“I’ll eat some breakfast and then change the world.” On my quest to use up my stash of applesauce without my husband knowing that I’m feeding him applesauce everyday, I came upon this recipe for applesauce breakfast cake.  But the plot thickens.

BREAKFAST IS SERVED

“Don’t forget to set your scale back 10 pounds tonight.” I really enjoy the early hours of the morning.  I absolutely enjoy them more if I can slip quietly into the day with as little effort as possible.  That’s why I generally make coffee before I go to bed and store it in the fridge…
