Recently, someone wrote me and asked if I was alright since I had not blogged since June!! Well….that prompted me to pop in here and let you all know I am just fine….and thanks for asking (Dawn!!). Life has just gotten in the way….that’s all. A few bumps in the road of life….nothing to do with me but all is good now…for the time being. A couple weeks ago I picked up those wonderful Cortland apples above and made an awesome apple crumb pie!! Here are a couple photos……
…hopefully you can enlarge them because it is so gooey looking….with crunchy cinnamon chunks that got on the outside of the dish….Oh my was this good!! What made this even yummier were a couple of new ingredients I normally don’t use. I added a little maple syrup inside and a drizzle of honey outside (on top). That’s part of the reason it’s so gooey good looking! My favorite time of year has arrived….finally… “sigh”…it was a long and hot summer and I am sooooo over it!! Bring on the fall!!!
I’ve been working on a pillow for my daughter Carissa, that will go with the blanket I made for her for Christmas last year. Do you remember the blankets I made for my kids? Here’s a blast from the past picture…..That’s the two of them holding their blankets.This was the opening of them. See the Mary Jane candy on the table? My daughter LOVES that candy. It was in her stocking. So…here is the pillow I am working on to go with the blanket………….
I hope you are all enjoying your fall and survived the summer weather. Heck…some of you might even like that hot weather?? Not sure what that’s about but I won’t judge you!! Ha ha….just kidding! I will try and get by to visit you all. Meanwhile….my two new addictions are Pinterest.com and doing genealogy when I can!!
