Crock Pot Apple Sauce

My grandmother made the best apple sauce of all time.  My favorite was a version that she made with Red Hot candies.  Until I can find a recipe that replicates that delicious pink applesauce, I will be making this apple sauce.  Using Danielle Walker’s recipe, I used farmer’s market apples and cooked the apples in the crock pot all day on a Sunday.  It did take some time to peel, core, and slice the apples-but after that I just threw in the apples and a bit of water and let them cook for six hours.

In the evening, I mixed in the simple whole, ingredients {honey, vanilla, and cinnamon} and single-handedly ate the entire batch over the course of a week!  I am headed to the market again this Sunday to buy more farm, fresh apples.  Delicious!

Thai-Style Pork Stew

I am back and ready to answer that age-old question.  “What’s for dinner?”  During the busy weekdays the slow cooker is a family’s best friend.  It is equally as great on the weekends.  Fix it in the morning and enjoy your time together.

Give this Thai-Style Pork Stew a try this weekend or put it on your menu for next week. It uses nothing but simple ingredients-including creamy peanut butter!   Don’t forget the green onion, chopped peanuts, and limes to put on top.  They make this dish fantastic.

Have a great weekend!!
