Canning Apple Pie Filling

We went on a little weekend trip recently and the place we were staying at had nice big apple trees out back. Even though we have a few already at home, I couldn't help but pick a cooler full for our trip home. They are huge and gorgeous, so I decided I would can a bunch. After hymning and hawing over what I wanted to do, I started thinking about doing apple pie filling but my canning cookbook with over 400 recipes, only had 2 and they just had too many ingredients and I wanted something a bit more simple. Then I stumbled upon a recipe on Pintrest and it seemed perfect!
I have not canned many time before but I am working on canning more, so this was a good starting point.

Freezing Banana Muffins for Lunches

Making big bates of banana muffins and freezing them for lunches is something I did last year and after saving up all my banana, I decided to do it again.

Banana muffins and breads freeze so well and it being a bread, it thaws quite fast making it GREAT for lunches for kids and even the hubby. So it can be a pre-made lunch item thats easy and versatile.

My little baby is 5!

Today is one of those days I kind of wanna bury my head. I think I am just in denial but my last little baby turns 5 today. It was fine with the boys but it is different with the baby hitting these little milestones. She will also be starting kindergarten this year. Oh how times flies. She has grown such a huge personality, she lights up every room she walks in and definitely not shy at all. Lets see what another year brings!

Life Vest Inside - Kindness Boomerang

This was shared by an amazing person I follow Amanda Palmer. This is a crows funding fund -- for no funding, only kindness. A few years back a wonderful video started to go viral. I don't remember seeing it until around the last year or so but it too amazing not to share again mostly now that they are starting a kindness revolution with the #kindnessboomerang. They are simply asking people to spread some love and kindness and that is all.
