Happy Easter and a sunday recap

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, I know I sure did!

I woke up early this morning and had to run to the store and buy the ingredients for baked brie that my grandma has asked me to make (i was too lazy last night to go...) and I happened to pick up a little something for bubs after the surprise that he gave me last night (its not much, but starbucks can make anyone's morning - right?)

I came home and prepared the baked brie before heading to my parents and then going to church. Our sermon was wonderful. It was one of those sermons when the pastor talks about 3 different things throughout the entire service, but then at the end it all comes together so nicely... i love messages that make you think and God is our lives at all times.

After church, we went to my parents house, changed into more comfortable clothes, and then headed over to my Grandparents. We had an AMAZING meal - and we were all stuffed when we came home!

Here is the recipe for the baked brie that I brought to my grandparents house today

1 tube of crescent rolls
1 large wheel of brie
1 cup of chopped pecans
3 tablespoons of honey
sprite (or a clear soda)

lay out the crescent rolls - 4 crescent rolls in each square, and push them all together
place wheel of brie in the middle of one of the 4 squares of combined crescent rolls
drizzle brie with 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey [not an exact amount - just a drizzle] and 1/2 cup of pecans
and fold the crescent roll up around the brie - and then place the other square of crescent rolls on top sealing in any exposed brie
Bake the brie at 325 for 15 minutes and then remove from oven and add honey
and the rest of your pecans
and bake for 10 more minutes. Remove and transfer your brie onto another dish (you will have some honey that have baked on the bottom on the dish - as you can see from the picture above)

cut up your apples - and soak them in sprite (it helps prevent the apples from turning brown) and then surround the brie with your apples and serve.... the cheese will melt right out from your crust - and it is pure deliciousness! Enjoy!!!

This sounds delicious! Also, thanks for the tip about the apples and Sprite. I've used pineapple juice and lemon juice before, but that sometimes leaves the apples with a taste.

oooh yum! I always see these fun cheeses at the grocery store but never buy them because I don't know what to do with them. This looks really yummy!
