Apple Crisp

Baking has become a huge passion for me. After a rough day at work, coming home to my kitchen and making dinner or baking is relaxing to me. It has become my therapy.

With that in mind, I have been trying to decide if baking/cooking is something I was to pursue as a career of some kind. I love being the behind the scene person or serving people. As we speak, I am waiting for our dinner guests. I can't wait for them to get here so I can serve them the yummy dinner that has been simmering in the slow cooker all day. I had to give up on making a dessert. They really wanted to bring something so my husband told me I had to share.

I'm slightly off topic...I have recently decided I am going to try to sell some of the things that I make. The problem with that is that every recipe I make is someone else's work. After a bit of research I figured out how to make something my own.

Here I present to you the first recipe I have written...Apple Crisp.

I had to start simple. I am really pleased with how it come out and even more proud to call it my own. I debated whether or not to share this news with you as I am not ready to share the actual recipe yet. It still needs some tweaking, as evident by the juice in the bottom of the bowl. But I was so excited about this first step that I had taken that I had to share the news.

I think I hear the door bell! I'm off to greet my dinner guests!

I agree with you 100% about coming home and going into your kitchen and baking something. It is SO relaxing. I love baking! Baking to me is a challenge, yet so fun. When I first begin preparing the recipe I think, hmmm I hope this turns out all right. I re-read every measurement to make sure I get it right. And then in the end I look at my creation and say "mmmm this is good, well done" I always pray over my food too as Im preparing it. Nothings worse when you spend alot of time making something and then it turns out horrible. And then of course, I give thanks to God when it turns out perfect! You know it's perfect when your husband says..."mmmm this is gooood"
