I have a bit more to report on The Sound of Music movie extravaganza my wife hosted, but I've decided to give everyone a break. Every single day can't be filled with liters of beer, hearty helpings of goulash, scenic views from the Alps, and frolicking Van Trapps. It's time to return to reality.
I shouldn't post today's entry for two reasons: First, my photo of this recipe resembles something you'd find in a kitty litter box. Second, the recipe betrays the slow food philosophy I strive to adhere to in the kitchen.
Despite all of this, I'm a realist. Sometimes I need to reach for a recipe that is quick, satisfies my craving, and allows me to get back to the 2nd half of the college football game I'm currently watching.
I present to you Baked Snickers and Apples:
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Peel, core, and slice a couple of apples.
- Layer the apples in a small baking dish.
- Chop a Snickers bar.
- Sprinkle the Snickers bar over the apples.
- Bake until the chocolate and caramel is melted
I feel dirty. This weekend I'll reclaim my culinary credibility by making the Apple-Almond Braid over at Simmer Till Done.
Keep your skillet good and greasy,
PS . . . I'd like to thank Hollyce for the recipe.
