It’s always better homemade and it’s taken years for me to perfect my guacamole recipe and technique. I think I’ve finally found a blend the works best for my tastes and want to share it’s goodness with the (internet) ...

Homemade Applesauce, Another Race, and Another Mentor Lost… It’s been a busy week and starting off a busy weekend! I love to be busy…so there is much to say and not so much time to say it… First, I wanted to post my first experience in making homemade applesauce.
