I couldn’t let a special day like National Dessert Day go by without sharing a yummy dessert with you!

Perfect for apple picking season, these Caramel Apple-Nut Bars are delicious and super easy too!

Picking apples is one of those family activities that we all enjoy! There are some things, like going to the Pumpkin Patch or picking Apples, that is an ageless activity, even my teenagers enjoy the time we spend there.
