Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

Salted-Caramel Apple Pie


When the colder weather hits and the holidays approach, I consistently have pie on the brain when it comes to desserts. A warm flaky crust and fall spices can only be improved upon by something like salted caramel. After all, my love likes caramel...and pie, so when I wanted to bake him something, caramel apple pie was the perfect choice.:)



I used this Williams Sonoma recipe as a start for the apple filling. It was the first time I pre-cooked apple slices before baking them in a pie, and I have to say it turned out absolutely perfect.




I also noticed the crust turned out better then usual. I used this basic pie crust recipe that I always use, but I think cooking the juices out of the apple first helped to make a more crispy crust.




I used a leaf cookie cutter and a small knife to create the look of real leaves on top. Brush them with the egg wash to help them stick to the top crust.

There is a salted-caramel recipe in the Williams Sonoma version, but if you need to make it dairy-free like I did, try this easy caramel sauce recipe. Enjoy!:)
