Everything APPLE

Sunday we went for our second annual drive up to Oak Glen, about a 50 minute drive from Palm Desert. There are LOTS of apple farms where you can pick your own, or buy them in bags. There is a huge trip tip BBQ on weekends, cider pressing, pumpkins, bakeries with apple pies, and lots more. I was really hoping for fall leaves, but there was really only one spectacular tree! We must be too early, and it has been warmer than usual. Here are the highlights:

Of course you know what is coming! APPLE PIE!

This year, I tried the Willams-Sonoma recipe for Caramel Apple Pie.

Bring it on! That looks so delicious-can I have a scoop of vanilla ice cream on mine?

Barb Cabot:

I always love your little smilebox albums and that pie looks wonderful! Yum. what a nice fall getaway.

Susan:

Your pie was beautiful! Hope it tasted as good as it looked! I think you should give your foods a rating of some kind!

Barb Cabot:

I had to come back and take another look at that fabulous pie. I'm going to make it this Sunday for a family birthday party. I want a piece right now!

Come on over, Barb! The coffee is ready too!

I'm getting into the apple mood. It is harder to do savory apple dishes married to a vegetarian. I do love them in a salad with goat cheese and pecans. Your risotto looks great and it would work. I'm going to have to try it. Right now there is a cranberry apple crisp in the over.
