Mini Apple Pies Pampered Chef Recipe


I Lost It All

Several years ago, we moved from Louisiana to Arkansas.  After ripping through every single box that was packed, I was still missing my favorite kitchen gadgets and cookware.  These products were in two large very deep drawers under my oven.  The drawers were packed especially full of fabulous stoneware of all shapes and sizes.  After checking every box, my heart sank.  I knew which kitchen products were NOT packed, my Pampered Chef items.  What would I do?  Well, I have been upset about it for years.  I finally did something about it.

3 Reasons I Became A PC Consultant

This week, I decided to become a Pampered Chef Consultant.  Consultants not only earn extra income but being a consultant is a fabulous way to earn all of my Pampered Chef products back that I lost in our move.

I have been looking for years for the right products or Brand to promote on my blog.  Every blogger will tell you they have to pay the bills: hosting company, email subscriptions, recipe plugin, SEO plugin, and the expenses to run a blog go on and on.  For me, I only promote products I truly love.

Virtual Consultant

Because we all live extremely busy lives, I know I do, I will not be doing at home parties which is what Pampered Chef was built on.  I will be doing Virtual Parties.  YES!  All parties will be done on Facebook.

How Do Virtual Parties Work?

  • My virtual parties will be a Pampered Chef party on Facebook event.
  • I will share product videos, cooking tips, recipes, and, go live some too.
  • Party guests can join anytime from anywhere to learn how Pampered Chef products can benefit them in the kitchen.

How Are Virtual Parties Similar to/Different From In-Person Parties?

Have you ever been to a Pampered Chef Party?

  • Virtual parties follow the same format as an in-person party.
  • Like an in-person party, the virtual party will have a theme tailored to the host.
  •  Virtual parties come alive through engaging posts, videos, and Facebook Live.
  •  I will be sharing easy recipes while demonstrating the benefits and tips to using Pampered Chef products.

Working With Brands

The companies I promote have to have the same goal as I promote here at Recipes For Our Daily Bread.  I work hard to give you quick and easy recipes to help you put meals on the table for your family.  I truly believe the importance of eating around a table with family.  It builds stronger families who stick together.  Since it is so difficult having dinner as a family, I know having quick and easy go-to recipes helps.  Pampered Chef consultants show how the right tools and recipes make everyday cooking simpler and tastier.   Because I have used their products for decades, I know they do make recipes easier.  Their products will be a terrific marriage with my recipe blog, Recipes For Our Daily Bread.

World Food Championships

You may know in my spare time I compete in food competitions.  Desserts are my specialty.  In 2017 and 2018, I placed in the top 5 at the World Food Championships.  Not only did I place in the top 5 but I also had two rare perfect scores.

But let’s be real, I do not always have the time to cook desserts made from scratch.  The following recipes are easy enough anyone can whip them up.

DIY EDIBLE GIFT #1 Easy Gingerbread Cookies

Who does not love gingerbread cookies especially during the Christmas season?  These cookies are super easy to whip up because they are made using refrigerated cookie dough.  What makes them even easier to make is the tools used to make them.
