I think I can smell that apple cake baking right now. Can't wait for this kitchen to be finished so I can start cooking again. This will certainly be a recipe I'll try.
Love the sunset picture. Texas gals sure must be sweet on sunsets... check my blog and see if we weren't looking at the same sunset!
Have a blessed day,
