Look, you guys
It’s here. My most favorite, beautiful, scenic time of year. I told the kids it was supposed to snow this week so we had to ask Alexa when the first technical day of winter is. Do you want to know what she said? December 21st. Yet we have snow in the forecast for today, November 6. You try explaining all of this to a 4 year old. Why oh why can’t crispy, cool autumn fulfill its assigned 3 full months?! Winter is so dang greedy and aggressive around here🙄
But we certainly won’t stop celebrating autumn in this house until that far away day in December…and this yummy Cinnamon Apple Pear Sauce will certainly be a constant in our fridge. I’m addicted. My kids could take down an entire batch in one sitting. I even got a “I want to eat this every day of my life!” from Jude. Winning.
It’s starting to officially feel like fall, guys! How have you been celebrating? Give me all the warm coffee, crunchy leaves, cool, refreshing air, pumpkins, corn mazes, scenic colors that will blow your mind…and APPLES! It’s all happening in our neck of the woods and if I could just pile on an extra couple months of this stuff I’d be one over-the-moon mama. Minnesota truly feels like the most magical place this time of year.

Being stuck in the middle of nowhere surrounded by the most incredible scenery with my four favorite humans just simply isn’t a terrible way to spend a Saturday. We got to show the baby all the ropes this year…and man the big kids are becoming pro pickers! Here are a few photos from the day Continue reading
So friends, as you may remember, I am a total fan of homemade applesauce. It’s unbeatable…store bought varieties just don’t compare. Not to mention when you make it homemade you’re not stripping away a ton of the nutrients through processing and preserving. I’m just sold on the whole deal, especially considering how simple it is to prepare at home.
Now, theres a couple of kinds of food love, in my book. Theres being a total fan, as I told you I was of the applesauce in the paragraph above. And then theres Hallelujah, over the moon, this-is-out-of-control, party-don’t-stop food love. This Cinnamon Pear Sauce? I would classify it under the latter. Continue reading
