Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I always get so upset at the end of Summer that I forget how great Fall can be. Yes, the temperatures are definitely cooler, but there are still so many fun activities to be had! I went apple picking this past Saturday at The Milk Pail in Water Mill. With the apples picked… my Momma made a delicious apple pie, and I made some homemade apple sauce which I have been meaning to do for some time now. Here is the recipe I used:


4 med. apples
3/4 c. water
1/4 c. sugar (brown or white)
A few shakes of cinnamon
Peel, core, and cut the apples into quarters. Put cut-up apples, sugar, cinnamon, and water into a 2-quart saucepan. Cover and cook at medium heat (simmering) for 15-20 minutes. Let apples cool, then mash them with a fork. 4 servings.

An Apple A Day

Apple picking is one of my favorite fall activities. For the past few years, I have been going to The Milk Pail in Water Mill because it is so pretty out there and their apples taste great and make amazing cobblers.

I recently came across the perfect apple companion- the jacket! Designed by Jacqueline Dufresne, the knit cozies keep apples safe from bruising in lunch boxes, and on daily travels, $20.
