This blog is about my two biggest passions: being a mom and cooking. I am writing about becoming a good parent completely from scratch. The recipe sounds simple: lots of patience, even more love, a dash of creativity and some inspiration. Don't worry, I am also familiar with the ingredients that you can buy at a supermarket and I'll use them to cook and share lots of kid friendly recipes.
It's 7 o'clock on Friday night, weekend is here and how lucky that I happened to have some store-bought pie crust dough and a bunch of apples. Apple Pie was just in the cards this evening! The easiest thing to make if you have the crust ready. I just quickly sauteed some sliced apples in butter with brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg, then thought for a second and added a pinch of cardamom and a handful of dried cherries, piled the mixture up in a pie dish lined with the rolled out dough, covered with the second disk of dough and an hour later we have a perfect apple pie that will last for the weekend. Now I am ready for the coziness... :)
But that was just some bragging about the pie, what I really wanted to share is a discovery of a very smart baby clothing item. Have you heard of "ez sox" yet? The socks with loops? They are genius!
Allie got a few pairs from our beloved Aunt whom I mentioned in my previous entry. Not only they are super cure, bright and colorful but those loops make it so easy for Allie to put them on. All by herself like a big girl! Naturally, she loves the fact that she can put those socks on all by herself. They just seem like a must in any toddler's wardrobe.
