I was motivated on Monday to spend some time in the kitchen. Here’s what motivated me.

  • cooler temperatures: this was a huge incentive. HUGE.
  • a tweet from @SarahMphoto on Sunday nite with a photo of her apple crisp that just came out of the oven. When I replied back “recipe”? she kindly tweeted me back the recipe.
  • the recipe was less than 140 characters…how could I NOT make it.
  • the fact that Bruno’s was open and I could pick up two varieties of apples for the recipe..Ginger Gold and Paula Red.

So here’s what the tweet like:

@momwhoruns: 4-6 apples, topping: 3/4 cup rolled oats, 3/4 brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 tsp cinnamon, bake 350 35-40 minutes.

Could it get any simpler? I mean really!!

I chopped up my apples and made my topping:

two steps..

I put the apples in a pie plate, put the topping on top and voila… .this was on my plate 40 minutes later. Sadly no ice cream was available but Im sure it would be even more amazing with ice cream!!  I should note that I added more rolled oats than the original recipe.


I continued to make tomato sauce and a brocoli crunch salad. Stay tuned later this week for more recipes K?

PS many thanks to Sara for motivating me to get into the kitchen and make this apple crisp!! I can’t wait to go to Chudleighs to pick more varieties of apples and to try this recipe again (and again..and again).

Happy Baking!!
