Slow Cooker Applesauce ~ easy homemade 4 ingredient applesauce. Make it just as you like – chunky or smooth. Using a variety of sweet and tart apples, this recipe is the best!

Whether you call it a slow cooker or a crockpot, this is the easiest way to make the BEST homemade applesauce. 

Not that we’ve transitioned from bathing suits to sweaters and cute boots next up is trips to the cider mill for warm donuts and crisp cool apple cider and fresh apples.

Apples are a good snack by themselves with a dip or even in sangria but this set-it-and-forget-it applesauce may be my favorite way to eat them.

Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes ~ creamy, buttery bursting with smoked Gouda cheese flavor. The ultimate side dish for the holiday but easy to make on a weeknight.

For a foodie, it doesn’t get much better than the Wine and Food Festival in Epcot at Walt Disney World but if you think it’s nothing but ‘park food’, think again.

Disney rolled out a foodie’s red carpet as only Disney can do. Inspiration was everywhere. We paced ourselves sampling so many delicious dishes but still weren’t able to taste everything we wanted to. I guess that’s the best reason to go back.

My favorite dish was Smoked Gouda Mashed Potatoes that served as a base for fork-tender, Beer Braised Beef served in Epcot’s ‘Belgium’. When I got home I couldn’t wait to make both.
