Apple Butter Rollups

My girls and I love having play dates with our friend Leslie. She is a stay-at-home-grandma to her precious granddaughter and they are fun to get together with. Whenever Leslie invites us to her home, she has a table full of delicious food (she jokes that the food is the real reason we visit her, but that’s not true! It’s a bonus!) One afternoon she made us apple butter roll ups and I just had to get the recipe from her. I think you might want it too. Here’s what you will need:

  • tortillas (any size)
  • apple butter (in jams and jelly section of grocery store)
  • provolone cheese
  • sliced turkey breast
  • butter or olive oil spray

First, lay out your tortilla.


Spread a spoonful of apple butter around the center.

Lay a piece of cheese on it.

Top with a piece of turkey.

Roll up, lightly butter the tortilla and place on low-medium heated skillet. Carefully turn over to brown both sides.

Jamberry Nails Tutorial

Y’all know I love to paint my nails. So does my girl Eve, which is why she introduced me to a whole new way of doing my nails, and it’s called Jamberry. They are basically like a hard core vinyl sticker that you cut to fit each individual nail. They are cheaper than getting gel nails, and last just as long. Plus, they come in hundreds of different colors and patters. Maybe you’ve heard of it, maybe not, but I thought I would do a little tutorial to show you how it’s done. (By the way I am not being compensated to write this post. Just a faithful fan of the nails.)

1- push your cuticles back with an orange stick

2- fill a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and clean each nail

3- lay the sheet of Jams over your nail to find the right size. You want the Jam to be slightly narrower than your nail. (If your Jam is touching the sides of your finger, the oil from your skin will cause the sticker to lift and detach.)

find your size

4- peel the Jam off with a pair of tweezers, and hold in front of a hair dryer on low, high heat for 3-5 seconds each side

heat it up

5- press the Jam onto your nail, starting at the base and working your way to the top

press it on

6- cut the excess off and apply that part to your other hand

press it on

7- heat nail in front of hair dryer on low, high heat for 3-5 seconds

heat again

8- press Jam down again onto your nail to finish the seal and use orange stick if needed to apply pressure

9- use a coarse grit file to smooth out the edges of your nails

This file gets used a lot…


10- enjoy!
