways...in my household the man of the house isn't a big apple guy and the girls were turned off by the oat topping on every single apple crisp, apple crumble. apple bake I ever made.  I decided to just omit the oats and keep the crisp, basically just serving up the deliciousness inside of an apple pie.  It was a HIT. My husband still calls it his favorite fall dessert (and HELLO it has apples in it lol) and the girls literally scoop this stuff down like its ice cream.  Oh with that being said this is excellent with some vanilla ice cream! 
Ingredients:
Topping:
-1/2 cup Flour
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1/2 tsp baking powder
-1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
-1/3 cup unsalted butter (I cut these into small chunks..you will want the butter room temp)
-pinch of salt 

Filling:
-5 Large Granny Smith Apples, peeled and sliced thi…

-Keep checking chicken until its cooked through.  Once chicken is white and cooked throughout add balsamic vinegar all over the strips.  Turn heat down to medium and just let sit.  The balsamic will coat the chicken..leave on heat until desired look...we lik…

Fall Tablescape

I decided to put together my Fall Tablescape to help me get in the autumn spirit! We have so many things going on right now that pulling out all my decor and messing around with decorating isn't my top priority. Although, I would like to get in the swing of things so dressing my table always helps!
I haven't bought much new decor this season..just the faux marble pumpkin you will see pictured (Dollar Spot) and that amazing wreath I found at Marshalls a few weeks ago.  That being said for this Tablescape I simply "shopped" around what I had brought out of storage already.  There are no real pumpkins out yet down here in Florida so I only used my faux ones. Which works out fine because I heart them! 
I wanted to make this Tablescape to be a little different than previous years (plus my leaf placemats are still buried away in the garage lol) so I went looking through the linen closet on a mission.  I ended up pulling out some summer green cloth placemats from IKEA and usi…
