  1. My daughter and I attended our first Country Living Fair last September. It was amazing! We are looking forward to going back this year. For me anything made with apples is what I crave in the fall. I hope to see your presentation at the fair. Also, thank you for the chance to win tickets. That would be great.

    1. Hi Rebecca! You won a set of tickets!! Please email me at: so I can get them in the mail!! Congratulations!!!

  2. The Country Living Fair sounds amazing. I've never been to one, but I've heard many wonderful things about the Fair and if you're going to be there, well, what can I say. I have attempted to make your Double Topped Apple Pie, because at my house, apple pie is the favorite, and if my sorry attempt was as good as it was, I can only imagine how beautiful and delicious yours are. I would love to see you make it in person. Thank you for the chance to win tickets to the Country Living Fair.

  3. I would love to win the tickets and see you in action!

    1. Hi Karen!! You won a set of tickets!! Please email me you mailing address at: so I can get them in the mail!! Congratulations!!!

  4. Yes please! I would love to win these tickets (for my Mom and me).
    My favorite fall food is apple crisp, or anything pumpkin-y!

    1. Hi Lori Leigh!! You won a set of tickets!! Please email me your mailing address at: so I can get them in the mail to you!! Congratulations!!!

  5. Apple crumble - with vanilla ice cream!! My daughter and I went last year and made a girls weekend out of it. We had a blast! She has been begging me to go back!

  6. I love pumpkin roll. It is my favorite treat to make in the fall.
