Apple Cranberry Quick Bread

In today’s episode of Diary of a Sick Woman, I confess to you all that I ate, all by myself, (for all intents and purposes,) this entire loaf of bread in under 36 hours. Listen, I’m not proud of it.

5 Ingredient, 5 MINUTE Apple Tart

You guys.  This is one of the best desserts I have ever made, and you know I don’t say that lightly.  It was perfection.  The buttery flaky puff pastry.  The sweet brown sugar and cinnamon mixed with the tart granny smith apples.  It could not have been better balanced or more delicious.  And I slaved… Continue reading 5 Ingredient, 5 MINUTE Apple Tart
