After a much needed break for the holidays, I’m back in action!
I’ve got a whole calendar full of wonderful posts to bring you this year, starting off with an amazing recipe from Kauffman’s Fruit Farm.
Over Christmas, I’ve been reading through Kauffman’s 100th anniversary book: Faith, Family & Fruit. It’s an amazing text detailing just how this small farm family has made a lasting impression (and business) run smoothly over the last 100 years.
This book was filled with amazing recipes handed down from Kauffman’s own family members. They looked so amazing that I had to try my hand at quite a few of them. Surprisingly, most were very easy to make!
Baby V also loved the book – but mainly because it had MANY pictures of tractors, trucks, and other things that go “vroom”.
I just love the detail and heart poured onto each page of this book. It has some gorgeous photography and incredible information. A highly suggested read for anyone who loves Amish country and farm fresh foods.
But even more than the history, I am in love with these recipes. One in particular has become a family favorite of ours- the “Apple Goodie”.
I’ve taken some liberties with the recipe and created a Maple Baked Apple Goodie that is a fun winter variation of this classic favorite. It’s simple, delicious and takes no time at all!

- Add maple syrup to apples and toss well.

- Bake at 375 for about 35-40 minutes. Garnish with maple syrup.

For a healthier twist, you can serve it with some french vanilla yogurt! That’s what I’ve been doing for breakfast and it’s been amazing.
