I get antsy this time of year. And I’ll admit it, maybe even a little cranky. I don’t mean to. I have a hard time dealing with what I know is coming. Cold weather. I’m a fair weather type. I love summer…the warmth of the sun, no jacket, flip flops, even humidity. I know, weird. It’s just who I am. So during the months of September and October, if it’s warm and sunny, I want nothing but to be outside. I want to soak it all up. Before it’s gone. Not to mention, though I love summer time, I’m not sure there’s anything more …
I’ll admit it…I’m one of those northerners that complain about the cold and the snow of winter. But even I have to admit it can be quite beautiful and if I were to move somewhere warmer, as I do plan to do one day, I’ll look back on images like these and remember how lucky I was to have lived with all four seasons.
This is just a small collection of the images I’ve captured this fall with my new iPhone 6+. I can’t express how much I love the new improved camera on this bad boy. I’m in love. <3
The red tree you see above is right behind my house. It’s typically the last tree holding on for dear life to it’s beautiful red …
Did you know there’s such a thing as pie crust you don’t have to roll out?! Well, neither did I.
For me, fall always brings a craving for apple pie. I had apples on hand but no pie crust. What’s a girl to do? Well, I know, the answer should be simple: make your own crust. The problem with that is I can sometimes be a lazy baker and don’t have the desire to put a lot of effort into my creations. I just want something yummy that’s…simple and quick, so I can move on to other things.
So I did a little search for easy-to-make pie crust. Did I find a winner! You don’t have to roll this pie crust out, you just simply mix the ingredients in the pie dish and press it down with your hands. Now, the entire pie I made actually came from two separate recipes: one for the bottom crust and then an apple pie crumb recipe for the rest of the deliciousness.
Bottom Crust: The bottom pie crust can be found at http://m.allrecipes.com/recipe/18427/easy-pie-crust. It has great reviews and I totally agree. It was so simple and had a great texture and flavor. I used half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour. I like to try to get as much whole grain in my desserts as possible. It somehow makes me feel a little less guilty for eating it. Ha!
Crumble and pie filling: This was seriously so yummy. I used MacIntosh apples and again, whole wheat flour. The recipe can be found at http://www.kitchme.com/recipes/apple-crumble-pie.
This combination of two recipes was delectable. It was definitely one of the best apple pies I’ve ever made. We actually managed to eat the entire pie before I had to throw any out, which doesn’t always happen around here…surprisingly.
I hope you get to try this and if so, let me know below what you think! ‘Tis the season to be eatin’! 🙂
