Boiled Cider (Apple Molasses)

Boiled Cider {Apple Molasses} from foodiewithfamily.com

I am a magician. You see that wine bottle? I fit two whole gallons of apple cider into it. Really. Okay, I boiled the cider down until it fit, and I didn’t have to work hard to do it. Yes, it took nearly six hours, but I didn’t stir it and wasn’t even in the…

My 13 year old son is like a little old British man trapped in an American teenager’s body when it comes to food. He cannot get enough of beans on toast for breakfast. My grandpa always loved baked bean and toast sandwiches and I share that love. I’m no food snob, but I can’t get…

Homemade Ovaltine Recipe | Malted Milk Powder

Homemade Ovaltine Malted Milk Powder in chocolate or plain from foodiewithfamily.com

One of my little sisters (she of Mapo Dofu fame) is pregnant for the first time. She has been obsessed -and when I say obsessed, I mean O.B.s.e.s.s.e.d. (get the pregnancy joke?)- with chocolate malts. Chocolate malted shakes, particularly, but chocolate malted anything pretty much. She texted me that she was making a chocolate malt…
