With the heat of summer behind us, it’s easy to embrace crisp evenings, warm beverages, and leisurely outdoor adventures. Fall fragrances and flavors envelope us, and I find our local farmers markets and U-pick produce destinations to be a great source of inspiration.
“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” A favorite apple destination is the community of Oak Glen “where apples grow a mile high! “Oak Glen is a small agricultural community located in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains.” There are a several apple picking locations within Oak Glen, as well as fall festivals celebrating local agriculture.
A popular family treat in our household is homemade applesauce. It’s simple to make, and the cooking aromas make your house smell divine! This applesauce is delicious while accompanying both sweet and savory foods such as pancakes or pork chops.
Rachael’s Applesauce Recipe:
Yield: 4 servings
6 medium-sized apples peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
¼ Cup water or apple juice
1 TBSP Lemon Juice
1 Tsp Cinnamon (or more to taste)
1 TBSP Brown sugar
In a large enough pot, combine ingredients and cook on medium heat while stirring occasionally for around 25 minutes (Or until apples are soft).
Remove from heat and serve it as-is (Chunky) or use an emersion blender to create a smoother texture.
Enjoy the applesauce warm from the stovetop, or chill in the refrigerator for another day!
A few “spooky” activities you won’t want to miss!
Griffith Park’s Haunted Hayride
Fun for adults and older children. Be sure to reserve your tickets early!
Boo at the Zoo
“The Halloween spirit will be in full swing for two frightfully fun weekends at the L.A. Zoo, with trick-or-treating stations featuring premium Mars candies, plus animal pumpkin feedings, themed photo ops, story readings, and an extinct animal graveyard. Costumes are encouraged!”
Easy and eco conscience DIY ghost decorations
It’s always fun to entice trick or treaters with spooky yard ornamentation, and these simple ghosts are a great alternative to plastic/ store-bought decor.
What you need:
-Large white sock
-Pillow filler/ stuffing
-Black felt (for eyes)
-Pliers/ Wire cutter
– Fill sock with stuffing and tie-off
– Cut wire hanger and push through each side of the sock and bend to create “arms.”
– Cut black felt into ovals for eyes/mouth and glue to sock body
– Drape cheese cloth to create ghostly body shape
– Use additional wire to make hook for hanging
– LOVE WORDS –
We love our clients and they love us….
❝Buying a house is one of the most puzzling, difficult, and nuanced things someone can undergo whilst living in California. Nevertheless, there are some (a rare breed) that make this process friendly, AND fulfilling: they are called the L34 Group. My wife and I are/were first time homebuyers with a few ‘extra’ complications (selling a property, 1031 rollover, New Development purchase etc.). Francine Biton from L34 Group was a Godsend. Francine was infinitely patient with us, walking us through each step, and going well above-and-beyond the call of duty (regularly) to ensure all of the contributing parties were on course at every step of the way. My wife and I cannot recommend her partnership, professionalism, and thoroughness enough. Thank you, Francine, you really made all the difference!❞
