Apple Crisp

Autumn is here! I can already smell the bonfires sizzling at nighttime, hear the crunch of the fallen leaves being walked upon, see the trees changing into the most beautiful colors, feel the weather cooling down, and taste the crisp apples bite by bite.

Taken during my daily walk!

Every morning while eating breakfast I read the latest posts on the blogs that I follow. My one friend, Alexis, is just one of the few many that I follow. She and I met freshman year at OSU in the dorms. She was a dietetics major. With our passions to create and eat nutritious foods I knew it was a friendship to last a long time! The other day, she posted the most wonderful recipe and I couldn't wait to get my hands dirty in the kitchen and try it out! I put a few of my own touches on this recipe and it turned out superb. Actually superb cannot even describe this magnificent masterpiece. Words in general can't explain this deliciousness.

Question of the Day

What's your favorite pie?

Every Thanksgiving I always have a small sliver of all the pies! Pumpkin, apple, and pecan. It's impossible to choose which one is my favorite, but if I had to decide, I can never get tired of good ol' apple pie.

Pie love!
