One of my favorite YouTubers who has her own cooking show is Sara from the Domestic Geek.
She has some great recipes that I have tried over the years.
The other day I was looking at a video of hers from a few years ago where she baked gluten free desserts in a mason jar. Talk about portion control.
One of those recipes was a plum crumble. It looked so good.
It was then I found a coupon for free plums or $2.50 off the plums.
So I went and got some plums and made our dessert for our Sunday dinner.
My mom, mother-in-law, and myself loved the plum crumble.
Sara put pistachios in her crumble. I left those out. It was still good without them.
It would be delicious with ice cream or whipped cream.
– 6 to 8 plums, pitted and sliced
– 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
– ¼ c. honey
– ¼ tsp. Cinnamon
– ½ c. gluten free oats
– ⅓ c. almond flour
– ¼ c. brown sugar
– ¼ c. butter, at room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 6 – 4 oz. Mason Jars.
Toss the sliced plums with the cornstarch and cinnamon.
Add the honey. Stir until coated.
Divide the plums amongst the Mason jars.
In a medium bowl, combine the gluten free oats, almond flour, brown sugar, and room temperature until combined.
Top the Mason jars with the oat mixture. Place the Mason jars on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
Welcome to Day 25 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.
We are almost to the end of this series.
Since Halloween is next Monday, I’m going to play This or That – Halloween version.
I’m partial of chocolate candy. I have always said since I was born near Hershey Park, I must have chocolate in my blood.
Witches or Vampires?
Witches, hands down – Especially if they are good witches.
Trick or Treat?
Treat – Yum!
Halloween Party or Scary Movie?
I dislike scary movies, so Halloween party would be preferred.
Skeletons or Zombies?
Trick or Treat or Hand out candy?
When the boys were younger, I would go trick or treating. Now that they are older and go out on their own, I hand out glow sticks not candy.
Hay Ride or Corn Maze?
I seem to get so lost in corn mazes so I prefer hay rides.
Scary Costume or Funny Costume?
I like funny costumes.
Pumpkin Seeds or Pumpkin Pie?
I prefer pumpkin seeds. The Imaginative One loves pumpkin pie more than pumpkin seeds.
Bottle Feed a Baby Zombie or Walk Alone Through a Dark Forest?
I wouldn’t want to do either of those two choices. However, I would prefer to walk alone.
Bats or Black Cats?
Pumpkin Spice or Hot Chocolate?
I love pumpkin spice.
Celebrate in your neighborhood or at the mall?
We celebrate in my neighborhood.

Welcome to Day 24 of 31 Days of Slow Cooking.
Today we are going to continue with the photos from the Donut Trail.
After Kelly’s Donuts, we went to downtown Hamilton. We found the mural dedicated to
View from the side mirror
Here are other photos of downtown Hamilton. Some of the architecture is interesting so I quickly snapped photos as we drove by the buildings.
Next up was Martin’s Donuts in Trenton.
It was a cute pink building.
I don’t know why he was insistent that he stand in front of the sign.
Across the street from the donut shop
Trying the Banana Pudding donut
Our last stop was Milton’s Donuts in Middletown. It was the closest donut shop to our house.
The boys wanted Buckeyes instead of donuts, so we allowed them to get the Buckeyes.
We had a lot of fun doing the donut trail.
What a wonderful way to enjoy a beautiful fall Saturday.

The Imaginative One loves the color green. Once he was old enough to chose his own ice cream flavor, he would chose mint chocolate chip ice cream. For five or so years, he would only eat with mint chocolate chip ice cream. In recent years, his choice of ice cream flavors is more diverse.
