Texas is currently experiencing record breaking temperatures. It’s HOT, it’s humid and honestly if you aren’t in a pool, you have no business being outside. People have posted pictures of tar in parking lots actually MELTING and bubbling.
I have been using my Instant Pot and Slow Cooker a LOT to avoid heating up the house with the oven. This easy ice box cake requires NO heat whatsoever and comes together really quickly. Plus, it’s a nice cold treat. Make this for your family or bring this to your next summer poolside potluck!
FYI, I used strawberries and blueberries for this easy ice box cake this time. However, my family prefers this with strawberries, raspberries & blackberries. I just knew I was going to photograph it this time, and thought the strawberry/blueberry combo would be prettier 😉 . All that to say, what fruit you use is up to you!

What do you consider Fall weather? After the scorching summer we have had in Texas, I was getting the Fall decorations out when the temperatures dropped into the low 90’s! Today, the high was in the 70’s and we are wearing sweaters. 😉 This kind of weather makes me want to pull out all of my “cold weather” recipes. Since I found apples on sale last week, I had to start with applesauce. This is a very kid friendly recipe. My daughter was making it, with apples that I peeled and cored, when she was 8 years old. It’s a Fall tradition at our house. Let me know what you think.
Homemade APPLESAUCE (with a twist!)
8 – 10 medium apples (you can use more or less – it really doesn’t affect the recipe too much)
1 bag Red Hot candies (or several boxes if you can’t find a bag)
1 cup water
Peel and core apples, then chop them into fairly small pieces. Put in crock pot, top with Red Hot’s and a cup of water. Cook on low for about 8 hours. We like them in large chunks, but you can mash them with a potato masher or spoon them out of the liquid and put them in the blender to make a saucier consistency. If you like wassail or spiced cider, try dipping some of the juice into a mug.
