Classic Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp is one of my favorite deserts to make in the fall. I’m not sure why it doesn’t occur to me to make it in the spring or summer…it just seems to taste best when the weather turns crisp and the mountain leaves are stunningly gorgeous. Which is how they look this very day, if you haven’t […]

Apple Spice Muffins with Maple Glaze

Just the other day, MyTeenSonMark came bounding up the stairs with a wonderful announcement. “This totally hot girl just sent me a text.” were his exact words, exactly. “Oh, yeah?” I said. “That is totally cool and like totally wicked, man. What did she have to say?” was my very suave response. The boy just […]
