Three Ingredient Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter

Three Ingredient Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter

This Apple Butter was one of the first recipes I posted on my site in 2008 (when I only had two kids!).  I perfected it for a few years and came back with the recipe you see here in 2011 (when I only had three and a half kids!).  I'm happy to say that I stand by the recipe in it's current form and we enjoy it so much every fall.  I keep saying I'm going to try it with no sugar at all (I mean, apples are naturally sweet, right?) but always chicken out because I love this recipe so much as it is.  My favorite thing to make with the finished apple butter is Apple Butter Swirled Pancakes.  I hope you'll give them a try!

[original text] I've been making Slow Cooker Crock Pot Apple Butter for a few years now, and I think I've finally found perfection. This recipe is so simple and delicious, no one will believe you when you tell them it only takes three ingredients! So let's give a warm welcome to cool Autumn - grab a biscuit, some hot cider, and join me for a jar of this fantastic apple butter.

Strawberry Meringue Cookies for Breast Cancer Awareness

Strawberry Meringue Cookie Recipe

I don't know a single adult who hasn't been personally touched by breast cancer.  Several of the women who I hold dear in my life have been afflicted, including my close personal friend and fellow food blogger, Elaine.  So when Rebecca asked food writers to take part in her Cooking for a Cure campaign, I didn't hesitate.  I put together this fun PINK (and yummy!) recipe and am also making a donation in honor of my friends and your friends who have or may some day deal with this awful disease.  

I would love if you joined me in making a few pink recipes and a small (or not small) donation.  If breast cancer isn't the cause that hits you in the feels, then choose one that does.  If you can't afford to make a donation right now, then pick up the phone and call a friend who could use an ear.  Let this post inspire you at least briefly to make a difference in someone's day. And if you have a story you'd like to share, please leave it in the comments so we can honor you and your loved ones too.

Beef Stroganoff Party Dip

Woah, woah, woah!  I'm combining things that you didn't know were combinable!  Also, probably making up words!  Now, I know you've heard of onion dip.  And you've probably heard of beef stroganoff.  But ladies and gentlemen, tonight we're taking it to the next party level with Beef Stroganoff Dip.  Yes, you're reading this right, and it probably sounds a little weird, but noooooo.  It's so delicious.  Sooooo delicious.

This dip is perfect to put out for a game day party full of hungry football fans.  Give them some sturdy chips (we prefer the wavy kind), and set them loose!  Beef stroganoff dip comes together in just a few minutes and is a fun filling and totes yummy dish.  You can serve it warm or cold (I vote warm) and make up on the spot or prep ahead.  You're gonna wonder why you never thought of this before.  I know I did!

Flourless Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Once upon a time, I discovered that it's really (really, really) easy to make peanut butter cookies. Like, three ingredients that I always have on hand easy.  So, I've been merrily making peanut butter cookies ever since and everyone lived happily ever after, the end.  Until this weekend when I noticed the bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips sitting on the counter near where I was making my peanut butter cookies.  I threw caution to the wind and tossed a handful into the batter.  

Needless to say, I don't make three ingredient peanut butter cookies anymore.  Now I make Four Ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Ohhhhhhh, yes.  These are going to be your new favorite cookies.  Watch out neighbors, we know what you're getting in this year's holiday cookie swap!  Well, that is if they ever make it out of the kitchen.  Which my kids are intent on making that mission impossible.

Two of my five kids were colicky.  The first and the last.  And I'm pretty sure the last is the last because ZOMG he was colicky.  When I say colicky, I don't mean I had fussy babies, or babies that didn't sleep well, I mean, my babies cried miserably for hours on end.  It usually started in the early afternoon  (we called it the witching hour) and went on until 8 or 9 at night.  Sometimes earlier.  Sometimes it started as soon as they woke up in the morning.  Always it was awful.

There's nothing to bring a new mother down like an infant that is perpetually unhappy.  To this day, I get a (very literally) squeeze in my chest when I hear a newborn cry for longer than a moment or two. 

Perhaps this is part of the reason I'm so insistent on offering food and help to new parents.  I try to stay away from unsolicited advice (although, let's be honest, I'm probably failing on that point), but make a very conscious effort to make the difficult transition a little smoother.  

These Flourless Oatmeal Cookie Bites are one of my favorite desserts to bring a new mama (usually along with a yummy one-pot chicken dinner). Oatmeal is shown to help with milk production in nursing moms, and even if they're not nursing, oatmeal cookies are delicious.  There was no magic colic cure when my babies were born, but they did have sensitive tummies, so I always (and still do, actually) had gas drops on hand.  I even brought them to the hospital with me knowing that they were safe for itty bitty babes.  Lucky for those of you still baking buns, though Little Remedies® has recently come out with Advanced Colic Relief Drops - (they're NEW and available at Target!) which I am now vowing to give all new moms along with their Welcome Baby Meal.
