Crockpot Applesauce

I absolutely adore this time of year. Falling leaves, apples in everything, cozy nights. And baking. So. Much. Baking. I love making the house smell cozy, like fall. Earlier this week, I decided to finally try using my crockpot to make something. And that something happened to be homemade applesauce. Not only did this make my house smell absolutely delish, guys, it was sooo easy.


Oh, and it only has 2 ingredients. Apples and cinnamon.

May Foodie Pen Pals

Happy Friday, y’all! I’ve had a very busy and exciting past few days. Most noteworthy is that I’m moving into a new apartment that happened to be my first choice of all apartment options! I’m quite happy to be living with one of my best friends and enjoying the fabulous fireplace– I’ve never had one before– and two bathrooms. Such a luxury for two chicks!

This month, I received a package from Elena at The Sweetness of Joy. Elena is on a mission to document her journey to conquer her sweet tooth and enjoy the sweet things that life has to offer, and often blogs about health and fitness– something we could all use, am I riiiiiiight? I think Ms. Elena must have done some research on me, because she KILLED IT with the goodies she sent me!

January Foodie Pen Pals

I cannot believe the first month of 2013 is already over. It’s almost Valentine’s Day (read: I have to buy/make Valentine’s or cookies. Cookies it is!). I’m also two weeks away from visiting Em in Los Angeles! Guess what else? It’s Foodie Pen Pals reveal day!

Mellissa, over at A Fit and Spicy Life, was an absolute doll and sent me healthy treats for January’s Foodie Pen Pals. She hails from the Twin Cities and describes herself as a 30-something newlywed who loves food, working out, traveling, and (my personal fave) wine. Her package came at a perfect time, because around this time of year, everyone is all on healthy eating kicks. Let’s take a peak at what she sent me, shall we?
