Food for thought

As we prepare for the install this weekend of a long awaited 5 month project filled with delays with custom furniture and products, we can't wait to show you some peeks when we're done. 

We have alot of furnishings to move in and the forecast says rain! 
Installation day for me means working with our kids Bethany and Michael, our installer, and is a fun and rewarding day. 
I am thankful for having my family involved in this creative business.

I posted this caramel baked apple the other day and was asked the recipe so I thought I'd leave you with this fabulous fall dessert to try.


All of the sweet and caramely goodness of a traditional apple crisp, stuffed and baked inside fresh Autumn apples with the best crumble topping. Top it off with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for an incredible fall treat everyone will go crazy for!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
  • 8 apples (I used fuji apples)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
crumble topping
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into cubes
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. First, prepare the crumble topping. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry knife, or two forks, or with your hands until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Peel and chop 4 of the apples. Add chopped apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a medium sauce pan and sauté over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat.
  4. Chop the tops off of the remaining 4 apples and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. Discard the flesh. You don't need to get every little bit out, just enough to make a "bowl" for the filling.
  5. Fill scooped-out apples with apple filling from the sauce pan. Top with a generous amount of crumble topping.
  6. Place stuffed apples on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until crumble topping is crispy. Serve warm and top with ice cream and caramel sauce if desired. Enjoy!

Happy Halloween and have a wonderful weekend!
