Well here we are, the last day of 2013. For me, this year has gone by quickly, yet really slow at the same time. I can't say I'm too broken-hearted to start a new chapter in my life. This is the year that I turn 30 (I have a little less than a month to go,) and I'm quite determined to make it a great one! Hopefully this new year will be full of new adventures, and great cooking. So long 2013, welcome 2014! I wish all of you a wonderful new year!
For Christmas I made an apple pie to bring to one of our dinners. I got nothing but rave reviews, so I knew that it was a recipe that I needed to share with my readers.
What a comfort apple pie is. Slightly tart and sweet apples, smothered in a sweet spiced syrup, all stuffed in a homemade (after years of doing a store bought one, I finally faced my fear and conquered it) flaky crust. Serve it warm with some sweet vanilla ice cream, and it is simply the perfect end to a perfect meal.
