Love the notecards! I'm always baking, but usually don't bake bread in the summer, except for quick breads. So baking my first yeast bread of the season makes it feel like fall/winter is really here. Also, the first time I put on flannel sheets means there's no going back! For apple recipes, Norwegian Apple Cake is amazing!

Wow, the notecards are gorgeous (: And congratulations on your book! I'm so excited for the fall, especially since I live in Austin and the air is becoming breathe-ably sweet and cool now. Or at least, in the mornings! My favorite fall ritual is to enjoy the local farmer's market downtown with friends, with the ability to drink a hot hazelnut latte without the refuge of a/c (: And I do not have a favorite apple recipe BUT I am planning to try an warm apple, brie, & walnut crepe this weekend! I had a pear, brie, & walnut crepe a few weeks ago, with warm honey and cinnamon, and it was bliss. Hope you have a wonderful weekend (:


Hi Jen, my favorite apple recipe for sharing with friends after much laughter, comraderie and watching our cherubs running and joyfully celebrating the falling leaves and changing colours of cool crisp autumn afternoons is apple crumble...

preheat oven to 180 degrees

6 large apples peeled, cored and sliced thin

boil with

a splash of brandy
small amount of water
1/2 cup mixed peel
shake of cinnamon shake of nutmeg
rind of a grated lemon
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup brown sugar or sweeten to taste

then add add cup of berries (frozen or fresh)for a couple of minutes

...until slighly soft

Meanwhile rub together
1 cup salted butter
1 cup oats
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar or sweetened to your taste

PLace apple berry brandy mix in oven proof dish

sprinkle crumble topping over the top and place in oven for 30-40 mins. or until topping is slightly browned

serve with fresh whipped cream, home made vanilla ice-cream or warm custard - or to be really decadent, brandy custard.

Oh joy!


my favorite apple recipe is to simply dry them in a dehydrator for a tasty piece of fall all the way through several seasons. Also love our annual trip to Rocky Knob Cabins in Floyd VA. Hiking and drawing, noticing the season change at a slow pace with my honey.

What lovely notecards! I went apple picking last weekend and made apple butter, too. I'm planning on spreading it on a puff pastry tart before placing down the apples, and topping with streusel and crystallized ginger. I also love roasted apples, tarte tatin, and basically any and all apple desserts ;)


thank you all so, SO much for these beautiful ideas - getting ready to post the winners this evening! xo

Fall is so sweet to me. I live in Denver so fall here is always about leaves changing. That is why I love to live in Denver. Well after the winter start everything changes.

champion on getting closer and better the book! i can't delay to see it! my preferred slip practice is christmas. i know it's clichéd, but i really like all those thanksgiving-y foods: pumpkin pie, cramming, cranberry extract marinade, cres comes, ham and blueberry, etc. and it's the only time i ever eat those meals together! seriously, meals is the best aspect of slip for me
