Almond Apple Crisp

Sweet spiced apples are baked under a crisp almond crust, in this delicious apple crisp.






In grade 3 my daughter ended up bringing home an assignment from school, which asked students to bring a recipe to school. As I set out my ingredients, she asked if she could help make the apple crisp, then write the recipe for school. I thought it was a fabulous idea. We quickly got to work and I took the opportunity to teach her about fractions, while measuring ingredients. As we sprinkled the apples with the topping, Queenie could not contain her excitement. She asked me several times how long it would take, to cook the crisp. Once it was out of the oven, we let it cool, while I took my photos. Since it was lunch time, we ended up having apple crisp with vanilla ice cream for lunch and it was magnificent. The almonds added a delicious nutty crunch to the topping.

6-8 Granny Smith apples
2 red delicious apples
1 Tbs cornstarch
3 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2/3 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
pinch of ground cloves
pinch of salt

Topping
3/4 C flour
1/2 C quick cooking oats
3/4 C light brown sugar
1/2 C sliced almonds
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 C cold butter, cut into cubes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Peel, core and chop the apples and place them in a large bowl. Add the cornstarch, lemon juice, vanilla, sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, cloves and salt. Stir well to combine. Place seasoned apples into a 2 qt baking dish.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon; stir well to combine. Using a pastry cutter, or two knives, cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the almonds and sprinkle evenly over the apples.

Bake for 50- 55 minutes; until the topping is nice and golden. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends.

With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
