Apple Turnovers

Peyton and I visited Riley’s Farm for a little fall outing of apple picking.  We got a bunch of apples and I needed the perfect exuse to use them all up.  I love apple season and love how yummy the house smells when I bake up something yummy.  I asked the bakers at Riley’s Farm what their secret was to their amazing apple pies.  They told me it was all in the crust and they were right!  It’s flaky and buttery perfection.  I decided to make apple turnovers for our sweet treat and bring back the flaky gorgeous crust of Riley’s Farm’s bakery.   I love turnovers because they are flaky and delicious and so easy. Even better, they aren’t frowned upon as a breakfast treat.  Winning!

Here is my super easy and quick recipe for our sweet, delicious Apple Turnover.

Riley’s farm

Nestled in the hills of Yucaipa are the sweetest apple orchards.  Riley’s Farm is our favorite and always our kick off to the fall season.  It’s colonial charm and beautiful setting keep us coming back.  Not to mention their mouthwatering apple pie! Peyton and I visited the farm while Capri was at school and had the best afternoon adventure.  Kacee from Life with Lipstick On

We picked up some treats to take home from their adorable shop.  We sipped fresh apple cider, read a little about the history of the farm and grabbed our favorite homemade jam. Kacee from Life with Lipstick On Kacee from Life with Lipstick On

We learned that Granny Smith apples were great for making pies with and can’t wait to try to make our own with the apples we picked.  Kacee from Life with Lipstick onKacee from Life with Lipstick On Kacee from Life with Lipstick on

Q. Are you into mixing patterns with stripes? If so, what is your favorite go to?

A. Stripes are so versatile and can come in different sizes, colors and styles so it’s a great pattern to mix and match. I love mixing stripes with just about anything but my favorite would have to be a classic black and white stripe with just a little pop of color.

Q. How are you planning on styling your stripes this fall season?

A. Fall is the perfect time of the year to play around with stripes! You can wear a simple striped scarf, sweater or top to add some dimension to your look. Just keep in mind your proportions and shape to appropriately use stripes to flatter your frame.

Q.What is the first thing you think of when you think of stripes?

A.  When I think of stripes, the first thing that comes to mind is that stripes can be such a flattering pattern, as long as you know how to wear them.sage+sparkle_stripes_2

Q. Are you into mixing patterns with stripes?  If so, what is your favorite go to?

A. Yes. I love mixing stripes with just about anything – from leopard, to plaid, to floral, anything goes – as long as you pay attention to proportion. You always want to make sure that when mixing patterns, one is a larger scale than the other. On the other hand, I do love a good black + white stripe paired with a solid pop color.sage+sparkle_stripes_4

Q. How are you planning on styling your stripes this fall season?

A.  This Fall Season, I’m excited about playing with sheer stripes and of course, layering! For fall, I tend to stay away from the typically navy + white stripes and try to incorporate more muted, deeper tones – and of course black + white stripes, which work for any season.
