When there’s nothing else to do…BAKE

I woke up around 8 and decided to bake to get my morning started.

I had two honey crisp apples that needed to be used so I decided to make my Dad’s apple crisp!

You need:
Apples (2)
Flour (2tbsp)
Cinnamon (1tsp)
Sugar (2tbsp)
Brown Sugar (1/4c)
Oats (1/2c)
Butter (2tbsp)

My Dad’s recipe calls for 7 apples so I had to scale all the measurements down.

First you take the apples and you skin them. Then you core them and cut into half moon shapes. I decided to go medium with the thickness.

Put all the apples in a mixing bowl with cinnamon, sugar and flour. Mix it all till all the apples are coated.

Instead of using another mixing bowl I decided to put the apples in the pan and use the same bowl…

After the apples are evenly spread out I turned on the oven to preheat at 325*

I took the mixing bowl and added all the ingredients for the toppings. Put the oats, some more cinnamon, brown sugar and butter. I added everything in and made sure to cut up the butter into little squares so i could make the mixture all crumbly.

seeee all the crumbles?!

Once the topping is all done add it on top of the apples.

Usually my dad’s is completely covered with all that crumbly goodness but I decided to go lighter.

Put some aluminum foil on top and stick in the oven for 30 minutos…

30 minutes later…


Yum! All that was missing was some vanilla bean ice cream but since it was about 8:30 I decided against it!

Ask me what I did during the 30 minutes of waiting for this apple-y goodness?!

I decided to open up my Jillian Michaels Yoga Meltdown Dvd

My thoughts…holy crap i’m so out of shape…other than that it was challenging, a good stretch and a good burn, what more could you ask for from good ol’ Jillian.

I did some more job searching took a peak at some jobs over in the UK and I came across some gossip news piece about this realty show (The Only Way is Essex) that’s like The Hills. So of course I googled and saw the episodes on You Tube..to be honest it’s just like any guilty pleasure realty show but BONUS they’ve got accents. I must say the first episode my head was spinning because of the accents and the speed of their chats. Check it out if you can!

Amazing Wedding Cakes is on (read: I want to be a cake maker), must go!
