A New Space

09.20.2010
by

The Rhythm of The Home blog has moved!

Our new space can be found here, and we will be automatically redirecting this site to the new space in about 10 days. To show our appreciation, and to make the transition a little bit smoother, we are holding a small giveaway over on the new blog. So come on over and enjoy!

Technical Issues Corrected

09.18.2010
by

Apparently the magazine  (www.rhythmofthehome.com) was having technical difficulties through our hosting company, but all has been corrected and we so appreciate all who emailed and posted about this. We were able to easily correct the situation, and the site is now back up and running.

We hope that you all enjoy these last few days of Summer, and have a great weekend!

Heather, Bernadette, and Julia.

New Blog Coming!

09.15.2010
by

We are very excited to announce that we are right in the middle of creating a brand new blog for Rhythm of The Home. It has been a joy to see this blog grow and develop with the contributions of so many of our readers, and we decided that it was time for a major upgrade.

We are working hard to create a blog that brings everything that we can think of to this space, and we are excited to show you all in just a few days. Our web address will be moving as well, but we will redirect this blog directly so no worries there.

For today though, here is a quick recipe from co-editor Heather Fontenot that shares her favorite recipe for Apple Butter (and don’t forget that Nicola shares her favorite apple recipes in the Autumn edition of the magazine)


Slow Cooker Apple Butter

8 Granny smith or other apples cored peeled and sliced
1 C. sweetened, dried cranberries
4 Tbls. Brown Sugar, Packed
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 C. water
Combine all ingredients in crock pot. Cook on LOW for 6hrs. Use a potato masher or a hand-blender to mix or mash until the sauce is the desired texture

Enjoy!
