Homemaking Happenings...

Bri and I have been busy w/some Kitchen Kapers over the last few weeks...
Thought I'd share some the things we've been cookin' up...


We buy our eggs from the Amish...sometimes, you get one with a little feather on it. :)

Bri made these Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

It's applesauce time around here! Yum!

After they are cooked, sugared, and cinnamon has been added...
I use my wonderful Vitamix to blend it smooth.

This is what it looks like in the Vitamix.

All done!

I made this Apple Crisp at the same time.

Facts about Apples:

  • Apples come in all shades of reds, greens, and yellows.

  • Two pounds of apples make one 9-inch pie.

  • 2,500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States.

  • Apples are grown in all 50 states.

  • Apples are fat, sodium, and cholesterol free.

  • A medium apple is about 80 calories.

  • Apples are a great source of the fiber pectin. One apple has five grams of fiber.

  • The pilgrims planted the first United States apple trees in the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

I made this bread when I made the oven fried chicken below

The potatoes that we mashed were from our garden! :)
As an aside...I just saw this picture of an adorable kitchen online...thought it was cute and am ending with that...

I love that red!

Happy Homemaking!
