If you are like me, you pin things off of Pinterest and then don’t always come back to them!
I have seen on and off many recipes that I like and have pinned, but never actually made!
This week the kiddos were not 100% well, so we did LOTS of cuddling on the couch and read so many books!  One book in particular kept making it to the top of the pile!

There are of course a ton of recipes on Pinterest, and this one caught my eye!
I have changed a few things, but it made me realize that I can make homemade applesauce.  I have honestly never made it before, and I was a bit nervous about it!

If you want more of a puree, then place in a food processor or blender and mix well!
