“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L.M. Montgomery

And just like that, it is October. Autumn is in the air and there is a cool, spicy breeze that lingers in our home. While I have put keeping up with this space and social media on the back burner, the scents of cinnamon, baked apples, vanilla and spice motivates me to share our adventures in life, our journey in healthy and, of course, the ever mounting recipes that fill my notebooks. And yes, I indeed have notebooks filled with recipes and yet have only managed to share a handful here on my blog. Sometimes, life gets crazy and let gets messy. My intention is always to post weekly, but as you can see that rarely happens. One day, I will have more time, but for now family comes first.

This recipe for Easy Cinnamon Baked Apples is simple, and quick to make. We almost always have these ingredients on hand and the leftovers make a delicous breakfast! I paired these apples with a Caramel Glaze and Ginger Honey Yogurt. To make the yogurt, simply take 2 cups of homemade yogurt and add honey to taste and 2 teaspoons ginger.
