This is a rare, two-ingredient side, and I can guarantee your family will love it. We eat cinnamon baked apple slices almost every Sunday with chicken, peas and salad to reset our system after Saturdays spent eating pizza, brownies and other unwholesome things.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say these apples help save that routine meal. Because, no one is tired of it yet, which is a miracle.
In fact, Keegan and Ellie like to sneak extra apples in the cart just so they can have more of this dish.
Cinnamon Baked Apple Slices
It really couldn’t be simpler. Here’s how it works:
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
- Peel four or five golden delicious apples.
- Cut off each side of the apple, leaving four pieces.

- Sprinkle with cinnamon. Toss to combine using your hands.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until tender.
- Serve immediately.

For years, I have hated cauliflower. In fact, I couldn’t stand the smell of it, but something happened. I discovered I do like it – coated in cheddar. This 4-ingredient side is a great example of how something healthy can be improved with just a touch of something decadent. Cauliflower is roasted at a high…
This recipe is a family favorite. Smoky and addictive, these thighs have Ellie eating chicken. CHICKEN. The protein she dreads just a little less than fish. (Keegan and I also love it.) No one goes hungry. And, this 15 minute main dish is fast and flavorful. Smoked paprika, garlic powder and onion powder are rubbed…
Last week, I shared a 15 minute meal plan builder perfect for hectic nights when you don’t even have time for takeout. Today, I’m talking about a favorite 15 minute main dish. To prepare it, tilapia is cooked in a non-stick skillet, alongside lime, butter and fresno chilis. Sautéed over a medium heat, the butter…
In my 20’s, meals could take hours to make, because there wasn’t a small person who lived with me that cared how quickly she was fed. But now, there is. She also comes with 1,000 activities, which means we need meals to happen quickly. So today, I’m spilling secrets on how I make dinner happen…
