So! In efforts to make myself more of an asset around the house, I have been COOKING. That's right ladies...the same person who just learned to cook eggs in the last twelve months is now trying new recipes and baking shit up in the kitchen! With some success, I must say.
So I decided I would feature EASY, RETARD-PROOF recipes every now and then, when I feel like it, because sometimes I won't and I will go buy a burrito instead. And I am truly a cooking retard, so if I can do it...anyone can! Weeeee!
Because I love animals, my recipes (while not entirely vegan) will try to harm as few critters as possible. I also make a great attempt to use local, organically-grown produce from the farmer's market, though I have been spotted buying carrots at Albertsons. Whatever. I'm trying, okay?
Also, I will never put nutritional info of any kind on any of my recipes. If it's good, it probably has some form of butter and sugar, and I'm a firm believer that one must eat everything in moderation!
So here is my first retard-proof recipe: HOMEMADE APPLESAUCE! If you haven't made this before, get ready to laugh because it's so easy it's silly.
Level of Difficulty: 1. The hardest part is peeling the apples!
Time: Like 30 minutes.
How many dishes you'll have to wash: like 1 saucepan, yo.
Yumminess: SUPER YUMMY!
8 apples--peeled, cored and chopped. I use organic Granny Smith apples from the farmer's market because I like that they are slightly more sour.
1 and 1/2 cups of water
2/4 cup of white sugar
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
In a saucepan, combine apples, water, sugar and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat for about 15 to 20 minutes, until apples are soft. Allow to cool then mash with a fork. Eat!
See how easy that was? I told you!
Here is a link to the recipe and all of the fab reviews if you don't believe me. Please note I doubled the original recipe because otherwise the amount of applesauce created was INSUFFICIENT and I ate it all in one sitting.
