Baked Apple Chips

So, remember that time that I wrote a food blog?  About 6 months ago, it stopped being a priority. I was pregnant and in my third trimester, and the precious hours of naptime were used for napping myself.  Then, in the middle of July, our family grew by one.  Baby James has a sweet, easy going personality, an impressive capacity for handling his big brother's antics, and a giant, round head.  Our lives went from busy to chaotic, but now I feel like I have mastered the art of one handed cooking, eating, and toddler wrangling.  At least, sometimes.

I've thought about how I'd like this blog to evolve with our changing lives.  I will share the food that our family enjoys these days.  Maybe the occasional menu plan for the week. This means the recipes are fast, easy, and (mostly) kid-friendly.  On that note, I'll now share a recipe that takes upwards of 3 hours to prepare, but it's all hands off.

These apple chips are delicious, and make your house smell wonderful.  It's a great way to use up the results of an overzealous apple picking adventure.
