Apple Cinnamon Bread

Apple Cinnamon Bread

Joel and I spent last weekend in Salt Lake City for a much needed getaway (aka our kids are exhausting). We were on the go the whole time but it was just nice to be together. Oh, and eat several meals in peace. Because we’ve totally reached that terrible toddler stage where it’s impossible and

Creamy Salted Caramel Dip {for apples}

Creamy Salted Caramel Apple Dip

I’m having one of those days when I just can’t focus or think of anything meaningful to share. Don’t you hate that? I have a four hour block to really focus and write each week and here I sit. Nothing. Do we overload our brains so much with the constant technology, constant noise, constant need

Although I do occasionally buy applesauce from the grocery store, I love being able to make it fresh for my little man. The draw

Apple Crisp

I recently got to get together with the MOPS (Mother’s of Preschoolers) group from my church and we made apple crisp. It took a lot of proding to get me to join MOPS.  I’m quite shy when you first meet me and it takes awhile for me to warm up and really be comfortable with people.

Apple Hand Pies

Joel loves apple pie. But I am no good at making them. The crust is always all wrong, it’s sticky and ends up tough. I can never crimp the edges and it always looks like a big, hot mess. When I asked Joel what dessert sounded good, he suggested apple pie since he never has it.
