Heading to Texas, back at the end of the week!

Before I leave though, I am sharing a recipe that my sister and I will be trying out, Upside-Down Cinnamon-Apple Coffee Cake. It's quick, it sounds delicious and that is about all I care about these days!

Thanks to everyone who has voted so far in the baby name poll in the sidebar. The results so far were not at all what I expected! It is fun to see what you guys like best. Before I leave for Texas I have a doctors appointment, so I'll finally find out what I have gained in the last month. I am going to be 30 weeks along this week, which is 7 1/2 months. According to the scale at my last doctor, I hadn't gained anything, but I have a feeling that will change. Let me just say that holy hell, I have a big belly and my pre-preg jeans no longer fit. Oh and I can no longer sit up or turn over in bed with out my husband helping me. Oh and please, don't ask how many times I have to get up a night to pee. Arg. See you in a few days!

Upside-Down Cinnamon-Apple Coffee Cake

1 1/2 cups chopped peeled apples
1 (12.4-oz.) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls with Icing
1/2 cup pecan halves or pieces
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup

1 . Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1 cup of the apples in sprayed pan.
2 . Separate dough into 8 rolls. Cut each roll into quarters; place in large bowl. Add remaining 1/2 cup apples and pecans.
3 . In small bowl, combine margarine, brown sugar and corn syrup; mix well. Add brown sugar mixture to dough mixture; toss gently to combine. Spoon mixture over apples in pan.
4 . Bake at 350°F. for 28 to 38 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Invert onto serving platter.
5 . Remove lid from icing. Microwave icing on HIGH for 10 to 15 seconds or until of drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm coffee cake. Serve warm.

Have fun in Texas!
(I live here...)

I voted in your name poll...but I have to say this: the girl I share my office with is pregnant, and she's having a little girl, "Lylah". I'd never heard of it until her...and then I was surprised to see it on your name poll...

Good luck picking a name!

Have fun in Texas - that is where we are... very hot. The recipe sounds great.. I vote for Lauren Olivia - but I am biased because I have my own Lauren.
