You might not think of applesauce as being one of those things you need to make. I mean, Mott’s has a pretty good handle on the market right? But I’m hear to tell you, as someone who has made 4 batches in 2 weeks, Mott’s ain’t got nothin’ on me. No kidding, I’m eating a small bowl of homemade applesauce right now, fresh out of the slow cooker, as a late night snack!
When my husband and I were in Seattle this past fall for our 11th-anniversary trip (yep, 1 year late on the intended 10th anniversary trip…) I fell in love with the most incredible chilly-weather drink at the Public Market: the London Fog Latté. I fell HARD. Like we were in Seattle for less than 48 hours and I had one both mornings, the second one minutes before we headed to the airport! I’ve recreated it several times back in NYC and I’m STILL enjoying it now in May
I just can’t let Cinco de Mayo pass without having one of these Cucumber + St. Germain Margaritas. I discovered St. Germain years ago and then came across THIS recipe from Freutcake. I’ve been playing with it ever since! I LOVE the simplicity and how a few ingredients make each other sing.
Many people have one. Lots don’t. But the ones that do tend to guard it. So if you don’t already have your own guacamole recipe then look no further. And hey, even if you do you I bet it doesn’t hold a candle to my Holy Guacamole! You won’t believe how 5 ingredients can come together to make something so bright and clean.
Although you can probably subsist on margaritas and guacamole – aw, college – I like to have a little something that constitutes a meal on Cinco de Mayo! And I really can’t get over how quickly and easily this Citrus Salsa comes together. It’s one of those ready-in-minutes toppers for whatever fish or chicken your heart desires.
