The apartment smelled amazing while these were baking.... 


  1. Yogurt and applesauce have now been added to the grocery list so I can make these. They look incredibly good.

  2. You should definitely use the crock pot more. It's amazing. Life changing. Well... close to it anyway. I thought my husband was silly for registering for it, but it has saved us a lot of time and effort. I love the fact that dinner is cooking, and the kitchen is clean, by 9 or 10am in the morning.

    This is where I get 90% of my crock pot recipes: She's wonderful.
