Whole Wheat Apple Muffins

We got almost 20 inches of snow over the weekend so on Monday and Tuesday, school was cancelled and I had my kindergartener home from school. We had some leftover granny smith apples from making applesauce over the weekend so I found this recipe for healthy-ish whole wheat apple muffins from Smitten Kitchen. They are really good!

Slow-Cooker Recipe: Curried Vegetable and Chickpea Stew

I am trying to use what I have before we go away for Christmas and what I had were several cans of chickpeas left over from summer pasta salad recipes. I wasn't sure if we'd like this recipe but I like to try different things so I made this stew from The Kitchn last night and we really liked it. The cauliflower breaks up so you don't feel like you're eating big chunks of cauliflower if you're not a big fan, like me. The recipe makes a lot of soup and I had some for lunch today and it was just as good, if not better.
