It’s apple season! Bring out that rotating apple peeler/corer (if you don’t have one GET ONE) and start baking up a storm friends.
We always have a plethora of apples this time of year thanks to the 5 trees on my parents’ property. In fact, I still have sliced apples in the freezer from last year. Oops. Applesauce is always a must make for us. The mister likes to use it in place of yogurt for breakfast. Me? I like apples for the sinful baked goods. Apple galettes and pies here I come.

While I don’t do much (any) of the grilling myself, I LOVE a good BBQ meal. It’s just so fast, easy, and delicious! Yes, carcinogens are delicious.
