I hope you’re still loving apples as much as I am this season. I’m still creating ways to use our bounty from our afternoon of apple picking last weekend. We’ve made apple bread, apple tarts, tossed them in salads, & created centerpieces with them.  I find inspiration for projects & recipes in the most unlikely places – like a box nestled in a back corner of a basement. I was at an estate sale with a friend when I found some adorable glass apple dishes at – I couldn’t resist! They inspired me to make a apple & cheese soup! I was immediately reminded of the Melting Pot’s fabulous cheese fondue, served with Granny Smith apples. It’s one of my favorite combinations, so I used a couple of my favorite cheeses, soup basics & woila! A fabulous & easy apple & cheese soup! Our family ate every last drop of it.

This recipe takes slightly longer than most of mine {usually 10 or 15 minute dinners}, but it’s not all hands on time. It is really easy & did I mention, cheesy? Mmm!
