Homemade Apple Butter {reduced sugar & perfectly sweet!}

Mmmm, fall is here!!

There are so many reasons I love fall– the crisp & fresh air, the utter beauty in changing leaves, comfy flannel all the time, pumpkin everything, hearty soups, and AMPLE AMOUNTS OF APPLES!! 😀

I grew up with an apple tree in my yard, and we used up those apples in any way we could think of. Our favorites were apple sauce, apple juice, apple pie, apple crisp, and apple leather. I suppose that’s where my deep love of apples began.

They’ve always had good flavor, but I couldn’t get the texture quite right.
Turns out, I was probably just being impatient before because cooking them longer seemed to be one of the main reasons they weren’t mushy this time.

Pea Pesto Pasta

Do you ever conjure up brilliant ideas while lying in bed, trying to fall asleep?
Or at least, ideas that seem brilliant at the time.

For a while, I even kept a notepad next to my bed so that I could write down those ideas.

Today’s recipe is one of those late-night ideas. You tell me whether it’s brilliant or not. 😉

Copycat Qdoba Burrito Bowl

Happy Monday, friends!

Did you know that February is National Chocolate Lovers Month? Yeah. I’m just finding this out today, and I’m usually disappointed when I find out about food holidays towards the end of the celebration period. However, I’m pretty much always “celebrating” chocolate, so I’m not too disgruntled about the 24 days of National Chocolate Lovers Month that have already passed.

Now, you may be wondering why I’m going on about chocolate when today’s post clearly does not contain a chocolate recipe. Well, I’m quite certain that there’s no shortage of chocolate recipes out there, and I thought a healthy recipe would be a nice way to offset all that Valentine’s chocolate and other celebratory chocolate treats.

So put aside the chocolate for a while, and feast your eyes on this Copycat Qdoba Burrito Bowl.
