For the most part of my un-foodie blogging. Aside from making a gazillion things for arts & craft fairs, is I never use a recipe anymore. As a Chef you do things so often it becomes a second nature. So when people like my friend @momitforward asks what the recipe is I have this big “oh shit, I should have written that down” moment.
Eventually I figured it out. I hope she knows that I had to dig through a trash can to figure out how many pounds and ounces where in the bags, but I did it because a friend in need of a recipe is a friend indeed. Imagine my surprise after I had tweeted it to her, she named me #momoftheday ! How awesome is that!?! So in thanks for being named #momoftheday I thought I would take the time from crafting and blog this very yummy recipe for everyone to share.
::Because I was in a rush and wasn’t paying attention I grabbed green apples. They were so tart I had to soak them overnight in white wine and simple syrup. If you get any other apple you don’t have to do this, BUT I might say it added a very nice tart flavor to the crisp::
