How to Make Slow Cooker Bourbon Apple Butter for Fall

Once a year my parents use to take my sisters and me to Pennsylvania to see my grandmother. In the back of her home, she grew apple trees and she would make apple chips and canned apple butter. In Florida, we didn’t really have apple butter, or at least it wasn’t really kept in our home pantry, so it was truly special to have. September is the start of the fall season so why not embrace it with this tantalizing Bourbon apple butter!

How to Make a Healthy Aussie Breakfast

Hello Everyone! Today I’m going to share a little about what I learned on healthy eating during my trip to Australia. I went to Canberra, then Sydney and even had a chance to scope out the local beach bodies on Bondi. Let me tell you, when it comes to healthy eating and living these guys have it down. The beaches start filling up at 5 in the morning with runners, people doing yoga, swimmers and even some high-intensity interval training. While there I was looking for a cookbook to bring home and the person helping me said that Vegetarian and Vegan cookbooks are their top sellers.

As any good social media contributor does, I made sure to take a picture of everything I ate. This breakfast I’m about to show you, however, was pretty easy to recreate and I felt good eating it. So as my first Foodie Friday post of the year, let’s get it started with a healthy breakfast!

Christmas Morning Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Christmas morning for me involved getting up, opening presents under the tree, and playing while my mother whipped up a sugar and cinnamon monkey bread. Sometimes she would even let me help by letting me roll the pieces of dough and then dunking them in butter and then cinnamon and sugar before arranging them and baking them.

Unfortunately, I live in a home where my oven isn’t exactly reliable. I’m not entirely sure what’s wrong with it, but the outside of my monkey bread will burn, while the inside is still raw. So while I would LOVE to give you that recipe, I was fortunate to find this delicious Christmas Morning Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Recipe. You’ll still get the smells of cinnamon, and sugar, and the frosting and not sacrifice any of the morning’s festivities to do it either!
