Kielbasa (Brown Sugar Glazed)

I found my new go-to party recipe thanks to Pinterest.
It makes the perfect appetizer..and a delicious one at that.
I could have eaten the entire batch myself. 
Oh..and did I mention its easy to put together!?!
Throw it in the crockpot, get the rest of your party together, and you're ready to go!
  • 2 lbs. fully cooked kielbasa sausage, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 cup brown sugar 
  • 1 cup  applesauce
  •  2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard 
  • 1-1/2 tbsp minced garlic

  • Combine the kielbasa with brown sugar, applesauce, garlic, and mustard in a crockpot.
  • Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours until heated.

Crockpot Apple Crisp

I can't believe its been a month since my last post! I couldn't even remember my blog password.
 Oy vey. 
Lately, it seems like my days just turn into weeks which turn into months.
 It's crazy how time flies when things are busy!
I now have a month worth of recipes and pictures to share with you...which I'm hoping to get up soon! I am starting off my string of blog posts with the perfect fall recipe: apple crisp. I have been LOVING my crockpot lately. So I figured, why not? Lets try a dessert! I was a little worried that the topping of the apple crisp would turn out to be mushy from being cooked in the crockpot, but the texture was just fine! In fact, I liked the apple crisp a lot! It made the apartment smell FANTASTIC, and it got me in the mood for fall!! I just can't believe its almost October...eeks!
