Wow. I can’t believe how August is flying by. I haven’t meant to be MIA around here, but my family somehow contracted a stomach bug smack dab in the middle of 102 degree days! I am slowly recovering, but it’s not much fun to be sick in the middle of summer.
So last week one of my friends and I got together and made some delicious homemade apple pie. We even made the crust. I googled (I Heart Google) apple pie recipes and chose one from SimplyRecipes.com. We had a blast. We ended up quadrupling the recipe so we could each take two pies home. I’m thinking next time we might need to double THAT.
Summer is wrapping up soon, and I am getting excited about fall. I love the hustle and bustle of it all. School, soccer, pumpkin patches, hayrides, Halloween…I love gorgeous fall days with the crisp air and a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks in my hands! 🙂 Makes me smile just thinking about it! Not that I don’t love summer, but fall just might be my absolute favorite.

Check out the full recipe here and make some yourself! By the way, we only altered the recipe a tiny bit. We didn’t have any brandy on hand (though we joked maybe we should have!) So we didn’t add any into the crust. Other than that, the recipe worked out really well!
I promise I’ll be back soon 😉
