Apple Harvest – The List

(Photo credit: net_efekt)

Apples are one of my most favourite treats of the harvest season (they are right up there with new potatoes).  Year after year, I want to make all kinds of yummy apple dishes, but end up with the same old pork roast with apples, apple crisp, and apple sauce.  This year, I am making a list of awesome recipes so that I don’t forget what I want to make, and where I can get the recipes to make it!

I think I will stick this to the front page so I can easily update it.  Look for new posts below this one 🙂

Here is the list thus far:


Slow cooker stuffed roasted apples

Slow cooker apple cider

Slow cooker apple butter


Apple spice muffins (GF)

Apple fritters

Apple fritter cake


Apple bacon pancakes

Have any awesome harvest apple recipes to share?  Feel free to comment below.  Happy appling!

The Gratitude Project 2013: Days 4, 5, and 6

Holy cow do the days ever blur together in the summer!  Here we go:

Day 4: I was grateful for cooler weather.  This is a below average summer temperature-wise for Calgary, and I am SO very happy for it.  Even the days that only get up to 23 are on the hot side for my poor pregnant self.

Day 5: I was grateful for my local Co-op.  I’m having issues with my usual grocery store and it is good to know that I have a source of healthy, local food just down the street.

Day 6: Today I am grateful for quick doctor appointments.  It’s nice to be able to just check in a bit, have a chat and then go home.  Leaves me enough energy to do more than nap and veg the rest of the day.
