Fall Baking and Apple DIsappointments

When fall finally arrives...I'll be ready!  House is decorated, autumn scented candles are lit every night and all that is left is to find some delicious things to bake!

Our local produce stand (the only one) recently closed down.  It was locally owned with mostly local produce. There was always a good price on apples and they were delicious.  Since its closing, I've refrained from buying any apples since it is hard to buy a good apple from the chain grocery stores. Finally since I wanted to try a recipe, bought a bag of apples.  The prices were so high, it was easier to buy a big bag rather than a few individual apples.  Well, they are awful!  No rich, sweet apple taste.  But, with a few added ingredients, they do make delicious homemade applesauce and muffins.  

Fall baking is something I love to do when the weather cools down.  The smells and taste of pumpkin are my favorite, but due to our overabundance of apples, fall baking will begin early..with apples!

Homemade applesauce with The Pioneer Woman's recipe will now be a staple at our home!  It is delicious and very easy to prepare. 

Glazed Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal bread is the next project.  Anything you can mix by hand is a winner in my book!  

There is nothing that brings warmth and love to the family like something home baked!

  1. We're starting to get into our fall/apple baking here too. I love it! Moving around often (with the military) it's often hard to find reliable produce; I feel your pain.
