Apple Pie Applesauce Recipe



Happy Hump Day foodie friends! It's one of the best times of the year when it comes to food as far as I'm concerned. I love good, hearty home cooking. Things that cook all day in a crockpot, rich smells that permeate the home, a feeling of love cooked in. Ahhh, I'm seriously obsessed.

This week I undertook a challenge. As you saw last time, I'm always inspired by what other people are making. Pinterest is a great source of crockpot foods - oatmeals, soups, drinks, and of course...applesauce. So why can't I?

Recipe Review: Pesto Recipe (Dairy Free, Vegan)


Pesto was one of the first loves of my life. As a child, my parents and I would slather a Boboli crust and throw it in the oven, and we would devour slice after slice until it was gone. And then I grew up, and lactose intolerance happened. No more pesto bread. No more pesto pizza. No more pesto sauce anything. No more anything good. Ever.

The world was a dark place.

And it stayed that way for a few years. Then I woke up and said eff cheese- I want to EAT! Since that day, I have dairy freed, or veganized so many recipes. And it hasn't been that bad. You know what is bad? Children who don't have anything to eat. My little food problems need to stay in perspective.
