I’m not a germaphobe by any means but I can’t eat fruit if it hasn’t been washed. I got this Fruit and Veggie spray from The Honest Company. It wipes away pesticides, pathogens, wax, dirt, germs, & more with their 100% natural, non-toxic formula that leaves fruits & vegetables truly clean. Just spray on the fruit let sit for a minute or two and wash with water!Simple Baked Apple Recipe | www.amylorraineblog.com

Then bake those apple slices after you mix them with the cinnamon sugar at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.Simple Baked Apple Recipe | www.amylorraineblog.com

ENJOY! It is so good! 🙂

Five on Friday

Five On Friday | September 6th 2013 | www.amylorraineblog.com

1. Started with rain and it didn’t look like the only beach vacation I was going to take this summer was going to get good weather.

2. But luckily the weather was perfect on Saturday and there was a bit of good weather for Sunday too. I have tan lines! Yay me! #LittleThings

3. Fisher’s Popcorn is highly addictive. We ate like 3 giant bucks worth of caramel popcorn. No shame.

4. I’m not a big pizza person. Every once and a while sure, but too much pizza is  not a good thing. But Ledo’s pizza. I LOVE IT! and their Italian Salads are perfection!

5. WATER-MELÒN season is getting ready to end. Have you seen the watermelon vine? Enjoy if you haven’t. LOL

This five on friday is a little different as all the images are from the same night!

1. Me and my momma! Waiting for everyone else to get to dinner to celebrate my dad’s new job!

2. Brio’s pineapple upside down cake. If you go to Brio and don’t order this, you are missing out. Probably my favorite ever!

3. My sister and her best friend wanted to match me. For the record, I was dressed first.

4. Family photo ya’ll! We rarely get everyone together and with my brother getting ready to move to Florida we know this wont happen very often!

5. My most photogenic model. She loves having her picture taken and this was one of the many faces that night

1. These are my favorite twins! It is NEVER a dull moment when I go out with these two. Had a blast going out in Annapolis on Saturday!

2. Chocolate chip waffles! I don’t even think I need to say anything else.

3. This was my Throwback Thursday of the week. Two of my best friends Kristie and Brittany, circa 2006, my senior year in high school! I’m so excited to get to spend the weekend with them and my other best friend Ali at Brittany’s place in Pennsylvania!

4. Once again.. whats with this weather. Crazy loud thunderstorms and pure gloominess. Ready for some sunshine!

5. Love this quote. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! So true. Just be yourself because you can’t please everyone.

1. Its a lens, its a mug.. its a lens mug! How cute. Finally getting this birthday present to good use!

2. Aren’t these earrings super cute!? I won them in a giveaway hosted by Hey Diddle Diddle Photography! Thanks Kate! I LOVEEEEE THEM 🙂 They’re from Bevin Bold Jewelry!

3. Chocolate Covered Strawberries anyone? I’m actually not a big fan of strawberries by itself, unless there is a lot of sugar or whipped cream covering them. But dipped in chocolate? OKAY, that works too!

4. We haven’t had much of a summer so far. I can’t believe its already July and I have not been to the beach or a pool! Rain, go away!

5. My mom and brother made dinner. It was delicious! Homemade Mac n Cheese, BBQ Chicken, Watermelon and Corn Salsa. I could probably eat Mac n Cheese everyday, but then again who wouldn’t?

I wanted to try the super simple recipe I saw on Pintrest. How fun will these be on Easter Morning?  The rolls came in a pack of 8 so you get 4 bunnies. Cinnabunny Recipe | AmyLorrainePhotography.com

Take four rolls and leave them in the spiral. Unroll the other four and fold them in half twice to make the ears. Squish together and bake! Drizzle with icing and enjoy! Cinnabunny Recipe | AmyLorrainePhotography.com
