Baking with AA

I love this time of year as the weather cools down, the holidays are coming, fresh apples have arrived (they don't grow in our southern climate) and I gear up for baking. Love the smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger along with sage, rosemary and thyme.
I took advantage of one of my favorite fruits, fresh cranberries and added them to a traditional apple crisp thanks to a recipe from Emeril.
Too bad we didn't have any whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!!

AA has mastered stirring....

The best apple peeler - gift from friends Larry and Charlotte; we get the most use out of if every fall.
The recipe from the the magazine Everyday FOOD October issue, pg.38, Kick it up with Emeril.
This is our favorite food magazine, very easy recipes, lots of ideas, down to earth.

Peeling the apples......

AA was thrilled with the peeler; seemed each apple was a new experience!


The fruit is in the dish, need to add the crisp topping......


Ready for the oven.......


It was yummy!!!!

I need one of those apple peeler/corer gadgets. Apple crisp sounds so good right now. Baking might be on the agenda for me and the army tonight.

Isn't it great baking with such an adorable assistant?
