It’s been a slow week, crafting wise over here.  OK, I take that back.  It’s been a slow week, crafting wise, since Sunday afternoon when I sewed up a storm.  I’ve knitted a bit, but the rest of the time, I have been cooking.


We went apple picking last Friday and Saturday night, I made Ina’s Apple CrispEmily told me to do it and then someone else I know said that it was her favorite recipe, too.  So I did.  And it was good.  Really good.


So good that I ate it for breakfast the next morning.

And it was lunch too.  That good.

We still have tons of apples left so I am going to cook up a bunch of applesauce tomorrow.  I don’t follow a recipe for that – I just cook the apples with some water.   Easy peasy.  I don’t like adding sugar so I don’t.  It’ll go in the freezer right next to the jam.  I am also going to make this apple cake.  Doesn’t that look fabulous?

The latest Everyday Food has some really good recipes in it – if you don’t subscribe, you might want to buy this one.  It is the best I have seen in a long time.  There are lots of great recipes in there – the chicken tacos will be a staple around here, for sure.  Easy, inexpensive and liked by all four of us, even the picky eater.  We made the pot roast on Saturday and it was really good, too.  Both the tacos and the roast were done in the slow cooker – bonus!  There is a fabulous section on dark chocolate desserts that aren’t too taxing.  Leslie, I am thinking of you here.

Enough rambling.  I have a studio to clean out.  I have big sewing plans this weekend so I have extra incentive to get my little space organized and spiffed out again.  Wish me luck.
