Ain’t Too Proud To Beg!

by jerseygirl on September 28, 2009 · 30 comments

Readers, I need your help! I am in the Ile de France prettiest cheese platter contest and I am falling behind. If you could just click on this LINK, click on the stars and rank my platter I’d be forever grateful to you. You don’t have to sign up or log in to vote. There is one vote per computer only. If I don’t get enough votes, I might resort to using my video cam and singing a little cheese chant. You probably don’t want to watch that. Thank you for your support!

My family and I went apple picking last week and here is a picture of the kiddos in the orchards. Now, what apple desserts should I  make. Any suggestions?
