    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • The Best Slow Cooked Applesauce Recipe Courtesy Of Horizon Montesorri

    Be sure to check out this amazing recipe for slow cooked applesauce! Horizon Montesorri posted this story, and it seems like the perfect recipe for fall. Invite the grandkids over and enjoy making this yummy dish!

    We’ve been snacking on apples every day, but have plenty more to use for cooking. A good friend of mine (and fellow slow cooker devotee) mentioned that she loves to make slow cooker applesauce. She referred me to this recipe from the fantastic blog A Year of Slow Cooking.

    I thought the recipe sounded great, but the apples we picked were so sweet and flavorful that I didn’t think they needed to be enhanced with sugar, vanilla or cinnamon. Plus, this Applesauce Cake recipe caught my eye and it calls for unsweetened applesauce. I figured I’d make a batch of unsweetened applesauce and eat part of it and use the rest for the cake.

    This was definitely the easiest thing we’ve made in the slow cooker, so far.

    Slow Cooker Applesauce (adapted from A Year of Slow Cooking)

    Makes: 2 cups applesauce
    Prep: 10 minutes
    Slow Cook: 6 hours on LOW

    4 medium-sized apples and 6 small apples (we used 4 medium-sized Golden Delicious, 2 small Empires, 2 small Granny Smiths and 2 small Fujis)
    juice from one lemon
    1/4 cup water

    1. Peel, core and chop apples into 1-inch chunks. Place in slow cooker. Add water and lemon juice and mix to combine. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.

    2. Mash apples and stir well.
