Saturday, my special helper and I decided to spend the afternoon in the kitchen, making an excellent meal. I LOVE spending time with this little sweetie ♥
We started off with my favorite fall cake...German Apple Cake!
It is moist and awesomely delicious:)
I know...It isn't "healthy"...But remember what I said about treats;)
It is perfectly acceptable to treat yourself, and your family a couple times per week!
Ready to bake.
Fresh out of the oven!
Can you see where some of the outside edge tore off...?
It was okay, I just placed the missing chunk right back where it came from;)
Even seasoned bakers have issues.
I should have oiled my pan better.
On to the main course!
I like to use all natural, extra lean ground beef, from grazing cattle.
Also, all natural beef broth (or organic), with NO MSG!
The smell of onions and garlic is wonderful.
After 3 hours of simmering.
If you want thicker chili, take the cover off the pot about halfway through.
I seriously can NOT eat chili without Jalapeño Corn Muffins.
(I am linking the recipe...but I add 1 chopped jalapeño, and an additional egg.)
I decided to do mini-muffins, which is my new food obsession;)
I baked mine for 9 minutes at 375 degrees, and they were PERFECT!
There you have it...
A yummy supper...
And a heavenly fall dessert:)
(Here is the Caramel Frosting recipe I like. I used organic heavy cream, and added some additional cream at the end to bring my frosting to the proper consistency. Play around with it until you are satisfied.)
And...Just to prove that treating your kids a few times per week won't ruin them forever...
Today the little munchkin asked for a "veggie plate" as her afternoon snack...
Have a super week!
