Apple Cake (Grain and Gluten Free!)

It’s finally my favorite time of the year!!  Well, almost.  The weather is cooling down (a little) and fall fruits and veggies are ripening.  To celebrate fall coming, I went apple picking last weekend!  I had only been apple picking once before, in college, and when I went before, I came home with probably 20 pounds of apples.  I was making apple bread, apple crisp, and just eating them straight for a couple weeks.

(To save you all from boredom, I’m splitting this story up into multiple posts.) Continue reading “Restrictive Eating”

CSA

I got my first CSA share this week! I am super excited about having this all summer and fall!! This week, in my share, I got: 1 head of butter lettuce, 1 head of bok choi, 1 head of tatsoi, a bunch of kale, a bunch of rainbow Swiss chard, scallions, oregano, and garlic scapes. Holy smokes. Guys. It’s so much food, and it’s so delicious! Continue reading “CSA”
