Here’s what happened with the September Paint Bucket, beginning with the flavor of the month, apple  🍏   recipes:

 Apple Bacon Cheddar Sliders from Will Cook for Smiles reminded me of my Savory Apple Pie Quesadillas



Apple Recipe Round-up of my favorites from the past was featured on Miz Helen’s Country Cottage Full Plate Thursday



Caramel Apple Slab Pie from No Biggie turned into

Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies


I also made

Artichoke Bread from Closet Cooking turned into Spinach & Artichoke Stuffed Bread



Baked Brie with Fig and Walnuts from the Mediterranean Dish turned into Nutty Naan with Brie, Fig & Prosciutto




Cranberry Broccoli Almond Salad from My Recipes turned into Broccoli Salad with Nuts, Seeds, Berries and Sweet Sesame Dressing




Thai Peanut & Broccoli Stuffed Spaghetti Squash from Connoisseurus Veg turned into Stir Fry Spaghetti Squash with Coconut Chicken Bites




Chicken Cordon Bleu Lasagna from Chef in Training turned into Club Sandwich Lasagna



Peach Puff Pastry Tartlettes from the Creative Life in Between turned into Fruit Pastries with Almond Drizzle


It’s always hard to pick a favorite…we enjoyed them all, but if I had to choose…

My favorite recipe last month was the Fruit Pastries with Almond Cream, so easy to make, perfect for any time of day or occasion, and it can be changed up with a variety of fruit

I will be making this over and over~
