Apple Hi!! Umm, I mean Pie...
Me who said I was leaving but am now showing up two months later because making food and taking pictures is like a drug I need in my life.
Hi, My Name is Jennifer and I like to cry wolf...and eat...tons..and document it..
Do you guys think we can just pretend like I took a long vacation? You can? Well that's great!
So let me get you guys up to speed.
1. I am now 4 months pregnant with what we believe to be a little man! Yeah.
2. I did the calculations and I can now consume about 2,300 calories guilt free since I am eating for "two".
3. I consume about 3,000 calories a day. I guess that is more of a confession.
4. Indigo wakes me up before 6am every morning.
5. Hey, if a girl is up from 6am until bedtime what can you expect but eating 3,000 calories a day.
I rest my case.
So there you have it, I eat alot and I missed you!
YOU = Fellow bloggers and blogging and having a free place for my lists and confessions and sugar and chocolate and recipes and pictures and run on sentencing in general.
You like apple pie? Well sure nuff I bought apples to curb the calories and didn't eat them. Shocker, so into the pie they went. Logically if you buy something to eat healthy you should add at least 1 stick of butter.
Delightfully borrowed from Allrecipes
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
6-8 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
*1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice and or cinnamon*
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer for 20 seconds.
Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly in the center. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and cover with foil very loosely, sprinkle with turbinado sugar if you like. Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft. My pie went for 40.
So posting might be a little less frequent but I do need a little outlet that doesn't include me yelling at my 3 year old...and husband....and cat...and television screen..
You get the point.
