Crockpot Applesauce

My huge stash of apples is gone and I'm sad. I miss them. I miss using my awesome new apple peeler. Have I mentioned how I came about a large stash of apples? This is going to sound made up, but I promise it's true. My friend Monica can vouch for me because she is the one who gave me access to 500 apple trees that have barely been touched.

Chicken Jalapeño Dip

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry reading through the kitchen incident comments from this post. Oh my goodness! Burning stomachs, flaming oven mitts, sliced fingers, dropped turkeys and toes that were hacked to pieces with an axe! I had to read through them a couple times to pick a winner because they were all so good! (By "good" I mean "awful.")

Sausage Veggie Breakfast Skillet

My apple peeler arrived in Saturday's mail and I am enamored with this contraption. Why have I never owned one of these before? And who in the world came up with this brilliant invention? A few turns of a crank and an apple is peeled, sliced and CORED. What the heck. You can even do it one-handed! My left thumb is still out of commission. I've stopped looking at it.

Apple Pie Bread

This bread is going down in history for a handful of reasons:

1. The peeling of apples required for this recipe caused my sharp knife to take a very large chunk of flesh from my thumb, resulting in blood loss, tears, my four-year-old believing I was dying, a band-aid getting stuck to my open wound and a resulting trip to the ER.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese Skillet

My youngest cutie is very adamantly anti-vegetable. I love vegetables and I always have, so it drives me a little bit crazy. I can dangle the tastiest dessert in front of his sweets-loving eyes and he won't budge. Not an inch. Dan and I have never been ones to force our boys to eat. Our rule is that if they don't eat the good ("yucky") stuff, they don't get the bad ("yummy") stuff! So I am ALL about being sneaky when I can be. We go through spurts where we juice kale and spinach and apples together and the boys LOVE it.
