Slow Cooker Cinnamon Fried Apples

Good morning friends! 
We are one week away from summer vacation which means - no school!- and this Mama is exhausted already just thinking about it!
Luckily, we took a family trip to the grocery store to stock up on some essentials so I can meal prep and plan lunches for this week. I decided to pick up some beautiful, crunchy red apples too and add them to my slow cooker for an easy Cinnamon Fried Apples dessert. 
Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think!

Southern Fruit Iced Tea #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
Today is the last day of BrunchWeek and I have loved seeing all the delicious treats and eats that have been shared all week long! This is my fourth recipe and dare I say I left the best for last? If there is one thing I always serve during brunch it is Sweet Tea. Today I am sharing a jazzed up Sweet Tea recipe, this time with fruit juice mixed in called Southern Fruit Iced Tea . And what is a good Sweet Iced Tea without sugar, right? I used Dixie Crystals sugar to add the perfect sweetness to my brewed tea. Scroll down for the recipe and check out my drink inspiration in the pics below. 
When my darling cousin got married seven years ago, 
we had a brunch with just the girls at a local cafe called Dumplins. 
They served Fruit Tea there and that is where I first tried this amazing drink.
Now I am hooked and I had to create my own version at home!

Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

This brunch treat is a combo of two of my favorites: fluffy buttermilk pancakes and gooey pineapple upside down cake! Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes are sure to be a hit at your next brunch. No syrup needed, these cakes are delicious on their own! 

I was so excited to receive these LorAnn Bakery Emulsions to use for my BrunchWeek recipes!
 A baking emulsion is a flavor suspended in a base containing mostly water. In contrast, baking extracts are flavors suspended in a base containing mostly alcohol. LorAnn Bakery Emulsions are not compromised by the flavor of alcohol and don't "bake-out" when exposed to heat like an extract flavor.
For this recipe I use the Butter Vanilla flavor to add another layer of richness to these tasty pancakes.
