Here they are fresh out of the oven.  The boys didn’t even wait until they were cooled off to dig in. So yummy warm!

I also cut some into bars to freeze.  I put them into small bags to use in lunches.  This is all I was able to save from this batch.  I usually make 2 for my family.

Homemade Applesauce

Fall brings homegrown and farm fresh apples.

One of our favorite and EASY ways to use the apples is to make applesauce.

Step 1:

Put on a cute apron.  I got this one from my sister, Rachelle at Livin the Fit Life.  Handmade by my cousin Sarah.  Isn’t it too cute?

Step 2: 

Gather the apples

Step 3: 

Peel and Chop.  Place in a big pot and put in enough water to just cover.

  Boil on medium until desired softness.
