Babies, Italian, and Apple Pie

It's baby season! ...meaning there have been several new little ones lately. The kiddos and I wanted to visit, but I remember being a new mom. After the overwhelm of visitors in the hospital, it is relieving to be home alone with a snuggly, smooshy new baby. The last thing I wanted to do as a new mom was plan dinner and cook! We decided to make a few quick trips to provide a meal and take a peak at some sweet newborns!

After a lot of searching, I found a great meal to deliver to the new mommas. A little more gourmet than I am used to cooking, but these lasagna roll ups from Cooking Classy were easy and portable for our visit. They feature a cheese mixture and homemade meat sauce all rolled up into individual lasagna noodles. This is also a great freezer meal to make in bulk and for gatherings!

I also made my favorite Scrumptious Apple Pie from The Pioneer Woman! I made this pie for a local fall festival apple pie contest and it was amazing! No fancy spices used...just the amazing flavor of juicy apples. I use a mix of Braeburn and Granny Smith to give it a delicious balance of sweet and tart. 

If you have never gambled to make a pie crust from scratch, Sylvia's Perfect Pie Crust is easy and well...perfect! 

The best part is we got to meet little Makayla and Hampton and were overjoyed to offer some help and good food!
