caramel apple crepes



As much as I've been trying to focus on my exams, all I can think about is breakfast.  My eyes wander into cookbooks and onto blogs -- ogling pancakes, waffles and frittatas. Those of you who follow me on Pinterest know that I've been clogging your dashboards with every single granola recipe under the sun. #sorrynotsorry :)


Since I'm in a breakfast-y mood, let me tell you about those brown butter crepes that I made on Sunday.
 

The farmer's market in my neighborhood has the best honeycrisp apples ever.  Every Sunday, my dad picks up a huge bag of about a dozen apples (along with a gallon of apple cider).  Sure enough, all of the apples are gone by the following Sunday.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away! My favorite way to have my "daily apple" is slathered in warm caramel sauce and tucked inside a fresh crepe. ;). That should keep the doctor away.

With love,
Erica

Ingredients:
1 batch whole wheat brown butter crepes
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2-3 apples, cored, peeled, and diced
whipped cream for serving (optional)

Heat pan over medium heat and add butter. When it starts to bubble, add apples and cook until softened. Add brown sugar and cinnamon and cook 3-5 minutes, until fully soft and coated in butter and syrup. (Yum.)
Generously spoon apple filling onto crepes, roll up, add a dollop of whipped cream, and enjoy!

julia's banana bread

I just woke up from one of the best dreams I've ever had.  At the moment, I am sitting on Amtrak -- rolling through miles of factory towns and burnt out buildings on my way to New York City.  As much as I love the city that never sleeps, I seriously needed some sleep. Thank the Lord it's spring break and I can finally log out of my school e-mail account, hang up my backpack, and get some serious shut eye.  About an hour ago, the bumpiness of the train lulled me to sleep, and I was transported far, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city...


It's a bit of a pet peeve of mine when people tell me about their dreams.  Not their dreams as in aspirations, but their nonsensical, rambling, nighttime dreams about purple cows and police chases.  Please forgive me, but I need to share this awesome dream with you guys.  It's nothing crazy or complicated  -- just a small tree house, a winding road, and some really good banana bread.

recipe showdown: belgian waffles

It's humiliating.  It's tragic.  It's the decay of Western civilization.
... and I can't stop watching it.


Ever since I heard that little, blond, 4-foot-tall toddler's famous catchphrase"a dollar makes me holler honey boo boo," I've been in love.
She's hyperactive, uninhibited, and foul-mouthed... and I'm kind of obsessed.


But since this is technically a food blog, I should be talking about food, not the "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."  I did a little research and the Honey Boo Boo clan has some *pretty* interesting dishes.
Have you ever heard of "Sketti"?
Spaghetti, doused with a sauce that is one part margarine, one part ketchup.
However, the most infamous Honey Boo Boo specialty is her "go go juice" -- a secret mix of Mountain Dew and Red Bull that gets her "go go"-ing for her pageants.  If you aren't familiar with "go go juice," click here.  Thank me later.


Anyways, I have my own version…

sex in a pan

Did I catch your attention? Good.
This is a sinfully decadent, sinfully easy dessert with a sinfully rewarding response.

It's not the daintiest, nor the prettiest. As a matter of fact, it's basically a hot mess in a pan.
But you know what? Despite it's frightening appearance, people just can't keep their hands off of it.
I made this for the first time for my school's Winter Sports Banquet.  In the morning, I put it in the fridge, all wrapped up in foil with a big sign saying DO NOT EAT...


When I came back to get it for the banquet, some sneaky little devil had eaten half the pan.  I wonder who it was...
Was it the P.E. teacher, trying to get his chocolate fix before he had to teach another period of freshman Health?
Was it the librarian, trying to drown her sorrows due to the fact that no one checks out anything but textbooks anymore?
Was it that "innocent" little freshman boy from Baking club?
I'll never know...

However, what I do know is that som…
