Happy New Year, 36th Avenue friends!! 2014 is here! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a fun-filled New Year’s Eve…..I know I did! As sad as I am that Christmas is over, there is also something nice about starting fresh in the new year. And what better way to kick it off than by looking forward to what comes next –Valentine’s Day!
I know Valentine’s Day is usually all about chocolate….and I’m sure I’ll eat my fair share of it in the coming weeks! But with the holidays just behind us, the last thing I could think about was more chocolate! (At least until next week!!) Which is why this Strawberry Applesauce is so perfect!

Not only is it deliciously sweet and flavorful, but it’s also the perfect color for Valentine’s Day! And best of all….it couldn’t be easier to make. It would make a great gift for teachers, neighbors, or co-workers – all you need is a mason jar and some cute fabric or ribbon, and you’re all set! A lovely little Valentine’s Day gift for all the lovely people in your life. Such a fun day to look forward to!!
