Delicious Apple Pie

Do you ever have a craving for apple pie? One of our readers recently made a delicious addition to the Apple Pie Treat on our website, which makes the recipe into a legitimate Apple Pie without fiddling with a complicated crust! She sent it in to me last week, and I made it right away and loved it! I have to admit I made it three times in one week because it was just so delicious. It's quick, easy, and perfect for the fall season when you want to curl up and relax under a cozy blanket.

Here's what you do. Make the Apple Pie Treat from the website. Spoon it out of the pan onto a plate. Add about a Tablespoon of butter to the pan. On medium-low heat, melt the butter and then a handful or two of almond flour and stir together. Cook until golden brown and flip over. Drizzle some honey on top and cook for another minute or two. Pour the crumbled mixture over the Apple Pie Treat and enjoy. It is amazing.

Thank you for sending it in!

Review of Jim's Fluffy Pancakes

My husband Jim is an excellent and inventive cook. He's always thinking of new ways to do things - whether it's at work, projects at home, or cooking - and this has extended into the SCD. Thanks to him, we are all able to enjoy pancakes that taste just about the same as "regular" pancakes - only some have said they're better! And I agree! We regularly get emails raving about Jim's Fluffy Pancakes, found in the Breakfast section of the website. I'm happy that more people than me can enjoy them!

Today I received an email from a fellow SCDer who wrote a review of Jim's Fluffy Pancakes on his website. Click here for the link to his review.

And then whip up some for yourself! They're delicious with the jam which is included on the recipe. Another very rich topping is the Hazelnut Honey spread from the website. Or if you want a syrup-y feel, serve with warm honey. I love to eat them with a glass of Tropicana OJ. Yum!

Cookbook Covers

My mom and I were talking this week and thought it would be a fun idea to provide three different cookbook covers that you could use to put on the cover of a 3-ring binder and make your own cookbook. You could make dividers that match each section of recipes on the website and print and file the recipes in its specific category. This will make it easier to organize and keep all of the recipes from our website in one easy location. Actually, I need to do that too! ;-)

So my mom put three covers together right away - no grass grows under her feet! They are all fun designs with beautiful pictures from the website. Click here for the link...Enjoy!
