  2. Karen says:

    Oh my! that looks and sounds delicious.

  3. Lana Austin says:

    1. Thank you so much for visiting my blog & commenting!

    2. I love your recipe here–it looks wonderful!!!

    3. A fellow transplanted Alabamian who has also lived in multiple places–fabulous!!!

    4. I’ll start following you right now!


  4. I pinned this because these are complimentary ingredients and since you said it is really delicious. I never post anything I think is so-so, and it upsets me to make a recipe only to have to try to do something to salvage it. What a waste of time and money! But, when I find a good recipe I end up trying to force-feed everyone, I want them to love it like I do. 🙂

    We love all these flavors Jenna! I’ve made a pizza with the same combo, your galette is calling to me this morning! I just happen to have some extra apples too 🙂

  6. This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it. Wouldn’t have thought to add onions, but I’m sure it adds another layer of flavor. I’m visiting from It’s Overflowing.

    This looks delicious! Printed it and will make it soon – something has to be done with all my extra green apples I have on hand. Perfect!

    Hi, Jenna! I just wanted you to know I made this today – only my local grocer had no Gorgonzola. I made it with fresh Parmesan, which I always have on hand. It was delicious!!! Yesterday, Spunky Daughter made your Rolo Cake Mix Cookies. (Yes, it’s Painted Apron week!) Bad move, those cookies. I can’t stay out of them, and I sooo need to drop a few pounds. All those miles of bike riding this morning maybe balanced it out!?!?! I hope you don’t mind if I blog about your recipes soon. Their yumminess needs to be shared! Of course, I will link to your posts so readers can copy the recipe from your site. 🙂

    • Aren’t you sweet Kim, it is wonderful to have feedback and I am so thrilled you enjoyed the recipes! I must admit our batch of cookies got thrown out after 2 days because I kept eating them! Of course you can blog about the recipes, I am flattered! I should have mentioned in the galette recipe that any bleu cheese would work, but of course Parmesan is always delicious! Jenna

  9. Oh my goodness this looks delicious. It reminds me of a recipe I made for an appetizer for Thanksgiving a few years back. I’ll have to dig it out and compare recipes. I love these flavors together!

    I would have never thought onions and apples would go together, but it looks so good. I am going to have to experiment though. Thank you for sharing it on our Four Seasons Blog Hop.

  11. This looks amazing too! I’ve never mixed apples and cheese and it sounds really good:@)
