One thing that I am totally loving about this magazine of the month series is that there is such variety in the recipes. Fish tacos one day and homemade applesauce the next! It is great… a major plus to having food magazine subscriptions.
When I saw this recipe for homemade applesauce in my trusty blue binder I knew I wanted to make it this week because it would be nice and comforting. It reminded me of my childhood. It also reminded me of that movie Baby Boom, the one were Diane Keaton is some big wig working woman in New York who gets pulled away from her hectic lifestyle when her cousin passes away and asks Diane’s character to care for her baby in her will. Diane moves out to the country to raise her cousin’s baby and decides to make homemade gourmet baby food, which starts with her making applesauce! Ha! When I first saw this moving in 5th or 6th grade it got the wheels in my head turning (I have always had the entrepreneur spirit) and I thought, wow! making baby food or applesauce is that easy!?! So I couldn’t shake that thought of making my own and so I did, all by myself at age 11 or 12! As far as the whole gourmet baby food idea? Well I realized at that tender age that Gerber had a monopoly over that industry and decided to pursue other dreams (still related to food)! LOL!
