I had really been missing doughnuts for some reason or another and for good reason. I hadn’t had a doughnut in almost 2 years and then my mom goes and buy my kids and I gluten free powdered doughnuts back in June.
Well, no where in my little town do they sell gluten free doughnuts. So the next best thing was to buy doughnut pans and then experiment.
I saw a recipe for Apple Cider Doughnuts sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and thought why not lets try it!
When I know I will have a very busy morning I tend to pullout the crockpot and do an overnight Oatmeal so breakfast is ready as soon as everyone is up.
It tends to make my morning go by easier. This oatmeal is healthier than the microwaveable oatmeal packets and, well, tastes WAY better, too!
So if you are looking for something fairly easy to put together I suggest you try this wonderful oatmeal recipe.
Last night I was headed out to a Bridal Shower with my mother and daughter but before I left I made sure the boys and my father had dinner. My mom had bought boneless pork chops so I grab the package out of the fridge and started to make an apple chutney to top the chops with.
I hope they appreciated the work I put into dinner that night cause Lord knows they would had eaten cereal otherwise, LOL.
My kids love applesauce and eat it up as fast as I can make it. Two of my three kids devoured off what we had in the fridge and the third was quite put out.
I reminded him if he gave me 30 minutes I’d have some whipped up for him in no time.
Applesauce is probably one of the easiest foods to make at home. And usually it tastes way better than the commercial brands. But always remember you definitely want a great tasting apple to start with – the sweeter the apple, the sweeter your applesauce.
I leave the peels on since there isn’t any reason to peel the apples and lose the extra fiber goodness. I also use an apple corer/slicer so I am not in the kitchen cutting apples all day. I love kitchen gadgets when they help speed up prep-work and have many different ones in my cupboards!
I take the apple slices and place them in a pan and cover with water and boil for 30 minutes or until soft.
Next I place the apples and water into a blender on puree until smooth.
Makes 3 servings
- 6 medium apples, cored and sliced
- 2 cups water
Core and cut each apple into 8 slices each. In a medium sized saucepan add apples and water and bring to a boil. Boil for 30 minutes or until soft. Once apples are tender, place apples and water into a blender on puree and blend until smooth.
Once in a bowl you can sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or you can enjoy it as is!
