A few weeks ago I was feeling ambitious so I set out to make a couple Pioneer Woman recipes. Now, if I’m honest, I’ll tell you that I don’t often attempt PW recipes because they often have so many steps and seem to take a while. Don’t get me wrong, they’re always fantastic, but I don’t usually want to spend over an hour cooking (or, over 15 minutes). But on this day I felt like doing some real cooking.
First, the kids helped me make her Homemade Applesauce. A corer would have helped speed up the process immensely but it still didn’t take too long and the kids enjoyed throwing the apples in the pot. And the result? Well, it’s basically apple pie filling that is called applesauce so I consider that a major win! Just for your notes though, I was only able to fill up 2 1/2 medium sized jelly jars (think Smuckers) from one recipe of 10 big apples so keep that into consideration.
After I made the applesauce, I decided to substitute the applesauce for the apples in her Pork Chops with Apples recipe. And let me just say that this recipe was divine. Her recipes might take a lot of work but the result is definitely worth it!
Any other must-make PW recipes that you’ve made? I’m in a cooking groove right now so I’d like to try them! Leave them in the comments please!
