It's a new month, and I have some happy news to share. A holiday gift project that I created appears in the current issue of Scrap n' Art e-zine. Scrap n' Art subscribers can view the article here (in the "Monthly Reader Submissions" article of the December 2012 issue).
Today I also get to share with you a layout that I had published in Scrap n' Art back in October. On the layout I shared my recipe for baked apples.
The journaling reads: "This is our family's favorite October dessert--I make it often." The recipe is simple: 6 apples + 2 Tbsp butter dots + 6 Tbsp maple syrup--bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit [180 degrees Celsius / gas mark 4 /moderate oven].
I know that my recipe for baked apples is a bit different from the way most people make it. I don't peel the apples (the peel is the best part!), and I slice the apples instead of just hollowing out the cores. Basically, my version is just like apple pie...but without the crust! It's particularly scrumptious when served with cinnamon doughnut holes, as pictured in the right-hand photo. If you're worried about the apples sticking to the bottom of the pan, you can add a little water before baking. Any leftover liquid from the bottom of the pan makes a delicious topping for vanilla ice cream!
I love this big apple tree sticker from the Basic Grey "PB&J" line, and I was happy to make it the showpiece of my layout.
I don't think I'll ever grow tired of banners. I love the kraft cast of these Jillibean banner pieces--perfect for fall.
Well, after looking at these photos I have gotten kind of hungry. So, I'm off to have a snack now. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I'll be back again soon with more good news to share.
