A Recap....with pictures

Let's see if I can get all these promised pictures for you posted in some order that makes sense.

First of all: Apple Time

We started with apples....a half bushel to be exact.

I cooked down the apple pulp, put it through the food mill and then it went into the oven for a couple hours, that didn't cook it down the way I thought it would, so I stuck it in the crockpot overnight

While the apple butter was in the oven I decided to try some Cran-Apple cider jelly....it came out great!! Personally I love it!

When I got up the next morning the apple butter still wasn't done so I put in a pot and cooked it down (nearly 2 hours). Then it went into canning jars, processed 10 minutes and then YAY!!! apple butter is done....and so tasty!

Brad's Birthday Banana Pudding Cheesecake
I found the recipe at examiner.com
The way I figure anything that starts with 4 blocks of cream cheese must be good

Nilla Wafer crust, a layer of sliced bananas then the creamy cheesecake goodness....bake and eat

It was REALLY good! Next time I'm going to leave out the sliced bananas and put them on top instead.....they were a strange consistency after they baked.....Yummy, but rubbery.
