In the absence of actual apple pie– Apple Pie Muffins

You ever have days when you get a hankering for apple pie but you’re too lazy to go through the motions of making the dough, chopping up the apples, and all that? I do. A lot of times actually. So then you might ask, ‘Why don’t you just run down to the store and buy …

San Francisco and Apple Crumble Loaf Cakes

The other day I was checking my Instagram feed and I saw a friend of mine post a lovely autumn picture of orange trees lining a long road somewhere in New York. I immediately felt a bit sad, maybe just a tad jealous, mostly because I feel like I’m stuck here and she’s enjoying herself …

A slice of apple pie a day keeps insanity away

Things have been crazy around here. The effects of the flood have not, to put it mildly, been pretty. In fact, looking at the aftermath of it is depressing. We’ve packed a lot of old clothes and shoes for the relief drive, but on a personal level, the damage and loss we have sustained in …

What’s your favourite kind of comfort food? For a lot of people that is probably a tough question. I know I’ve got quite a few at the top of my mind, but one of them happens to be Apple Crisps or Apple Crumble. I just love the cinnamony scent and taste of the tender apples …

If you have an apple and I have an apple, how ’bout some pies?

I have very mixed feelings when it comes to apples. I really don’t like to eat them (well, not unless there’s a bit of peanut butter smudged over them). But apple juice is one of my favourite juices, and apple-flavoured candies and drinks, even candied apples, are always welcome to me. I also happen to …

There’s more than one way to enjoy Apple Pie

Cupcakes are just about one of the most beloved things on earth because of their cuteness. Set in their colourful paper liners and topped off with all different swirls and shades of frosting, people cannot help but be smitten by them. I enjoy making and decorating cupcakes very much, but if you ask me if …

Making scones for the first time

Not quite a biscuit but not quite bread, either. What is it? Oh right, a scone. I’m not particularly fond of things with too much butter because I don’t like how they feel in my mouth. But there’s just something about the buttery, savory and sometimes even nutty taste of scones that can make me forget. …
