Cassandra's Year Of Birthday Cakes

Cassandra's Year Of Birthday Cakes

In 2017 I made a little deal with myself, I wanted to make all of my family’s birthday cakes (thanks, Ina Garten and Barefoot Contessa for the inspiration). I enjoy baking with my kids and thought that letting them help with their own cakes would create some great memories and foster their love for cooking and baking. The birthday cakes weren’t perfect works of art, but they were prepared with love - so they tasted even better!

In The Kitchen - Lemon & Herb Chicken

It’s mid-week and my husband has worked late the past few days. It’s just one of those times when cooking a full meal seems daunting, and also one of those times that I’m thankful I have recipes, from great cooks like Ina Garten's How Easy is That, stored in my head! This Baked Lemon & Herb Chicken is my version of Ina’s Lemon Chicken Breasts. Delicious and SO EASY!

In The Kitchen - Almond Orange Cookies

If you visit our blog at all, you know we’re on a mission to find healthier options for our families. We also don’t want to sit around eating stuff that tastes like cardboard – as if our kids would go for that. We’re far from perfect…but everyone once-in-a-while we come across a recipe that, healthy or not, is REALLY super yummy (and thankfully free of refined sugar and gluten).

Fresh Juice and Homemade Applesauce

Over the summer I found myself using our All-Citrus Juicer over and over again. (I just couldn’t get enough of these fresh margaritas.) And the juicer is so fun to use and easy to clean that I found myself adding fresh juice to everything!

So…I decided to search out some seasonal recipes that included fresh citrus, and I came across this one for Ina’s Homemade Applesauce. It’s perfect for this time of year, when apples are the most delicious.  Enjoy!

Cassandra-

 

Ingredients:

Zest and juice of 2 large navel oranges

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

3 pounds Granny Smith apples (6 to 8 apples)

3 pounds sweet red apples, such as Macoun, McIntosh, or Winesap (6 to 8 apples)

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/4 pound unsalted butter

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the zest and juice of the oranges and lemon in a large bowl. Peel, quarter, and core the apples and toss them in the juice. Pour the apples and juice into a non-reactive Dutch oven or enameled iron pot. Add the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and allspice and cover the pot. Bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until all the apples are soft. Mix with a whisk until smooth. Serve warm or at room temperature.
