SO I have some exciting news!!

Next week I am heading CROSS COUNTRY with my brother and dad to drive all the way from Virginia to California for one long road trip!  I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve honestly never really been off the east coast except for a wedding once in Michigan and a Vegas trip (yep to see Brit Brit) so this is super exciting for me!  Not only am I fortunate to spend the time with my brother who just got back from living in Japan for the past three years, but we’ve mapped out a fun little itinerary that includes pit stops in Nashville, Memphis, Texas, the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, Death Valley then arrive in California!

Ha okay I guess that’s not so little.

We’re hoping to complete this trip in about 5 to 6 days so I’m not sure we’ll get to see everything we’ve mapped out, but I’m definitely excited for the adventure!  Unfortunately this means my brother will now be stationed in California for the next 5 years, but hey I’m happy to go visit ANY time!  I swear I’m a California girl at heart.  If anyone has ever done a coast to coast trip, please share with me any suggestions!!  Also feel free to follow me on SNAPCHAT (my username is EatUrselfSkinny) as I’ll be documenting our entire road trip 🙂

Apple Cider Oatmeal Crisp | Eat Yourself Skinny

Now about this delicious apple cider oatmeal crisp.  Are you salivating yet?

Last weekend my husband and I made a trip to Charlottesville which, let me just say, is one of the most gorgeous places to visit in the fall.  Literally.  One of my favorite things to do aside from going to wineries is visiting Carter Mountain Apple Orchard and going apple picking, sipping on homemade cider and enjoying their incredible apple cider donuts.  I’m just going to tell you right now that we definitely did not leave empty handed – WHOAH did we bring back home some yummy goodies!  With all the apples and cider that we now had on hand, I knew I wanted to come up with a ton of fall recipes.  Oh em gee this baked oatmeal has insane flavor with apple cider, maple syrup, cinnamon, allspice, vanilla… need I go on??

Top everything with vanilla ice cream and I’ve gone straight to heaven.

This recipe makes such a cozy, comforting dish and our kitchen smelled absolutely amazing afterwards!  I urge you all to make this oatmeal crisp this weekend and win major brownie points with the men/women in your life – my hubby gobbled his right up!

    Currently waiting for this deliciousness to come out of the oven! I am a Marine wife from San Diego and we have crossed the US three times as well. We are about to do it again this summer. It really is a neat trip…so much to see. Hope you got to see the Grand Canyon. I’m sorry that Texas felt like forever and that you were making no progress! haha. Next trip you’ll have to check out Zion! Love Nashville. I am a Scentsy/Velata consultant and our next reunion is in Nashville. Can’t wait. Kelly, thank you for all your recipes. I have used soooo many. Love the Best Salsa Ever Recipe. It’s a favorite in our house. I’ve only had one #copykellyfail and that was the sweet potato fries. 🙁 I don’t think I dried them enough!

      Ohh thank you so much for the suggestions and please send my love to your hubby! My brother is absolutely loving San Diego now that he is stationed there so if we ever make that trip again I’ll definitely check out Zion 🙂 Hope you enjoy the apple crisp and that it makes your home smell amazing!! I’m SO sorry the sweet potato fries didn’t work out – next time try adding a little salt to them while they dry out, that should soak up any excess moisture OR add a little more cornstarch – that makes them nice and crispy! 🙂 Happy Holidays! xo
