Happy belated Thanksgiving! Mine was spent baking my grandma’s always anticipated apple pies, and re-watching one of my favorite shows, Twin Peaks. It’s been five years since I first watched the show, and it’s such a different experience watching it now. Then, I was returning from living abroad, picking out my first apartment, and just getting to know the amazing man who would become my husband.
Apple pie recipe after the jump!
Which pie top is your favorite?
I’m super happy with the results of this week’s election in the US. There is a record number of women and minorities in Congress, a handful of states approved marriage equality to same-sex couples, and marijuana was decriminalized in both Washington and Colorado, something I really didn’t expect to see so soon! So I’m celebrating with pie.
Pitted cherries, sugar, lemon juice, and the guidance of this non-recipe produced some awesome jam this weekend. I wish I could virtually share the unbelievable smell that filled the house. These were sour cherries from the local Saturday farmer’s market which, I am pleased to announce, is back in full swing.
