This Apple Cinnamon Streusel Bread is delicious and will make your house smell like a dream!
I can’t believe I’ve gone this long without telling you guys about JZ. I mean. He’s a huge part of our lives.
So it all started when I read this amazingly hilarious blog post by The Bloggess about Beyonce. Now see. I feel pretty torn. I want you to go read that post so you know what I’m talking about. But I desperately don’t want you to go read that post, because you’ll never come back. You’ll get sucked into a black hole of Bloggess awesomeness.
Okay. So a giant metal roster that shows up on your door step unannounced and is named Beyonce. We’re on the same page, right?
Well, after reading that, when I came across this gnome shaped candle on clearance, obviously I needed to buy it. I mean, right? And the bonus was that when Nathan gave me crap about buying a red gnome shaped candle that we named JZ at the haste of The Domestic Rebel, all I had to say was,
“At least its not a $100 metal rooster.”
And so now the four of us spend our free time JZing each other. The rules of JZ are pretty simple.
You scare the crap out of a dearly beloved family member with a creepy gnome shaped candle. And then they in turn get to scare the crap out of someone else. JZ has popped up in pillow cases just as I am falling asleep, the car, the refrigerator, and even behind Piper’s baby quilt on the rocking chair in her room so I got creeped as I was sitting down to nurse her. The other day Gavin opened his back pack at school to get out his books only to see JZ staring him in the face. That one was me. I’m so unbelievably proud.
I kind of love that I’m raising a bunch of weirdos.
Some weirdos who have great taste in bread! They love a good quick bread, and this one is no exception! This bread is easy to throw together (provided you have the patience to peel and slice apples), and is so moist and delicious! Plus, while it’s cooking it makes your house smell absolutely amazing!
